Nitrogen generation for electronics production
Electronics manufacturers can reduce running costs in production by using nitrogen generated in-house.
Electronic assemblies are often manufactured using the wave soldering, selective soldering and reflow processes. A shielding gas atmosphere composed of nitrogen helps to ensure product quality.
In this regard, the use of nitrogen is essential for producing high-quality solder joints. Nitrogen provides a suitable environment for preventing oxidation. Consequently, the adverse effects of oxygen on the soldering process are avoided. This suppresses dross formation and reduces solder and flux consumption, for example. Improved soldering quality is the result as well as a reduced need for rework and repairs (e.g. whiskers that can lead to short circuits on the circuit board). Furthermore, electronics manufacturers now only use lead-free solders. The reason for this is the introduction of the EU directive restricting the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (RoHS - Restriction of Hazardous Substances). The processing of such lead-free solders necessitates the use of nitrogen as a shielding gas in the production process.
With our nitrogen generators, we supply high quality solutions for the stationary and mobile production of nitrogen for different applications, including for low volume requirements.
