Custom Steam Heated Tunnel with Integrated Conveyor System

- Thursday, August 09, 2012

2 CUSTOM STEAM HEATED TUNNEL WITH INTEGRATED CONVEYOR SYSTEM 300X200

55 gallon drums are conveyed into the oven for heating.

This composites customer required a custom application for heating 55-gallon drums.  LEWCO engineers worked vigorously to develop a system that best met the customer’s needs. The result was an integrated heating / conveyor system comprised of a steam heated tunnel featuring two lanes of dual strand free flow chain conveyor. Drums are individually placed on steel plates to move through the system, which has pop-up stops for zone accumulation. Upon exiting the steam heated tunnel, drums will move onto a take-away conveyor that includes two pop-up sections of gravity roller conveyor to accommodate smooth transfer of the drums. The pop-up sections are operated manually by pneumatic valves.

Key customer specifications:

  • 12 Drum capacity
  • Maximum temperature: 230°F
  • All electrical is explosion proof rated (Class 1, Division 2, Group D)
  • Self-acting temperature control system
