One solution to this problem is to use components from an existing model. However, even this can be problematic. If the existing model has not been used for a while, the components will be caked with grease, dirt, and oil. A component in such a state will not be fit for use. However, this can be resolved by using a burn off oven. Burn off ovens are specifically designed to burn away elements such as grease, dirt, paint, and oil from automotive parts. This allows shop owners to be able to reuse an old component for a restoration project.

How is this Done?

The burn off ovens used for this task comprise a stainless steel radiant tube, which provides uniform heating. The tube covers the entire bottom of the oven. The components are placed on a metal cart, and are wheeled into the oven. The afterburner operates at provides heat above 1500°F. This helps to eradicate any contaminants present on or within the component.
