This processing chamber responds to a growing trend in
the medical and biotechnology industries: more and more
temperature-sensitive microelectronic devices are being
introduced into the human body, where reliable operation
at above-ambient temperatures is a matter of life or death.
By providing a precisely regulated, uniform, traceable processing
temperature from ambient to 140°F (62°C), this chamber simulates
the working environment of microcircuits or biological samples
during processing and testing operations.
Clean, Convenient and Efficient
Its low-profile, EMI-shielded impeller blower circulates air
through the heat exchanger. A time proportional controller
with RTD probe allows adjustment of the set-point up to 140°F
(62°C); its LED readout displays set-point and process
temperatures in either Fahrenheit or Celsius, and an RS-232C
interface allows remote monitoring and control by means of
The polycarbonate chamber combines complete visibility with
protection against thermal stress. The hinged front door includes
strips that allow insertion of an operator's hands with minimal
heat loss. Top and bottom stainless steel diffusing shields
feature perforations of differing sizes that ensure uniform
circulation of air throughout the chamber; a micro-screen positioned
above the lower diffuser prevents small parts from falling into
the plenum area. A 3-inch (76 mm) stainless steel utility shelf is mounted
on the rear wall of the chamber, and a sliding door on the left
side accommodates any electrical service lines that may be required
by processing equipment used inside the chamber.
