Best Fluid For P&P Nozzle Cleaning | 7 November, 2017

I have a number of nozzles for an Assembléon AX-201 that have been allowed to become clogged with old, dried-out solder paste. I am thinking of using an ultrasonic tank in an attempt to clean them for re-use, but I am concerned that isopropyl alcohol will damage the plastic that makes up part of the nozzle. My question is, what fluid should I use to break down the flux within the solder paste, without causing damage to the plastic within the nozzle?

isopropyl alcohl will not harm plasic what we usually do is to dip the nozzle for few minutes in alcohol then pressure air to blow all dirty from it

There are many not aggressive cleaning solutions out there that will do it. I used to use Simple Green for example.
