Gas Fired Powder Coating Batch Oven for Automotive Supplier
Wisconsin Oven Corporation announced the shipment of a gas fired heated walk-in batch oven that will be used for curing powder paint on various wheel rims and automotive parts. The powder coating oven has sufficient capacity to heat 1,500 pounds of steel from 70° to 450°F within 45 minutes when loaded into an ambient oven. Powder coating parts is an important process during manufacturing because it prevents corrosion and increases the durability. The heat is distributed as evenly as possible and this reduces the potential for issues with the curing.
The walk-in powder curing oven has a maximum temperature rating of 500°F and work chamber of 8’W x 20’L x 8’H. The recirculation system utilizes combination airflow to maximize heating rates and temperature uniformity of the products. With uniform air distribution along the entire length of the work chamber, quality cured finishes and optimum cure cycles are achieved in every use. Bi-parting doors allow for easy loading and unloading of parts. A door limit switch saves energy by switching the burner to low fire when the doors begin to open.
“Wisconsin Oven’s powder coating oven line provides excellent temperature uniformity which results in consistent part quality every batch. Our goal is to maximize our customer’s production rate and minimize any part rework.” Nick Toci, Sales Engineer
