TPS ships Gruenberg cabinet oven to R&D industry


Thermal Product Solutions (TPS), a global manufacturer of thermal-processing equipment, announced the shipment of a Gruenberg cabinet oven to the research and development industry. This Class B oven will process up to 5 gallons of water per batch from 1,500 pounds of metal powder.

The maximum temperature rating of this Class B cabinet oven is 250° F, and the work chamber dimensions are 48” W x 48” D x 48” H. This Gruenberg cabinet oven is constructed from a structural steel frame that supports the fully welded 304 stainless steel chamber liner and the exterior sheet metal. All interconnecting struts are non-continuous, which keeps the exterior cool.

The Gruenberg drying oven features one circulation blower direct drive in a conditioning plenum chamber in the top of the oven. This blower directs air through a diffusor panel on one side of the work chamber and flows horizontally across the product. The air exits the work chamber on the opposite wall back to the heaters for reheating and recirculation.

“This cabinet oven has the design capacity to dry 1,500 pounds of metal powder from 3 percent moisture to zero percent moisture content. Three 48” x 48” x 6” tanks were used in the oven, and the shelves were reinforced accordingly,” said Denny Mendler, Gruenberg product manager.

Features of this Gruenberg cabinet oven include:

  • Programmable temperature controller
  • High limit controller to prevent overheating
  • SCR power control
  • End of cycle process timer
  • Reinforced shelf slides (600 pounds each).
  • UL508A control panels.
  • Main power disconnect switch.
  • Exhaust HEPA filter.
  • Horizontal airflow to maximize heating and drying rates.
