Blue M Batch Oven

The Industrial Batch Ovens have for years been meeting a variety of test and production applications. Their reliability and fine performance have made them the choice of many industries.

Benefits of the Blue M Batch Oven

  • Standard Cabinet Oven (Model DC), available in an array of sizes
  • Standard options available for a High Power, a High Temperature (750°F maximum), and a Truck-In (DCRI) version
  • High volume horizontal air recirculation system and electric heating system allow for maximum temperature uniformity in performance
  • Differential airflow switch if loss of airflow is detected and shuts down oven's heaters
  • Excellent reliability and performance ratings

Features

  • Nichrome wire heater elements for durability
  • Centrifugal type blower wheel for efficient air flow through the system
  • Horizontal air flow
  • One-pass air flow
