EQUIPMENT: Modular Catalytic IR Ovens
January 1, 2007
VULCAN CATALYTIC SYSTEMS, LTD.: This company has introduced new modular line of catalytic infrared (IR) ovens for booster, pre-gel and full cure applications of powder and the drying of liquid coatings on metal, wood and textiles. The ovens are designed to replace convection ovens with fully reflected IR technology and reportedly can provide up to 50% savings in existing BTU consumption, faster line speeds, and no cross contamination. Catalyzing natural gas within the oven to heat a part directly, this flame-less technology produces a uniform, low intensity heat and can be provided as a stand-alone booster/gel oven or inserted into a convection oven.
