Default qiardano oven on cart

i have a heavy duty cart rated for 1200 pounds. i want to build a portable oven using the new giardino oven . my cart is 36 inches wide . 48 inches long. i am building an enclose out of metal . the out side of the enclosure will bolt into the out side of the cart. the giardino is 31 inches leaving me 2.5 inches in each side. if i can condense three layers of forno bravo blanket in will that be enough insulation?

This should be avoided because it is the air that is held or trapped within the insulative material that provides the bulk of the insulation.
I can't see why you can't squash your oven out of the traditional circular shape and make it a little more oval or eliptical to fit on your cart, but the weight will be a major factor to consider. The cart is rated to carry 1200 lbs but all the time and maybe more??? I would have my doubts on its life expectancy, better to build one specifically for your intended weight and ideal size.

thanks for you reply, if i extend my width and can get three inches in without compression will that be enough insulation? the oven engine is rated at 250 pounds i am not going to use refractory materials. i am going to build the housing out of stainless steel. the weight will be well under the rated 1200 pounds

A good quality superwool thermal insulation of 2" is the recommended installation or 4" vermiculite cement.
If you can prevent the compression of the insulation, then go for it!

Hey thezaman,

I know you know this -- the Giardino comes with 3 x 1" of FB Blanket on top, so you should be in good shape for heat retention and the outer enclosure staying cool.

I'm looking forward to hearing how it goes.

James

Hey thezaman,

Given the use you are going to be giving the oven, the 4" insulation on top seems like a good idea.

I don't think you you need to glue the insulation to the dome -- just hold everything in place with stucco lathe.

james, i am having a s.s cover being built for this oven .it will be like the modena. i am going to fasten the insulation with wire. i wanted to glue the first layer to give me a good base to apply the upper layers.

Take a look at everything when it arrives. The Modena blankets are not glued on. The s.s surround sounds cool -- I'm looking forward to the photos.
