ZESTRON’s Naveen Ravindran, Application Engineer, will present “Fluid Flow Mechanics - Key to Low Standoff Cleaning” at the SMTA Empire Chapter Technical Session and Vendor Show held at the Radisson Hotel Rochester Airport, 175 Jefferson Road, Rochester, NY, on Thursday, November 10th, 2011. Show hours are from 10 am until 6 pm.
More than five years ago, ZESTRON first discussed cleaning underneath 4 MIL standoff components. With the emergence of lead-free solder and flux as well as a miniaturization of components and an increase in board densities, the latest challenges include components with less than 1 MIL gaps.
This study was designed to specifically investigate the impact of mechanical vs. chemical energy during the removal of contamination under 1-2 MIL standoff components. To validate the results obtained, extensive experiments were conducted, including actual user case studies, specifically prepared test assemblies, iterative experimentation, as well as new mechanical innovations that might help customers in the future. These included but were not limited to various flow patterns and industry leading cleaning agents. As a result, the authors also included experimental data that addressed fluid flow mechanics as well as temperature and concentration related effects.
During the show, ZESTRON will also feature its peripheral product lines, process solutions, services as well as training and workshop opportunities in addition to the company’s complete portfolio of broad spectrum cleaning chemistries for the electronics manufacturing industry.
