Ovens can be found performing a number of tasks from the beginning to the end of a complete finishing line. Drying parts following the wash line, promoting evaporation of solvents in the paint application heated “flash off” zones as well as the curing of prime, color and top coat applications.
Each of the above outlined applications drives unique design considerations. Direct and indirect heating zones as well as management of airflow from adjacent processes is critical to successfully integrating the oven design into the overall finishing process.
Epcon can provide stand-alone finishing system ovens for your new or retrofit/refurbishment project as well as be your one stop shop for complete Finishing Systems including; Washline, Dry-off Ovens, Paint Booths, Flash-off and Cure Ovens, Material Handling/Conveyors as well as integration of the appropriate Air Pollution Control Technology.
Having developed several proprietary and patented designs Epcon is uniquely knowledgeable in the integration of waste heat recovery from cure system oven exhaust air pollution controls. Directing waste heat from your oven/ thermal oxidizer is an excellent way to reduce your operating costs and minimize your environmental footprint.
Working together with you and your chemical/coatings supplier our team of experts will configure the oven drying/ curing system solution that will meet and exceed your performance goals within your project timing and budget constraints.
