Ovens and furnaces
ENTR Lot 4 covers a wide range of laboratory and industrial equipment, including products such as (not exhaustive):
- Furnaces: blast furnaces, reverberatory furnaces, smelting furnaces, muffle furnaces, heat treatment furnaces, rotary furnaces, vacuum furnaces, belt furnaces with conveyors, cement kilns, incinerators
- Ovens: sterilizers, incubators, drying cabinets, reflow ovens, biscuit ovens, clean room ovens, thermal cycling ovens
The study aims at analysing whether and which ecodesign requirements should be set for these products.
The study was launched beginning of 2010 and completed in August 2012.
