Thermal Processing for Industrial Markets


Our pledge to contribute to making the best and most efficient use of all energy resources is apparent in the products that Despatch supplies to companies in the business of energy. We provide infrared firing and drying furnaces to the world’s leading solar cell manufacturers so that they can produce the highest efficiency cells. Oil exploration companies test and calibrate their equipment in Despatch ovens and fuel cell manufacturers use them to cure vital components.

Fuel Cells and Batteries

Despatch Industries offers heat treating equipment for the growing fuel cell and energy storage industry. Despatch collaborates with major industry players, providing equipment worldwide. Applications include heat treating materials for both the automotive and energy storage industries.

Oil and Gas

Oil and gas companies use Despatch industrial ovens

Despatch has become a trusted partner with many companies involved in the exploration for oil. The petroleum/oil industry relies on Despatch Industries for burn-in and performance qualification testing of down-hole electronic logging equipment. Typical processes include simulating down-hole conditions for oil well drilling and calibration.

The PTC Series ovens are well-suited for this industry to accommodate efficiency and productivity. The PTC oven is a forced convection oven designed for heating long and narrow loads such as tubing and extrusions. A space-conscious footprint is combined with removable end caps to allow placement of several ovens end- to-end to accommodate any length requirement.


 Despatch industrial ovens are used for heat treating metals and alloys

Despatch ovens and furnaces are used for annealing and hardening copper, steel, aluminum and titanium parts. Despatch equipment processes everything from small staples or fasteners running through a conveyor oven, to large metal structural components that are trucked into a batch oven.

Heat treating often requires processing at high temperatures for extended periods making energy efficiency a high priority. Despatch ovens and furnaces have thick wall insulation, heavy-duty high temperature door gaskets and air that is recirculated through the heater box and back into the chamber for greater energy efficiency. Despatch ovens feature high velocity uniflow airflow, meaning that the air moves both horizontally and vertically, offering exceptional temperature uniformity. Adjustable louvers direct heated air for a precise airflow pattern suited to specific parts. These ovens and furnaces are built to withstand the rigors of industrial metal manufacturing with sturdy, welded, double wall construction. 


 Equipment manufacturers use Despatch industrial ovens for thermal processing

Equipment manufacturers require heat treating equipment for a wide variety of applications. Despatch ovens are used for curing painted finishes, drying solvents and water, annealing plastics and metals and stress testing components. Whether an application requires batch or continuous processing, Despatch offers the highest quality ovens and furnaces with superior temperature uniformity and the durability to withstand the rigors of an industrial manufacturing environment. Despatch has a wealth of experience designing custom ovens and furnaces to suit the unique requirements of our customers.
