Keen K-1000 Welding Electrode Holding Oven
The K-1000 is a large capacity floor-positioned oven that stores up to 1500 lbs. of SMAW electrodes. Our floor ovens are the preferred choice for many large manufacturing, fabrication and aerospace facilities where centralized, tight control of welding electrode quality and cost is of utmost importance. Our K-1000 model maintains welding rods at ideal temperatures to prevent moisture pick-up and to optimize welds.

Our angled welding rod storage shelving is purpose-built not to inhibit natural convection- a common occurrence with competing brands that utilize flat shelving for storage. The unique welded-in shelves allow the insertion of full 50 lb. tins of welding rods up to 18 inches which is a unique benefit for nuclear and aerospace welding codes that require immediate heated storage of opened tins before use.
Most electrode manufacturers discourage ‘stacking’ of electrodes too deeply while being heated to allow for better airflow over the consumable. With our shelving design, heat reaches the electrode coating more effectively to stave off atmospheric moisture. Please see diagram below of the airflow action with our shelving design:
Efficient heating design must be supported by quality insulation. The Keen K-1000 features features thermal mineral wool insulation. It is highly thermallyefficient and is installed within the walls and door of the unit.Customization
We have the unmatched ability to customize any of our standard ovens, and/or design one-of-a-kind ovens for unique storage requirements. Welding codes are constantly changing, and Keen is ready to meet the demands of today’s welders.
