Never used an inert atmosphere with this paste but always had great success with it. It leaves a pretty fair amount of residue but that was its only downside if you could call it that. do you need to run inert?

If people use an inert gas, they use nitrogen for mass soldering. Inert gases get progressively more expensive as you move down the periodic table. Many times no-clean flux is less active than other flux types. So, people use an inert gas to lower

Could very well be your nitrogen diffusers are blocked. These have to be cleaned on a regular basis as well.Cleaning frequency for the diffusers is flux dependent as well as other factors but could be as little as one month of operation. Once the dif

Can anyone tell me any posible ways to help cut down on solder dross in an inert environment wave???? Any suggestions would be helpful. It depends on how the environment is inerted. Is it a hood, tunnel, or boundary (Electrovert Contour) system?

We've had a customer request that we check the PPM level of oxygen at our wave solder's inerters. I'm looking on the web, and there seems to be a huge variety of these instruments. Can anyone make a recommendation on one that is working for you? T

At reflow an inert atmosphere is used to mitigate the occurance of oxidation, to me the decision weather to move from an inert atmosphere is based on several things ; PCB surface finish - are you using a HASL finish, OSP or another surface finish and

Hi, This would be a very exciting idea. Nitrogen is an inert gas, so this is why it's used, however Hydrogen mixed with oxygen in normal air is highly explosive, so it would be one of the worst gasses to use in a reflow oven I would think. Remember
