There are few paint lines operating without the inclusion of some form of oven or forced drying tunnel. Air drying systems are typical systems that would not require a curing oven, but the tendency with high volume plants is to provide forced drying, mainly to maintain the production requirement and facilitate the off-loading process.

Ovens include Dry-off ovens, required to remove water from products after a pre-treatment plant or for the curing of various top coat finishes.

Curing ovens are purposely designed to meet with process requirements as specified by the Paint suppliers.

Typical requirements would include:

  • Degassing ovens;
  • Paint Curing Ovens;
  • Electrocoat Curing Ovens;
  • Powder Curing Ovens;
  • Specialised heat treatment Ovens.

Types of Curing ovens include:

  • Batch ovens for relatively small capacity paint lines;
  • Straight through Ovens with air seals for medium to high volume paint lines;
  • Straight through Camel Back Ovens (sometimes referred to as ‘A frame’ type Ovens;
  • ‘U’ type (or multy pass) Camel Back Ovens.

Oven Heating is normally decided by the most cost effective medium available and include:

  • Electrical elements (convection);
  • Electrical (Infra red) Often used as a first zone in powder ovens or for total heating of relatively flat products.
  • Direct or indirect heating by LPG;
  • Indirect diesel oil or HFO;
  • HPHW or Steam (Indirect).
