Manassas, VA, United States, 2010/04/06 - ZESTRON Corporation, the global leader in precision cleaning, is pleased to announce that ion chromatography is now available at its Technical Center in Virginia.
“The installation of ion chromatography is a direct response to the rapidly growing customer demand for premium precision cleaning facilities and services. It also marks an important milestone in our “Global Link” Initiative as we continue to enhance our Technical Centers located strategically throughout the world,” said Harald Wack, President, ZESTRON Corporation.
Ion chromatography is a powerful analytical technique that validates product cleanliness based on the separation of the ionic species in a solution. In the case of circuit boards, ion chromatography can help identify high levels of ionic contaminants that can contribute to shortages. Ultimately, cleanliness testing through ion chromatography enables manufacturers to confidently go to market with the highest quality products.
Manufacturers of high reliability products, including those of electronic circuit boards, must validate the cleanliness of products during cleaning trials to ensure that the process meets their requirements. For circuit boards, cleanliness issues lead to shorts and failures. “Many of our customers are high reliability electronics manufacturers,” said Umut Tosun, M.S. Chem. Eng., ZESTRON. “We are pleased that manufacturers who visit our facility have yet another valuable tool to validate the cleanliness of products during cleaning trials and process optimizations.”
