HALL 7 • STAND 321

When PCBAs are cleaned a lot of factors influence the cleaning result. There are not only the residues which have been cleaned from the PCBAs but also process-dependent influences like evaporation or transportation of cleaner into the rinsing stage. To achieve permanent good cleaning results, continuous monitoring of the cleaning bath is recommended. For this purpose, manual and automatic methods exist. Both methods are only fully effective with fresh cleaning baths. Manual concentration measurement method based on the phase separation procedure e.g. the ZESTRON Bath Analyzer works very reliably and accurately independently of contamination.

Automatic techniques, such as the ZESTRON EYE. Utilizing that system, both cleaner concentration and temperature is measured permanently and in real-time. The additional automatic method is the ZESTRON EYE CM, a product new to the market, a fully automatic stand alone module, performing both automatic concentration measurement and automatic dosage.
