Heraeus have recently developed a new concept in Gas Catalytic IR Batch Ovens, which means that those with small production requirements can benefit from all the advantages of Gas Catalytic IR. By clever use of PLC controls, it is possible to replicate the thermal profile of a conventional gas fired batch oven, but reduce cycle times by 50% or more.

Gas Catalytic IR heaters can be arranged to suit any part shape to enable full infrared coverage.
A Gas Catalytic IR Batch Oven is shorter than a normal oven. The size depends upon space availability and required part and batch size. A typical oven will normally consist of two sections.
