Case study: Clamshell Oven
Ceramicx industrial heat consultants not only provide solutions for custom infrared ovens. We have constructed a clam shell oven as part of our standard production offering. This 12KW+ unit is controlled through a HMI interface using control hardware and software from Cannon Automata and Ceramicx.
Fans and ventilation slits were used to keep the back of the insulation and wiring cool.
The oven shown in these images was bought via our US distributors Weco International. The clamshell shape was ideal for curing the outside layer of a synthetic material used in the drinks industry, where it was supplied to.
