Conveyor Oven - Industrial Conveyor Oven

Conveyor Oven

Industrial Conveyor Ovens can be used for a wide variety of heat processes including drying, curing, aging, annealing, stress relieving, bonding, tempering, preheating and forming. Conveyor ovens are utilized for continuous processing and can easily be incorporated into existing production lines.

There are a number of reasons that make an industrial conveyor oven a good choice for heat processing:

  1. High Production Volumes
  2. Production Automation
  3. Process Flexibility

ITS manufactures industrial conveyor ovens and works closely with the customer to determine the best oven design for the application.

Overview

Conveyor Ovens offer a variety of conveyance configurations. International Thermal Systems designs and manufactures both indexing conveyor ovens and continuous conveyor ovens. 

High process temperatures limit conveyance material options and eventually force drive components (ie: bearings, drive chain and motors) outside the heated zone completely. There are four types of conveyors that are commonly used in heat processing applications; flat wire, woven belt, chain and roller.

In either a horizontal or vertical configuration, the Conveyor Oven offers the ability to handle high production rates. Multi-lane conveyor ovens are also available which allow processing multiple part sizes at varying curing times. Read about a dual-lane curing conveyor oven recently shipped to a parts manufacturer.

International Thermal Systems manufactures conveyor ovens specific to the customer’s application requirements and we also offer standard models in 8 sizes. Standard models offer faster delivery and at a reduced cost. Read more about our TruTemp™ Standard Conveyor Ovens.

Conveyor Oven Conveyance Systems

Belt Conveyance Systems horizontally convey the parts through the oven on a conveyor belt. A Belt Style Conveyor typically interfaces with a processing line. The oven conveyor belt is set to the line pass height and speed. ITS manufactures both continuous conveyor ovens and indexing conveyor ovens.

Overhead Conveyance Systems feature an I-beam, enclosed track, or power and free conveyor where the part(s) are typically hung from a carrier or rack and travel through the oven in a continuous or indexing mode.

Chain Conveyance Systems convey the product through the oven, in a horizontal or vertical configuration, where the parts or carriers are transported on a single strand or multiple strands of engineered chain.

Powered Roller Conveyance Systems convey the product or pallets horizontally through the oven on powered rollers in a continuous or indexing mode.

Walking Beam Conveyance Systems are typically used in indexing type applications where product spacing is critical or where environmental conditions preclude other conveyance styles. Bearings, drive components, and position sensors are located outside the oven.

Pusher Conveyance Systems feature an internal or external pusher mechanism that indexes the parts through the heat processing chamber. Pusher Conveyance Systems use rollers, low friction rails, or slide beds to support the product through the oven.

Each Industrial Conveyor 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.
