Booster Ovens

The high intensity electric infrared booster ovens offer an efficient method to increase production on your paint line. They also can be used for transition from liquid to powder on your existing production line. The modular infrared booster oven designs can be installed outside or inside your convection oven without modifying your line.

Infrared Booster benefits are:

  • Increased Line Speeds
  • Instant On/Off Emitter Control
  • Multiple Zones of Control
  • Modular Design
  • Use with All Coating Types
  • Rapid Heating
  • Reduced Floor Space
  • Flatline Oven Systems

    Heater Modules

    BGK Finishing Systems designed versatile electric infrared heater modules to be used in a variety of processes. The modular designs allow for configuration flexibility, while the emitters deliver efficient, clean heat energy for your applications.

    • Heavy Duty Construction
    • Polished Aluminum Emitter Covers
    • Self-Cleaning Ceramic Reflector
    • Applications up to 100 watts/in2

    BGK infrared heater modules use T3 quartz emitters in 1600, 2500, 3650, 3800 or 5000 watts. Emitter life is estimated at 5000 hours when operated at full lamp rated voltage; longer life can be expected when operating at a reduced voltage. Standard infrared heater modules are available in lengths of 24", 33", 46" and 66.25" and in widths from 6-96" (in 6" increments).

    Features:

    • Full Range Infrared
    • Instant On/Off
    • Wide Variety of Sizes
    • Flashing, Drying and Curing
    • All Coating Types
    • Infinitely Adjustable Power

    Options:

    IR Smart Lab Ovens

    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.

    Four Modes of Operational Control

    image

    MANUAL

    Enter desired % power output for the heaters.  The start and stop buttons turn the heaters on and off.

    image

    TIME/POWER

    Enter desired % power output and the desired amount of time.  The temperature the panel achieves is the variable (up to 20 steps possible).

    image

    POWER/TEMP

    Enter desired % power output and the desired panel temperature.  The time it takes the panel to reach temperature is the variable (up to 20 steps possible).

    image

    TIME/TEMP

    A PID control algorithm ramps the part temperature to set-point via operator defined maximum power output (slow or fast).  The power output required to maintain part temperature is the variable (up to 20 steps possible).

    Smart Logger (Optional) 

    The IR Smart Oven can be equipped with the Smart Logger. This allows for creation of data files to store and/or print test data.
