Barnstead International of Dubuque, Iowa, is marketing Pyro-Clean ovens, which use very high heat instead of solvents to clean plastic from breaker plates and other metal tooling.
The oven chamber is purged to remove air. The temperature is raised to about 900° F, leaving only carbonized residue on the parts. The residue is removed by introducing air into the chamber, quickly oxidizing the carbon.
