Vapor Phase One
The Vapor Phase One offers development engineers as well as small to medium sized prototyping service providers one of the most gentle soldering processes in the industry. In contrast to infrared or convection processes, assemblies with high thermal mass, fine pitch structures or temperature-sensitive components can be processed without any problems.
Fast temperature profiles
The design of Vapor Phase One allows the user to run fast temperature profiles using a height-adjustable PCB lift.
Custom soldering profiles
The Vapor Phase One can import individual soldering profiles via an SD card. Based on these profiles, heating power and lift position are adapted to different solder pastes and PCB technologies.
This feature shortens the process time and ensures minimal loss of Galden® when the board is removed
With the vapor phase technology, the soldered assembly is generally covered with Galden® residues. Our assembly is kept at a temperature of 120 °C after the soldering process, thus leaving hardly any residues.
The lid to the process chamber lifts automatically to simplify the insertion and removal of PCBs. This also helps to preserve the heat transfer medium.
In addition to a screen that displays real-time temperature data, the Vapor Phase One features a viewing window with internal lighting that allows you to see into the process chamber.
The Vapor Phase One has a variety of safety mechanisms implemented in both software and hardware to ensure a secure usage and soldering process.

The Vapor Phase One is sold directly by PCB Arts, except to the countries below. There we have good partners who take over the distribution:
- PrintTec (for Belgium, Luxembourg and The Netherlands)
- TivTec (for Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, North Macedonia and Montenegro)
Mouser Electronics (for North America)
To get started directly with the Vapor Phase One, at least 1kg of Galden is required. Just add Galden LS230 to the shopping cart and we will ship everything together.
