Keen K-1000CH Welding Electrode Holding Oven


Brief Product Description:

Protect costly low-hydrogen welding electrodes from adverse atmospheric moisture contamination with the Keen K-1000CH welding rod holding oven. This high-quality, American-made product provides a consistently dry, heated environment for long term storage of welding rods. Unique compartmented shelving system is welded-in and accommodates up to 24 / 50 lb standard size welding electrode boxes. This reliable, floor-positioned welding rod oven has a variety of standard features and rugged design elements not found on other brands. Standard digitally-adjustable, ON/OFF microprocessor-based controller with ±1 degree accuracy, over-temperature control, welded door hinges, forklift pockets,and much more. Provides heated storage for 1200 lbs of stick welding rods up to 18 inches in length. Maximum temperature 550F.


About the K-1000CH Floor-Positioned Welding Rod Oven – 1200 lbs. Capacity

The K-1000CH 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- 1000CH model maintains welding rods at ideal temperatures to prevent moisture pick-up and to optimize welds./p>

Shelving Design

Our 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.

Quality Insulation

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.
