Lindberg/MPH ships electric mesh belt conveyor furnace


Lindberg/MPH announced the shipment of one continuous mesh belt conveyor furnace to the computer market.

This conveyor furnace is configured for soldering process applications and provides a heating and cooling process environment under a nitrogen/hydrogen blended atmosphere.

The electrically heated mesh belt conveyor furnace features a 6-inch wide belt and 6-foot long chamber. The parts will be continuously loaded onto the belt, heated to the customer’s specified temperature (maximum of 1,000°C), and then cooled while under a nitrogen/hydrogen protective atmosphere prior to exiting the conveyor. This process atmosphere environment allows parts to be thermally processed and remain clean.

The mesh belt conveyor furnace features an alloy belt capable of withstanding process temperatures along with a full alloy muffle welded gas tight and pressure tested. The integrated control panel includes an advanced process controller that controls zone temperature, belt speed, atmosphere, and historical data. Each heating zone is individually controlled providing specific temperature gradients.

“This conveyor furnace utilizes a nitrogen/hydrogen atmosphere in the cooling section to ensure that the parts being processed remain clean,” said Bill St. Thomas, business development manager.

Features of this continuous mesh belt conveyor furnace include:

  • Full alloy muffle is welded gas tight and pressure tested.
  • Inert gas purge chambers at entrance and exit.
  • Water cooled cooling section.
  • Advanced process controller with touch screen.
  • Multiple individually controlled heating zones.
  • Belt speed sensing and belt jam alarm.
  • Atmosphere burn off.
