RANCHO CUCAMONGA, CA — Aqueous Technologies Corp., North America’s largest provider of batch defluxing systems, announces that Accurex Solutions Pvt. Ltd. of Bangalore, India has purchased its Trident III automatic defluxing and cleanliness testing system. The sale was made by Aqueous Technologies’ Sales Manager Kevin Buckner during the recently held IPC APEX Expo in Las Vegas (April 6-8, 2010). The Trident Series represents the next generation of lead-free compatible, fully automatic post-reflow defluxing systems.

Accurex provides complete engineering services that ensure that both system hardware and software are capable of performing all testing functions required by customer specifications and test requirements documents. The Trident III will help Accurex evaluate its customers’ test requirements and develop efficient test strategies.

Trident III is capable of removing all flux residues including rosin, no-clean and water soluble. Both lead and lead-free flux residues may be removed using the system, and it is equipped with an automatic chemical injection system that automatically adds a programmable volume of defluxing chemical to the wash water.

Trident III is equipped with a closed-loop wash solution recycling system. Wash solution is heated automatically and sprayed onto the assemblies. At the end of the wash cycle, the wash solution is directed back to the holding tank for subsequent reuse. Also equipped with a real-time cleanliness tester, rinse water is then sprayed onto the assemblies until the desired cleanliness level is achieved. All rinse water is directed through the pre-drain filtration system and then sent to drain. Assemblies are dried via the onboard convection and radiant forced air drying system.

Trident III is equipped with a host of standard features including programmable maintenance reminders, remote SPC viewing, SPC data USB export and a built-in chemical management system. An optional zero-discharge evaporation system eliminates connection to a drain line.

The automatic defluxing system is reportedly the fastest batch-format defluxing system available. Trident’s specific throughput rate is determined by board size and cleanliness setting. The Trident III is capable of defluxing and cleanliness testing up to 200 4 x 6" (101 x 152 mm) boards and up to 28 18 x 20" (457 x 508 mm) boards per hour.
