Thermal Product Solutions (TPS, New Columbia, Penn., U.S.), a global manufacturer of thermal processing equipment, announced on Feb. 22 the shipment of a Gruenberg Vertical Conveyor Oven to the manufacturing industry.
The oven has an operating temperature of 270ºF with a maximum temperature of 400ºF. The chamber’s interior dimensions are 52 inches W x 60 inches D x 92 inches H, and is made from stainless steel. The oven also retains a 4-inch-thick insulation and an exterior of stainless steel and cold rolled steel. The conveyor is comprised of an attachment chain with tray supports.
According to TPS, the Gruenberg Vertical Conveyor Oven has a high-volume, 6135 CFM horizontal airflow system installed. The 7.5 HP direct drive motor drives the 15-inch-diameter circulation blower on the bottom of the oven. The interior transport system has a vertical accumulator and has a capacity for more than 60 trays. It has two independent vertical conveyors (one going up and one going down).
“The client had very specific needs that we met with this vertical conveyor oven. In addition to the oven, they needed sixty-six aluminum perforated trays with reinforcement bars and a flat side for a smooth loading surface,” says Mike Schneck, Gruenberg product manager. “We were happy to provide these trays, making sure the complete experience with Gruenberg was one that left a positive impact.”
