ZESTRON, the globally leading provider of high precision cleaning products, services and training solutions for the electronics manufacturing industry, is pleased to announce that Naveen Ravindran, M.S.Chem.Eng., Application Engineer, ZESTRON, is a featured presenter at the 2013 SMTA LA/Orange County Tech Forum and Expo.  Mr. Ravindran will present “Removal of OA Flux Residues - A Comparative Case Study” on November 5th.

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. This study was conducted to primarily assess the cleaning performance of the newly developed cleaning technology for operations at low temperatures and cleaning agent concentrations as compared to pure DI-water. 

The DOE included a test board populated with the most challenging component geometries commonly seen in the industry. Cleanliness was assessed visually as well as via Ion Chromatography. Furthermore, the overall energy consumption at different process settings was measured to validate the potential cost savings of process operations at lower temperatures. The study has also been supplemented with empirical data gathered through customer case studies.

The 2013 SMTA LA/Orange County Tech Forum and Expo is scheduled for November 5th from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM at The Grand Event Center, Long Beach, California.  For more information and to register for this free event, please visit SMTA LA/Orange County.
