Burn Off / Burnout Processing

Our burn off ovens (also commonly known as pyrolysis ovens or burnout ovens) offer an extremely effective process for the removal of plastic or paint coatings and contaminants from process machinery and components. This burns off the unwanted residue and preserves the original machinery part with minimal damage, offering prolonged lifetime and multiple usage.   Our burn off / burnout ovens are custom built here at Longworth and can therefore house and clean a wide range of items and sizes.

How does a burn-off oven work?

Burn-off or burnout ovens use a process known as pyrolysis. They remove or break down organic materials that have adhered to metal parts. This works by heating the parts in a reduced oxygen atmosphere where a reaction takes place and reduces the contaminant to a residue that is richer in carbon. Any emissions that are given off during this process are put through an afterburner that heats these gasses to 850°C for a minimum of half a second. By heating these gasses to such a temperature turns them into H2O and CO2.   We also sell our burn off ovens / burnout ovens for customers to use within their own facility, and we only ever sell the same specification ovens that we use ourselves for on-site processing, giving peace of mind that the same results can be achieved. For more information on buying a burn off or burnout oven, please contact us or visit the ovens page.   Burn Off Oven Control Panel

How Does It Work?

Burn off processing involves heating a contaminated component at a controlled temperature in a low oxygen environment. This has the effect of vaporising the volatile constituents of the contaminations.

We also sell our burn ovens for customers to use within their own facility, and we only ever sell the same specification ovens that we use ourselves for on-site processing, giving peace of mind that the same results can be achieved.
