DIY Heat Gun Top Heater with DIY Nozzle

Postby code0102stinks » Tue Apr 02, 2013 6:02 am

Been finished with this top heater project for a while but decided to show it in this forum. The DIY nozzle I designed I believe
is the only of it's kind.

Some pics of the build

This is the nozzle I designed for my top heater. It designed to use high air speed that is free flowing and not "pressurized" hot air. The hot air exausts
upward through the outer square tube.

New nozzle mounted on heat gun top heater.

Here is pics of the burn tests compared from my aoyue 968 with 41mm netted nozzle to my nozzle design on a heat gun top heater.
I used to have about 20C temp difference side to side with the 968. I have a temp differential of 2.5C with my new nozzle and heat gun.
The second burn test of the aoyue shown is with a special air deflector I made that is incerted in the 41mm nozzle. If tweaked a bit it could
improve the 968 even more, but I just forgot it and went with the heat gun build. Deflector is shown next to the nozzle.

This a close up view of the deflector installed into the inlet of the nozzle.

That's a top mod code, thanks for sharing your designs, I also liked the way you had positioned the extractor...

Nice..did you build the box from scratch, or donor it from something else?

I built the enclosure from scratch. I was posting this last night before bed and forgot to post the pics of the DIY Nozzle so you
can see the design of the air flow. The outer square tube sits close to the pcb. Most of the hot air will reflect of the bga/pcb and exit
up between the two square tubes. Inner square tube is sized to reflow an xbox fat gpu.

Where did you find the guide on building this?

Can you put a picture up of the actual top heater?

How did you build the nozzle?
