MBT 250-SDTP SMT/Thru-Hole Rework System

Terms and Definitions

Most popular PACE System ever ... on thousands of repair benches!

The MBT 250 Series of Soldering, Desoldering & Rework Systems are simply the most popular PACE series ever produced, for good reason. First introduced in in the early 90's, tens of thousands of units have been manufactured, many of which are still in use after 19 years! Renowned for their reliability, sustainability and longevity, PACE continues to support the MBT 250 Series with upgrades and enhancements. That's why MBT 250's are utilized at all major Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps Depots, in thousands of intermediate level rmaintenance shops, and on commercial repair shop benches worldwide.

3 Channel System Independently Powers & Controls 3 Handpieces

MBT250 Power Supply
If our standard MBT configurations aren't exactly what you need, buy the Power Supply and pick your own handpieces.


The self-contained MBT 250 Power Supply (PPS-85) features three individually powered and controlled handpiece channels, providing the capability to run 3 different SensaTemp handpieces simultaneously, and at different temperatures! A digital readout displays the current channel's temperature information, error codes and programming status. The durable extruded aluminum chassis is is ultra-rugged, ESD-safe and takes up minimal space.

SDTP - Solder, Desolder, Tweeze, Pik

The MBT 250-SDTP (Solder-Desolder-Tweez-Pik) version is available with the PS-90 Soldering Iron, SX-100 Sodr-X-Tractor, TT-65 ThermoTweez and TP-65 ThermoPik. MBT 250-SD (Solder-Desolder) and MBT 250-SDT (Solder-Desolder-Tweez) configurations are also available. Additional SensaTemp compatible handpieces and accessories can be added to expand either model's capabilities.

PS-90 Soldering IronThe PS-90 Universal Soldering Iron is excellent for general purpose and heavy-duty soldering and SMT rework operations where high thermal capacity and flexibility are required. The Iron provides a wide range of SMD and Thru-Hole installation and removal capability as well as unsurpassed thermal performance on heavy, multilayer Thru-Hole assemblies at safe, lower working temperatures. A variety of 3/16" shank, quick change Thru-Hole and SMD tips, for chip components, SOT's, SOIC's and other components, are available (supplied separately). And at about $7 each, long-lasting PS-90 Tips are very inexpensive!

Ideal for both through-hole and surface mount desoldering, the clog-free SX-100 Sodr-X-Tractor is the best performing solder extractionSX-100 Desoldering Handpiece tool on the market today. The handpiece can be used with a disposable Sodr/Flux-Trap paper solder collection chamber or re-cleanable Glass Chamber. 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! The heater's laser-trimmed, Platinum RTD Temperature Sensor is 5 times more accurate than conventional thermocouples. The widest range of standard, precision and long-reach desoldering tips are available, including 2 and 4-sided Pik-Tips, and Flo-D-Sodr desoldering tips available for safe removal of excess surface solders and BGA pad clean-up.

A versatile SMT removal tool, the TT-65 ThermoTweez Thermal Tweezer provides safe, one-handed, rapid reflow and component removal of PLCCs and other 4 or 2 sided SMT TT-65 ThermoTweez Thermal Tweezer for SMT Reworkcomponents. Unlike other methods, its high thermal capacity and targeted heat delivery remove even the largest SMDs in just seconds without damaging the PCB or risking adjacent component reflow, even on heavy assemblies. The patented vertically oriented handpiece and a wide variety of quick-change, slim-line tips easily reach into the tightest spaces for fast, safe component removal. The TT-65 also features a patented “stroke” adjustment to reduce hand fatigue for repetitive operations.

The TP-65 TherTP-65 ThermoPik moPik with vacuum pick-up provides safe, rapid reflow and removal of a wide variety of QFPs and Flatpacks. Its high thermal efficiency design targets controlled heat right at the joints, away from sensitive components and substrate areas. The TP-65's self-adjusting, integral vacuum pick with finger switch actuator provides for easy, one handed operation.
