1222 betek certification process

Betek‘s Spray Control protection shields are available in different types for a variety of applications.

Made of DIN 1.4404 (ASTM 316) stainless steel, Spray Control is highly resistant to oils and chemicals, does not suffer any embrittlement (in open-air plants, under exposure to UV) and is temperature-resistant up to 400°C.
In a simulation in 2017 on a defective flange connection with up to 300bar, tested in the renowned environmental simulation laboratory Treo, in Hamburg, Germany, the flange guard has been tested. On various sizes and shapes, with 100, 200 and 300bar over 10 minutes at each pressure, the result was every time the same: The flange guard Spray Control® had no signs of wear or deformation, nor any defect.


RTS Reflowable Thermal Switch

SCHURTER introduces its new RTS. The RTS is a particularly compact overtemperature protection device using advanced SMD technology. It is suited for the highest demands of protection in power semiconductors.    
RTS stands for "Reflowable Thermal Switch". It was developed to protect highly integrated power semiconductors like MOSFETs, ICs, IGBTs, Triacs, SCRs, etc. from overheating. Before mechanical activation, the RTS can be mounted using conventional reflow soldering techniques with temperature profiles up to 260 °C.
