Specialised Infrared Ovens

Ceramicx industrial infrared specialised ovens are fully customised to the individual materials, process parameters, and characteristics required for uniform heating in niche applications.

Whether these ovens are designed as standalone equipment or integrated into a further macro industrial process, due to our in-house manufacturing resources, Ceramicx can design an oven to fit your needs. By having so many in-house capabilities, we have the flexibility to approach a project differently to other companies that outsource or only produce standard heating systems.

Ceramicx specialised ovens provide exceptional results for extreme and precision infrared heatwork for specified processes. Designed by our engineers, every specialised oven is custom-built and manufactured to meet your own specifications and standards, for use across multiple industries.

Using our full product offering of Ceramicx infrared heating elements installed as standard, specialised ovens can be designed for large or small volume applications. Together with custom temperature ranges, physical size, and custom configurations all meeting your requirements, a specialised infrared oven will give you optimal energy-efficiency and output.

All Ceramicx specialised ovens are designed and built bespoke by our engineers and fully customised to your specifications. Manufactured using a stainless steel framework with specialist insulation and aluminium clad steel reflectors, your oven is built to include multiple heat zones with custom heater geometry to accommodate your chosen infrared element type.

Using Ceramicx, CE approved infrared radiant heating elements to suit your processes, each oven can feature complete and bespoke custom controls for precision heating tolerance in °C, thermocouple monitoring, and element failure detection. But your own safety features can also be built-in, including emergency stop features and safe to touch areas.

A quality-assured Ceramicx specialised infrared oven will give you energy and cost-efficiency with increased accuracy and productivity, and can also include:

  • Aerospace Industrial R&D Furnace Oven

    Weco International, our business partner in the United States introduced us to the client, a private aerospace manufacturer that provides spaceflight services. The client needed a heating system that could replicate the conditions of atmospheric re-entry in a controlled setting.
