Profiling technology for contact paste driers and contact firing furnaces with a very low clearance

March 10, 2015

Cambridge, UK – The new Datapaq SolarPaq temperature profiling system is a combined solution for photovoltaic cell contact drying and firing processes. To ensure efficient energy use, ovens and furnaces used in the solar/PV industry are built with low entrance and exit heights. Consequently, in-process temperature monitoring requires special technology. Datapaq has designed an ultrathin logger (9 mm) and thermal barrier (16 mm) which can be used in all these processes. The DQ1840 steel-cased logger, developed from the established Q18 line, performs the majority of profiling runs without extra thermal protection. It withstands up to three minutes at up to 300 °C. For use in firing furnaces, Datapaq supplies the TB7237 thermal barrier which provides protection at up to 800 °C for 45 s or at 400 °C for 4 min.

The Datapaq system is delivered ready for use and includes a data logger, an optional thermal barrier, high and low temperature thermocouples, and Datapaq Insight Solar software. The industry-specific software quickly transforms temperature data into meaningful, clear information as a basis for production decisions. By means of the new, dual-use profiling system, manufacturers can ensure photovoltaic panels with optimal efficiency through the correct drying and firing of every cell.
