Custom-built No. 924 mold preheating oven from Grieve Corp

Conveyor-type mold preheating ovens are becoming more popular, according to Grieve Corp. (Round Lake, IL), on account of their ability to minimize machine downtime. Custom-built No. 924 from the supplier, for example, is an electrically heated, two-zone 350°F belt conveyor oven with workspace dimensions that measure 24 inches wide by 5 ft deep in Zone One and 24 inches wide by 20 ft deep in Zone Two, with 15-inch height throughout. Incoloy-sheathed tubular elements provide heat.

Tools pass through a 1-ft open belt loading zone, 5- and 20-ft insulated heat zones with recirculated airflow, and a 1-ft open-belt unloading zone. A 2300-cfm, 2-hp recirculating blower in Zone One and 6000-cfm, 5-hp recirculating blower in Zone Two provide vertical downward airflow to the load.

This Grieve belt conveyor oven features 4-inch-thick insulated walls, an aluminized steel interior and exterior, plus an 18-inch-wide, heavy-duty flat wire conveyor belt with variable speed of 1.4-27.8 in/min. Side access doors are provided throughout for load inspection and maintenance. [email protected]
