Walk-In Oven Shipped to Water Products Manufacturer

Grieve has shipped a Model WRC666-500 electrically-heated walk-in oven to a leading manufacturer of water infrastructure products such as valves, fire hydrants and pipe connections.

The oven is being used to pre-heat valve bodies ranging in weight from 25 lbs. to 425 lbs. to 240 F to 260 F. After the bodies are heated, a rubber seat is attached by means of an adhesive spray. Then the whole part goes into a compression molding machine so the rubber can bond to the valve.

"Since our customer has two different-sized loading trucks, we made the insulated floor with two sets of truck tracks to match their dimensions," said a company spokesperson. "Other options we provided include an interior light, a window in the door and a stainless-steel pipe port through the oven side wall. A programmable temperature controller, an SCR power controller to eliminate mechanical contactors and extend heating element life and a four-color tower light to indicate various oven conditions are also installed on the unit."

Grieve WRC Series walk-in ovens feature a rear heat chamber and combination air flow. They are available in electric or gas and can reach temperatures of up to 800 F. Thirteen standard workspace sizes range from 96 to 768 cu. ft.
