Flux clogging up exhaust ducts | 4 May, 2006

Hi, There are a couple of Omniflow 7 and 7E that are being used in the production. Recently we found a lot of flux clogging up the exhaust ducts. Anybody who uses the same type of tool who has seen this kind of problem? How can we fix this? Does the tool come with flux management system? This cause the particle count in the clean room to be high as well. Please advise.

Please read your manual, I am sure that it will address proper maintenance of your oven ducting and flux build up. The MFGR will also be able to specifically address your problem and let you know if any upgrades are available.

Flux collection filters/chambers do require periodic maintanence.

It does specify when to clean. But when we open it up, there's not much flux in the containment. The containment doesnt seem to trap the flux. infact, we hv more flux in the duct than the containment. anyway, we will talk to MFGR to get their recommendation. Thanks.
