Vertical Conveyor Ovens are designed to minimize use of factory floor space.

They utilize vertically moving trays and are ideal for heating or curing parts within a work cell. 

Heated parts are periodically removed from a tray and the tray filled with cold parts to pass through the oven. Trays can be indexed or move continuously. Our extensive experience working closely with our customers allows us to determine if a vertical conveyor is the correct solution for your heating process.


  • 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)
  • OS


  • Ovens processing combustible materials are required to have a fire suppression system per NFPA 86
  • 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. 

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

Electric Heat Includes

  • Separate heating element control contactors to turn off heat on malfunction of main control contactors

Gas heat includes

  • Modulating burner for 1000 BTU per cubic foot natural gas at 6” water column pressure – propane available.
  • Automatic pre-ignition purge period to clear accumulated gas or fumes
  • Push button electric ignition
  • Microprocessor based electronic flame safeguard protection to continuously monitor flame and close gas valves if flame is not present
  • Powered forced exhauster to provide combustion venting
  • Exhauster air flow safety switch to close gas valves on loss of venting
  • Two pilot valves to guarantee gas flow to pilot can be stopped
  • High and Low gas pressure switches to confirm safe operating pressure range
  • Two main burner safety shut off valves with valve seat position indicator to assure gas flow to main burner can be stopped
  • Proof of closure switch on one main valve to prevent igniting pilot unless main valve is closed
  • Leak test station at each pilot and main burner valve to allow testing for leakage through valve.


  • Digital temperature controller
  • Motor control push buttons and on-off heat switch
  • LED pilot lights
  • 5 kA short circuit current rating (SCCR)
