The chatter around wicket ovens has grown, do you need a new wicket oven, retro fit for your existing oven, or a custom solution. The purpose of a wicket oven is to cure a coating applied to one side of a tinplate, aluminum, or steel sheet. The Wicket Oven derives its name from the wicket carrier that actually supports the non-coated side of the material in a vertical orientation while transported through each zone of the oven.
Wicket ovens are engineered to accommodate various material sheet sizes, cure times, and temperatures. If you are interested in this equipment International Thermal Systems has your solution, ITS has the experience to design and manufacture a custom wicket oven to support your manufacturing needs.
