Why Use Tungsten Heater Device that Cannot Deform under High-Temperature?

tungsten heater deviceIn hot wire CVD (Chemical Vapor Deposition) system, the energy of a chemical reaction is provided by the tungsten wire, the substrate is also heated to a certain growth temperature by thermal radiation of the tungsten wire, and uniformity of the temperature of the substrate surface would be different due to the shape of the tungsten wire. One of the most important factors of film nucleation and its uniformity growth is the uniformity of substrate surface temperature.

In typical laboratory CVD small and medium systems, the tungsten wire is wound into a solenoid-shaped tungsten heater. This winding method is relatively simple that the outer diameter of each turn is the same. But using a solenoid-shaped tungsten heater, temperature distribution on the surface of the substrate is uneven enough, using a vertical projection line of the substrate surface of solenoid axis as a reference line, if the substrate surface is far away from this line, the temperature would become lower. What’s more, the temperature of the middle of the solenoid itself is higher than the ends, which is one of the reasons for uneven temperature distribution of the substrate surface.

On the one hand, the solenoid-shaped tungsten heater will result in an uneven temperature of the substrate surface. On the other hand, in the CVD growth process, the tungsten wire usually deform under a high temperature, high temperature of the middle part would hang down and bend, led to the evenness of temperature distribution of substrate surface becomes lower, eventually makes it impossible to continue the CVD growth process, it must be replaced a new tungsten wire before continuing. As a result, it will have a certain impact on test results. Because the new tungsten wire can not exactly the same as original tungsten wire under various conditions, which will definitely affect the reliability of comparative test results.

Tungsten Heater Device that Cannot Deform under High-Temperature——Tungsten Wire

tungsten heaterIn large CVD(Chemical Vapor Deposition) system (diameter of the reaction chamber is longer than50cm), in order to form a large area and uniform film, using a large area and fence Czochralski tungsten wire to eliminate the uneven temperature and deformation problem of heating wire. But during film growth, large-scale CVD system usually have greater power and gas consumption, and when the arrangement of Czochralski tungsten wire, total current through the hot wire will be great, generally at 100 amperes or more. Therefore, it needs high current and high power hot wire heating transformer and a corresponding device for cooling systems. The device is relatively complex, which is not suitable for doing research for an experimental basis.

For the core heating section of tungsten heater, it can be improved by the following measures to solve the above problems.
1. Tungsten wire can be wounded into a flat ring, and it would be molded in a one time with a special material mold.
2. Using the high temperature boron nitride ceramic rod whose melting point is higher than 2400 ℃ to be fixed with tungsten wire.
3. Put and fix the boron nitride ceramic rod on the upper end of the electrode, so that the whole heating tungsten wire can keep parallel with the substrate surface.
4. Before using the new tungsten wire, it should be through the stress treatment.
After the new tungsten has being wounded and fixed, in an normal growth atmosphere, dong the annealing process for a long time at low temperatures to eliminate stress generated in the process of wound and stereotype.

The heating process is: every time the temperature of tungsten wire rises 100 ℃, then heating for 2 hours, until the temperature of tungsten wire reaches the growth temperature.

This is a specific improvement measures for the tungsten wire wound, this kind of tungsten heater device will greatly improve the efficiency of the subsequent coating.

Advantages of Tungsten Heater for Aluminizing of Car Light

Car light is an important device for ensuring the driving safety, and it is also one of the most important outer parts. With the innovation of science and technology, and the rapid development of automobile industry, so the automotive lighting requirements are also getting higher and higher. Quality of reflector lamp directly affects the car's lighting effects. Conventional lights are made through molding, most of them use aluminizing method to the make reflector film to increase the reflectivity of the surface of the light. Domestic aluminizing technology includes ion bombardment, aluminizing, put on protective layer. In order to prevent the aluminum layer from oxidation and corrosion, these three aspects are carried out separately. Pretreatment relates to the adhesion of the aluminum layer, which affects the quality of the film, and the thickness of the protective layer and the aluminum layer have a certain influence in the quality of the lights. If the production cycle of aluminum is too long, it will increase the cost of production, and the quality of the protective layer becomes poor. Therefore, to solve this kind of problem is especially important.

This kind of aluminizing process with tungsten heater can make effect of component will be better in aluminizing, reducing the failure rate of aluminizing to some extent. Clean air molecules, water vapor and grease adsorbed on the surface of the base material of the lamp in pretreatment, and roughen the surface of the lamp, which can greatly improving the bonding strength the surface and the aluminum layer. In addition, transfer upper and lower parts by transporter can reduce dust pollution, which can improve the effect of the lights aluminizing. This process not only improves the quality of the protective layer, but also shortens the original production cycle of aluminizing from 26 minutes to 6 minutes, so it has reduced scrap rates and input costs for lights.

Cesium Tungsten Oxide Ultra Fine Powder Preparing Method

Tungsten oxide has excellent performance in electrochromic, catalysis, gas and other aspects. The composite oxides - tungsten bronze metal oxides generally refer darker colored metallic luster, and usually a metal conductor or metal semiconductor. Currently, cesium tungsten oxide, due to its low resistance and excellent visible light transmittance and near-infrared shielding properties, is widely used in the preparation of the conductive film used in glass septum thermal insulation coating.

The traditional preparation method of cesium tungsten oxide uses tungsten, tungsten acid source, Cs/W molar ratio of 1: (2.857~100), at 180~200°C reaction conditions for 1~3 days. The preparation takes a long reaction period, is of low efficiency, which is not conducive to industrial production.

Tungsten Oxide Used to Increase the Heat-input Amount of Near Infrared Radiation

The invention relates to the use of tungsten oxide or tungstate to increase the heat-input amount of near infrared radiation. It was found that these materials exhibit a distinct higher effect than other known Infrared Radiation(IR) absorbers although absorbing the same amount of energy. This is very surprising and cannot be explained so far. Tungsten bronzes incorporated in coatings led to a much higher temperature increase upon irradiation with IR than expected according to its spectral absorption capacity. The temperature increasing measured was distinctly higher than found with other known IR absorbers and reached almost the temperature observed with carbon black.

Tungsten Oxide

Many technical processes (like laser welding and marking of plastics, Near Infrared Radiation(NIR) curing and drying of coatings, drying of printings, laser marking of paper, curing and drying of adhesives, fixing of ink toners to a substrate, heating of plastic pre-forms etc.) require an efficient, quick and focused local heat-input through IR radiation. The conversion of IR radiation into heat is realized by placing appropriate IR absorbers at the place where the heat is required. Carbon black is a well known efficient IR absorber for such processes. But carbon black has one big draw back: that's its strong black colour. Thus carbon black cannot be applied for coloured (other than black or grey), uncoloured, white or transparent systems. For such systems a "white or colourless carbon black" is a great technical need.

Very surprisingly the tungsten oxide material of the present invention comes quite near to this target profile, although it is slightly bluish to grayish. But due to its surprisingly high efficiency of conversion of IR radiation into heat, this tungsten oxide material can be applied at such a low concentrations that its own colour is acceptable for most applications. The same is true for transparency: the material (plastics, coatings) containing this tungsten oxide remains also highly transparent.

The NIR curing of coatings can be used for all type of coatings including both pigmented and unpigmented coating materials. Depending upon the nature of the organic binder, coatings may comprise solvent or may be solventless or water-free. They may also comprise fillers and other additives in addition to the pigments. Any kind of coating is suitable in the method according to the invention, for example, powder coatings, clearcoats, high-solids coatings, effect coatings, high-gloss coatings, silk-finish coatings, matt-finish coatings, spray coatings, dip-coatings, pour-coatings etc.
