Aqueous Technologies Corporation

Manufacturer of aqueous-based defluxing equipment, cleanliness testing equipment, and stencil cleaning equipment.


Aqueous Technologies is not your typical cleaning equipment company. We are proud of our unique approach to cleaning and cleanliness testing. An approach that begins with our core competency. At Aqueous Technologies, we live and breathe cleaning. In fact, we only manufacture cleaning / defluxing systems, cleanliness testers, and stencil / misprint cleaning machines. These products represent our core competency. By limiting our product line to a single competency, we are able to offer products that represent “best practices”, a fact emphasized by the thirty seven prestigious industry awards bestowed upon our defluxing, cleanliness testing, and stencil cleaning products, more than all other cleaning equipment companies combined.

Throughout our near twenty year history, we have manufactured and installed more than 3,300 machines across six continents. Our products are in use today by leading military, aerospace, communications, medical, and commercial OEM’s and EMS providers.

From Trident, the industry’s most popular fully automated defluxing machine to the Trident High-Yield high-throughput defluxing and cleanliness testing system (more throughput than an inline cleaner at a fraction of the cost), Aqueous Technologies has a model to fit virtually any production and cleanliness requirement. From the state-of-the-art Zero-Ion ionic contamination (cleanliness) tester to the StencilWasher ECO ultrasonic stencil cleaning system, both starting at $9,950, Aqueous Technologies’ products, known worldwide for performance, are also one of the industry’s best values.

The Environmental Cost of Green

Sep 30, 2009 | Aqueous Technologies Corporation

Being involved in the electronics assembly industry for more than 23 years, specifically in the field of defluxing and cleanliness testing, I have seen my share of environmental regulations. Long before the debate over lead-free alloys, there was the Montreal Protocol....

De-fluxing Eases

Aug 19, 2009 | Mike Konrad, President, Aqueous Technologies

There are several advantages to using a contract assembler. One of which is maintaining the ability to dictate desired results. Therefore, how those results are achieved becomes someone else's concern. When you combine this with the fact that many contract assemblers are not accustomed to saying "no," you become a witness to the birth of innovation....

Defluxing Déjà vu

Jul 29, 2009 | Michael Konrad, President, Aqueous Technologies Corporation

While the origin of the phrase "may you live in interesting times" is widely disputed, the fact that we indeed live in an interesting time is certainly not. While record bank failures and declines in stock values, only rivaled by the Depression era, wreak havoc on consumer confidence, the economic trickle-down effect translates to reductions in production output and ultimately the consolidation of many industries, including electronic assembly....

How Clean Is Clean?

Mar 19, 2009 | Michael Konrad, President; Aqueous Technologies Corporation

Over the past several years, post-reflow defluxing of circuit assemblies has gained in popularity. Microminiaturization of components and boards, combined with higher expected reliability and increased product liability, have contributed to the prominence of defluxing. Lead-free solder paste - with its higher reflow temperatures and negative effects on flux - increase the likelihood of post-reflow defluxing to increase a product's reliability and aesthetic appearance....
