The Grieve Corp. recently unveiled its No. 853, a new electrically heated belt conveyor oven for curing coating and heat-shrinking plastics. The 30-inch wide by 96-inch deep oven features an open belt loading zone, an insulated heat zone with recirculated airflow and an open belt unloading zone, the company says. A 48-kilowatt Nichrome wire heating element provides the heat, while a 4200 CFM, 3-HP recirculating blower furnishes vertical downward airflow to the load. The oven also features 4-inch insulated walls, a Type 304, 2B finish stainless steel interior, a stainless steel exterior, as well as a 24-inch wide, 1-inch-by-1-inch Type 304 stainless steel flat wire conveyor belt with one-quarter-HP motor drive with speeds that vary from 0.9 to 17.6 ipm. The Grieve No. 853 also includes several safety and control equipment features such as a PVC electrical conduit, a remote control panel, a 325 CFM stainless steel powered forced exhauster, a six-point thermocouple jack panel through the oven wall, a digital-indicating temperature controller; and a manual reset excess temperature controller with separate contactors, along with a recirculating blower airflow safety switch.
