Industrial Oven | Radiator Core Bake Oven

Core Bake Oven

Radiator Core Bake Ovens are batch process ovens designed to bond copper and brass radiators and heat exchangers. The thermal process heats up the soldering flux applied to the cores causing them to reflow, creating a secure bond between dissimilar metals.


A radiator Core Bake Oven is a batch process oven. Process times are typically anywhere from 1 to 5 minutes depending on size, thickness, and weight of radiator cores ranging from automotive to industrial-rated.

Depending on the type of solder used, there may be acidic gases released in the process that will deteriorate steel. That is why our oven interior is constructed entirely of 316 stainless steel — to maximize the life of your oven while minimizing maintenance costs. All process fans (recirculation and exhaust) are designed with 316 stainless steel airstream components.

Cores are placed flat on a manual 316 stainless steel cart complete with v-groove wheels and a separate hook for inserting the cores into the oven. Process time is controlled by a cycle timer to ensure proper bonding.

Each Radiator Core Bake Oven is custom-designed for specific applications ranging from automotive to industrial. Each is designed for radiator cores of all shapes and sizes: up to 5’ x 5’ with our smallest available standard model & up to 7’ x 10’ with our largest available standard model. Our Standard Core Bake Oven line contains three different size ovens based on industry needs:
