CUSTOMER DIRECTIVE

Our customer wanted to place their product on a powered cart assembly that would move in and out of the heated chamber for process. The product has openings that required the airflow to be vertical in order to heat the honeycomb composite material efficiently for this process. This system was specifically designed to provide a vertical up airflow through the small openings of the material. The cart design provided an easy means to move the product in and out of the heated chamber. The airflow design provided efficiency in regards to process time and uniformity.

DESCRIPTION

The DTI-1360 provides a vertical up airflow to heat this particular product. The design velocity accounts for the pressure drop through the material openings to provide an efficient process. The powered cart provides a stable surface to support the product and is open to allow process air to flow freely through it. The design of the cart allows the customer to load and unload product easily and the cart travels approximately 17 feet in just 30 seconds to move into and out of the heated chamber quickly. This design can be installed on an existing plant floor and does not required any special foundations or floor pits. The control system includes PLC control of the cart, ramp and soak temperature profile controls, accelerated cooling cycle, starting sequence for all components and flame safety systems. A paperless chart recorder is also included to record all thermal processes for product validation and record. All functions are controlled from the operator HMI (touch screen) and multiple recipes can be stored for future use for various product requirements. The entire system is fully assembled and factory tested for operational verification prior to shipment.

ALTERNATIVE CAPABILITIES

Davron Technologies, Inc. designs and manufactures ovens of this type to meet many unique process requirements, including but not limited to, the following:

  • Airflow: Designs can be completed to provide airflow from any direction within the heated chamber as required by the product. This particular process is vertical up airflow but it can be vertical down or horizontal from either side.
  • Industries Served: Aerospace, Catalyst Manufacturing/Regeneration, or any industry that requires batch processing.
  • Materials Processed: Particularly any Honeycomb or Cellular type product with a directional flow requirement. The oven /cart system can also be used for many other types of products and can be designed in any size required.
  • Other Processes: Preheating, Curing, Drying, Solvent Drying, Bonding
  • Heating Systems: Modulating Gas Fired Direct or Indirect, Electric, or Thermal Oil.

Davron exists to be the industry leader in non-standard products engineered to meet the customer's need and unique process.
