Aqueous Technologies to Showcase Its Range of Cleaning and Cleanliness Testing Systems at the IPC APEX EXPO

Jan 15, 2013

 Aqueous Technologies will exhibit in booth #3127 at the upcoming IPC APEX EXPO, scheduled to take place February 19-21, 2013 at the San Diego Convention Center in California.

The Trident XLD is the industry’s environmentally responsible fully automated defluxing and cleanliness testing system.  The Trident XLD is capable of removing all flux types including no-clean, rosin and water soluble. The Trident XLD 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 is exceptionally fast, with an average total cycle time of less than 30 minutes. 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.   

The Trident Duo High-Yield Automatic Defluxing and Cleanliness Testing System provides a cost-effective alternative to inline defluxing systems. Operating on a fraction of the power, water, and chemicals of a traditional inline cleaning system, Trident DUO provides high throughput at a very low operational cost.

The Trident Duo is equipped with two autonomous defluxing chambers. Each chamber is controlled by a dedicated computer controller and may be operated with different defluxing chemistries for maximum flexibility. Additionally, each defluxing chamber is equipped with independent cleanliness testing capabilities and recallable SPC data records. Trident Duo is capable of high throughput levels and is equipped with built-in cleanliness testing technology for clean assemblies every time.

The EcoCycler Closed-Loop Rinse Water Recycler provides capture, filtration, re-deionization, and reuse of rinse water from Aqueous Technologies Trident-LD or other batch-format aqueous defluxing systems.

The EcoCycler rinse water recycler is constructed with durable, corrosion-resistant welded polypropylene. A built-in stainless steel, high performance recirculation / filtration pump directs waste rinse water through particulate filters and carbon and resin media tanks. A user may obtain carbon and resin media tanks directly from Aqueous Technologies or through a media vendor of their choice.

The EcoCycler rinse water recycler is equipped with both low and high level float switches which allow for automatic water replenishment and protection against run-dry operation. Dual pressure gauges monitor the condition of the filtration. A built-in digital resistivity meter provides real-time monitoring and display of the actual cleanliness of the water and is equipped with a user-settable alarm which indicates the need to change the filters.

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 StencilWasher-CLR Zero Discharge Ultrasonic Stencil Cleaning System is designed to remove all solder paste types including no-clean, rosin, and water soluble as well as all uncured SMT adhesives. StencilWasher-CLR is equipped with a filtered and recirculated wash system and a fully closed-loop rinse system. All rinse water is captured, filtered, re-deionized, and reused. There is no connection to drain.

StencilWasher-CLR comes standard-equipped with all of the features required for thorough wash, rinse, dry, filtration, and closed-loop functions, eliminating the need to purchase costly optional items.
