Commercial Warming Oven Conversion

Post by Hotstuff » December 14th, 2017, 2:50 pm

Here is my commercial warming oven conversion it measures inside 62”hight x 24” deep x 22” wise it is stainless steel inside and out what I need th know is smoke stack length and diameter and vent which it has an 4” wide x 12 length vent with a damper door the fire box fits in the bottom of the box it measures 18” wide x 20” length with 3” high sides. I have a metal plate about 17” x wide x 20” length with an 8” hole in the center and 6” above the coals I have cut An 4” pipe in the top with a baffle. I used the sizing calculator but I think I put something in wrong. Finally I have a 6” metal fan at the top to force the heat back down 800 rpm.
1. Is this correct for sizing?
2. What length of stack do I need?
3. Do I need more stacks?
4. Also the door is a tight sealed door?

Should be an interesting build to watch this one...

On verticals the CC acts as a stack and all that's needed is an exhaust . The door should be gasketed.

The calculator is are not for vertical CC, that is probably why things weren't coming out right. Verticals don't loose any heat from the fuel burning so they can burn much less of a fire. Are you going to channel the airflow or allow it to go straight up? I say that really just to get you thinking in terms of getting the higher racks close to the same temp as the lower ones. I would put a very heavy baffle/drip pan above the FB opening forcing the air to the side behind the rack sliders providing the aren't mounted to the walls.
