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.
