ST 65 Air Operated Production Desoldering System with SX-100

Terms and Definitions

Shop Air Powered Production Desoldering Station

ST65 Power Supply
There are no complicated controls to worry about with PACE's ST 65 ... just
turn a dial to the temperature you need and you're ready to desolder!


The ST 65 Desoldering Station was designed for high volume, production desoldering requirements. Incorporating PACE's famous no-clog SX-100 Sodr-X-Tractor Desoldering Handpiece (see video at right), the ST 65 incorporates a powerful, multistage venturi that is powered by your SX-100 Desoldering Handpiececompressed/shop air source, producing an ultra-fast rise vacuum that eliminates clogging/maintenance issues normally associated with rapid desoldering and rework operations. Because it uses shop-air instead of a large motor-pump, the unit is extremely compact and features an extremely small footprint, easily fitting in areas with limited bench space.

The ST-65 is an economical, yet durable desoldering system with simplified dial and single channel featuring IntelliHeat technology. Designed for easy operation, there is no programming, no display, just a simple twist of a knob! A color-coded diode tells you when you have reached target temperature. The heavy-duty, durable ESD-safe metal housing ensures years of service and the sloped face of the front panel is a standard feature for ease of use. An optional mounting bracket is available to mount the system under a work bench or shelf, preserving precious bench top space. Tips supplied separately.

SX-100 Sodr-X-Tractor: A Better Way to Desolder

PACE revolutionized the electronics industry in the 60's by creating the first self-contained continuous vacuum desoldering system. Now PACE has taken the best desoldering handpiece on the planet and made it better! The SX-100 Solder Extractor has been improved so that is does not clog! The modular heater has been re-engineered to transfer heat better through the length of new SX-100 Tips. SX-100 Desolder Tips will not clog because the isolated hot solder path is designed to stay well above solder melt temperature, preventing even Lead-Free solder from solidifying.

Designed for high volume desoldering operations, the SX-100 features an environmentally friendly/disposable collection chamber to maximize productivity. When the filter is full, just pull out the chamber, pop out the old filter and replace with a new one - all within 15 seconds! If you prefer, the SX-100 can also be used with a re-cleanable glass chamber (included). Optional 2 and 4-sided Pik-Tips allow safe, rapid reflow and removal of a wide variety of TSOP's, QFP's and Flatpacks. Pik-Tips are designed to reflow all the leads on the component simultaneously and incorporate a unique vacuum pick. Once reflowed, the vacuum is activated and the component is lifted off the PCB.

Easily Expands to Increase Capabilities!

The ST 65 is far more than a desoldering station. Its functionality can be easily expanded by adding any one of 8 IntelliHeat compatible handpieces including:
