rubber products are found in every car and every home
in the country. Whether a seal or a belt, extruded
rubber products have unique characteristics that make
it ideal for appliance, construction, and automotive
quality rubber extrusion requires precise control
of each stage of production. None of these stages
is more critical than curing. Quality, productivity,
and operating costs depend upon the accurate control
and uniformity of the temperature and airflow throughout
the curing stage. And the accurate control and uniformity
of the temperature and airflow are solely dependent
upon the design of the curing oven itself.
Engineering follows a systematic approach to the design
of rubber extrusion curing ovens. We thoroughly analyze
your needs and design an oven to optimize the rate
and uniformity of heat transfer. The result of optimized
heat transfer is increased productivity and quality
of the extruded product.
Engineering ovens provide optimized heat transfer
through high velocity and variable velocity convection.
Unlike other convection ovens which rely on
higher temperatures and minimal air movement, Thermovation
Engineering high velocity convection ovens deliver
more effective and efficient heat transfer at lower
temperatures, thereby increasing productivity and
quality at reduced operating costs. The results can
be found in nylon wire from Glassmaster to rubber
seals from Avon Automotive.
high velocity convection is created by forcing large
volumes of heated air into a pressurized supply plenum
chamber along the length of the zone to deliver high
velocity streams of heated air along and across the
extrusion, accurately and uniformly. Accurate temperature
control within each zone is provided by fast-response
temperature sensors and modulating burners. Inverter
controlled blower motors provide adjustability of
the velocity of the air and thereby effectively control
the rate of heat transfer. These temperature and airflow
adjustments may even be incorporated into any PLC
product profile for each zone and each extrusion for
a result, our rubber extrusion ovens increase quality
and productivity. All of our ovens hold temperatures
to within two degrees of the set point along and across
the extrusion. Our ovens not only require less space,
but cost less to operate than the systems they replace.
And all of our ovens are safe, reliable, and maintainable.
Furthermore, our ovens can be integrated with microwave,
salt bath, or infrared boosters and cooling systems
in a complete system, from the exit of the extruder
