Wisconsin Oven Ships Composite Curing Ovens to a Composites Manufacturer
Wisconsin Oven Corporation shipped two (2) Electrically Heated Ultimate Duty Composite Curing Ovens to a North African composites manufacturer. The composite curing ovens will be used for curing honeycomb composite material.
The maximum operating temperature of these curing ovens is 500°F and the work chamber dimensions are 8’0” W x 22’0” L X 6’0” H. These curing ovens are designed with the capability to heat 1,500 pounds of steel/aluminum and 50 pounds of composite material from 70° to 350° F at an average of 15° F per minute.
Both the curing oven bodies are constructed with bi-parting, side-hinged, horizontal swing doors at one (1) end. The recirculation system features combination airflow which maximizes heating rates and temperature uniformity of these products. The customer required guaranteed temperature uniformity of ±5° F at set points of 250° F and 350° F with the recirculation blowers operating at full speed to meet BAC 5621, Class 1 requirements.
