Lanemark has completed the installation of a second oven retrofit heating system at powder-coating subcontractor B G Penny.

The facility builds on a previous Lanemark installation at the Coventry site and is centred on burner replacement on an existing ‘box oven’.

‘The larger capacity second oven sits alongside the previous installation and, similarly, handles an overhead conveyor rail from which parts are suspended,’ said Malcolm Penny, works manager at B G Penny.

He explained that the latest oven is closely linked to a powder-coating process line and handles a variety of materials, ranging in thickness from 1mm to 15cm.

This wide variation calls for precise temperature parameters to be specified and maintained depending upon the job in question.

‘The heating requirement can range from 50 to 220C and, in some cases, calls for a temperature variation of only +/- 3C,’ Penny continued.

‘This target has been met every time to date, even with very temperature-sensitive products, and we have found on a number of occasions that the temperature has actually held within just 1C.

‘Heat up times of 25min to 190C help with process scheduling and throughput rates,’ he added.

At the heart of the Lanemark installation is the company’s FD15-C (GA), which synchronises gas and air mixture to ensure that no excess air is produced.

In turn this minimises emissions and, at the same time, delivers heated air sufficiently clean to enable direct firing of the burner into the combustion chamber.

The installation now means that all box ovens at the site are fitted with Lanemark burners, which have been installed on a retrofit basis.

Both systems also benefit from Lanemark Burnercare, which supplies maintenance and servicing plans alongside 24hr emergency call out if ever required.
