International Thermal Systems designs and manufactures industrial ovens for a wide range of industries and applications. An industrial oven is designed to heat to less than 1,000° F and can be used for many process heating applications. Process Heating is defined as heating to a specified temperature and holding the temperature for a specified amount of time to achieve a change in the material’s properties or state.
There are two types of ovens that are used for process heating; the Batch Oven and the Conveyor Oven.
Batch Ovens are a type of industrial oven used for thermal processing. They can be used for a wide variety of heat processes including drying, curing, aging, annealing, stress relieving, bonding, tempering, preheating, and forming. Batch ovens are essentially heated boxes with insulated doors that process products one at a time or in groups (“batches”). The part(s) to be heated are brought into the oven in batches on racks, carts, or trucks. Production requirements can accommodate manual or automated loading.
Continuous Ovens offer labor savings and material handling efficiency over typical batch processes. Conveyors can be overhead, belt, powered roller, chain or slat. Continuous process is inherently higher throughput. Continuous oven can include multiple zones operating at different temperatures.
International Thermal Systems manufacturers both batch and conveyor ovens and we work closely with each customer to ensure the oven is designed to perfectly for the application. Our engineers are heat treat experts and listen to understand the requirements of the project.
