Tips and Tricks for Successfully Cleaning of Circuit Assemblies provides in-depth best-practice advise for successful removal of flux and other assembly related residues. Covered topics include: 

  • An historical look back at cleaning

  • The reason for cleaning

  • Reasons for cleaning no-clean flux residues

  • Conventional cleaning technologies

  • Estimating throughput capabilities on batch and inline cleaning systems

  • Do's and don'ts of cleaning circuit assemblies

  • How to choose a cleaning chemical (if needed)

  • How to determine the assemblies are clean during the cleaning process

  • How to determine the assemblies are clean after the cleaning process

  • Environmental mitigation techniques

  • Calculating the per-assembly cost of cleaning

  • Keeping your cleaning machine in top-working order

This webinar is presented free of charge. All webinar attendees will receive a free copy of "Reasons for Cleaning", a selection of short articles about:
- Why we clean
- How we clean
- How clean is clean enough


Recorded Webinars 

Cleanliness Quantification Techniques
- How Clean is Clean Enough?

There is a direct relationship between cleanliness and reliability. Most contamination related product failures could have been predicted by cleanliness testing and thereby avoided. With industry standards changing, various cleanliness testing methods are being considered.   

This webinar will present information on several post-reflow circuit assembly cleanliness quantification methods including:

  - Bulk Extraction ROSE Testing
  - Localized Extraction ROSE Testing
 - Ion Chromatography
  - Surface Insulation Resistance (SIR)
  - Presence of Flux (Chemical Reaction) Testing
  - Visual Testing
  - Other Cleanliness Testing Methods
