A reliable source for Drying Ovens information and leading Drying Ovens Companies & Manufacturers.

A drying oven refers to equipment used to remove moisture from the chamber of an oven to dry samples as quickly as possible. This process works by introducing fresh dry air to the chamber and expelling the warm moist air simultaneously, allowing for rapid drying of the samples. Read More…

Drying Ovens In the food production industry, drying ovens are used to remove moisture from food in order to preserve it. Snacks like bagel crisps, pretzels, crackers, assorted corn products and other examples all require drying before they can be packaged. In manufacturing, an even greater variety of possible drying applications exist. Heat treatment is a major component in many drying processes.

What is a Drying Oven?

Drying ovens result in high-performance drying and heating. They can be used for evaporation, sterilization, baking, incubation, and other applications. Drying ovens also vary in size, capacity, and shape based on their reasons for use.

Drying Oven

How Drying Ovens Function

Drying ovens function by removing moisture, and this process begins as the chamber load experiences defined temperatures at atmospheric pressure inside the chamber.

Next, thermal energy enters the chamber by forced convection, radiation, or natural means. This is followed by the complete surface heating system assisting from the rear of the interior walls.

The dying occurs much faster with higher temperatures and drier air. This simultaneous heating and drying laboratory-given function causes the contained samples to dry, thus removing the contained moisture.

Types of Drying Ovens

Industrial ovens all share the same core concept but come in different types for different uses. Depending on the industry, industrial ovens vary in time and volume capacities, heating mechanisms, and other key elements.

Conveyor Dryers

Conveyor dryers are used in processes requiring the continuous production of small and medium-sized products. Conveyor dryers are also ideal in areas with automated mass production because they fit perfectly in most production lines.

Conveyor Dryer

Vacuum Drying Ovens

Vacuum drying ovens are versatile machines used in most cases in engineering, research, and other industries. These industries may require drying in a low-pressure environment.

Vacuum Drying Oven

Vacuum drying ovens also minimize oxidation and may include a digital interface automated for monitoring processes.

Convection Drying Ovens

Convection drying ovens work to gently accelerate the dehydration process by relying on high temperatures. Convection drying ovens are ideal for processes including baking, pre-heating, sterilization, aging, and thermal storage.

Convection Drying Oven

Rotary Drying Ovens

Rotary drying ovens are commonly used in the metal manufacturing industry. These types of drying ovens enable faster drying times without oxidation. Rotary drying ovens have an energy-efficient design that may also interlace with additional processes, allowing for low operating costs.

Flotation and Roll Support Web Dryers

Flotation and roll support web dryers are specialized drying ovens used in web and fabric coating, packaging, and textile manufacturing. These types of drying ovens usually feature a stable airflow and precise temperature control, improving overall efficiency.

Roll Support Dryer

Vertical Tower Dryers

Vertical tower dryers are ideal in the sense that they make optimal use of space while at the same time adding an industrial drying oven for operation. These dryers can also help reduce overall costs while simultaneously improving quality and turnaround time.

Vertical Tower Dryer

Applications and Uses of Drying Ovens

Drying ovens can heat surgical cloths, blankets, infusion solutions, and rinsing solutions in hospitals and clinics.

In the electronics sector, drying ovens are used for drying components, burn-in testing, and degassing epoxy resins.

In the food sector, drying ovens are used for stability testing. Some other uses of drying ovens also include the aging or tempering of metals and plastics.
