Large Electric Motors Require Large Process Ovens

The capacity of an electric motor repair shop is measured by the size of its curing and heat treating ovens. Ovens dictate the size of electric motors that a service center can repair. All stators, rotors, and armatures of large electric motors must be cleaned and dried. Baking the motors in an oven is necessary to dry out the windings following cleaning and to improve the resistance of the windings to ground. Also, the insulating resin applied to the windings during rewinding or reconditioning must be cured by baking in an oven.

Inman Electric Motors has four process ovens, two for baking, and two for heat treating. The largest of our two curing ovens has interior dimensions of 12’x 12’ x 17’ with one million BTUs capacity. The smaller of our two curing ovens has interior dimensions of 6’ x 6’ x 12’. The largest of our two heat treating ovens has interior dimensions of 14’ x 12’ x 12’ with one million BTUs capacity. The smaller of the two heat treating ovens has interior dimensions of 6’ x 6’ x 6’. Having the largest ovens in the Midwest gives Inman Electric Motors the capacity to repair very large rotating equipment.
