  • Industrial Ovens: For Dinner and Beyond

    As children we associate a word with a single object that we have experience with, blissfully unaware that the object we think defines the word may actually mean a number of other things as well. As simple and delightful as childhood is, being grown-up and understanding the nuances of words and the multiple uses of objects we thought we understood can be fascinating too. For example, ovens can do much more then bake a casserole or heat up an old dish of chicken Parmesan in my personal kitchen. Industrial ovens...

  • Walk-In Ovens for Chemical Processing - LEWCO

     A customer in the chemical industry recently purchased two LEWCO Walk-In Ovens to heat materials in 55-gallon drums. In this process the heat evaporates water inside the drums to recover the material’s solid contents. This was a critical step in the customer’s process. The ovens, model EWR06FD, are heated by direct-fired natural gas and have a maximum temperature of 650°F., with a guaranteed temperature uniformity of +/- 10°F. The ovens are equipped with a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) interfaced with a touchscreen Human Machine Interface (HMI). A Eurotherm 3216 temperature...

  • Continuous Process Annealing Oven for Automotive Taillights

      LEWCO recently delivered its ninth continuous process annealing oven to a tier-one automotive supplier. The oven is used to anneal plastic automotive lenses at a maximum temperature of 220°F. The process relieves stresses created during welding to avoid cracking or clouding of the lens during assembly. While inside the oven the parts will travel through three separate temperature zones; preheat, soak, and cooling. Once they pass through the cooling zone the parts are unloaded and packaged....

Industry Information

Annealing Ovens

Annealing is a rather general term that refers to the heating of a metal or other material to a specific temperature and then letting it cool very slowly. The purpose of annealing is generally to soften, enhance ductility and improve cold working properties in various materials. It may also make materials more malleable, provide stress relief or create a new microstructure.

Annealing works by heating a material to a temperature that relieves its internal stress without causing deformation, and then cooling it at a rate that maintains its strength. Once a material has gone through the annealing process, it can more easily be cut, polished or drilled with less risk of fracture. Annealing ovens most often process metals, but they can process other materials as well, including glass and plastics. Annealing ovens enhance the material softening operation by allowing their users to tightly control and closely monitor the heating and cooling process, as well as by allowing for proper recrystallization to occur within the material. Frequently annealed metals include aluminum, brass, copper, steel and other various alloys. While providing flexibility, annealing ovens also allow exceptional temperature uniformity.

Annealing ovens can be used within a variety of industries, including technology, transportation, aerospace, automotive, healthcare and industrial manufacturing. Annealing ovens have many customizable features to meet the specific needs of any potential user. They may be heated by various means, including gas burner systems, electric heaters and radiant panels. Annealing ovens may also feature a full inert gas system, if needed, including seal welded interior panels, gas piping, control valves, flow meters and more. Air within ovens can flow vertically in a top-down or bottom-up arrangement, horizontally in a cross flow or in a combination of these. Ovens may come equipped with differential airflow switches to alert a user of airflow loss, and they may be augmented with many types of conveying systems, product trays, floor tracks, product carts and floor designs. Other optional features of annealing ovens include: welded structural steel framework, heavy gauge aluminized or stainless steel interior sheeting and air distribution systems, hinged access doors, modular build, high-density insulation, digital controls, remote access controls and conformity to NFPA, IRI, FM, OSHA, JIC, NEC, UL and CE requirements, as necessary.
