Reflow oven/wave solder air quality filter | 9 May, 2006

Hi,

My company is using HEPA filter to improve air quality coming out of oven/wave solder. But the cost of such filter is quite high and we need to improve the consumption. Any suggestion from fellow experts out there?

a. Anybody did a cost reduction project on HEPA filter with good air quality out? Can share with me. b. Anybody use pre-filter? Can suggest any? c. In terms of process, what can be reduce (flux?) to improve the air quality? Any suggestions?

Thanks. Helmi

Grease filters work well. They're cheap, easy to clean and come in all sizes. Will not reduce your air flow by much either.
