FORCED CONVECTION OVENS
WEIBER Forced Convection Ovens use a motor driven circulating fan that is placed between the unit’s inner and outer housings. A timer is placed inside them that control the fan and the heating element. This kind of ovens work faster than conventional ovens because it uses the fan that keeps on circulating to ensure that even distribution of heat and faster cooking takes place.
Forced convection ovens are basically designed to save time of heating. The temperature that is inside these units are moderated through hydraulic type thermostat or with a digital controller microprocessor based temperature controller cum indicator to achieve maximum accuracy.
These are also known as heat advection. There are many types of mixing that can also utilize forced convection to basically distribute one substance to another. Forced convection can even happen by natural means such as when the heat of a fire causes expansion of air and bulk air flow. In this type of process the fan rapidly circulates hot air forces heat faster than would naturally happen due to simple heating even without a fan.
