In 2013 Pyradia Industrial Ovens manufactured a Walk-in oven for CTA – Aerospace Technological Center. The technical R&D facility is located in Saint-Hubert, QC, and has for mission to support the aerospace industry and improve its competitiveness by giving it a technological edge.

The AMS 2750E Class I certified Walk-in oven with a temperature uniformity of ± 5°F within a working zone of 6ft (L) x 8ft (D) x 5ft (H) is operating at a maximum of 500°F.

“The temperature uniformity we required was ± 5°F. The uniformity delivered is actually ± 3°F between 200°F and 470°F.” says Robin Dubé, M. Sc. A. Researcher Engineer at CTA.

In 2014, the composites materials development team of CTA challenged Pyradia to modify the equipment and more precisely the temperature control algorithm to improve productivity when curing large parts.

“Thanks to a thermocouple located on the part itself, we are now able to control the temperature according to the volume of the part following an automated calibration sequence. This equipment upgrade saves us 5 working days on our pre-production tests.  The return on investment was immediate” explains Robin Dubé. “Pyradia equipment and services are greatly appreciated”.
