Glenro Infrared Conveyor Oven... Dries Products Up To 65 Inches Wide
Paterson, NJ; 11 November 2003 - Glenro has built an electric infrared conveyor oven for drying products up to 65 inches wide. The conveyor oven features a bank of six Glenro Radplane(TM) electric infrared heaters rated at 9.8 kW each, controlled in a single zone, for a total power of 58.8 kW. The conveyor oven measures 9 feet in machine direction, 7 feet across machine direction, and 6.5 feet high.
An air input plenum covers the six infrared heaters to provide air across the full width of the heated area. Air is delivered to the product line through nozzles formed between the infrared heater elements. The combination of infrared heat with air accelerates drying. The conveyor oven also includes two exhaust hoods. Both the air input plenum and the exhaust hoods are connected to blowers, and both have blastgate dampers for airflow control.
The temperature of the conveyor oven is regulated by an SCR control system, housed in a NEMA 12 enclosure, that uses a thermocouple feedback control loop to regulate voltage and maintain a constant infrared element temperature. This makes the conveyor oven highly energy efficient reducing costs to the customer. A speed controller regulates the conveyor belt speed between one and ten feet per minute. The conveyor belt is coated fiberglass.
The conveyor oven is ruggedly constructed with a structural steel frame for heavy service. Adjustable entry and exit reflectors and bottom reflector panels allow the user to optimize heat distribution inside the oven. Hinged and latched double-wall side door panels permit easy access to the interior of the oven. The electric infrared conveyor oven is shipped prewired to minimize installation time and costs to the customer.
