NASA Endorsed AST1003-0304N Drying Furnace Won Gold
at the 6th Annual 2014 Golden Bridge Awards Presentation



Torrey Hills Technologies, LLC (THT) and HENGLI® Eletek, Co. Ltd   were jointly honored as Gold Prize winner for the 6th annual 2014 Golden Bridge Awards under the New Products and Services from all over the world category for their innovative model AST1003-0304N Belt Drying Furnace. Golden Bridge Awards are an annual industry and peers recognition program honoring Best Companies of all types and sizes from all over the world.

NASA, one of the earliest customers to take advantage of this pioneering furnace technology, endorsed THT/HENGLI®'s entry into the Awards.

Concerned about the negative impacts of modern manufacturing on environment, the HENGLI®/THT team designed a ground-breaking VOC removal system for their model AST belt furnace. Connected to the belt furnace exhaust, the VOC removal system eliminates VOC emissions before reaching outside air. Widely used in electronics manufacturing as solvents that are dried on a belt dryer and exhausted into the air, VOCs are one of the top causes for smog. The electronics manufacturing process contributes a significant portion of VOCs to air pollution, yet THT and HENGLI® are the first to achieve a green solution that allows VOCs to be oxidized into CO2 before being released into the ambient air.
