Wisconsin Oven Corporation announced the shipment of a LP Gas Fired Heavy Duty Car Bottom Oven with Fume Incinerator to a leader in the oil and gas industry. This car bottom oven will be used for prebaking drill pipe joints.
The thermal clean oven has a maximum operating temperature of 800° F and work chamber dimensions of 8'6" wide x 50'0" long x 8'6" high. Guaranteed temperature uniformity of ±30° F at 750° F was verified through a twenty (20) point profile test conducted in an empty oven chamber under static operating conditions.
The industrial oven has sufficient capability to heat 70,000 pounds of steel from a cold start to 750° F within 75 minutes. The load car is designed for a maximum loading of 172,000 pounds. The fume incinerator is designed to incinerate the exhaust fumes from the oven and has sufficient capacity to handle 5,000 CFM of exhaust.
