Infrared Conveyor Oven Designed for Preheating Plastic Antifreeze Bottles
Wisconsin Infrared Systems designed and manufactured an electric infrared conveyor oven for a leading automotive supplier to heat plastic antifreeze bottles that are deformed during the production process. After heating the bottles, the paper labels are able to be removed and the plastic recycled.
The oven has a 6" wide x 3'6" long x 1'6" high heating chamber and a 1,400°F maximum emitter rating. Removable exterior panels allow for easy access to the infrared heating and cooling systems. The infrared conveyor oven uses two RH electric infrared heaters for a total output of 19kW and 27 amps at 480/3/60.
The conveyor system uses a high carbon steel flat wire belt to move the bottles through the oven. The conveyor utilizes a potentiometer-controlled variable speed DC drive with electronic torque limiting, adjustable from 10'-20' per minute. Two emergency stop buttons are located on the oven, one near the oven entrance and one near the oven exit.
The NEMA 12 control enclosure utilizes SCR power controllers, complete with back-up contactors and includes an on/off zone selector switch and conveyor switch. The temperature is controlled by a Honeywell UDC 2500 temperature controller.
