convection batch ovens | 2 December, 1998

Hi, I'm looking for a small batch convection oven that will replace the dryer section of a batch ultrasonic cleaning machine to dry off excessive water from washed PCB's, any suggestions for particular suppliers, will be appreciated. Jack

Quad offers an low end bench top oven that may do the trick. | 2 December, 1998

Quad still sells a low end convection/IR bench top oven for about $15,000. (ZCR 412B) It is limited to a 12" board but may work for your application.

IR ovens have gone out of favor recently. There should be some older IR ovens for under $5,000 from many vendors through the brokers.

I've got several suggestions for you:

1 Buy a drying oven from a used equipment supplier, such as: LR Environmental 12902 S.Spring St Los Angeles CA 90061 800.574.2748 213.770.0634 fax0105 sales@lre.com www.lre.com John Kline. Other used equipment suppliers can be found in the SMTnet archives. 2 Use an air knife ... you could run the wet boards under the air knife. But the boards in a "box" with an air knife ... Two companies that make nifty assemblies are: Paxton Products 805.987.5555 fax389.1154 www.airknife.com Sonic Air Systems 4111 NPalm St Fullerton CA 92835 714.870.2700 fax 0100 800.827.6642 www.sonicairsystems.com 3 Buy an old Vitronics (or who ever) IR reflow oven from a used equipment supplier. See 1 above.

We have a Heller 942 that is completely operational but not being used; we would be happy to entertain any offers if this did, in fact, meet your requirements. | Hi, | I'm looking for a small batch convection oven that will replace the dryer section of a batch ultrasonic cleaning machine to dry off excessive water from washed PCB's, | any suggestions for particular suppliers, will be appreciated. | Jack |

Oven vs. Dryer | 6 December, 1998

There are significant differences in a properly designed dryer vs. an Oven. Ovens mearly bake the moisture from assemblies. The high humidity of a drying environment was not considered when most reflow ovens were designed. Dryers are designed with lots of forced air to put the moisture into suspension. A seperate chiller condensor will cause the air to be seperated from the moisture and enhance drying time and efficiency immensely. A dryer is a vertical unit, highly insulated and loaded with wire racks. It is designed to operate at drying temperatures which are much lower than oven temps. They are also reletively inexpensive. I have a good contact that can help you find what you are after. Email me if you would like a telephone number. I can help you.
