Baker Furnace Ships Heavy Duty Industrial Oven for Heat Treating Aluminum Parts

Brea, CA – April 20, 2017- Baker Furnace announced the shipment of a gas fired batch oven to an aluminum forging company. The industrial oven will be used to pre-heat large aluminum ingots used to manufacture parts for the Aerospace industry.

The maximum temperature rating of this industrial oven is 1000°F with work chamber dimensions of 14’ W x 11’ L X 6’ H. The batch oven pre-heats large aluminum ingots to 1000°F. The ingots are then removed from the oven and placed in a forging press that forms the aluminum into a shape. The batch oven chamber is designed to withstand the impact of aluminum ingots weighing over 3,000 pounds as a forklift operator drops the aluminum ingots into the oven chamber.

“For this project, we needed to pay special attention to the chamber and floor design to ensure that no damage would occur from the impact of the aluminum ingots being loaded. A 10” thick hard castable refractory floor was one of the design features to make sure the oven could withstand the loading process.” – Tim Bacon, VP Business Development

Unique features of this industrial oven include:

  • 10” thick hard castable refractory floor
  • Vertical lift door with pneumatic locking mechanisms
  • Interior bumper guards to withstand impact
  • UL 508A listed control panel
