Despatch enhances firing furnace solar-cell production systems



Despatch Industries has successfully completed the latest set of enhancements and testing for its CF Series firing furnace. Improvements to the maximum belt speed have increased up to 300 inches per minute while thermal transfer methods, notably in the cooling sector, have allowed the firing furnace to reach higher maximum ramp rates. Despatch notes that enrichments to its CF Series allow it to reach a maximum ramp rate up to 200°C for heating and cooling.

Erik Anderson, product manager for Despatch Solar, stated, “While not all current cell architectures require extreme belt speeds and increased ramp rates, we continue to build our product extendibility for future developmental architectures and materials that will be in production tomorrow.”
