KYZEN is pleased to announce that Debbie Carboni will present at the Central Texas Electronics Association Electronics (CTEA) Design, Manufacturing & Test Symposium, scheduled to take place Tuesday, May 12, 2015 in Austin, Texas. Carboni will present the paper entitled, “New Technology Waterless Cleaning Approach for High Density Assemblies and Power Electronics.”

Solvent cleaning has a long history of use for cleaning electronic hardware, however largely due to environmental issues this approach fell out of favor in the 1990’s. The rapid evolution of no-clean and lead-free fluxes further entrenched aqueous cleaning as the cleaning technology of choice which largely continues to this day. However, the relentless advancement of smaller form factors and higher performance requirements presents situations where a waterless process would provide technical benefits.

To address these limitations, new solvent cleaning agents and processes have been designed to clean highly dense assemblies and power electronics. This research study will evaluate the cleaning and electrical performance using the IPC B-52 Test Vehicle. Lead-free no-clean solder paste will be used to join the components to the test vehicle. Ion Chromatography and SIR values will be reported.

Carboni joined KYZEN in 2007 as a Mid-Atlantic Regional Manager. A 15-year veteran of the precision cleaning industry, her primary expertise is in the cleaning sector of the electronics industry. Recognizing Carboni’s talents and expertise, KYZEN soon named her North American Sales Manager for its Electronics Division. Carboni serves as an active member of the SMTA Philadelphia Chapter. She actively contributes as an author of technical papers that focus on precision cleaning and wave soldering and presents at various forums and workshops across North America. Carboni brings a unique understanding of cleaning equipment and processes, making her a valuable resource for addressing emerging cleaning challenges.
