- Quicker Heating Rates and Recovery Times: Each oven features a high-pressure recirculation blower, which includes fully enclosed and pressurized supply ducts. As a standard, the equipment is designed for combination airflow arrangement which ensures even and uniform heat distribution throughout the work chamber, even with varying loads.
- Consistent Temperature Certification: Composite curing ovens are typically guaranteed and certified for ±10° at 350° F temperature uniformity. Tighter tolerances and certification at other temperatures are available. Equipment is completely tested prior to shipment and must pass an extensive quality inspection prior to shipment.
- Reduced Maintenance: Ovens boast heavy-duty construction, brand-name components and quality workmanship. Equipment is backed by an Exclusive 3-Year Heat & Recirculation Warranty.
- Energy Efficiency: The composite curing batch ovens are also available with the E-Pack Oven upgrade. This optional Energy Efficient upgrade package includes thicker wall panels, higher efficiency motors and a few other energy-saving items.
