Blue M Ships Batch Oven to the Semiconductor Industry
Blue M, a global manufacturer of industrial and laboratory ovens, announced the shipment of a customized batch oven to the semiconductor industry.
This batch oven has a temperature range of 15°C above ambient to 316°C and interior chamber dimensions of 36" W x 36" D x 48" H. The interior chamber liner is fully welded to keep contaminants out of the chamber.
This unit is customized with a pneumatic vertical lift door option that can be automated and paired with robotic systems. This optional feature allows for ease of loading and unloading of the customer’s product. The vertical lift door also minimizes the floor space required in front of the oven compared to a standard outward swinging door. Another custom feature of this Blue M batch oven is a nitrogen purge system. The system will be used for purging clean dry nitrogen into the workspace to minimize the buildup of moisture during the heating process.
The oven temperature is controlled by a Watlow F4T controller with an easy-to-use color touch panel and provides Ethernet connectivity along with data logging and graphical trend charting capabilities. This batch oven is designed with horizontal airflow and an airflow switch to shut off the heating elements in the event of a blower system failure. Four (4) stainless steel slotted shelves were included in lieu of the solid trays to optimize airflow distribution around the product.
“Blue M batch ovens are customizable with optional features to better meet customer requirements. This batch oven is engineered to order with a pneumatic vertical lift door for ease of loading and unloading of product.”
