IN-LINE THERMAL PROCESSING FOR HIGH PRODUCTIVITY
BTU’s family of precision controlled, high temperature belt furnaces surpass even the most challenging requirements of high-volume thermal processing.
Capable of delivering astounding control of atmosphere, down to 2ppm O2 in the process zones. This, combined with cross-belt uniformity exceeding +/-2˚C, delivers amazing throughput and cycle time, without process yield loss over batch processes.
BTU’s continuous furnaces are known worldwide for their superior thermal and atmosphere performance and have been shown to increase output by 4X over traditional battery material processing techniques as an example. In addition, BTU has proprietary technology that can reduce the footprint and cycle time for long processes by up to 67%.
BTU’s controlled atmosphere furnaces are available with temperature ranges up to 1800°C and with various process atmospheres including hydrogen, nitrogen and argon. Excellent atmosphere purity is achieved through the use of BTU’s patented gas barrier technology. In addition, BTU’s unique educator technology can be used to enhance cooling or control process atmosphere. The end result is superior efficiency, superior performance, and superior thermal uniformity for a number of advanced thermal processes.
These include applications such as Brazing, Glass-to-Metal Sealing, LTCC, Direct Copper bonding, Thick Film, Sintering, Diffusion, Advanced Ceramics, Solar Cell, Powder Processing, Curing, Drying, Calcination, Curing and Electrode Drying.
