'Reinventing the Wheel’ in Fluid Dynamics

Most board assemblers strive to optimize their cleaning process to provide the best cleaning performance over a broad range of board assemblies. 

This paper presents the results from a designed experiment on fluid dynamics across multiple types of spray technologies and the overall impact to cleaning performance and process flexibility. The data collected and presented will capture the realization of cleaning electronics and compare technologies of today versus the past to show why certain spray technologies improve cleaning performance and improve process flexibility.
