_MG_1491Koch Insulated Oven Panels outperform competitive systems as a result of our unique energy saving “ISO Slot” design. Side channels feature multiple staggered 3/16″ wide x 6″ thermal break slot perforations instead of fewer 3/4″ wide slots. Our proprietary superior thermal break design exhibits an average 15˚ lower oven temperature and associated energy savings compared to generic panels with fewer 3/4″ wide slots.

Typical temperatures are summarized below from an oven constructed of 6″ thick Koch insulated oven panels featuring 20-gauge aluminized steel skins and 4# density mineral wool insulation located in a 71˚F, 32% RH facility:

Temperatures @ 400˚F
Avg. Temp. @ Panel Joint: 93.67˚F
Avg. Temp. @ Ctr. of Panel: 84.67˚F

Temperatures @ 500˚F
Avg. Temp. @ Panel Joint: 115.11˚F
Avg. Temp. @ Ctr. of Panel: 102.83˚F

Temperatures @ 550˚F
Avg. Temp. @ Panel Joint: 128.67˚F
Avg. Temp. @ Ctr. of Panel: 115.17˚F

Insulation

Koch Insulated Oven Panels feature THERMAFIBER® INDUSTRIAL FELT with certification on density based on full compliance with Sec. 11.2 of ASTM C612. Mineral wool “Felt” is superior to mineral wool “board” insulation which simply features nominal densities. It is rated noncombustible, as defined by NFPA Standard 220 when tested in accordance with ASTM E136. Melting point exceeds 2,000 OF, and the product withstands ASTM E119 temperature for over 5 hours when mechanically supported.
