Definitions of Industrial Ovens The following terms are commonly used with industrial ovens:
Baking oven: An industrial baking oven is similar to a normal household baking oven, except on a much larger scale. These gigantic ovens are used for cooking foods. One popular type is the pizza oven, which slowly slides pizzas through the oven on a gigantic roller. Another is a rotisserie oven, which spins the food while cooking to ensure even heat distribution.
Curing Oven: Ovens that are built for high temperatures. This causes a chemical reaction for certain objects who are placed inside the oven under high heat conditions. For example, a freshly applied powder coating is placed inside a curing oven to bond the powder coating onto the object.
Drying Oven: Also known as kilns, but keep in mind a drying oven does not reach the same high temperatures as a ceramic kiln. However, like kilns, drying ovens are used in industrial settings to completely remove moisture from anything placed inside the oven. Their drying capabilities means that they are often used for drying paint applications and treatments.
Batch Ovens: Sometimes called walk-in ovens because of their large size, walk-in ovens have different areas for curing, drying and baking. Businesses that depend on their ovens to supply them with goods, like a bakery, often need the size and versatility of a batch oven.
Clean Room Ovens: Designed to help sterilize equipment and parts for a cleanroom, clean room ovens can kill bacteria. They are typical used in the biotech and semiconductor industries.
