Box ovens

This type of oven is typically used for manual lines or high capacity power and free lines.

A special type of box ovens are the ones used in a crane operated system; here the products or items enter the oven vertically by cranes.

Like the tunnel ovens, box ovens are convection ovens ensuring effective heat transference to the product.

The powerful fans distribute the heated air through ducts in the entire length of the oven.

We supply a construction with a uniform and constant temperature within a few degrees.


The products or items can be led into the oven by means of a conveyor system or on wagons you drive in. The bottom of the oven can be designed to fit the wagons.


Box ovens are normally used for manual lines or if the conveyor conveys the products stop-go automatically.


The ovens can be constructed with different types of doors. The number and design of the doors will be adapted to the specific line.


The ovens can be provided with direct gas heating or indirect oil/gas/steam heating through an efficient heat exchanger. The ovens can also be provided with electrical heating.

Application and use

The most usual applications are:


As default the oven construction is galvanized steel. As an option, the inside parts of the construction can be produced fully or partly from mild or stainless steel.


The sides of the oven are designed and constructed to create the lowest possible heat transference from the inside to the outside.

The thickness of the mineral wool insulation is adapted according to the requested maximum temperature. As default all our ovens are constructed for an operation temperature of 250º C.


The detachable steel cassettes on the outside of the oven make it easy to check and replace the insulation material. Service of the circulation and heating units is solely and unimpeded carried out from the outside of the oven.

We deliver a welded construction for the channels. Some customers with a special need to clean the ovens regularly, want easy access to the channels. In these cases AABO-IDEAL offers a unique and easy to use hinged channel front.
