 ZESTRON, the worldwide leader in high precision cleaning products and services for the electronics manufacturing industry, is pleased to announce that Naveen Ravindran, Application Engineer, ZESTRON America, will present “Comparative Cleaning Study to Showcase the Effective Removal of OA Flux Residues” at the Dallas SMTA Chapter Meeting on November 9th.

In the electronics manufacturing industry, pure DI-water processes are prevalent for removing water soluble (OA) flux residues.  However, recent industry developments as well as customer case studies have shown that these water only processes may no longer produce the required cleanliness levels and thereby guarantee the long-term reliability of assemblies.  Mr. Ravindran explores the restrictions of DI-water and provides a process solution that allows for an environmentally friendly and cost-effective cleaning process eliminating the need for high temperatures and concentrations while meeting the current cleanliness requirements.

Naveen Ravindran, M.S.Chem.Eng, is an active member of the Surface Mount Technology Association as well as the IPC.  He has contributed to several case studies performed in collaboration with major cleaning equipment manufacturers.  He was involved in the extensive technical paper series “Key to Low Standoff Cleaning” as well as the lead-free and eutectic screening series completed at ZESTRON’s Technical and Analytical Center.

The Dallas SMTA Chapter Meeting is scheduled for November 9th from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm at Dave & Busters, 8021 Walnut Hill Lane, Dallas, TX. For more information, please visit Dallas SMTA.

Headquartered in Manassas, Virginia, and operating in more than 35 countries, ZESTRON is the globally leading provider of high precision cleaning products, services and training solutions for the electronics manufacturing industry. With five worldwide technical centers and the largest team of chemical engineers in the industry, ZESTRON’s commitment to ensuring that its customers surpass even the most stringent cleaning requirements is without equal.
