Aqueous Technologies Corp., North America’s largest provider of batch defluxing systems, announces the upcoming 30th anniversary of the Zero-Ion Ionic Contamination (cleanliness) Tester. Originally designed in 1982, the Zero-Ion has remained in continuous production. Aqueous Technologies purchased Zero-Systems, the original manufacturer of the Zero-Ion in 1994. In 2009, Aqueous Technologies released the Zero-Ion g3, the latest generation cleanliness testing system.
To celebrate the Zero-Ion’s 30th anniversary, Aqueous Technologies is offering Zero-Ion systems at a special price in the online store, which is located at http://store.aqueoustech.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=ZI.
The Zero-Ion is designed to test electronics assemblies for ionic contamination. It automatically removes and detects contamination on an electrical assembly or bare board and provides quantitative contamination measurements. The cleanliness tester uses a dynamic technology that provides automatic regeneration of the machine’s test solution, maintaining a high degree of test solution sensitivity. The Zero-Ion meets the requirements of military and commercial cleanliness testing standards including MIL 2000A, IPC test method 001, MIL-C-28809, MIL-P-55110 and IPC TM650-2.3.26.
The Zero-Ion has been reviewed by the U.S. Naval Air Weapons Center and determined to be the most sensitive ionic contamination tester available. Additionally, it has been determined to be 3.7 times more sensitive than the manual resistivity of solvent extract (R.O.S.E.) test. The Zero-Ion performs cleanliness tests automatically and features a Windows PC-based control platform with a 20" LCD interface.
