Annealing: this application is used for heating glasses or steel to ensure the development of their ductility. The process is also applied in metallurgy, manufacturing of medical devices, and material science. These industries require the use of high-temperature ovens for each of the processes.
For example, the health industry uses the annealing process to anneal plastics to syringes and catheters. This process involves heating and cooling.
Drying: drying is the general use for laboratory ovens, it removes moisture from materials, samples, etc. Forced-air ovens, vacuum ovens, and gravity convection ovens are used in various industries such as environmental, clinical, and biological for standard drying.
These ovens remove moisture from samples while lowering the boiling point of water to ensure lab samples are dried at lower temperatures.
Baking: this process requires that the product in the oven is heated without dehumidification. In the likes of pharmaceutical, manufacturing, material science industries, gravity convection ovens are used to serve the baking process.
Curing: this is to harden the chemical elements in a substance, the process involves drying and baking. It is used in several industries such as polymer research like plastics and rubber, semiconductor industries, nanotech industry, epoxies manufacturing, glues, and so on.
