Trident XLD Automatic Defluxing and Cleanliness Testing Systems Description:

Trident XLD is the flagship of the Trident Series automatic defluxing and cleanliness testing systems.  Trident XLD is standard equipped with more valuable features and capabilities than any other batch format defluxing system.

Fluxes Removed






Wash Solution Recycler


Auto Chemical Dosing and Mixing


SPC Barcode Scanning


Cleanliness Testing


Cleaning Technology:

Trident XLD is equipped with the award-winning Focus Wash technology which is highly effective in high density, low profile defluxing applications.  A powerful multi-impeller stainless steel pump delivers precisely controlled fluid to twenty rotating stainless steel spray nozzles.  The nozzles are designed to reduce the fluid droplet size for improved under-component penetration.

To reduce the risk of shadowing, Trident XLD is uniquely equipped with an oscillating board rack which gently moves the rack nineteen millimeters forward and rearward during the cleaning cycle.

Trident XLD may be operated with water only or may be used with defluxing chemistries.  Trident XLD is equipped with a built-in closed-loop wash solution recirculation system.  Defluxing chemistries are automatically dosed, mixed, and reused, lowering the volume of effluent and reducing the equipment’s operating costs.  Programmable maintenance reminders will alert the operator to predetermined chemical maintenance needs.

Trident XLD is equipped with an automatic chemical management system that automatically doses and mixes defluxing chemicals at the turn of a keyed switch.   Users may store their concentrated defluxing chemical in Trident XLD’s built-in level monitored concentrated chemical storage tank.  With Trident XLD’s built-in chemical management system, there is no need for manual measuring, mixing, or handling.

Real Time Cleanliness Testing:

Trident XLD is equipped with an onboard cleanliness testing system which allows a user to program a desired cleanliness level.  Trident XLD’s powerful control system will constantly monitor the real time cleanliness of the assemblies and automatically modify the cleaning cycle accordingly.  This assures that cleanliness levels will be consistent batch after batch.  Cleanliness results will appear on the control panel and in the SPC logs after each batch.

Drying Technology:

Trident XLD is equipped with the most powerful drying system in its class.  Trident XLD’s built-in drying system utilizes both forced hot air convection and radiant drying technologies to produce thoroughly dry assemblies in impressively short cycle times.

Control Technology:

Unlike other machines which utilize proprietary controllers, Trident XLD is controlled by a Windows-based PC computer.  The powerful computer communicates with Trident LD’s hardware with a single USB cable, eliminating the need for proprietary PC expansion boards.

Trident XLD is equipped with the largest user interface in the industry.  The 16” (406mm) touchscreen interface provides a large, clear, and organized view of all process data in real time.  Trident XLD’s resistive touchscreen technology allows users to wear ESD gloves, finger cots, etc.

Users may program and store unlimited program recipes with completely configurable recipe names (alpha/numeric/spaces) for easy identification.  Multiple level password protection prevents unauthorized changes to recipes or machine settings.

Three control panel mounted pressure gauges display the pressure status of the incoming water line, spray manifold, and pre-drain filter. Concentrated chemical and wash solution holding tanks levels are displayed on the level gauges. Built-in low level float switches prevent operation if fluid levels to too low.

Statistical Process Control (SPC):

Trident XLD automatically captures all relevant process data including cleanliness testing results.  SPC data may be viewed on the display screen, exported in an XML (Excel) file format, or printed as a report and sent wirelessly to a network printer.

Trident XLD may be equipped with the powerful aSPC software.  aSPC software provides barcode scanning capabilities that allow individual assembly serial numbers to be scanned (or manually entered) as  assemblies are being loaded into the machine.  All SPC data is stored in the SQL data base.  Advanced search functions allow users to access specific batch reports by searching for specific assembly serial numbers, date ranges, pass/fail status, or operator names.

Rugged Construction:

Like all Trident models, Trident XLD is equipped with a rugged temperature and chemical safe stainless steel plumbing system.  Trident XLD’s stainless steel plumbing, process chamber, pumps, tanks, etc ensure many years of leak-free operation.

Fastest Cycle Times Available:

Trident XLD is among the fastest batch-format defluxing systems available, capable of cleaning, testing, and drying full loads of assemblies in thirty minutes.

Green Technology:

The Trident XLD is completely zero discharge. Even though the Trident XLD is capable of removing all flux types, including Rosin, No-Clean, and Water Soluble, it operates without the need for a drain connection. Both wash solution and rinse water are fully closed-loop. No drain connection eliminates the requirement for a discharge permit and the associated liability.

Aqueous Technologies' Trident Series

Tridents are available in three discharge configurations (full discharge, low discharge, and zero discharge). Additionally, Tridents are acailable in four throughput configurations, single chamber, two chambers (Trident Duo), three chambers (Trident Trio), and four chambers (Trident Quad).
