HydroJet® Inline Cleaner
Austin American Technology’s HydroJet® inline cleaning system was the first inline cleaner introducing the current standard of coherent jet technology to clean under tightly spaced components. AAT further improved this technology by developing Progressive Energy Dynamics (PED), which is only available on Austin American Inline Cleaners.
Austin American’s HydroJet® Cleaner is equipped with a patented displacement drying system which minimizes energy consumption and ionic residues left on boards and provides the fastest drying performance available.
The HydroJet® Inline Cleaner comes standard with an integrated Closed Loop System which over its life will save thousands of gallons of water and kilowatts of power, which translates into a quick payback on this machine.
The HydroJet® inline system is constructed of high-density polypropylene for excellent chemical compatibility and long life. It has a non-corroding, rigid metal chassis, unibody construction, a detachable load section, and hinged windows at each chamber for easy access. The conveyor employs an automatic tension system and torque limitation to protect the drive motor in both forward and reverse modes.
High Pressure Wash
The recirculated wash section features Progressive Energy Dynamics (PED) which optimizes impingement force and flow without operation at unnecessarily high pressures. A chemical injection system automatically adds and maintains chemical concentration. The Chemical Isolation section comes standard with air jet isolation and is upgradable to include wet isolation and additional air jet isolation. This can dramatically reduce the amount of wash chemistry used, thus significantly reducing operating costs.
Power Rinse and Final Rinse
Heated and recirculated water utilizing Progressive Energy Dynamics (PED) is directed on the PCB during the power rinse. The final rinse is heated and closed loop. And comes standard with a conductivity monitoring system with programmable alarms.
Patented Displacement Drying
Austin American Technology’s patented Jet Manifold drying system removes water from the PCB without using an independent heater, eliminating the tendency to “bake” unwanted ionic contamination on the assembly. The HydroJet™ uses a HEPA filter to minimize particulate contaminate of sensitive electronics.
