Thermal Uniformity

Near Perfect High Thermal Uniformity

Preheat Benefits
Use on medium to high mass assemblies that can heat
sink significant amounts of energy from a hand tool or solder
pot rework.
Minimizes the process temperature. Ideal for lead-free
applications where the high melt alloy requires a high
process temperature.
Minimizes risk of thermal damage. Ideal for fine pitch
assemblies where pad damage is most prevalent.
Activates flux. Ensures volatile and water removal.
For reflow rework,
reduces thermal gradient,
therefore,
minimizing localized pcb warpage.

Establishes a uniform starting process
condition for
enhanced process control.

 

Enhance Your Rework Procedures
The PHS Preheater is the ideal accessory for circuit
board repair and assembly
and will easily integrate into
any existing workstation.
The infrared preheater provides ample, uniform heat to
accommodate both tin-lead and lead-free applications.
An audible alarm indicates when the desired temperature
has been reached.
The compact design features a sturdy board carrier and
cushioned armrest to provide a safe and comfortable
platform for operators.

Eliminates operator handling of preheated assembly.
