Nitrogen provides a suitable protective atmosphere for soldering processes
Wave soldering, selective soldering and reflow soldering are processes for joining different materials. Such processes are usually carried out in an inert gas atmosphere composed of nitrogen in order to ensure high product quality. In this regard, the use of nitrogen serves the purpose of producing high-quality solder joints. Nitrogen provides a suitable environment for avoiding oxidation and helps to prevent the adverse effects of oxygen on the soldering process. This suppresses dross formation and reduces solder and flux consumption, for example. The result is improved soldering quality and reduced rework and repairs. In addition, electronics manufacturers, for example, are now only using lead-free solders in order to comply with the RoHS directive of the EU (Restriction of Hazardous Substances). The processing of such 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.
