The Industrial Grade Bench Top PCB Panel Board Dyer machine is an invaluable machine designed for the thorough drying of wet circuit boards or chemically milled etched parts after they have being wet processed. With the chassis constructed from 316L stainless steel the Horizontal PCB Panel Dryer machine features some unique technology to remove capillary water trapped in the holes of circuit boards, which can often cause PCB fabricators problems, for example when applying Dry Film to the printed circuit board Panels after Drilling or Through hole plating (PTH). This Horizontal panel dryer machine is also popularly and commonly used alongside conveyorised spray processing Etching machines when stripping, developing or etching for the rapid drying of wet processed chemically milled parts and sheets.
The Printed circuit boards are processed through a series of squeegee towelling rollers and a heated air knife to fully dry them. The drive mechanism is designed for a continuous heavy duty cycle featuring a steel sprocket chain drive. All rollers have a core constructed from Aluminium for Longevity, stability and Durability.
The Horizontal PCB Panel Board Dryer Machine comprises of four pairs of driven squeegee towelling rollers, the first pair rotate in a shallow water tank with a water level detector, this pair helps to remove capillary water trapped in the drilled holes of the circuit board. The second and third pairs of rollers remove the excess moisture before the circuit board panel enters the heat zone where the high output thermostatically controlled hot air blower knife removes any remaining moisture from both surfaces of the board and from inside the holes. The PCB circuit or metal panel then exits through the last pair of rollers completely dry.
All towelling rollers are easily removable for cleaning or replacement using the available service kit.
The electronic control module allows the operator a choice of two heat settings with variable circuit board feed rates through the machine thus giving optimum drying rates. The PCB Circuit board panel dryer machine features an automatic over-run switch which operates the wet squeegee rollers at a maximum speed and runs with the blower heaters on for approximately ten minutes to part dry the rollers for future use.
