BTU International to Debut TRITAN™ HV90 Metallization Firing System at PV Taiwan 2011

Sep 28, 2011

BTU International (Nasdaq: BTUI), a leading supplier of advanced thermal processing equipment for the alternative energy and electronics manufacturing markets, introduces the TRITAN™ HV90 metallization firing system for silicon photovoltaics.

The TRITAN HV90 dual-lane metallization firing system features increased throughput at 3600 wafers per hour, an edge belt, volatile organic compound (VOC) abatement and a single zone spike with less than 3 seconds spike time.

“The HV90 is a dual-lane firing furnace that is optimized for volume production,” said Bob Bouchard, product marketing manager for metallization products at BTU.  “Dual-lane processing is a tremendous leap forward in the race to lower cost per watt.  Customers switching to dual-lane can expect a 35 percent increase in capital efficiency and with the TRITAN HV90’s unparalleled performance in lane to lane matching, there is really no reason to wait,” added Bouchard.

The TRITAN metallization firing system features BTU’s unique TriSpeed™ technology, allowing  users to take advantage of superior ramp rates - up to 200ºC per second - while not compromising the drying and cooling sections of the profile. The three-belt, three-speed system provides revolutionary control of profile development. In trials, TRITAN has consistently shown an improvement in fill factor resulting in increased efficiency. This, combined with TRITAN’s low cost of ownership, enables customers to achieve the lowest cost per watt.


BTU International is a market-leading, global supplier of advanced thermal processing equipment and processes to the alternative energy and electronics manufacturing markets. BTU equipment is used in solar cell, nuclear fuel and fuel cell manufacturing as well as in the production of printed circuit board assemblies and semiconductor packaging. BTU has operations in North Billerica, Massachusetts and Shanghai, China, with direct sales and service in the USA, Asia and Europe.
