Basic requirements for lead free wave soldering ? | 21 February, 2006

Hi People I will need some help on basic things really, we are replacing the existing solder pot with a lead free capable solder pot, but what are the other parameters that we need to look in to, to be able to achieve good quality soldering on the same machine in lead free environment. - What is the PCB top temperature required for lead free soldering and can the existing preaheating elements achieve that.
