Aoyue Int 852 hot air station temperature measurements

Done on 2014-09-04. YMMV w.r.t. absolute temperature; I guess performance can differ between different stations. However, temperature stability regardless of airflow is IMHO ok for this station - I'm quite pleased.

Setup

TC kapton-taped to handpiece; tip of TC approx 2mm in front of, and in the center of 5.5mm inner diameter nozzle. TC + meter have approx 2.5 % max deviation. Measured at approx 21 degC; airco + fan on.

Action

measure temp at various temperatures and airflows. Wait until temperature stable before recording measurement. During operation, temperature goes about 5 degC above and below the recorded value.

note: didn't measure higher temperatures, since they are not considered useful to me

Result (temperatures in deg C)
