Grieve Corp. has released No. 980, a 500ºF electrically-heated universal style oven, which currently is used for post curing fabric-coated silicone rubber gaskets.
Workspace dimensions of this oven measure 30” W x 144” D x 30” H, Grieve said. In addition, 24 kW are installed in Nichrome wire elements to heat the oven chamber, while a 4200 CFM, 3-HP recirculating blower provides front-to-rear universal airflow to the workload, the company said.
This Grieve universal oven features four-inch thick insulated walls, aluminized steel exterior, Type 304, 2B finish stainless steel interior, plus an integral oven leg stand and one pair of truck wheel guide tracks installed on the top of the floor to accept the customer's wheeled fixture, Grieve said.
Grieve claims No. 980 includes all safety equipment required for flammable solvent processing, including explosion-venting door hardware and powered forced exhauster.
Controls on this oven include a digital indicating temperature controller. For more information, visit www.grievecorp.com.
