Finishing and Powder Coating Ovens

Electric, Gas Catalytic and Convection Ovens

Blasdel specializes in industrial electric and gas catalytic infrared ovens and high-velocity air convection ovens. Prior to the production phase, product applications are tested at our full-scale production/lab facility. Our testing facility includes a number of industrial ovens equipped with infrared heating elements such as ceramic generators, ceramic panel heaters, coil-o-rods, quartz tube, gas catalytic and convection or high-velocity air ovens.

In our testing lab, we also evaluate heating processes, various control features and material handling options appropriate for your heating needs. Our infrared ovens can process metal, glass, plastic, wood, and fabric substrates. To meet your short and large production run requirements, we build batch systems as well as well as indexing and continuous conveyor systems. The flexibility of your oven can be enhanced through the integration of independent control zones, special material handling systems and automated loading systems. Additionally, we can customize our equipment with different configurations to suit your specific testing needs. This includes high volume testing equipment.

Convection Ovens and Cooling Tunnels

Convection Ovens and Cooling Tunnels

Custom Convection Ovens and Cooling Tunnels

Our high-tech convection ovens and cooling tunnels are equipped to meet your needs from air drying to plastic curing and finishing. At Blasdel, we offer an array of custom heating solutions to accommodate our diverse customer base ranging from the aerospace and automotive industries to pharmaceutical companies. Our convection ovens work with a range of materials including glass, plastic, metal, rubber, and wood. Customize your oven with our conveyor systems, independent control zones, material handling systems, and horizontal and vertical designs.

High velocity air convection ovens recirculate air to remove solvents and water from coatings and to accelerate the cure. Blasdel’s unique closed-loop recirculation design allows for minimal heat loss and eliminates the need for air knives or air curtains due to the balanced system. Temperatures ranging from ambient to 500º F are available, and a PID temperature control system is used for even heat, end-to-end and top-to-bottom. Cooling tunnels may be fabricated as above but with no heating capacity. In the cooling tunnels, two blowers force outside air in while drawing the heated air from the parts out the opposite end. Simply passing air over a part results in significantly faster cooling.

Custom Thermoforming Ovens and Equipment


Blasdel Enterprises designs and manufactures the most uniformly heated thermoforming ovens in the industry.  For over 35 years, we have been the leader in supplying infrared thermoforming ovens to the glass mat thermoplastic (GMT) and thermoplastic industry.Our thermoforming ovens have precise temperature control and quick processing capabilities to allow for flexibility when processing multiple blank sizes.  The approximate cure cycle and optimal curing temperature required for manufacturing your part can be thoroughly evaluated prior to the design phase in our testing facility.  We have multiple ovens with different types of emitters to determine the best infrared emitter for your application.  Our thermoforming ovens are controlled using either PID temperature controllers or PLC systems which integrate with our conveyor controls.   For maximum flexibility, you would specify the design for zoning the heating zones to optimize your thermoforming process. All Blasdel thermoforming equipment is custom designed to your needs and we work closely with your thermoforming process to insure that you are getting the best and correct equipment.

Company Profile

Custom Infrared Ovens

Blasdel Enterprises is a leading designer and manufacturer of industrial ovens and control panels, including infrared ovens, high volume air ovens, convection ovens, conveyors, control panels, and thermoforming ovens. Bill and Jackie Blasdel established Blasdel Enterprises in 1982 as an expansion of the WB Panel Company, originally founded in 1974, by acquiring the assets of Industrial Ovens (Dial-O-Temp) and the Ceramic Oven companies. We design infrared and high-velocity air ovens, control panels, conveyors, pick and place robots and other specialty equipment. In 1986, a new 30,000 square foot facility was built which allowed expansion of the business by adding the assembly and programming of bag packaging machines for American Newlong, Inc. and incorporated test oven systems for both electric infrared and catalytic gas infrared.

With customers in a variety of markets including automotive, medical,  construction, furniture and appliances utilizing diverse substrates such as plastic, metal, wood and glass.  Blasdel Enterprises has the experience to design equipment for your application.  A full scale production lab set up enables our engineering team to recommend the best oven for you based on actual test results.

We take pride in manufacturing nearly every component in our oven systems in house.  Well equipped with machine tools, fabrication equipment and AutoCAD, Blasdel can control quality, delivery, costs and design specifications to provide the best value in ovens, conveyors, thermoforming equipment and control panels.

Blasdel Enterprises, Inc. is a family business focusing on customer service and satisfaction.  We have the capacity, not only to meet the needs of large corporations, but also provide affordable custom designed equipment to small companies.
