Bake vs Dry Box | 25 July, 2019

Hey all,

i'm hoping to get some feedback from the community on baking process versus a dry box.

current process we have for rework of PCBs is to perform a 16 hour bake cycle on hardware before BGA rework is performed. however this process is inefficient and the current baking oven we have is small capacity.

I've been looking at dry boxes but am unsure if this will achieve the same desired result, or if it will, how long of a period to reach to the same level of moisture removal?

lastly, if anyone has any recommended dry box suppliers please advise.

thanks in advance
