For parts with up to 2% combustibles
Maximum 800°F (427°C)
PCPC's DryCleaner furnaces are designed to safely and economically remove small amounts (1 to 2% by weight) of varnish, insulation, epoxy, paint, oil, grease, plastics, etc. primarily from electric motor stators, transformers, end bells, engine blocks and other metal parts.
Industrial Dry Cleaning Oven Process
DryCleaner Furnaces (industrial dry cleaning oven) clean metal parts by the process of pyrolysis, which is literally "burning without flame" or the chemical decomposition of organic material by the action of heat. The material on the metal parts must be cured, meaning no solvent vapors are present. During the industrial oven cleaning process, organic material is driven off as smoke leaving only a thin layer of ash, which can be easily removed with a water rinse. The smoke is then processed through a 1400°F afterburner, consuming the remaining pollutants and exhausting into the atmosphere primarily water vapor and CO2 which is invisible, odorless and harmless. DryCleaner industrial drying ovens use a simple water spray "fire extinguisher" system based on furnace temperature to prevent ignition or over-heating.
