Convection heat is the most common form of heating technology in thermal processing. Typically involving an open flame burner, air is heated inside of a chamber and then forced over the part with fans and adjustable dampers to create ideal airflow. The burner in convection ovens can be gas combustion or electric.
Convection ovens are typically the most cost-effective initial expense opportunity to install an oven for your process heating needs. Whether trying to bring powder coating in-house, start a custom coating job shop, or need small volume heat treating; a batch convection oven may be right for you. With higher volumes of a variety of parts, a conveyorized convection oven might be the direction you go.
Trimac uses individual damper controls inside of our convection ovens to properly balance and maintain air temperature throughout the oven chamber. Top, bottom, rear or side-discharge, the airflow within the oven can be directed in a variety of ways based on the part, the temperature needed to achieve and the process that is being performed. Through our proprietary ThermalWrap™ design, convection airflow can be added to any gas catalytic infrared oven to balance the oven temperature and aid in curing powder on parts with thick and thin areas.
