Layton Technologies' Machine Uses Azeotropic Blend for Cleaning of Electric Components

Originally titled 'Machine Uses Azeotropic Blend for Cleaning of Electric Components '

The drying of the components is carried out in the vapor phase and freeboard area below the sealed sliding lid. The components can be immersed and/or sprayed. The spray pressure can be controlled for particularly fragile components.

This azeotrope has been shown to be effective in removing a variety of contaminants since alcohol’s polar molecular chemistry results in repulsion forces between particles and the surface. These forces tend to shield the effect of Van der Waals forces and dissipate electrostatic forces to the extent that alcohol is approximately twice as effective for the removal of sub-micron sized particles as water.

Cyclohexane, a solvent with physical properties much like alcohol, is effective for removing organic films (oil and grease) when used in similar equipment. The drying of the components is carried out in the vapor phase and freeboard area below the sealed sliding lid. The components can be immersed and/or sprayed. The spray pressure can be controlled for particularly fragile components.
