Electrovert Aqua Storm 100 Inline Cleaning System
The Electrovert Aquastorm 100 is a versatile, high-performance cleaning system designed to optimize the PCB cleaning process. The Aquastorm 100, with its setup design, is ideally suited to RMA and no-clean flux applications that require chemistry, as well as the removal of water-soluble organic acid flux.
Wash Cycle 1
Wash Cycle 2
Wash Cycle 3
Functional sections of a cleaner are designed to accomplish different tasks in removing contamination. Some sections maximize flooding, while others maximize impact force for cleaning tight spaces. The Aquastorm uses a proprietary pump and nozzle technology throughout the system to optimize performance. The Aquastorm’s appropriately sized modules and strategic manifold placement increase throughput while ensuring the thorough removal of contaminants. The Aquastorm features perforated rails, curtain containment, and a cabinet designed to manage wash solution within the system for maximum conservation of costly chemistries. The wet chemical isolation module is powered by the recirculating rinse pump to ensure optimal prerinsing and to facilitate closed-loop recycling of the rinse section. Even the exhaust is separated between the wash and rinse modules to minimize chemical migration through the system.
Torrid Dry Section
The importance of cleaning electronic assemblies increases dramatically with soldering. Higher temperatures are required in soldering, and wetting is much more difficult. To improve 'wettability', the flux compositions may require higher activation. High-solid flux formulations commonly leave more undesirable residue and require cleaning. A successful cleaning system must be able to handle the harsh demands of the process. The Aquastorm's unique technologies, such as the patented Hurricane Jet™ and JIC nozzles, provide unmatched impact force to penetrate under and around components and clean even the most challenging flux residues.
Advanced User Interface
The Aquastorm 100 is configured with a Windows®-based operating system that features process monitoring, data logging, and product traceability via the system software. The system is easily networked for downloading recipes and remote access to operating data. Quick and easy viewing of system pressures, water levels, pump and blower operation, temperature, and fill/drain operation, data logging, traceability, and barcode capability.
KYZEN Cleaning Chemistry for Reliability
Hi -Tech Products are manufactured and cleaned to the highest of standards to ensure reliability and dependable quality. That is why we use KYZEN cleaning chemistries in each process step that will affect the finished product.
Why clean? Risk avoidance.
Our customers’ products often have high frequency, high impedance and/or high voltage. When products have a life cycle demand of 10+ years, cleaning is the best way to ensure the product meets the demand. Additionally, cleaning improves conformal coating and allow products to function repeatedly in a harsh environment. When products operate in harsh environments, electrochemical migration and unintended power failures, and intermittent connections issue risks increase. Continuously improving our cleaning process reduces those risks.
Working with the right company ensures the cleaning fluid can:
- Penetrate underneath the components (especially low stand-off devices
- Wet the flux dam and dissolve the flux
- Carry off the contamination and the chemistry every time on every component
Maintaining and/or improving our cleaning processes requires a cleaning fluid that can clean the flux residue, is easy to use, and be repeatable in its cleaning and rinsing performance. A balanced cleaning fluid makes for process stability, like AQUANOX A4626.
With the success in our post reflow cleaning, we also implement KYZEN in other cleaning processes. These products helped us make advancements in our stencil cleaning as well as our manual cleaning operation. Partnering with KYZEN helps support our customers and provide quality above others and implement continuous improvements as technology advances.
