The LB 18 is a side-element only design that allows the heat treater to use the entire depth of the chamber, regardless of blade length. This makes the LB 18 long blade friendly. If you currently heat treat long blades, or intend to at some point, the LB Series is made just for you. You can take advantage of the entire depth of the LB 18 and expect excellent temperature distribution all the way to the back wall.
LB 18 is 18" deep and is standard equipped with full feature controls such as the TAP touchscreen. The TAP touchscreen control is, without a doubt, the easiest and best designed control available. Its performance and features are as stellar as its layout. It handles everything very well.
LB Series ovens are also standard equipped with a solid state relay. Solid state relays can be triggered up to 60 times a second compared to a mechanical relay that is limited to about once every 10 seconds which translates into very tight and responsive temperature control. As an added benefit, we expect that the solid state relay will never wear out or need replacing!
Evenheat is constantly developing and testing new designs to increase the performance and value of our heat treat ovens. The LB Series represents the culmination of that effort.
