A patented vertical oven emitting a special distribution of IR wavelengths under 1.6 microns crosslinks PE pipe in record time of about 6 sec vs. 2 to 5 min for typical curing in hot liquid. The oven was developed by Crosslink Finland Oy in Tampere, Finland, and licensed recently to Inoex in Germany for marketing worldwide (U.S. offices in Lancaster, Pa.). Crosslink Finland has delivered 13 commercial installations over the past six years. The system can be retrofitted onto existing lines. Inoex: (717) 672-0870 . www.inoex.com
