Industrial Oven Case Study

The Company

A trade coater, specialising in architectural ballistrading, wrought iron fencing, gates etc. They provide a customer focused, quality coating service. Started in a small unit with a booth and small box oven, now has a 5,000 square feet facility with two new containerised shot blasting units, small box oven, medium sized Airflow box oven sold in 2005 and a new Airflow 'shuttle' oven installed in 2007. They also have two large water wash booths for powder coating and a welding bay.

The Problem

Before the shuttle oven was installed they had a very inefficient conveyorised LPG fired tunnel oven, which was installed to process larger components up to 7m in length. The problem was the oven was on for 9 hours per day with an exceptionally high running cost.

The Application

Industrial oven & powder coating application for the coating of steel based products. The efficient box oven approach was a more efficient oven and allowed them to substantially reduce the time the oven was on.

The Benefits

  • Worked with Professional Coatings and the Carbon Trust
  • Resulted in an annual saving on LPG cost of approximately £32,000
  • Payback for the shuttle oven and conveyor system was 15 months
  • More efficient plant system and through put in the manufacturing cycle
  • Optimum Industrial solution to their problem

The Solution

Airflow provided a 7.2m deep x 3m wide x 2.5m high 'shuttle' oven with three non powered tracks running through the oven. The tracking gave them all the flexibility to process smaller components whilst also being able to cater for the largest components. The conveyor track was extended on either end of the oven for load and unload which allowed them to coat a batch load place in the oven with optimum loading of the oven, to start the cure cycle which takes approximately 45 minutes and remove the parts for cooling. Meanwhile the next batch was being coated.
