Would you like to…
Cure test panels rapidly? Record and document results? Repeat cure profiles - anytime?
The IR Smart Oven is a patented product (Patent #6,648,486)
designed to test your coatings and processes in your own facility. BGK created the IR Smart Oven to provide valuable data to aid in the process development and support of your infrared curing customers. The oven is designed to provide an accurate and repeatable testing environment.
Independently Controllable Infrared Heat Zones
For purposes of flexibility, the top and bottom infrared heaters are zoned independently. This is very useful when you need to duplicate a customer's oven that may have top heat only. When testing for optimal cure speeds turn on both top and bottom infrared heaters.
Accuracy and Repeatability
Repeated testing shows ± 2% variance on temperature. The oven controller maintains oven parameters so that uniform testing can be repeated, accurately. This oven allows you to check coating performance from batch to batch under the exact same infrared conditions.
Temperature Profile Development
As the coatings industry moves toward accelerated cure schedules, you will be able to duplicate any cure time and temperature that your customers require. The BGK IR Smart Oven will allow you to cure, record, document and make changes to virtually any coating cure parameters.
Closed Loop Temperature Controls
Rapid response infrared lamps require the speed of optical temperature measurement for consistent heat profiles. BGK has long been a leader in controlling infrared heat sources. Controls are accessed via PLC with an operator interface screen.
