Replacement for nitrogen in the reflow oven

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

Alternative to nitrogen atmosphere cabinet for storage of parts

Hi SMTnet. I have a series of sensitive parts and solder preforms which degrade when exposed to oxygen and moisture. It seems the standard way of protecting these components is to use a nitrogen purged cabinet as storage. This seems to use a lot of

Is there a difference between the Nitrogen cabinet vs Dry cabinet ? How does this helps in creating safe environment for MSD storage. I felt puzzled when my customer rejected me coz' I'm using the Nitrogen cabinet instead of dry cabinet. Except for t

The customer said " The Nitrogen PPM is questionable". LIke what I said, as long as I have met the 10% RH, it should be OK, rite ? thx

Rite. Moisture, not N2, in the air is the issue.

Truthfully, there are pro's and con's for both technologies. (put cost of ownership aside for one moment) Nitrogen won't dry humidified components as rapidly as a desiccant dry box. I'm talking about a self regenerating dry box that uses molecular s

On an assembly reflowed in air saw the same thing: 0201's with a grainular solder joint, but 0402's and above with perfectly formed joints. Reflow profile all within acceptable tolerances. Reflowing in nitrogen solves this problem, but increases t

We are increasingly being asked to store components for longer and longer periods which we know through experience leads to reduction or total loss of solderability of the parts. 1) What is the industry accepted shelf life of tin/lead plated compone
