Food Processing Ovens

Our line of food processing ovens give you what no other oven on the market can: ultimate control over the oven breakpoint. Total Flow Control™, our patented airflow system, allows you to set the location and duration of the breakpoint airflow, which eliminates cold spots in the oven, resulting in more consistent product cooking and coloring, and up to a 10% increase in product yields over other manufacturer’s ovens.

Consistent product yields, texture, and color are possible in a Fusion Tech oven.

Choose the oven for you

We offer four styles of ovens — smokehouses, protein dehydrators, non-protein dehydrators, steam ovens — to fit the needs of your specific product.

Increased Product Yields

Customers report up to a 10% increase in product yields over other manufacturers’ ovens.

Increased Product Consistency

Product cooks evenly throughout your truck, giving you greater consistency.

Better Product Color

Consistent cooking reduces the wide range of product coloring found in most ovens, and gives you a better product color.

Breakpoint Control

Total Flow Control ™ lets you set the breakpoint location and duration to one of multiple zones.

Eliminate Hot & Cold Spots

Direct the breakpoint airflow to eliminate spots that over cook on your truck.

Two Ovens in One

Vertical & horizontal airflow can be created in a single oven.

Controlling the Oven Breakpoint

Fusion Tech ovens stand alone in their ability to control the breakpoint. With our patented Total Flow Control™ system, you are able to direct the airflow to one of the multiple zones in the oven — and keep it there for a specified amount of time.

This individualized control over the oven breakpoint eliminates hot and cold spots on your truck and provides for a more consistent, even cooking of your product. Customers have reported up to a 10% increase in product yields and a marked increase in product color consistency using our airflow technology.

It’s like getting two ovens in one. The airflow technology in a Fusion Tech oven allows you to maintain horizontal airflow, vertical airflow, or anything in between. Whether you have hung product or screened product, you can set the airflow to ensure every piece of your product receives the exact same amount of airflow.

Everything about a Fusion Tech oven is designed to optimize the formation and movement of the breakpoint.

Total Flow Control®

Total Flow Control® is a patented control package the enables users to control the oven’s break point at any location within the oven — making Fusion Tech Ovens truly all about the airflow. The oven is graphically broken down into multiple quadrants, which gives you control over every square inch of your oven. Users can eliminate cold spots (areas of the rack that are not cooking consistently) by simply adjusting the graphical interface on the touch screen, directing airflow to any specific quadrant for any given amount of time.

The result: every piece of product, whether hung on sticks or laid on screens, receives the same duration of airflow, making yields, product texture, and product color consistent.

Control Panels

Fusion Tech Ovens come with two controller options. You can learn more about our controllers to the right.

Already trusted by these amazing companies

We purchased two, two truck ovens in mid 2017. We have been very pleased! We also have a 4 truck oven being built for us currently with a September 2018 Delivery Date. The air flow technology allows us to cover all hot spots and cold spots accordingly. Cooking times decreased by an average of 15%-20%. This is outstanding with sausage and Beef Jerky. Our yields have increased by approximately 10%. This equals more profits! We are very pleased with the service and support team of Fusion Tech.

The Fusion Tech oven reduced our cook time by 3.5 hours, improved color and consistency throughout our product, and increased our product yields. The staff is amazing — they even accepted calls from my smokehouse operators day or night to make sure everything was running correctly and answer any questions.

I’ve been in the meat industry for 33 years and have used all kinds of equipment, but now I’m a Fusion Tech customer for life. I have used Enviro-Pak horizontal smokehouses, Alkar smokehouses, as well as others, and nothing compares to Fusion Tech Smokehouses. I have an older 2-Truck Alkar smokehouse that was retrofitted with the Fusion Tech Total-Flow-Control (TFC) airflow system. With the TFC system, now I can use that smokehouse for all of my jerky products. The TFC allows me to concentrate the airflow virtually anywhere I want in the oven, so it allows me to put more capacity on a rack and still maintain excellent consistency. I basically get two smokehouses in one with the Fusion Tech smokehouse, a horizontal and a vertical smokehouse. The Fusion Tech oven gives me better consistency and 20% more capacity per rack.
