Press Release Summary:
Suited for production of brake pads, dual-zone, 162 kW oven employs 30 medium-wave emitters on wire belt conveyor for curing anti-corrosion coating that provides protection to pad against water damage during operation. Control panel features 5 selector switches that each control 6 emitters, which may be set to zero, 50%, or 100% power. Control panel also features potentiometer that sets conveyor speed from 0.5-2.0 m/min.

Infrared Application of the Month: Brake Parts Oven
An important stage in the production of brake pads is the application of an anti-corrosion coating, which provides protection to the pad against water damage during operation. To accomplish these strict requirements Heraeus Noblelight recently designed a two zone 162kW infrared oven, with 30 fast response medium wave emitters, on a wire belt conveyor and a control panel for both emitters and conveyor.
The control panel features five selector switches, each controlling six emitters so that these can be set to zero, 50% power or 100% power, as required. Similarly, a potentiometer provides speed control of the conveyor between 0.5 and 2.0 meters per min, so that the power and dwell within the oven can be varied to provide a curing profile to suit a range of pads.
