Thermal Product Solutions, a global manufacturer of thermal-processing equipment, announced the shipment of one Blue M Class A, Mechanical Convection Oven to a company in the oil and gas industry.
This Blue M convection oven has a designated temperature range of 15°C above ambient to 82°C due to the large solvent load in the chamber. The interior of the work chamber itself has dimensions of 25 W x 20 D x 20 H. The oven will allow the customer to process products containing flammable vapors inside the oven while maintaining safe operating conditions. It features special construction that evacuates solvent vapors from the chamber as well as reducing ignition sources.
Special heaters were also installed to increase the heat output inside the chamber. This allows for a larger exhaust rate while maintain ramp times and temperature within the working chamber. The horizontal air movement from left to right maximizes heating rates within the oven chamber.
“This particular oven was designed and reinforced to operate in an inverted position. The entire conditioning system, including the exterior exhaust system, was modified to incorporate the design change.”
– Jonathan Young, Product Manager
