Tunnel Oven The Tunnel Effect: Grieve Presents new 550°F Tunnel Oven
Tunnel ovens quite often are a practioner's darlings: easily integrable into existing continuous processes they are able to provide different heat zones and process steps. Grieve announced the commercial launch of a 400,000 BTU tunnel oven for composite polymers.
Grieve presents the new No. 960 gas-heated 550ºF (287,8°C) tunnel oven for the processing of various composite resins and fibers. Workspace dimensions of this unit measure 75”W x 156”D x 25”H. A 400,000 BTU/hour (4,220 kilojoule/hour) gas burner is used to heat the device while a 10 HP recirculating blower provides vertical downward airflow to the load.
This oven features 4” insulated walls throughout, an aluminized interior and exterior, motor-operated vertical lift door, side doors for workload access/maintenance and integral guide tracks at the workspace entry to support the customer’s wheeled loading fixture for faster start-up of the process.
No. 960 includes all safety equipment required by IRI, FM and National Fire Protection Association Standard 86 for gas-heated equipment, including a 325 CFM, 1/3 HP powered forced exhauster. This tunnel oven also has a digital indicating temperature controller onboard.
