Vitronics Soltec Features

Centurion Reflow Soldering Oven

Cathox Flux Filtration System

  • Patented Technology of flux decomposition, the revolution of the industry
  • Modular design for various solder paste usage
  • Significantly extended maintenance cycle and shortened maintenance time compared to traditional way of flux condensation
  • Avoid requirement of external devices like chillers
  • Low cost of ownership

Industry-leading Thermal Performance

With Centurion’s new design backed by our experiences with its prior generations, we achieved better thermal transfer even with wider process chamber. Our knowledge and experience in process control ensure repeatability across the ovens required by the most demanding customers and the most challenging process requirements in the world.

Cost of Ownership

With an efficient heat transfer design, Centurion provides low energy consumption. Its reliable and robust design, backed by over 20 years of SMT experience and capability, ensures high uptime even with the toughest reflow requirements. Our patented CATHOX™ further reduces cost of ownership by reducing the maintenance needs through cutting-edge technology of flux treatment. The new ‘idle mode’ option will further reduce cost of operation.

Fast Cool Down

Fast changeover time is a key factor for high-mix low volume manufacturers. Fast Cool Down (FCD) is a key option when there are multiple recipe changes in a day, especially when changing profiles from high to low temperature. Through computer program, FCD automatically controls individual zones to reach its specific temperature setpoint.

New Air Flow System

The new air flow system is designed to extract flux contaminated air out of the chamber of an air environment reflow oven. The system isolates the heating and cooling section of the tunnel with an additional venturi. It reduces refresh time and maintenance time, providing a much cleaner environment.

True N2/Air Switch

The True N2/Air switch on a nitrogen machine allows the user to easily switch between air flow system and nitrogen flow system for different productions. In Nitrogen production, nitrogen is recirculated to save the operating cost, and in Air production, the new air flow system proactively extracts air out of the chamber to the exhaust box.

This option provides the customer with the combination of a true N2 machine and a true Air machine.

Maintenance and Accessibility

The patented CATHOX™ (Catalytic Thermal Oxidizer) dramatically reduces maintenance requirements while keeping a clean process environment. It is very effective in removing volatile compounds from the process tunnel during reflow. In thermal oxidation, organic vapors are converted to hydrocarbons, which are captured by a filter. Centurion’s design also ensures that when maintenance is required, you have easy access and can do the maintenance job with few tools required.
