R&D Systems for Uniform Powder Coating and Infiltration
The PowderCoat 300™ is a Chemical Vapor Deposition and Infiltration System designed to process powder materials for high-technology applications.
Three-Zone Resistance Furnace Heater
Clamshell heater with automatic opening and heat exhaust plenum for fast cooldown
Single-Chamber Reactor with Tumbler Design for Uniform Mixing
Unloading Sample Under Inert Ambient Conditions
Main control station WinPrC process control and graphing software
In this process, precursor gases react to form a coating onto powder substrates. Source gases are supplied through a gas management system to the inlet of a heated chamber. Thermodynamics and kinetics drive both precursor reaction and decomposition. A three-zone furnace with resistive heating can maintain process temperatures up to 1100°C. The chamber has a rotating barrel that mixes the powder during processing. Ramp up and ramp down rates are achieved by real time PID precision control. Our robust process control system maintains temperatures within half a degree as well as the pressure within +/- 1% of set point throughout deposition runs. Controlled and rapid cooldown features result in consistent processing and reduced cycle time.
Hazardous gas storage and delivery, process reactor, and exhaust treatment subsystems can be provided as a complete integrated solution. Each component of the System is taken from our expansive library of process equipment configurations.
PowderCoat 300™ Features & Benefits:
powered by CVDWinPrC™
Powered by our CVDWinPrC™ process control software, the systems automatically log data and graphically show time-dependent values of user-selected parameters. CVDWinPrC™ also allows users to load preprogrammed recipes, modify, check, and create new recipes, and view real-time or saved process data.
The systems have application configured safety protocols embedded into relay logic, PLC, and CVDWinPrC™ software.
