Hello all, I was just wondering if solder pot temperature affects the quality or the life of the solder joints? For example we run 100Sn at 275C. If I bump it up to 300C, what is that going to change?

It makes sense. With temperature viscosity will change, and more liquidus material will flow better.

I'd expect pot temperature to affect components and bare board performance before affecting the solder connection

No matter in selective soldering or wave soldering process, higher pot temperature and longer wetting time can increase IMC thickness and joint strength(reliability), but as Daivf said, you need to care if the DIP component and bare PCB was damaged b

I was actually thinking about the wave soldering machine.

Maybe increased barrel fill? Raising pot temps slightly seems to increase barrel fill at selective solder, something we battle with.

Selective Soldering Frames can pull large amounts of heat from the solder wave at the point of contact, effectively lowering the temperature of the solder at the solder joint. You should confirm the temperature of the solder joints by running a therm

Thank you all for the feedback. DaveF, thank you for the articles.

Is this for a Selective Solder? If so what size nozzle do you run. I run at 315 C most of the time. You can speed up your process time and still achieve good solder fill.

Dave, what do you mean affect the board? Any literature on the subject here in the forum or any at all?
