Vertical air flow cabinet ovens specifically are designed for work loads where the heated air must pass upward through the load, such as open ended cylinders or hanging parts.

 Outside Dimensions

  • Blower motor overhang 10″ at rear on 550°F models, 17″ on 700°F and 850°F models.


  • UL Listed Control Panel
  • Meets the Requirements of the Following Standards:
  • NFPA 86 (Standard for Ovens and Furnaces)
  • NFPA 70 (National Electric Code)
  • FM (Factory Mutual)
  • OSHA


  • When processing combustible material fire protection should be considered
  • Processing flammable solvents or vapors requires forced exhaust to provide safety ventilation

Safety Equipment

  • Adjustable manual reset excess temperature interlock to turn off heat on malfunction of main temperature controller
  • Recirculating blower air flow safety switch to turn off heat on loss of recirculated air flow
  • Electrical interlock shuts off heat if power to recirculating blower is interrupted

Standard & custom-made Grieve ovens in action

CAUTION:  Ovens processing combustible material are required by National Fire Protection Association 86 Standard for Ovens and Furnaces (NFPA 86) to have a fire suppression system.  If flammable solvents or vapors are present in an oven, OSHA requires conformance with NFPA 86 Class A Oven requirements.  A powered forced exhauster and other non-standard safety equipment must be added.
