Transported by LTL Freight (Truck)

Product Options

Control Model:


    Spray pyrolysis is a process in which a thin film is deposited by spraying a solution on a heated surface, where the constituent reacts to form a chemical compound. The process is particularly useful for the deposition of oxides and has long been a production method for applying a transparent electrical conductor of Tin oxide (SnO2) or Stannic oxide to a glass substrate. Now this technique is increasingly used to prepare perovskite thin film, such as in perovskite solar cell.

    MSK-USP-02 is a desktop ultrasonic spray pyrolysis (USP) equipment, where parameters like dispensing rate of the solution and speed of spray head movement are precisely controlled by a software interface. A positive displacement pump controlled by a stepper motor is used to dispense solution as per requirement. The ultrasonic spray head provides thin film coating and its movement is controlled by the stepper motor driven linear stages in X and Y direction to ensure uniform coating. The spray pattern and velocity can be adjusted by changing the compressed air pressure at the nozzle. The temperature of the substrate heater plate is controlled independently through a dedicated controller.

  • Three Spray heads are included 
    • Ultrasonic spray head (compressed air assisted) for uniform, thin film coating
    • Compressive air spray for thick film coating
    • 20 mL syringe pump with compressive air port for thick film coating of small quantity solution.
  • Dispensing unit capacity: 50 mL & 250 mL (two containers included) container

  • Syringe pump dispensing rate: 20 μL/min - 10 mL/min adjustable via software
  • One brand new laptop computer or one Microsoft Surface Pro with pre-installed software is included. (Pls select at the Product Options)

  • Ultrasonic atomizer nozzle: 40 kHz, 130 W
  • Producing a fine spray of droplets of 50 microns average size
  • Fluid viscosity range: 1 - 50 mPa·s (cP)
  • Sprayer traverse:  X - Y 200 mm max
  • Drive speed X axis: 10-800 mm / sec
  • Drive speed Y axis:  1-12 mm / sec
  • Note: you may use inner gas or compress air to shape the spray pattern and increase spray velocity
Air Compressor

  • Compressed air with a pressure of ~ 4 bar is required for normal operation of the unit
  • One compact air compressor is included for immediate use
  • Attention: If a gas cylinder is used instead of air compressor(pic2), a two-stage pressure regulator(pic1) must be installed on the gas cylinder to limit the pressure within the required working range for safe operation. Click here to learn the installation of a gas regulator.

Application Notes
  • Be cautious of using harzardous materials. The working chamber of this unit is not flame-proof, explosive proof or vacuum sealed. Contact your health and safety department manager for detail material handling instruction and prevention/protection practises and recommandations. If you need a vacuum sealed safety chamber please consider the MSK-USP-06.
