International Thermal Systems (ITS) designs and builds equipment that reduces energy use. For example, ITS manufactures wicket ovens with higher-density insulated walls.
Adding thicker high-density insulated walls has been shown to minimize shell loss by approximately 30 percent.
Wicket ovens are engineered to accommodate various material sheet sizes, cure times, and temperatures. International Thermal Systems has solutions, with the experience needed to design and manufacture a custom wicket oven to support customers’ manufacturing needs.
The purpose of a wicket oven is to cure a coating applied to one side of a tinplate, aluminum, or steel sheet. The wicket oven derives its name from the wicket carrier that actually supports the non-coated side of the material in a vertical orientation while transported through each zone of the oven.
ITS wicket oven features Include:
- Provides the highest possible product quality.
- Minimizes rejection rates and ghosting on sheet.
- Lowers energy use.
- Minimized customers’ total operating cost.
ITS can provide a new wicket oven, a retro fit for an existing oven or a custom solution.
ITS works with global customers to determine their needs, develop the right solution, then install and start up the equipment. Customers can then count on the ITS expertise to maximize the efficiency of their equipment.
International Thermal Systems is a global original equipment manufacturer of industrial ovens, furnaces, and aqueous washers for automotive, aerospace, power generation, battery manufacturing, building products, foundry, ice builders, and metal packaging industries.
