Infrared Booster Ovens

These versatile ovens are modular in design, have been engineered for use with all coating types and can be configured to meet all parts sizes and shapes.  
• Particularly effective where increased line speeds and multiple control zones are required to achieve productivity objectives.
• Features energy efficient, instant on/off emitter control performance.
 

BGK Smart Oven

Designed for test coatings and processes on customer sites.

  • Provides valuable data to assist process development.
  • Simulates an accurate and repeatable testing environment.

BGK Glass Ovens Systems

   Flat Glass Oven And Drying Systems

  Meets a wide variety of requirements for the glass market.

  • Focused on the application of high intensity infrared technology.
  • Compact design utilizing T3 short-wave infrared emitters
  • Provides unmatched drying capabilities and energy efficiency

Glass Preheat Ovens

Available in a full range of efficient wave length control for rapid, uniform heat up and accurate input temperature control.

  • In glass applications, bond strength is dramatically improved at the gasket and glass interface.
  • Close loop temperature control delivers glass to the injection mold process at the desired temperature.

 

 

 

Flash Off Ovens

Typically used between coating allowing the coating to bake or dry and release the initial solvents.

  • Flash off time helps prevent bubbling or blistering caused by insufficient evaporation time.
  • Helps reduce rework by providing proper evaporation before entering a curing oven or a second coating process.

BGK Electric Infrared

Short Wavelength - T3 Emitter
For pinpoint accuracy, rapid heat-up and instantaneous cool down and infinitely adjustable power, BGK’s Short wavelength IR is your solution. Utilizing a short wave T3 tungsten filament, sealed in a quartz envelope of halogen gas, the thin filament, being of little mass, is very reactive to the voltage applied to it. The infrared heat output reacts immediately to changes in applied voltage and provides rapid response time. Offering a long life of over 5,000 hours, when used at full voltage, you can count on a quality finish, time after time.
 

Medium Wavelength – Tubular Element Emitter
A reliable nickel chromium resistance coil is housed in a quartz tube providing a non-vertical burn design. Providing even heat patterning, produced through the tubular shaped emitters, and dual reflector system, make the heater popular for heat sensitive substrates such as plastic components and wood products. Most effective in applications requiring surface temperatures on the 120° F to 325° F (49° to 163° C) range.
 

Medium Wavelength – Coil Emitter
Unique sheathed tubular element, with nickel chromium resistance coil, packed in magnesium oxide, is engineered to ensure consistent temperatures and optimum radiant heat transfer efficiencies. Ideal for applications with complex geometric part profiles and temperature requirements of 250° F to 450° F (121° to 232° C), Versatile yet affordable.
 

Long Wavelength – Cone Emitter
Utilizes a high-grade chromium wire, that is helically wrapped around a ceramic cone-shaped core, and encased in a high-mass, hardened slurry, creating a durable, efficient long wave emitter. The ceramic cone’s modular and sturdy design allows the heater to be configured into virtually any pattern. The even heating pattern produced by the con-shaped emitter, and parabolic reflector, makes this heater most popular for heat sensitive substrates such as wood and plastic. The perfect choice for applications requiring temperatures of 300° F (149° C) and below.
