Testing Lab

Our priority is to ensure your success by processing your parts in our testing lab. We customize our testing process based upon your goals and the parameters for your unique application.  Based on information you provide, we will select the test oven for your best results.  In addition, we will work to meet your objectives through rigorous testing of your parts in one of our numerous test ovens.

Information Requirements for the design and setup or your testing process:

  • Your company’s specific goals or objectives that you wish to accomplish, such as: curing powder, drying paint or other liquids, forming plastic or heating material to specified temperatures, moisture dry-off, preheating, other drying or curing applications.
  • Maximum dimensions of the part to be tested
  • Detailed Power requirements for your facility where any future oven would be in use.  Fuel type needed – electric, gas or LP

Physical Requirements for testing:

  • Seven to ten parts for multiple tests to determine the appropriate process.  Testing of smaller sizes is easier in our test ovens.  Specifically, maximum part size is 42” W by 42” H.
  • A minimum of 3 lbs. of powder coating or 1 gallon of liquid paint for finishing testing
  • Paint, powder, plastic or other material for testing together with all TDS and MSDS sheets  (The MSDS sheet is a National Fire Protection Association requirement and we cannot test without it per NFPA.)
  • Up to three days of complimentary testing is offered

Testing cannot begin until all of these requirements have been met.

Other than providing information and testing materials listed above, there is no charge for testing for up to three days.  Scheduling does need to be confirmed in advance for all visits to our testing lab.


Once testing is complete, we will share notes, observations, and suggestions along with DataPaq charts in a PDF format showing the results, times, temperatures, emitter type and configuration of the oven data compiled during testing.

Also, you will be provided with pictures/digital images taken during the testing process.  Please feel free to reach out to our director of testing, Greg DeWitt, with any questions about your specific needs.  Contact Greg via e-mail or phone 812.663.3213.
