NFPA 33: Standard for Spray Application Using Flammable or Combustible Materials


A. The CCAI [] has a manual on system design for around 30 bucks that can help you a lot. They also have an 800 number help line where you can get a certain amount of help.

A. Get a copy of the NFPA codes. It is not impossible to design and build and an oven. It is also easy to build a accident waiting to happen.

Propane fired oven for powder coating?


Q. Can I build a Propane heat unit for baking powder paint?

I am trying to find some info on the possible construction of a Propane bake oven for Powder paint. We need to build one around 1500 cu/ft. We have been told that Tube style Propane heaters will do the job, however I do not like to just go with the first thing I hear.

If Someone out there has ever built a Propane oven, or is running Propane for this purpose. Please help with what you may have.

Q. I was using a brick oven to cure my powder coating which were small items. Now the project is expanding and I need to build a new oven. I cannot use electricity, as that commodity is very expensive; it was suggested that I use LPG (liquid petroleum gas) so I need to build a gas fired convection oven. I have worked the size as being 8'H * 6'W * 8'D or 384 cubic feet. Now my dilemma is this: where do I put the fire box (area with the burners) at the bottom of the oven area or to the back and where do I put the ducting for the fan, top of the oven to the front/top of the oven to the back, and how wide do I make the ducting. Looks like I need more than 1 fan. Lastly what would you recommend to line the interior of the oven area, high temp paint or... (I have used 1/8" thick mild steel to make the oven area already; cannot afford stainless steel). Please help in the poor man's way as possible. I've just really started.

A. Hi, gentlemen. I strongly recommend "Powder Coating" by Roger Talbert -- a 141-page softcover published by Chemical Coaters Association International, Cincinnati ( It has a 10-page chapter about curing ovens, with sketches, as well as info about dry-off ovens. It is not a set of plans, but it is invaluable and it clearly explains the features that should be included in each type of oven and why.

You will probably also find letter 33629 "Drawings/Plans for building Powder Coating Oven" informative, as it has links to some construction photos.

Plus, you should probably see letter 13877, "Fire Protection for Powder Coating Booths, NFPA Issues".

We have several other threads on specific topics involved in the design if you are patient with the google custom search engine near the top of the page.

Good luck.
