Emil Otto presents nozzle cleaners for diverse selective soldering systems at SMT
German flux manufacturer Emil Otto GmbH is further expanding its soldering aids product portfolio. Aside from the recently launched covering oil EO-COVERFLUID TESU, additional nozzle cleaners for selective soldering systems will now also be available.
“For a long time already, Emil Otto has offered products for cleaning solder nozzles. However, up to now, we have not actively launched these on the market. This is now changing due to the many requests we have received from customers and equipment manufacturers,” as Markus Geßner, Marketing and Sales Manager at Emil Otto GmbH explains. With the development of additional cleaning agents at the request of the customers, the importance of this product group has changed for the company. At the SMT 2018, Emil Otto will for the first time present the entire solder aid portfolio, which aside from the EO-COVERFLUID TESU comprises diverse nozzle cleaners and the Tip-Cleaner for cleaning and activating soldering iron tips.
In addition to the flux paste NC-260/RF EO “Nozzle Clean”, the cleaning agents EO-NCF-001 and EO-NCF-003 were developed. EO-NCF-001 is a special cleaning liquid for automatic nozzle cleaning, while EO-NCF-1003 was designed for general nozzle cleaning. All three agents achieve very good cleaning effects in their respective application form. The cleaning effect for scaling and slag deposits on uncoated soldering nozzles of selective soldering systems is also very good.
The flux paste NC-260/RF EO is applied with a syringe to ensure precise metering. The cleaning liquids EO-NCF-001 and EO-NCF-003, on the other hand, are available in packaging units of 100 ml, 250 ml, 500 ml or 1 l. The cleaning media will not segregate during storage. In addition, NC-260/RF “Nozzle Clean” and the cleaning agent EO-NCF-1003 are 100% VOC free.
Emil Otto will present the new products at the SMT 2018, in Hall 4A, Stand 144.
