Whether your process uses new or existing soldering equipment, Air Products' Inert Wave Soldering system is designed to lower your cost of ownership by reducing dross, increasing joint quality and decreasing maintenance costs. Through extensive research both in-house and with our customers, we've optimized our proprietary system to deliver results. Leading electronics assembly companies around the world can achieve up to 75% dross savings, 10% increase in productivity, enhanced quality, and better first pass yields, resulting in significant overall process savings.

Through efficient use of nitrogen, our Inert Wave Soldering technology enables customers to:

  • Lower solder consumption via reduced dross
  • Lower maintenance and equipment cleaning costs
  • Increase solder joint quality with improved through hole wetting and fill
  • Significantly decrease most commonly observed defects such as shorts and icicles
  • Decrease flux consumption
  • Reduce/eliminate post-soldering cleaning

These results all add up to one thing — a lower cost of ownership for your wave soldering process.
