6. Controls
Whether you’re working with a curing or epoxy burn oven, it is important to maintain tight control over the heat levels within the oven. The technology has vastly changed since the 1970’s when burn-oven ovens were first introduced. The technology being used today is known as microramping. In this process, the temperature gradually increases in a controlled manner. During the course of the heating process, if any fluctuation in temperature is detected, the system releases a small amount of water into the interior chamber. Due to the heat, the water is converted to steam. The steam smothers the flare-up immediately. This diminishes any chance of the entire load catching fire. Alternatively, you can use thermocouples for each part to monitor the temperature of the parts individually. Rate control ovens are equipped with sensors that keep your oven from overheating. You can choose the temperature control system that suits your application requirements. Using a temperature control system is extremely important to the safe and efficient functioning of your burn off oven.

7. Customer Service
Look for a stable vendor with a reliable record of accomplishment. On purchasing an oven, you should be assured that your burn off oven manufacturer will be around to provide after-sales services for the life cycle of your product.
