New Product: Metallization Furnace for Solar

BTU International introduced the TRITAN Metallization Furnace at the 24th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference. The furnace features a multi-belt/dual speed conveyor, dual lane capability, wavelength optimization technology and full chamber access. 

BTU International introduced the TRITAN Metallization Furnace at the 24th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference. The furnace features a multi-belt/dual speed conveyor, dual lane capability, wavelength optimization technology and full chamber access. It is designed for maximum thermal performance, uptime and throughput at reduced cost of ownership.
 
The furnace is designed for faster process speeds in combination with innovative heating and gas delivery technology. With optimized wavelengths, wafers can be heated at a very steep temperature gradient. However, the higher belt speed, driven by spike heating, does not result in a longer furnace; the proprietary multi-drive system allows the drying and cooling sections to run at a reduced speed, keeping the same footprint and reducing operating costs. The process chamber is designed to provide access from both top and bottom of the conveyor—the first of its kind in firing furnaces—for easy maintenance and serviceability. Full chamber access, combined with extended lamp life, minimizes downtime. In addition, the drying section features a stainless steel lining for easy cleaning. 
 
BTU offers solar processing equipment for both silicon and thin film photovoltaics. In thin film photovoltaics, BTU’s equipment is used for both the CIGS and CdTe processes. Silicon photovoltaic applications are served by BTU’s metallization furnaces and in-line diffusion systems.
