High Temperature Open-Loop Semi-Aqueous Batch Electronics Cleaning Systems

The AquaTherm™ 9100, from Austin American Technology, introduces a new era to batch cleaning.

Forget the limitations of the past and experience a batch system that offers multiple cleaning technologies for capability previously unachieved in a compact footprint. In addition to aqueous and aqueous chemistry-based cleaning, the innovative AquaTherm™ supports process temperature ranges from ambient to 200°F and adds the power of steam. When selected, the onboard steam generator produces hot water vapor to penetrate and soften tough, baked-on flux and paste residue so the standard wash cycle can effectively complete the cleaning process. An intuitive user interface allows the operator to select the type and duration of wash, number of rinse cycles, and duration of the forced-air dry cycle.

Ideal for printed circuit boards, semiconductors, subassemblies and process tooling, the AquaTherm™ brings flexible, unparalleled cleaning performance to the batch process.

Additionally the AquaTherm™ 9100 features a built-in chemistry metering pump, allowing the system to utilize a wide range of modern cleaning agents. With supplemental high temperature capability the system is capable to reduce chemical consumption while maintaining high product cleanliness and throughput.





High Temperature Wash & Rinse Cycle.

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.

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.

Chemical Dispensing System.

This features a chemical dispensing 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™ 9100 systems. Allowing the system to fill the integrated wash holding tank with the required chemical concentration.
