Thanks for the reply Stephen. The time factor sounds logical for moisture invasion during cleaning, probably why there's no articles showing concern about the process. I did try experimenting with some samples and believe it or not could not dupli

You have a lot to think about! What does the flux manufacturer recommend as far as specifics like water temp or pressure? Do they recommend high temp di-water a detergent or saponifier? Do you currently have a cleaning machine, batch cleaner or inl

I can't seem to locate any information/concerns about moisture entrapment in IC packages on the promary side in a double sided SMT assembly using water soluable solder paste when soldering the second side. A typical process would assemble/reflow/cle

Hello, I am planning to use a water wash flux. As this is new to me, would you guys share what should I be aware of? I know cleaning PCBs itself presents issues. If you can share your experience so I can prepare better, it would be great.

The easiest way to prove out the absorbtion theory is to weigh the parts before wash, after wash, and after baking. You probably want to do this with the bare parts in isolation as the fab will pick up considerable moisture. Differences in weight s

Hi Bill, You should try pre-baking any such old devices prior to using on SMT Reflow. Refering to MSL-type3 guidelines could help in your case.

It takes time for the moisture to penetrate into the body. I think the 5 years of ambient would be more the culprit than washing the boards. Especially since you are baking them after wash. Get a few of the ICs and put them loose on a board and put
