New Oven Build for Garage Propane Fired *PICS ADDED

Post by SlvrE60 » Mon Apr 11, 2016 10:16 pm

PID : Chromalox 3910-71104

Timer: Auber JSL

SSR: Auber 25A 24V DC

Heat Source: Dyna-Glo 30000 - 60000btu RMC-FA60/DGD http://www.ghpgroupinc.com/manuals/heat ... DGP_DGD%20(EN" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;).pdf

Oven size: 4x4x8

Hi guys, this is my first time posting on this site and I had a quick question. Above is my list of components. I noticed in looking at the Dyna-Glo literature, there is a thermal couple wired in to avoid over heating. My question is, is it easier to replace the solenoid with one that does not have a thermal couple integrated, or can I simply eliminate the thermal safteywith either resistors or by jumping past in in the wiring schematics? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!

Hope I gave you the info you needed in the email that you sent me.
At this time I guess I am the only one and have been for years the one that helps guys do this.

Hope it all works out good for you

Duke, you did indeed help me address my problems. I didn't realize the timer output 110v A/C. As a result I fried one of my SSR's but I don't need it. The timer will feed enough power to run the heater. I will hopefully have it up in running in the next few weeks. I'll post pictures of my control box and unit when I get a moment. Thanks for all the help, this forum is a great point of reference!

Well I purchased an EZ-50 from a fellow member on this site. I ordered blue and black poweder, planning to do some trailer wheels for my first test. I also caulked all the seams in my oven. One problem I have found is I have a gap in my door seam where the seal isn't quite thick enough. I will hopefully address this in the next few days. I will build my spray cabinet this week. For sand blasting, I am converting an old oil tank from a furnace which will provide ample space.

One question I have is, what do most of you guys use for a dip tank for cleaning? I was considering getting my hands on an old deep freezer and sealing it up and filling it with purple power. Let me know what you use if you don't mind! Thanks.

You NEED a vent in your oven if you didn't build one in... the "gap" you speak of may be perfect. See how things go before "fixing it" or make sure you have some ventilation for the air to expand and contract as the oven temp changes...

Scott,
I'm installing a 3" vent on the back of the oven. I'll try to get photos up tonight.

Oven Photos as promised, all critiques are welcome! I just picked up the blast cabinet last night. Its a little small and I may modify it to be a little larger but we will see.

A couple things I've noticed with my propane oven...

Mine tends to click off when it gets close to 400, then temp continues to rise to like 420, so I'm trying to address that to prevent over-curing...be careful of dust near the intake of the heater...and be careful of carbon monoxide...

If your PID has an auto tune then that would help stop it from going as high but will also slow it down because it will start going on and off way sooner than 400. from What I have found out with most PID they will do like you are saying but then they will settle down and get closer to the 400 set mark as the oven heats up.

Hitting 420 is fine as long as it settles out around the 400 mark. You are not over curing your powder when it does that to start with. Hell parts are still cold so you have not hurt a thing.

You can also set your PID lower if it does the 420 all the time. You call on what you want to do.

Have a good one :)
