What are the different types of industrial furnaces?

Industrial equipment is necessary to increase the profitability of any production company, and one machine that incredibly speeds up processes is the industrial conveyor.

Conveyors allow a uniform flow from one process to another, as well as the distribution of bulk cargo or the filling of containers. They are widely used in the mining, agricultural, food, pharmaceutical, shipbuilding, automotive, and even in hospitals and shopping centers. You are probably wondering how industrial conveyors can be used in such diverse production and service sectors. The answer is simple; there are different types of conveyors, each with characteristics that make it perfect for a certain industry. If you want to know how to choose an industrial conveyor, just read on!

Depending on the final product

The choice of a suitable industrial furnace meets various criteria, such as energy consumption, the fact that its gas emissions comply with the parameters established by environmental regulations and, depending on the product for which it will be used, that it has the required capacity and heating time. Having said this, it is clear that the oven used in a bakery cannot be the same as the one used in a pizzeria or the one used in the metal industry: it is important to consider the final product. 

Depending on its energy source

If you want to buy an industrial oven, you must also consider the energy source it will have; an electric or gas oven.

Electric industrial ovens: Simply plug them into an electrical outlet to use them. Electric ovens are environmentally friendly, are installed in small spaces, and are equipped with fans that distribute heat more evenly. In an electric oven, you will have no trouble controlling the speed at which the temperature rises. In addition, because they heat quickly, these furnaces are classified into two types: those that produce physical effects on the products (heating and melting) and those that produce chemical effects on the products (reduction without melting, synthesis and calcination).

Gas furnaces: this type of furnace can be used even in the event of a power failure and the cost of its use is lower than that of electric furnaces. The main drawback of this type of furnace is that its energy source is not environmentally friendly, which is why fewer and fewer people choose to use it. However, gas ovens do allow food to be cooked gently and crispy, which is why they are still welcome in some companies in the catering sector. 

Depending on the type of cooking

If you are looking for an oven for gastronomy or hotel use, in addition to taking into account the energy source and the final product, you must also take into account another classification of industrial ovens, which refers to the type of cooking desired.

Conventional ovens: the main characteristic of these ovens is that they require the type of food to be heated to be programmed to establish the level of heat required. In general, these ovens are made up of two thermal plates that heat up and don't let the heat escape.

Convection ovens: they are characterized by their high efficiency. These ovens are used at low temperatures to obtain excellent results; they allow for the proper cooking of different types of food by the fact that they have a built-in fan that distributes heat. One of the great advantages of industrial convection ovens is that they allow to obtain high quality tasty, moist and crunchy food.

Steam ovens: these ovens have recently been launched on the market, but they are very appreciated because they offer a healthy cooking method, without the addition of fat to food.

Combination ovens: these are industrial ovens widely used in hotels and restaurants. Their main advantage is that they are steamed and boiled.
