High Temperature Wash & Rinse Cycle. (return)
As the AquaTherm™'s nomenclature suggests, the system is designed from the ground up for high temperature operation, with a wash and rinse operating temperature of 199F (93C). This allows for cleaning under lower stand-off components. As well as allows the system to fully utilize semi-aqueous based chemistires allowing the system to operate at lower chemical concentrations (on average between 2 - 4%).

Open Loop Wash Operation. (return)
The wash fluid is sent to facility drain after the wash cycle is completed. Paired with high temperature wash operation the system is capable of running a lean chemical concentration in order to reduce operating costs. A concentration of 2 - 4% is possible, while maintaining complete assembly de-fluxing.

Closed Loop Wash Operation. (return)
The wash fluid is sent to an internal wash reservoir after the wash cycle is complete. Allowing the system to reuse the aqueous/semi-aqueous solvent.

HEPA Dry Air Filtration (return)
In order to reduce dust contamination and to maintain clean-room compliance, teh system is fitted with HEPA dry air filtration. Preventing air-borne particulates from contaminating cleaned components. This is especially applicable with optics and wide range of particulate sensitive components.

IAC (Ionic Absorption Column) Ready. (return)
The AquaTherm™ 9600 is designed for closed loop water-only operation. In order to accomplish this, it is fitted with IAC plumbing, which allow the facility to fit an IAC tank directly into the machine. This will recycle the wash water by removing flux from the medium.

Chemical Dispensing System. (return)
This features a chemical dispansing pump, allowing for recipe independent chemical concentrations (0 - 30%). This means that the engineer can maintain process recipes with varying chemistry concentrations, allowing for a high degree of process configurability and flexibility.

Chemical Dispensing system is also optionally available on AquaTherm™ 9200 systems.
Allowing the system to fill the integrated wash holding tank with the required chemical concentration.

De-foamer Dispensing System. (return)
In water-only based cleaning applications foaming can be an issue. In order to address this without added cost nor operation reliance, the system can dispense de-foamer package during the rinse cycle to reduce foaming. As is the case with the Chemical Dispensing System, this is programmed on a per recipe basis.

Rinse-Aid Dispensing System. (return)
In order to address glass chips (i.e. CCD, CMOS, etc.) as well as various optics cleaning applications, this system provides for Rinse-Aid metering. This allows the AquaTherm™ to de-flux a circuit board during the primary wash cycle and clean the optics with a separate cycle. All of this is recipe dependent allowing for inclusion/exclusion on a per-recipe basis.

Heated Holding Tank. (return)
This feature goes hand-in-hand with closed loop wash operation. This feature includes an insulated stainless-steel holding tank with an immersion heater for temperature control. The system is additionally fitted with a recirculation pump, allowing the holding tank to continously mix the cleaning solvent.
