BTU International, Inc., a leading supplier of advanced thermal processing equipment for the electronics manufacturing market, will exhibit at the 2020 IPC APEX EXPO, scheduled to take place Feb. 4-6, 2020, at the San Diego Convention Center in California. The team will showcase both the PYRAMAX™ Vacuum reflow oven and the AQUA SCRUB flux management in Booth #3119.
The PYRAMAX Vacuum reflow oven has been designed around requirements of large EMS/high-volume automotive customers. The unit is configured with 10 zones of closed-loop convection heating and a maximum production width of 18". Nitrogen atmosphere capable, the PYRAMAX Vacuum reflow oven offers a maximum process temperature of 350 °C. In addition to full Industry 4.0 compliance, the vacuum reflow unit features automatic sequencing, programmable control of vacuum level and hold time and pass-through mode for non-vacuum operation.
The AQUA SCRUB flux management technology uses an aqueous-based rinse agent for most effective removal of flux from the oven’s process gas. This system achieves truly hands-off maintenance by sequestering the flux waste into a removable jug. The AQUA SCRUB boasts a 4X reduction in Cost of Ownership and is field retrofit ready on PYRAMAX reflow ovens.
