New to the Benefits Gas Catalytic IR? 

The Benefits

  • Energy Saving: Gas Catalytic IR systems typically use as much as 50% less energy that conventional convection ovens
  • Space Saving: Typically Gas Catalytic IR systems take up 50% less floor space when compared to conventional convection ovens
  • Production Output: Reduced air movement within oven means less cross contamination. Parts can be placed closer together on production lines
  • Improved Quality: Gas Catalytic IR gives a more even heat distribution. This means a better overall cure with no under or over cure spots
  • The 3:1 Rule: On average it takes a third less time to cure a part in a Gas Catalytic IR oven than in a conventional convection oven

The Applications

  • E-Coat: Dry off and curing
  • Liquid Finish: Dry off and curing for solvent and water based liquid coatings and finishes
  • Powder Coating Ovens: For all metal substrates, from small to large components
  • Pre-Gel Ovens:  For use on all substrates as a means of quickly allowing powder to flow and gel, prior to full cure
  • Curing Finishes on Heat Sensitive Substrates: Engineered Timber, Plywood and MDF
  • Food Drying of grains, food stuffs, pulses etc.
  • Thermo-forming of large products such as spa pools, dinghy hulls, portable toilet facilities etc.
  • Leather Curing including liquid finishes on all types of leather
