Industrial Oven | Calcining Oven

Calcining Oven

Calcination is a thermal treatment process in the absence or limited supply of air or oxygen applied to ores and other solid materials to bring about a thermal decomposition. Calcination furnaces are generally used to prepare raw materials for raw processing.

Overview

Calcining Ovens create phase change or remove moisture.

The function of a Calcining Oven is to heat solid materials or ores to induce phase transition, or for removal of a volatile fraction or crystalline water as water vapor. The system can be specially designed to accommodate a controlled heat-up and release rate from the product.

Each Industrial Oven project undergoes a comprehensive evaluation of every production requirement. The assessment includes areas such as production goals, part configuration and construction, part mass, temperature profile, and facility location or elevation.
