Industrial Heating: Ovens vs. Furnaces

By January 23, 2015November 2nd, 2021Industrial Heating

At Delta H, we offer two types of industrial heating systems: ovens and furnaces. The average person is probably unaware of the difference between the two so we’ll explain it for you. The difference is actually pretty simple. Any industrial heat treating system that heats above 1000 degrees Fahrenheit is considered a furnace and anything below is an oven.

We sell two types of industrial ovens and two types of industrial furnaces.

Industrial Ovens

Walk-in Ovens

These ovens are designed for a wide variety of industrial thermal processing applications. One of the benefits of our walk-in industrial ovens is that you can build your own and save thousands on shipping and construction.


Cabinet Ovens

These systems are designed for service in applications such as drying, composite curing, powder coating and paint baking, heat treating, annealing, and more. Our cabinet ovens achieve temperature uniformity of +/-3 degrees and heat up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.

Industrial Furnaces


Versatile Tool Room Furnace

This industrial heating system gives you the ability to perform a variety of metal heat treating or material processing applications. The chamber can reach temperatures of 2250 degrees Fahrenheit (much higher than the ovens) with aerospace versions available.
