Trident ZDO provides fully automatic wash, rinse, cleanliness verification, and dry functions and is capable of removing any flux from any alloy without sending a single drop of fluid to the drain. Equipped with an asymmetrical fan-jet spray system, Trident ZDO's twin stainless steel counter rotating spray bars feature twenty stainless steel fan-jet nozzles project precision-diffused wash solution and rinse water onto a shadow-mitigating oscillating board rack. This spray system was implemented to deliver controlled fluid energy underneath fine-pitch components. Trident ZDO is pre-plumbed to accept an optional upper board rack assembly for even higher throughput.

Trident ZDO includes a closed loop (zero discharge) wash solution section and a zero-discharge rinse section.
