BTU Wins Third Consecutive Award for New Aqua Scrub Flux Management Technology

Apr 25, 2019

BTU International, Inc., a leading supplier of advanced thermal processing equipment for the electronics manufacturing and alternative energy markets, announces that it was awarded a 2019 EM Asia Innovation Award in the category of Soldering Systems – Auxiliary for its new Aqua Scrub flux management technology. The award was presented to the company during an April 25, 2019, ceremony at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition & Convention Center during NEPCON China.

“We are certainly thrilled to have Aqua Scrub so widely recognized by the industry,” said Bob Bouchard, corporate marketing manager for BTU. “It’s the next progression of our journey in enabling our customers’ success by ever-reducing the oven’s cost of ownership.”

Aqua Scrub technology is BTU’s next-generation solder reflow flux management system. The energy efficient, patent-pending design uses an aqueous-based scrubber technology compatible with most known paste and flux types. The flux and solution are automatically contained and packaged for disposal.

The Aqua Scrub has a very attractive cost of ownership and is designed to decrease operational cost by 4X over traditional condensation systems. Reduction in cost can be attributed to reduced downtime, labor and disposal costs.

Established in 2006, the EM Asia Innovation Awards program strives to recognize and celebrate excellence in the Asian electronics industry, inspiring companies to achieve the highest standards and push the industry forward.

BTU International, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Amtech Group (Nasdaq: ASYS), is a global supplier and technology leader of advanced thermal processing equipment in the electronics manufacturing market. BTU’s high-performance reflow ovens are used in the production of SMT printed circuit board assemblies and in semiconductor packaging processes. BTU also specializes in precision controlled, high-temperature belt furnaces for a wide range of custom applications, such as brazing, direct bond copper (DBC), diffusion, sintering and advanced solar cell processing. BTU has operations in North Billerica, Massachusetts, and Shanghai, China, with direct sales and service in the U.S.A., Asia and Europe. Information about BTU International is available at
