N2GEN: Nitrogen Generators for Electronics Manufacturing
Nitrogen is used in electronics manufacturing during soldering processes and to ensure quality products are produced in an inert atmosphere. Nitrogen gas helps prevent oxidation for both selective soldering and convection reflow soldering, while reflow ovens use nitrogen to provide a time and temperature controlled environment for effective soldering of the surface mount components.
South-Tek provides Nitrogen generators for electronics manufacturing that are designed to produce the exact purity and flowrate your process requires. N2GEN systems offer nitrogen purity ranging from 99.9-99.999% and flow rates up to 35,000 SCFH per unit. Generate nitrogen on-demand, in-house with an industrial Nitrogen generator and eliminate long-term gas contracts and delivery hassles. Nitrogen generation is a safer, smarter and cost-effective solution.
Using Nitrogen to Improve Electronics Product Quality
South-Tek’s dual-bed, PSA nitrogen generation technology creates the highest purity nitrogen (99.999%) and can maintain the purity throughout the factory. Nitrogen is a valuable tool for eliminating defects like De-Wetting or Head-In-Pillow associated with Bottom Terminated Components (BTC’s). Nitrogen can help improve product quality when used in the following manufacturing processes:
- Selective Soldering
- Reflow Soldering
- Reflow Ovens
When compared to other Nitrogen supplies, South-Tek’s Nitrogen Generators provide significant, on-going savings and a quick ROI (average of 12-14 months). South-Tek offers rental, lease or purchase options – all of which provide savings.
