Wisconsin Oven Corporation announces the shipment of a composite curing batch oven to the McNAIR Center for Aerospace Innovation and Research at the University of South Carolina.

The composite curing oven will be used by university faculty, students and industry partners to support education and research efforts as part of the McNAIR Center’s Advanced Composite Manufacturing Laboratory – an industrial scale applied R&D facility. With a maximum operating temperature of 800°F, the oven will allow students to process and develop new higher temperature materials as they hit the market.

The electrically heated walk-in oven has a maximum temperature rating of 800°F and a work chamber of 6’W x 10’L x 6’H. The batch oven features guaranteed temperature uniformity (+/-10°F at 600° F) which was verified through a nine point profile test prior to shipment. The recirculation system utilized a 10,800 CFM @ 10 HP plug mounted blower and combination airflow to maximize heating rates and temperature uniformity of the product.

This walk-in oven was fully factory tested and adjusted prior to shipment to help reduce installation and start-up times. A 150 point quality assurance check list was completed to ensure the equipment met all Wisconsin Oven quality standards. The composite curing batch oven is backed by Wisconsin Oven’s exclusive and unprecedented 3-year WOW warranty. This warranty covers all materials for all components (less wear items).
