Frequently Asked questions:


Why should I choose a brickoven made in refractory firebricks?

An oven completely handmade in firebricks has a lot of upsides: in terms of performance and lifespan. Refractory bricks are cooked in furnaces at temperatures ranging from 1.200 to 1.400°C and heavily pressed in the production process. Compared to refractory cement this process hardens the material and avoids any air bubble to form inside the material structure. Having a more dense structure a thick brick can hold heat for a longer time but on top of that, it can release it gradually avoiding positive or negative peaks.
Unlike cement in fact, a brick structure will retain and return heat in steady way over the time, avoiding operator to adjust his baking style to heat variations. The hardness of the material therefore grants a longer life to the oven, avoiding cracks and scratches caused by wood or peel handling.


Is smoke exhaust mandatory for a Ceky Oven?

Being B type machineries, all our ovens need a smoke exhaust to work and to be installed in a restaurant. For all our professional ovens minimum suggested diameter for the stack is 20cm int. diameter. In most of the models the stack exhaust is positioned in the front of the oven, just above the frontal opening. Only in Granvolta family, the stack is in the middle of the central dome.


What is the minimum size for the exhaust pipe?

The minimum suggested size for the exhaust pipe is 20cm (internal diameter)


My exhaust pipe is smaller than 20cm, can I install a Ceky oven?

We always suggest to use an exhaust pipe as similar as possible to the suggested one, to avoid blowing problems. Providing a correct m3/h or CFM blowing force, it is possible to install a Ceky oven even with smaller sized pipes.


I have a wood burning oven. Can I turn it to a gas burning?

Yes, installing our Ceky gas burner you can have your wood working oven work with any type of gas. Some limitations may apply, so it is better to contact us through our form to have more information.


Can I add wood to a gas burning oven?

Yes, our gas oven can work with both gas and wood. Wood must always be placed in the opposite position to the gas burner, to avoid possible problems caused by ashes on the burner pipe. It is never necessary to use both fuels as the gas burner is powerful enough to maintain the correct working temperature. Mixed burning has mainly an aesthetic function or in case of gas supply problems. In case a gas supply shortage in fact you can still work with wood avoiding production stop.
