RA and RF Cabinet Ovens

The RA/RF cabinet oven features horizontal recirculating airflow and exceptional temperature uniformity. The result is proven reliability in demanding production and laboratory applications, such as curing, drying, sterilizing, aging, ASTM testing, UL testing and other process-critical applications. The high-performance oven delivers temperatures up to 343ºC (650ºF) and four models from 4.2 to 35 cu ft (117 to 991 liters) to meet your needs.

The RF Class A cabinet oven is specifically designed to meet NFPA 86 requirements for applications that include flammable solvents or large amounts of moisture removal. These Class A ovens are complete with a pressure relief panel, purge timer, and exhaust fan. The RFD1-42 Class A Benchtop Oven is a popular oven due to it’s size and capabilities. With its benchtop design and small footprint, it is ideal for small and R&D Class A applications.

Despatch also offers an RAF/RFF high temperature model. This oven features temperatures of up to 538°C (1000°F). See RAF/RFF High Temperature brochure for complete information.

Despatch provides the design integrity, manufacturing experience and emphasis on quality necessary for dependable operation and excellent process control.

Horizontal Airflow for Ultimate Temperature Uniformity

RA/RF cabinet oven use horizontal recirculating airflow to ensure uniform temperatures throughout the oven. A high-volume fan circulates air through perforated, stainless steel walls to create a constant horizontal airflow across all sections of the oven.

New Controls are Easy to Use

Protocol 3™ is easy to use for both simple and complex applications. Temperatures are displayed in either Fahrenheit or Celsius on a large, bright LCD display. Six indicator lights provide an at-a-glance review of the oven’s operating status. The easy to read LCD display also provides detailed information on oven status with clear real-text messages and simplifies programming of temperature and time parameters with user-friendly menus.


Both controls and chamber are located at heights that reduce bending or standing on ladders. The controls are side mounted at an easy access height.

Easy to Service

Electrical and mechanical components are easily accessible for fast and easy service. Virtually all service work can be performed from the front of the oven.

Superior Quality

The Despatch RA/RF cabinet oven features a sturdy, welded, double- wall construction, six inches of glass fiber insulation (four inches on the bench-top model), and heavy-duty high temperature gaskets. Each oven receives a thorough quality and performance test before it is shipped. Solid state relays produce precise temperature control for consistent high process results.
