HALSTAR is a modular cleaning machine especially suited for removing all fluxes in infrared fusing, solder levelling or roller tinning of printed circuit boards.
The same machine can be advantageously employed in many other processes of the fabrication of printed circuits where through-hole washing and drying is required.
Halstar, developed to respect special Official Approval Process Certification, has specific tanks for high temperature water and solvent use, with wall side thermostatically insulated.
The strong self supporting structures, three millimetre thick, are totally constructed in Stainless Steel and available from left to right or right to left conveyor direction.
Halstar is composed of a sequence of rinse sections where hot water could be used, complete of nylon brushes to ensure a perfect cleaning surface.
All sumps are located inside the machine and pumps, cartridge filters on pump outlet and pressure gauges are included. The system includes flow-meter with solenoid valve at inlet which ensures great water saving by adjusting the water flow to the minimum necessary for renewing the re-circulated water. All sump bottoms are sloped to facilitate emptying and cleaning operations. Each sump is connected to a drain through a valve, thus allowing selective empting of all fluids.
A vertical Multistage High Pressure pump is installed for strong water impact on boards surface and through holes deed of washing.
Following the solvent chamber, a squeegee minimizes the solution drag-out into the rinsing sections. A ring blower can be added in this section to increase the efficiency of saving solution.
In case of very small holes and particular job, the fluid heads of rinse sections are required to ensure the ideal cleaning result.
Halstar has different versions of dryer in relation of the process and the drying capability required.
Halstar has a separate electrical cabinet as a standard.
