Tin Reflow Heating System
Tin Reflow Systems for Strip Heating Applications
In a tin reflow line, coiled steel strip is continuously coated with a thin layer of Tin. The inductor, uniquely designed to avoid magnetic field losses and stresses, directly and uniformly heats the tin to the melting temperature, with high efficiencies. The Tin subsequently reflows forming a uniform, non-porous, bonded tinplate layer. This safe, non-toxic process is ideal for the food industry, as well as electronics manufacturers.
Reflowed tin provides:
- Increased Resistance to Corrosion
- Improved Solderability
- Increased Weldability
- Greater Ductility
- Non-Porous End Product
- Safe, Non-Toxic, Lead-Free Material
- Reduced Mechanical Stresses
- A Bright, Lustrous Finish

Dependable Pacer Power Supply & Capacitor Station
Our Pacer Power Supply line features solid state, transistor based, high frequency converters to ensure the most efficient, dependable power source for the tin reflow process. The capacitor station corrects the power factor of the load, providing lower operating costs, increased efficiency, higher reliability, and longer lasting equipment.
Advanced, Compact Induction Heating Coils
A strong magnetic field is generated by passing high current through the induction coil. Our induction heating coils are specifically designed to heat the strip material to the precise temperature needed for the application. Our engineers determine the ideal design based on specific customer requirements, ensuring optimum quality and production rates.
Suggested Tin Reflow Parameters
In a typical Electrolytic Tinning Line, the tinning section falls after the pickling section and before the post treatment section and exit looper. For best Tin Reflowing results, we recommend the applications that fall within the following parameters:
- Material: Cold rolled annealed and tempered low carbon steel
- Strip Width: Typical range between 40 mm to 1,400 mm
- Strip Thickness: Typical range between 0.1 mm to 0.6 mm, but up to 1.2 mm
- Process Speed: Up to 600 m/min
- Temperature: Up to 275 degrees Celsius
