I use BioAct SC-10 and it seems to work pretty well. The best bet is to contact your solder paste manufacturer and ask them for a recommended cleaning solvent for the flux residues...

Last winter, there were all these dire predictions about running-out of tequila. Yano, Nuyakas [the place so nice, they named it twice!!!] doing margaritas with rum, urk, and all that. So we went-out and laid in a case each of Herradura and Patron. Webe setfoda summa. Now, I just need to replenish da Hoegaarden White.

Oooo, where was I? Ohyea, cleaning flux res [res? I guess.] from ovens. The flux you use determines the flux res. you have, which determines the solvent you use. Try checking with your supplier. On the other hand, for the adventurous, look at this SMTnet thread => Todays crazy idea?!

Turning things just a bit, our working theory is: burnt flux crud in the box is in part a function of the amount of flux crud in the vent tube. So, we are tossing flex tubes on a schedule and keeping track of the gum build-up.
