Wisconsin Oven Ships Walk-In Oven for Aluminum Age Hardening

Dec 14, 2016

Wisconsin Oven Corporation shipped one (1) natural gas fired walk-in oven to a manufacturer in the die casting industry. This walk in industrial oven will be used for aluminum age hardening.

The aluminum age oven has a maximum temperature of 509°F and chamber dimensions of 5’ W X 10’ L X 8’ H. The customer required guaranteed temperature uniformity of ±10°F at 509°F which was documented through a standard nine (9) point profile test. The recirculation system features a combination air flow arrangement that utilizes a 8,600 CFM @ 10 HP direct driven blower that is low maintenance (no drive belts), quiet and energy efficient. The combination airflow arrangement provides both horizontal and vertical upward airflow which maximizes heating rates and temperature uniformity of the product.

“Our standard batch ovens are designed with wall and roof panels featuring Wisconsin Oven’s patented panel seams that provide 25% better insulating efficiency. This design improves the energy efficiency of the oven which results in improved temperature uniformity and decreased operating costs.”- Mark Schahczinski, Sales Engineer
