Background

From its incorporation in November 1932, and for the next 50 years, Herbert Griffiths designed and built specialised ovens and furnaces in the Chemelec brand. His creativity, and design expertise has been inherited by his grandson Gregor Baird, and he uses this to continue the tradition of making special products. As a Mechanical Engineer with grounding in thermodynamics, computer science, and with many years exposure to process sensors and instrumentation, Gregor has extended our project scope to include “related” products such as tensile testers.

ECEFast has full sheet metal fabrication capability, and extensive experience with ceramics, refractory and insulating materials as well as heating elements, power control and process control.

This is our only standard product – and of course it can still be customised – we have supplied these for more than 60 years to paint companies, and paint users in Australia and Asia. With a reputation for long, trouble-free life and excellent performance, the Chemelec ROF ovens are recommended by the major companies in the field.

Data is available through our products section on line LINK but we are happy to discuss your special requirements for future projects.

Air Circulation Ovens

Paint Testing is one application for the larger group of ovens – Air Circulation Ovens. We are not in the business of light duty low temperature laboratory style ovens, but we are in the business of heavy duty, industrial, high temperature, standalone air circulation ovens. These have been used for reprocessing of silver from film, thermal conditioning of plastics, tempering of springs, specialised drying processes and others where strength, ability to run 24/7 and special construction features are needed.

A particular project involved development of an oven to test FIRE DOORS to the Australian Standard where the doors are subject to high temperature, and cycling pressure, and have to maintain a minimum leak rate for air.
