Blue M® Ships Mechanical Convection Oven to the Semiconductor Industry

Posted: Mar 21, 2024

Blue M®, a global industrial and laboratory ovens manufacturer, announced the shipment of a mechanical convection oven to a semiconductor manufacturer.

This Blue M oven has a temperature range of 15°C above ambient to 350°C and chamber dimensions of 25" W x 20" D x 20" H. An NIST certificate of calibration at the setpoint of 300°C was provided with the unit. The interior cabinet is constructed with 304 stainless steel and includes two (2) 304 stainless steel slotted shelves, which provide excellent resistance to high-temperature operation.

The oven is designed for flexibility, featuring a floor stand with swivel casters for easy relocation within the customer's facility. The oven has been upgraded with several safety options. An electro-mechanical lock protects the product load from being damaged by accidental disruption, and a safety door switch automatically shuts off the oven blower system and heating elements when the door is opened. An emergency power-off button allows the operator to easily shut off the equipment in the event of an emergency and an airflow switch shuts off the heating elements in case of a blower system failure.

A Yokogawa programmable controller provides precise temperature control for the unit. The controller utilizes a large, easy-to-read color display and allows up to 30 program patterns for 300 linkable segments. It also includes 8 process variable events, 16 time events, and ladder sequencing.

 “This Blue M mechanical convection oven is designed with a special 13” high floor stand. The stand includes swivel casters for moving the unit as needed and leveling pads to lift the wheels off the ground to hold the oven in place.”

– Jonathan Young, Blue M Product Manager
