Vapour phase is an alternative to IR reflow ovens. Vapour phase offers a better consistency in quality than small reflow ovens.
With vapour phase soldering, the PCB is submerged in hot Galden vapour. This vapour transfers heat to the PCB and melts the solder.
Because the Galden vapour is always at the same temperature, the process is very reliable. No components are overheated and no solderjoints are underheated.
The Galden liquid needs to be purchased separately. You need a minimum of 200ml to use the Mini Condens-IT. Each soldering cycle a few ml of Galden gets used up.
Over use the Galden will get contaminated with solder residue. You can simply filter the Galden with a paper filter (like a coffee filter).
There is actually only 1 small disadvantage: the Galden fluid is quite expensive. Fortunately, the oven is designed so that there is very little consumption.
Ideally, all Galden fluid can stay in the box, but in practice a small amount will always escape.
The Galden fluid is not poisonous or dangerous as long as it does not get warmer than 300 degrees. The
system is double secured against this.
As long as the bin is never opened during the soldering process, the consumption will not be more than about 0.5L per 100 prints. If we compare these costs with the costs of an IR reflow oven (which also delivers less quality prints), then more than 1000 prints can be soldered before the costs of this solution become higher.
