A panel of industry experts will review cleaning in the era of no-clean electronic assembly, from evolution of cleaning technologies since the Clean Air Act in 1990 started the ban on ozone-depleting solvents, to the various aqueous, semi-aqueous and modern-day vapor phase replacement cleaners available today. The chemical and mechanical dynamics of cleaning circuit card assemblies (CCAs) will be explored in today's ever-changing electronics manufacturing arena, with worker-friendly, environmentally responsible cleaning options.
The hierarchy of cleaning (W.A.T.C.H.), and the elements of time, temperature, concentration and agitation are reviewed as the basic building blocks of cleaning. Experts on both the equipment and chemical side of electronics cleaning, along with industry users who have successfully instituted aqueous batch and in-line processes for all SMT assembly cleaning, including complete flux removal beneath extremely low stand-off, surface mounted components will be available for discussions.
