About the KHT-200 Electrode Rebake Oven – 200 lbs. Capacity

The Keen KHT-200 is an electrical, high-temperature industrial oven that is designed for rebaking flux-coated, shielded metal arc welding (SMAW) electrodes. It has a 200 lb. storage capacity and a temperature range of Ambient-999°F (Ambient-537°C).

For welding electrodes that have been contaminated by moisture, the high temperature KHT-200 rebake oven is your answer. Highly efficient and easy to use, it is the perfect solution to restore up to 200 lbs of moisture-contaminated shielded metal arc welding (SMAW) electrodes.

  • UL® approved proportional integral (PI) digital controller
  • UL® approved incoloy sheath tubular heating elements

Shelving Design

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:

Quality Insulation

Efficient heating design must be supported by quality insulation. The Keen KHT-200 features features thermal mineral wool insulation. It is highly thermally-efficient and is installed within the walls and door of the unit.


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.
