JJL1200A Polysilicon Ingot Furnace

Introduction
JJL1200A polysilicon ingot furnace is specially designed for solar energy industry. It’s mainly used in manufacturing high-volume, high-quality silicon ingot. It is a high efficiency and energy-saving equipment that adopts the world’s prevailing heat-resistant mode in combination of advanced PC control system.

The furnace is designed as per the following standard:
GB/T 191, GB3768, GB/T4879, GB5226.1, BG/T13306, JB2299

Manufacturing flow of the furnace is as below:
Stainless steel furnace body → sealing parts mold → flange machining → furnace welding → welding line detection → furnace chamber 10kg water pressure test → surface sand blasting → surface passivation → finish machining → vacuum pressure testing → furnace general assemble

Working flow of the furnace is as below:
Feeding → heating → melting → annealing → cooling

Remark: feed the polysilicon material into the SiN-painted crucible and put it on the heat exchange platform. Close the furnace body and start the vacuum system to guarantee the vacuum requirement. Output the current to the heater by controlling the transformer. After heating for several hours the polysilicon will be melt and then open the insulation cage and directional solidify the silicon liquid through heat exchange system. Use annealing and cooling processes after it is fully solidified. After cooling down to certain temperature, open the furnace body and use the forklift to take out the finished ingot.

Major Components

Steel structure platform

The platform of the polycrystalline silicon ingot furnace is divided into two parts: three outriggers in the middle position to hold up the furnace body and the driving device. There are four columns supporting the whole platform for inner inspection and maintenance. Under the platform, there is cable tray wire and cooling water pipe system. Compressed air and electric system which is not safe for operators are assembled on the higher side of the frame.

Remark: multi-furnaces can share one ladder and the platform can be connected in order to save space.

Vacuum furnace
The vacuum furnace consists of upper and lower furnace body. The upper part is fixed at the frame and the lower part can be lifted stably by three sets of ball screw bars. When the furnace is closed, the sealing rings on the flange will be pressed and the lock device will be closed. The flange on the upper furnace body can be dismantled for future maintenance. A peep mirror on the furnace top can be used for checking the inside status of the furnace.
The furnace body is welded with double layer stainless steel (outer 304L and inner 316L stainless steel). All welding joints are checked with flaw detection. The important welding joints must completely meet class II X ray (RT) flaw detection standard, and other welding joints should meet national UT/PT flaw detection standard.

There’s cooling system between the two layers of stainless steel to allow cycle cooling water to run, taking away the heat caused by directional crystallization and assuring safe operation for the furnace.

Remark: the vacuum furnace is designed by using professional software with precision stress analysis. Using high quality stainless steel and following strict welding standard help to ensure safety. Meanwhile, there is safety vent being designed to ensure safer operation.

Hot zone
The hot zone of our polycrystalline silicon ingot furnace adopts well-known professional liquid thermodynamics software FLUENT to simulate the thermal yield of 1200-1300kg multi-silicon crystallization. The main material of the hot zone is imported, and the hot zone has strict requirement on ash content and temperature to prevent pollution from the hot zone.

The hot zone is mainly assembled on the upper furnace part, and the insulation cage is welded by 310S stainless steel. The carbon fiber material is imported from global well-known brand and can be cut into many pieces for assembling. The design of the hot zone has sufficiently taken into account the convenience for installation and cost performance of maintenance.

There are four heaters at four sides and one heater at the top of the hot zone. The heat exchange block is set at the lower furnace body, while the furnace closed, four high tension graphite columns will make the heat exchange block hang in the insulation cage, it can help to open the bottom plate and use the cooling copper plate for cooling. The cage can be opened for crystallization.

The G7 ingot furnace has the following features:
Six-side heating, and three-zone control
Combined insulation screen with both vertical lifting and horizontal opening
Water cooling copper plate at the bottom
The hot zone can be upgraded to G8
Loading capacity: 1200kg
Power consumption: <6.5kWh/kg
Capacity: 35% higher than G6

Vacuum and gas supply
Vacuum system of this polycrystalline silicon ingot furnace consists of a vacuum machine, vacuum pipeline, solenoid valves and other pipelines, etc. All pumps for the vacuum machine are imported from global recognized brand.
The air supply system of our polysilicon ingot furnace is made up of mass flow meter and solenoid proportioning valve to allow convenient control of argon flux to meet the different vacuum requirements. The vacuum system and the furnace body are insulated by one baffle.
Remark: vacuum degree and argon supply will be controlled by proportional valve.

Water cooling system
Cooling water in the pipelines which runs through each part of the furnace and electrode can efficiently take off the heat produced in the process of crystallization, so as to ensure the safety of the furnace. Cooling pipelines are equipped with sensors which can reflect the working condition of the system, the cooling water which takes off heat will be re-cooled by exterior cooling water system.

Control system
Control system includes upper and lower PC, which is designed with Chinese or English interface. The upper PC is mainly constituted by industrial computer. It can display the working status of the furnace, monitor malfunction and alarm the operator. Lower PC is mainly constituted by intelligent control system.
