Despatch Industries, a technology and equipment provider for PV manufacturers, says it has recently completed rigorous testing on advancements to its CF Series firing furnace platform.
The most notable advancements are to the product's maximum belt speed and heating and cooling rates. Belt speed, a variable that can be instrumental in shaping thermal profiles, has been increased up to 300 inches per minute, while maintaining accuracy, stability and uniformity, the company says.
Significant advancements in thermal transfer methods, particularly cooling, allows for increased maximum ramp rates. The CF Series is now capable of maximum ramp rates up to 200 degrees C for heating and cooling.Â Â
