The Trident Zero is the industry's most environmentally responsible fully automated defluxing and cleanliness testing system. Unlike other closed-loop defluxing systems, the Trident Zero is capable of removing all flux types including no-clean, rosin and water soluble.The Trident Zero also is capable of operating with a variety of environmentally safe defluxing chemistries frequently required for specific types of flux removal. Trident Zero 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 Zero’s average total cycle time is less than 30 minutes, making it the fastest fully automatic defluxing system available. 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.
