How often do you recommend a viscosity check on the conformal coating material in the DS101 tank?

Checking viscosity is down to the time the tank lid is off. If it is off all day I would suggest twice a day check to ensure control. If it is a few hours then each time you start. The main issue is building a pattern of use. As you use the dip coating system, record the hours, volume of boards and the conformal coating thinners used, and chart this. Then, you will be able to anticipate when it needs checking and when it doesn’t. Also, contributes to the lean manufacture processing.

About Dr Lee Hitchens

Dr Hitchens has been working in the electronics industry and the area of conformal coatings for over 25 years in various areas including sales and technical support. He has also been training people for almost the same amount of time in all areas of conformal coating whether that is materials & equipment selection, process development or troubleshooting to help them solve their particular problem. Recently, he decided that the industry needed a specific place where all of the useful knowledge on conformal coatings could be collated for users to find easily and use in their own production process. So, Nexus was born and he began the Nexus eBook project.
