Purchasing Burn off Ovens

When purchasing burn off ovens, the following factors need to be take into consideration:

  • Maximum temperatures that can be achieved inside the oven will enable you to decide on the application. The products that need to be cleaned or stripped require a certain temperature. Depending on these requirements, you can choose the burn off oven.
  • The uniformity of the heat in the oven is extremely important. Cold spots within the oven will not give you perfect results. Good quality products will provide the most uniformity in terms of internal temperatures.
  • Ensure that the doors don’t allow for any leakage of air. If hot air leaks out of your oven, more heat over a prolonged duration will be required. This increases power consumption of the oven leading to higher costs.
  • The entire system should be accredited by the relevant Government and private certification bodies. Careful attention should be paid to the design and components to ensure high levels of efficiency and safety.

Purchasing a burn off oven is expensive and this decision should be taken with a lot of care. The above-mentioned factors will give you a lot of clarity regarding your precise needs. It will also help the burn off oven manufacturer understand your requirements and provide you with the most suitable product.
