Gas consumption vs oven temperature setting point

  1. May 27, 2015 #1
    Haw can I calculate/estimate the potential gas consumption in an industrial oven after the reduction of the temperature setting point?

    I don't think you gave enough information. By how much do you reduce the temp? If I have a gas oven that is at 400 degrees and I lower the oven temperature setting to room temperature I can guarantee that you will reduce your gas consumption to zero? If the oven had very good insulation then the temperature would drop very slowly.
