The Trident ZDO High-Yield Cleaning System provides fully automatic wash, rinse, cleanliness verification, and dry functions in a higher throughput / flexibility environment. The Trident ZDO High-Yield Cleaning System removes any flux from any alloy and does so without sending a single from of fluid to the drain.

Equipped with an asymmetrical fan-jet spray system in each process chamber, 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. The Each Trident ZDO process chamber is pre-plumbed to accept an upper board rack assembly for even higher throughput.
Trident ZDO High-Yield Cleaning System includes a closed loop (zero discharge) wash solution section and an zero-discharge rinse section.
