GT Solar International Inc., a provider of specialized production equipment, process technology and turnkey manufacturing services for the solar power industry, has introduced the DSS450HP, a new ingot growth furnace.
The furnace features a thermally optimized, second-generation hot zone for improved throughput, while delivering high crystal quality, the company says. The DSS450HP delivers faster ingot growth rates, resulting in 15% more system throughput and reduced energy consumption compared to the DSS450 furnace.
New DSS450HP systems begin shipping this month and are expected to be installed at customer sites beginning in May. Current DSS450 and DSS240 users can migrate to the new DSS450HP with a field upgrade kit.
