The heating systems are wired so if a heater fails, the dryer will operate at near full heat input until downtime can be scheduled. At WOC, we understand the importance of minimizing downtime and this design is intended to keep the equipment operational until it can be serviced. Tom Trueman

Wisconsin Oven is pleased to announce the shipment of two (2) Electrically Heated Multi-Zone Curing Ovens to the composites industry. These ovens will be used to cure carbon fiber threads.

One of the curing ovens has six (6) zones and is rated for 250° C (482° F). and has work chamber dimensions of 19'0" wide x 16'4" long x 2'0" high. The second oven has two (2) zones and is rated for 260° C (500° F) with work chamber dimensions of 19'0" wide x 41'4" long x 2'0" high. Guaranteed temperature uniformity of ± 5° C @ their respective maximum temperature ratings was documented with a profile test for both ovens.

The curing ovens each feature a wire mesh rolling filter system in each zone. The filter system is plug mounted for ease of removal and maintenance and utilizes exterior crank handles at each zone that are used to advance the material as needed. Both units were also designed with Wisconsin Oven’s energy efficient E-Pack™ upgrade which includes thicker wall panels.

Unique features of the curing ovens include:

  •     Top-down air flow for optimal distribution along the product
  •     Personnel access doors for ease of cleaning, maintenance and service
  •     Wire mesh rolling filter system in each zone
  •     E-Pack™ upgrade to improve energy efficiency
  •     OSHA compliant ladder and railings to provide access to roof mounted blowers

These ovens were fully factory tested and adjusted prior to shipment from our facility. All safety interlocks were checked for proper operation and the equipment was operated at the normal and maximum operating temperatures. An extensive quality assurance check list was completed to ensure the equipment met all Wisconsin Oven quality standards. This equipment is backed by Wisconsin Oven’s Exclusive and Unprecedented 3-Year WOW™ warranty (parts only).
