Austin American Technology Mega ION for high-rel applications requiring ROSE testing

Jun 24, 2020

Austin American Technology (AAT) is pleased to offer the Mega ION® cleaning system designed for solvent based, high reliability applications requiring product cleanliness verification (IPC ROSE Testing). It is used for final clean prior to conformal coat, encapsulation or other sealing operations used to protect electronic modules.

Ionic testing is based on “ROSE”, allowing the system to quantify ionic contamination of the circuit board before or after cleaning. This allows the operator to clean and test the circuit boards within one system.

The Mega ION® is compatible with multiple solvents including but not limited to DI water, water alcohol mixtures, pure alcohol, evaporative hydrocarbons (like cyclohexane) commercial solvent blends not requiring a water rinse.

AAT’s unique regeneration system increases the MEGA ION® bath life by removing flux, finger soils and other manufacturing soils from the wash solution without heat or condensing coils. This provides a tremendous increase in bath life and reduces solvent waste. The integrated solvent regeneration typically maintains the solvent purity level at a higher standard than the solvent as received from the vendor.

The MEGA ION® system operates in a closed-loop environment with wash bath life maintained through the use of an integrated ionic exchange filter system. This provides a rapid economic payback based upon solvent and solvent disposal savings combined with less maintenance downtime and high production uptime.

AAT was founded in 1986, as a provider of SMT rework systems and process engineering testing services. In 1988, their focus shifted toward the high-end electronics cleaning segment with the introduction of the world’s first automated stencil cleaner. In 2000, Austin American Technology became a market leader in inline cleaning systems with the introduction of the award-winning HydroJet® series. Patented cleaning and drying technologies were incorporated into an energy and space-efficient format to set new standards for performance and low cost of ownership. Building on this success, AAT introduced the MicroJet® inline flip chip cleaner to provide high volume cleaning capability in a small footprint.  In 2013 AAT introduced the world’s smallest most efficient inline cleaner, the NanoJet®.
