Assemblies up to 60mm high can be soldered in the Vapor Phase One.
Which Galden is recommended?
For now we can recommend the LS230 Galden, other Galden Support will be implemented in new software releases.
Can the machine overheat?
Even in clocked operation, the Vapor Phase One should not overheat. The internal radiators are designed for this. However, if the cooling water should get too hot, the Vapor Phase soldering system needs a few minutes of cooling time.
Is it normal to see the galden vapor coming out of the machine?
The Vapor Phase One is very economical in terms of galden consumption. However, it may happen that a slight escape of galden vapor can be observed. This is due to the increased overpressure within the process chamber.
How well can the vapor phase soldering system handle high thermal masses?
Due to the fact that a vapor phase is built up within the process chamber, which contains a high thermal energy, even higher thermal masses are no problem for the Vapor Phase One.
How is the Vapor Phase One shipped?
This will be shipped normally as a large package.
How safe is the Vapor Phase One?
We have implemented a great many security mechanisms. The mechanism for opening the process chamber is equipped with various sensors to eliminate the risk of crushing.
