Burn Off Ovens for Polyurethane Removal

Burn Off Ovens for Polyurethane Removal

Polyurethanes bind, encapsulate, seal and insulate millions of parts and products throughout major industries such as Apparel, Appliances, Automotive, Furnishings, Electronics, Marine, Medical, Building and Construction. They are used in microcellular foam seals and gaskets, spray foam, durable elastomeric wheels and tires (such as roller coaster, escalator, shopping cart, elevator, and skateboard wheels), automotive suspension bushings, electrical potting compounds, high-performance adhesives, surface coatings and sealants, synthetic fibers (e.g., Spandex), carpet underlay, hard-plastic parts (e.g., for electronic instruments), hoses and more.

In order to reclaim and recycle the myriad metal parts from these products, not to mention the molds and tooling used in their manufacture, these polymers must be removed.

Why Use A Burn-Off Oven to Remove Polyurethane from molds and manufacturing tooling? 

Pollution Control's InertGas™ Cleaning Furnace (Burn-Off Oven) was designed by a polymer chemist and is manufactured specifically for the removal of polymers. Virtually pollution-free, it's patented Controlled Pyrolysis® process eliminates the use of chemical strippers and other toxic materials. The InertGas™ industrial oven evenly distributes the temperature in the cleaning chamber allowing polymers to flow to a secondary collection chamber for easy removal and disposal.

Controlled Pyrolysis®: It’s safe and Pollution-Free.

Pyrolysis is a gentle process that extends the life of parts and tooling. It safely removes polymers by vaporizing contaminants into smoke. The smoke is then burned in an afterburner completely consuming all pollutants leaving only invisible, odorless, and harmless water vapor and carbon dioxide to be discharged out of the exhaust stack. The oven’s easy-to-operate and self-adjusting control system reduces labor costs, machinery downtime, and any risk of damage to parts. Automatic time cycles ensure the oven runs only long enough to clean parts. 


Benefits of our Plastic Removal Furnace

Designed by a Polymer Chemist Safely removes polymers, adhesives and chemicals from extrusion screws, breakers, plates, dies, nozzles and other metal parts
Safe and Easy to Operate Diagnostic Panel fully monitors and displays 15 operating functions
Safe and Gentle Process Carefully reduces oxygen at the point of polymer decomposition and then increases the atmosphere to eliminate carbon residues
