A wide variety of heat processing applications uses industrial batch ovens. Each equipment has a unique heating application, part size, and temperature requirement, and a custom batch oven is often the most effective choice for their specific heat processing needs. If your parts require pre-heating or post-heating before installation, welding or assembly, we can custom design an industrial batch oven tailored to your specific process.
What to consider in Batch Ovens?
The plenums that deliver the air should be fully adjustable on both the delivery plenums and the return air plenums. For the majority of ovens, the oven doors will sag over time if not engineered well. It is essential to find a manufacturer that will guarantee their doors forever.

If you’re still trying to figure out which type of oven you need, it’s necessary to understand the advantages and disadvantages of each type.
There are different configuration styles that you can customize batch oven. Unique configurations include walk-in, pass-thru, and truck. They can be engineered to accommodate different sizes of products. You can use the batch in various heating processes including tempering, forming, preheating, drying, aging, stress relieving, curing, bonding and annealing. Loading a batch oven usually involves racks or baskets for transferring the parts for thermal processing into and out of the unit. The grouping of parts in the oven can recommend one potential downside, primarily when you have similar items that need to reach set point temperatures.
The characteristics of the batch oven are useful in different applications. When you decide to purchase one for your heat processing needs, you may give us a call at Eastman Manufacturing. We will walk you through the operations and process involved.
