(SAN DIEGO, CA, April 8, 2008) -- Torrey Hills Technologies, LLC announced today that the company is now serving the alternative energy industry through its introduction of three solar cell application furnace models C HGL-5504 Far Infrared Belt Dryer, RSK2503 (Z) 06A Solar Cell Firing Furnace and RSK3003 (Z)-09A Solar Cell Drying & Firing Furnace. These furnaces are involved in the key area of solar cell production and are optimized for paste burnout and metallization firing in the 750-950C range.

HGL-5504 Far Infrared Belt Dryer operates at temperatures from 250C up to 300C. It is for the drying of solar cell inks or pastes before thick film circuit firing. RSK2503 (Z) 06A Solar Cell Firing Furnace is featured with high-density IR lamp heating, stable driving design with digital speed display, and a special water and air mixed cooling module. It can work up to 4000mm per minute for contact pastes firing, which increases the machine turnover capacity significantly. The special designed heating layout, atmosphere system and chamber structure work ultra effectively for photovoltaic product manufacturing.

To streamline the production process, RSK3003 (Z)-09A Furnace brings together solar cell drying and solar cell firing as an integrated system. By doing this, the solar cells transfer directly from the drying oven into the firing furnace without additional handling, which improves efficiency and optimizes throughput. The combination lowers the costs for equipment, utilities, and factory floor space.

I am very proud to say that our engineers have conquered every difficulty and succeeded in launching these standardized furnace models for the solar cell industry, said President Ken Kuang. Now manufacturers can have the same high quality furnaces at unbeatable prices. Our next goal is to design and market furnaces for the fuel cell industry.
