Oven for zero impact solution

Electric Oven

Electric ovens are used to bake all kinds of products and are constructed in a similar way to direct gas fired ovens with the key difference being the use of electric elements as the heating source. Tubular electric heaters are used instead of direct gas burners. 

Electric ovens provide a clean baking solution and are often specified in countries where alternative fuels are not available or are in short supply.

When baking using an electric oven, the only discharge to the atmosphere are those particulates which are released from the product during the baking process. For this reason, electric ovens are commonly referred to as a “zero impact solution” and are ideally placed to meet low emission requirements.

We design, configure and install electrically heated tunnel ovens for different types of products, with working widths of up to 1200 mm. Our modular design allows us to customize the heating system and the zone length for each zone to meet customer requirements.

Energy efficiency

GEA tunnel ovens are built with insulating material which uses high-density rock wool. This ensures that minimal heat is lost through the oven walls and the exterior of the ovens stays cool. An automatically controlled extraction damper helps to save energy and reduces emissions to the atmosphere. Optional heat recovery systems minimize energy consumption and thereby improve environmental sustainability.

Oven control and automation

All our ovens are designed to offer consistent temperature control, through the action of thermoregulators in each oven zone. These allow for independent heat distribution at the top and bottom of the oven and across each zone, finely controlling also pressure and moisture inside them to ensure that every product is perfectly baked.


The thermoregulation system is linked to a PLC that oversees safety, start-up and shutdown procedures. Recipe storage capabilities mean that it is easy for the operator to switch between products using the touch screen display. All working parameters for each product can be viewed and changed when required. GEA ovens even offer the option for remote in-line assistance and troubleshooting by our specialist engineers.
