December 7, 2016 - Thermal Product Solutions (TPS), a global manufacturer of thermal-processing equipment, announced the shipment of a Blue M industrial oven to a prominent medical device manufacturer. The batch oven is used to cure medical devices, such as catheters.
This Blue M oven has a maximum temperature rating of 650⁰ F and a work chamber of 36” W x 36” D x 48” H. The curing oven was designed to allow the customer to place trays of product into the oven without opening the door and disrupting other products. The bolt-on-door with independently timed tray slots allows the customer to slide a tray of product into the oven, where it is fully supported. The tray slots allow for continuous production. Each tray is separately timed, thus allowing for a more accurate process than a conventional cabinet oven.
“At TPS we look for innovative solutions to our customer’s needs. In this case, we wanted to provide a loading solution that allowed the customer to continually process trays in a batch style oven. The individually monitored tray slot design provided our customer with an efficient solution and resulted in a more accurate process than a typical cabinet style oven.” Paul Brown, Applications Engineer
Unique features of this Blue M oven include:
- Yokogawa UP55A Programmable Temperature Controller
- Bolt on door with five tray slots allows for loading of individual trays
- Each tray is individually monitored with a proximity sensor and timer
- NIST Certificate at 400°F
- Up to 27 kw of heat installed
