|Publication Date:||10 July 1997|
|ICS Code (Cooking ranges, working tables, ovens and similar appliances):||97.040.20|
This test method covers an evaluation of the energy consumption and cooking performance of conveyor ovens. The food service operator can use this evaluation to select a conveyor oven and understand its energy consumption.
This test method is applicable to gas and electric conveyor ovens.
The conveyor oven can be evaluated with respect to the following (where applicable):
Energy input rate and thermostat calibration (see 10.2),
Preheat energy consumption and time (see 10.3),
Idle energy rate (see 10.4),
Pilot energy rate (if applicable) (see 10.5), and
Cooking energy efficiency and production capacity (see 10.6).
The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
