Many shops require levels for typical component packages on FR-4 or a like substrate to be 2, 9, 15, 1 and 10 mg/in2 for fluoride, chloride, bromide, nitrate, and sulfate respectively. These levels can change for Medical or Automotive.

We believe that it's perfectly resonable for you to define the cleanliness that you require. We recommend that you leave it at that and not define the process or materials that your supplier use in meeting that cleanliness level. Start with a dirty

Rocko: While you're rooting around with the cleaner to better understand the issues with your water supply, monitor the heaters of your cleaner. We've had instances were the heater control has created "white haze" problems. Are you sure the residue

No, put a thermocouple on the heater and monitor the temperature during cleaning.

I'm looking for test labs in Taiwan that are capable of performing ionic contamination testing on small to medium sized SMT boards. I'm interested in both ion chromatography and ROSE test methodologies. Is anyone aware of any labs performing contami

Hi All, As a result of equipment damage I have a problem with a cleanliness of printed circuit assemblies. One whole production batch was polluted by ionic residues because a large amount of hard water had been penetrated in the water-supply system

Hi davef, Thanks for the suggestion. I have inspected the heaters but I think they are OK (no visible coating, deposits, etc.). Unfortunately, I'm not sure that the residues are ionic. It was just preliminary report of the person responsible for the

You can determine empirically what will work. * Use ion chromatography [IPC-TM-650 2.3.28] to evaluate the residues and determine if the residues must be removed. * Use energy dispersive spectroscopy for the elemental analysis or chemical characteriz
