BIG PCB PREHEATER? IT'S THE BIG GRID™
Bottom-Side Forced Convection PCB PreheatThru-Hole, SMD, QFN & BGA Rework & Repair
16 Sq. Inch Preheating Grid (110 sq. cm) & 1,500 Watt Power, 50 CFM Air Supply (1,415 Liters/Minute)
The Zephyrtronics' AirBath “bathes the circuit board in warm air to reduce thermal stresses
to the board and its components.”-- NASA Report, January 9, 2004

Our Digital ZT-1-BGS-DPU AirBath™ Delivers More Preheat Power Than Others in Its Class.

The BigGrid AirBath has a very large 16-square inch (110 sq. cm) pre-heating grid, 1,500 watts of power and 50 CFM (1,415 liters per minute) of air supply for PCB preheating and cooling at the bench. With over 15 years on the market with an impeccable pedigree, this is the same BigGrid AirBath used by NASA and JPL for dependable preheating during the Mars Rover programs.

The BigGrid is manufactured in the U.S.A and has and has a one-year limited warranty. Powerful and so effective for large PCB's, high copper content substrates, heat-sinks, large ground planes.

Beware of imitative pre-heaters with less than 10CFM (276 liters/minute). They are ineffective and compensate by higher temp settings, but the glass transition for FR-4 PCB's is only 170°C. Higher preheat temps are not the solution, but greater volume of forced convection is.

 

Loaded With Premium Features: The BigGrid gets into all the nooks and crannies of the PCB assembly where hot plates and IR pre-heaters can't go (more below).  It is ESD-safe; features illuminated indicator lights (blue: cooling; red: preheating); it is self-contained with an internal air supply (no hookups); all inside a  durable, steel housing for industrial use.

Critical Thermal Ramping: The BigGrid has the the critically important industry standard, built-in temperature ramping of 2° to 4°C per second preventing thermal shock to sensitive chips, delicate ceramic caps and glass diodes. The ramp is "built in" by design into every Zephyrtronics AirBath™ Preheating System.

Beware of other "preheating devices" where temp ramping is not controlled and too fast.
