Trident XLD - Automatic Defluxing and Cleanliness Testing Systems

Aqueous Technologies Corp., North America’s largest provider of batch defluxing systems, announces that it has been awarded a Global Technology Award in the category of Cleaning Equipment for its Trident XLD. The award was presented to the company during a Tuesday, November 15, 2011 ceremony that took place at the New Munich Trade Fair Centre in Munich, Germany during Productronica 2011.

The Trident XLD is the industry’s most environmentally responsible fully automated defluxing and cleanliness testing system. Unlike other closed-loop defluxing systems, the XLD is capable of removing all flux types including no-clean, rosin and water soluble. The Trident XLD also is capable of operating with a variety of environmentally safe defluxing chemistries frequently required for specific types of flux removal. The Trident XLD provides automatic cleaning, cleanliness testing, drying, chemical dosing, complete assembly specific SPC via bar-code scanning, and operates without sending any water to the drain.

The Trident XLD’s average total cycle time is less than 30 minutes, making it the fastest fully automatic defluxing system available. The system can clean one month’s worth of production while consuming less than ten gallons (38 liters) of water, all of which is lost to normal evaporation.   

Premiering in 2005, the Global Technology Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts.


Founded in 1992 and headquartered in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, Aqueous Technologies Corporation is North America's leading manufacturer of aqueous cleaning systems. Aqueous Technologies manufactures batch-format aqueous cleaning/defluxing systems. Aqueous Technologies also manufactures ultrasonic stencil cleaning systems, PCB and stencil cleaning chemistries and the Zero-Ion ionic contamination (cleanliness) tester. Aqueous Technologies’ products have won more than 40 industry awards.
