Grieve Launches 500°F Walk-In Oven

Reading time ( words)

No. 813 is a gas-heated 500°F(~260°C) walk-in oven from Grieve, currently used for curing printed circuit boards. 350,000 BTU/HR is installed in a modulating natural gas burner and workspace dimensions are 48” wide x 48” deep x 72” high.

The unit has 4” insulated walls and an aluminized stainless steel interior and exterior. A 3300 CFM, 2-HP recirculating blower provides horizontal airflow to the oven. Safety equipment, such as a 325 CFM 1/3 powered force exhauster, is included as required by the IRI, FM and the National Fire Protection Association Standard 86 for gas-fired equipment. The oven also features a 2” insulated floor with truck wheel guide tracks and a removable top-mounted heat chamber.


Controls onboard No. 813 include a recirculating blower airflow safety switch, circular chart temperature controller and a manual reset excess temperature controller.

Optimizing Solder Paste Volume for Low-Temperature Reflow of BGA Packages

07/22/2019 | Keith Sweatman, Nihon Superior Co. Ltd
In this article, Keith Sweatman explains how the volume of low-melting-point alloy paste—which delivers the optimum proportion of retained ball alloy for a particular reflow temperature—can be determined by reference to the phase diagrams of the ball and paste alloys.

Failures and Reliability in Soldering

07/09/2019 | Michael Gouldsmith and Zen Lee, Thermaltronics
The definition of failure is "the lack of success in doing or achieving something, especially in relation to a particular activity." If the activity is concerning a soldering process, such a failure can have a downstream impact far beyond the actual solder joint. In this regard, it is first necessary to understand what constitutes a good solder joint because appearance is too often deemed a success.

Low-Temperature SMT Solder Evaluation

07/05/2019 | H. Osgood, D. Geiger, R. Pennings, C. Biederman, J. Jiang, and J. Bernal, Flex Inc.
Until recently, the use of Sn/Bi-based SMT solder materials has been investigated with negative consequences for high strain rate (drop-shock) applications; thus, these alloys have been avoided. Recent advances in alloy 'doping' have opened the door to revisit Sn/Bi alloys as a possible alternative to SAC-305 for many applications.
