Depending on the type of teflon material, thickness, and reflow profile requirements, these will have a direct bearing on your maximum process allowable PCB pallet size.

You'll want to be careful on how big the PCB or pallet is. Larger teflon PCBs processed in a reflow oven on rails will tend to flex in a standard Sn63 profile unless properly supported or fixturized.

More specific info is needed about your machines and PCB attributes in order to provide appropriate responses.
