Just to be careful, confirm this with your equipment supplier. We'd expect you could use argon in place of nitrogen in your selective soldering machine. We figure argon costs about 6X nitrogen. We've seen argon generators on ebay for ~$1000.

I have a hermetic package with 1 atm of Helium (5% vol.) and Argon (95%) inside. We have detected the helium leaks at 5*e-8 ccatm/sec. My question is what is the leaking rate of argon. Can anybody provide any insight or information to calculate the r

Hello, I am currently in the process of purchasing a plasma chamber for the purpose of activating the surface of flex circuits so that they bond more readily. In addition I need to purchase a gas cylinder for the chamber, specifically one that is a

Thank you SteveO, I have also tried reflow 2nd time without any problem, but I also do not know the impact of long term reliability as our devices are most likely operated in the harsh environment. We are currently do soldering in Argon environment.

Dave's estimation is pretty conservative but there is a lot of equipment out there and a lot of people happy to make a sale.Implementing both mentioned processes it's difficult and time consuming .Even if you get good training from whoever sells you
