The ultimate in safety...Pollution Control’s patented InertGas™ models can handle any combustible that can legally be removed with heat, even space-age engineered plastics. Our InertGas™ ovens expand the Controlled Pyrolysis® system with enhanced abilities to clean parts with heat rather than with chemicals. InertGas™ models leave the primary burner on all the time during the initial “pyrolysis” stage of the cleaning cycle to produce an oxygen-deficient atmosphere inside the furnace, i.e., approximately 10% oxygen instead of the usual 21% as in the air. This reduction in oxygen eliminates the danger of fire and allows for the safe processing of highly combustible materials in larger volumes. During the initial pyrolysis stage, the furnace temperature controller and the stack temperature controller each operate double water spray mists at double set-points for maximum protection. During the final “oxidation” stage of the process, the primary burner cycles on and off, increasing the oxygen level in the oven to completely oxidize any remaining char or carbon off the parts. Other features include back-up water spray in case of clogged nozzles, manual-reset high-limit switch, automatic time cycles, automatic cool-down and an operating diagnostic panel. Optional melt collectors shorten cycle times and fuel expense because material melts and flows does not have to be completely pyrolyzed to be removed.
