Grieve oven handles curing, heat shrinking

Sept. 16, 2020
The No. 853 is able to precisely calibrate dwell time, allowing it to combine tasks that would normally require two ovens.

No. 853 This belt conveyor oven from Grieve has a stainless-steel interior and exterior, 4-inch-thick insulated walls and a maximum operating temperature of 500 degrees Fahrenheit. The oven is heated by Nichrome wire heating elements, and a 3-horsepower recirculating blower provides downward airflow. Its flat wire conveyor belt is driven by a ¼-horsepower motor, and its speed can range from 0.9 inches per minute to 17.6 inches per minute. It was built for a customer for curing coatings and heat-shrinking plastics.

What’s new? The configuration of the No. 853.

Benefits Precise control. The No. 853 can calibrate dwell time to accomplish both curing and heat-shrinking functions in a single pass. This process would normally require two ovens, or a heating chamber over a conveyor.
