We are going through the motions of acquiring and setting up a new to us wave solder machine. My question, is any utilizing a solder/flux containment pan or other type system beneath the wave to help keep areas around the wave solder machine cleaner than they otherwise would be without it?

I've been in shops with a flux containment pan under the wave fluxer. While I'd rather see excess flux in a containment pan than on the floor, but I'd prefer to see flux applied precisely to eliminate the need for either using a containment pan or cleaning up fluxer slobber from the floor.

So, how about you talking to us about: * Type of fluxer you're using * Preheater power and type * Flux type and formulation * Steps you take in setting-up the fluxer * Steps you take in maintaining the fluxer
