• EVS Solder Recovery Systems
11
Chemical Dross Reduction
• Wave Oils:
• Wave oils have been around for Many Years. Although they
reduce dross there are many negative side effects.
• Very expensive as the oils have to added to the process EVERY
FEW HOURS.
• Have been reported to increase shorts bridging and rework.
• Wave maintenance, cleaning and wave downtime all increase.
• Oily/Black coating on contact parts, pumps and solder pot.
• This increases Running costs significantly.
12
Dross Reducing Powders
• Dross reducing powders have to be stirred into the
solder and dross are distributed throughout the solder
bath creating an emulsion. This may be detrimental to
solder joints in some applications. Chemicals are not
needed when using EVS.
• Open Nitrogen can cost up to $1600 a month to run.
The traditional argument for Nitrogen is that it is required
to run a no clean process. No longer true. The modern
formulations are more than capable of supporting NC
technology in atmospheric conditions. The EVS can
easily be justified by switching off the Nitrogen and
saving the money!

EVS 8K/10K VERSUS WAVE OILS
•
1) Once you have paid for the EVS machine you are forever making a large monthly savings.
•
WAVE OILS: Constant have to buy the liquid and ship the remaining dross back to them at your costs ( VERY
EXPENSIVE) as they started the price low and increased it steadily and the new Lead Free WAVE OIL is even
more expensive that lead solder WAVE OIL.
•
2) One EVS can be used between 1-3 waves so your ROI and efficiency of de drossing is substantially improved..
•
WAVE OILS: has to be added to EACH wave every few hours again (VERY EXPENSIVE). and over you pay high
costs to reduce dross forever. ( DOESN’T MAKE ANY SENSE)
•
3) EVS puts pure solder back in to your solder pot. What you put in the EVS is what you get back, No chemistry or
change of state of the solder.
•
WAVE OILS: Why would you want to add an additive to your process.
•
4) EVS cleans up your process, No Dross reducing powders or oils needed, Reducing your shorts bridging and
rework.
•
WAVE OILS: Increases maintenance costs of the wave and coats wave in black discharge, massive increases in
maintenance.
•
5) EVS fits in perfectly with your plants ISO14001 mantra of RECYLCE, REDUSE and REUSE with the EVS
achieves all three.
•
WAVE OILS: are adding a new chemical to your process and you can not RECYLE, REDUCE and REUSE the
remaining dross that comes from the waves, you have to ship it back to the supplier
14
• DROSS REDUCING POWDERS:
• Dross Reducing Powders have been around for many
years. Although they reduce dross there are MANY
NEGITIVE SIDE EFFECTS.
• The powders have to be mixed in to the dross on the
wave causing an increased exposure to fumes that can
be dangerous to the operator and the people around the
wave.
• Pot cleaning and down time increases as the powders
have to be mixed in to the dross and the dross chopped
up for 20-30 minutes.
• The powders and this chopping/mixing has been
reported to increase shorts bridging and rework.
15
EVS 8K/10K VERSUS DROSS
REDUCING POWDERS
•
1) EVS systems speeds up your dedrossing time by up to 70%.
•
DROSS REDUCING POWDERS increase dedrossing time and create more work as
they have to be chopped in to the dross and mixed for 20-30 minutes to be effective.
•
2) EVS systems have a separate fume extraction as standard.
•
DROSS REDUCING POWDERS increase exposure to fumes and can be dangerous
to the operators and people around the wave.
•
3) EVS puts pure solder back in to your solder pot. What you put in the EVS is what
you get back, No chemistry or change of state of the solder.
•
DROSS REDUCONG POWERS: Why would you want to add additives to your
process.
•
4) EVS cleans up your process, No DROSS REDUCING POWDERS needed,
Reducing your shorts bridging and rework by 30to 40%.
•
DROSS REDUCING POWDERS: Increases maintenance costs of the wave and
coats wave in a powder, significantly increases in maintenance and downtime.

Q&A
What is the effect on the alloy of processing tin lead dross at 285-350 C in the EVS?
Hundreds of customers doing thousands of solder tests over many years have shown that the levels of impurities
contained within the solder alloy processed through the EVS are exactly the same as the solder in the solder pot. What
you put in is exactly the same as what you get out and
Can I use the same EVS for Lead and Lead Free Solders?
EVS on all its range offer both Lead and Lead Free versions. Due to cross contamination you can not use the same EVS
for Lead and Lead Free. Separate machines would be needed. EVS also offer a Lead Free upgrade kit to convert a
machine used on Lead solder to Lead Free.
Do the internal temperatures create additional contaminants?
NO: What you put the EVS is what you get back out exactly the solder quality of solder that is in the solder pot.
Can I process dross from a bath that has an oil blanket or that has had wave oils to reduce dross?
Never use oil with EVS as the oil burns and causing smoking. One advantage of using the EVS is that more frequent de
drossing can be carried out without additional cost, thereby eliminating the need for an oil blanket or Wave Oils - another
financial saving. The logic of using a messy, time consuming process which limits the process options generated by new
technologies is questionable and highly expensive as they have to be added every 4 hours.
Can I process dross that has been treated with dross reducing chemicals?
For dross reducing chemicals to be effective they should be stirred into the dross, which creates an emulsion which in turn
results in the chemical being present in every solder joint on the PCB. This process has been rejected by a major
American computer manufacturer and is also an unnecessary cost. Regardless the dross can be processed although
yields may be slightly reduced. EVS customers by stopping using dross reducing powders they have significantly reduced
shorts, bridging and rework. Again a massive saving in cost and time.
What is the power consumption of the EVS?
EVS max consumption is 1.6 KW during start up. The unit has a soft start to lower power demands and once at operating
temperature runs at 3-5 Amps.
23
Q&A
What precautions do I need to ensure my machine operator’s safety?
The EVS is a safe machine to operate. Operators should wear the recommended safety Equipment and follow the
instructions in the operating manual provided which should be displayed by each machine. Warnings are
displayed on the machine. ONLY TRAINED PERSONNEL SHOULD OPERATE THE EVS.
What extraction do I need?
The EVS has a standalone filtration system that requires no external ducting.
Does the EVS have any approvals and patents?
Yes. The EVS complies with all CE requirements, plus BS5304 and is covered by National, European,
International and USA patents.
Can the temperature of the EVS be varied?
The EVS is pre-set to provide optimum results in dross recycling. But is fully Programmable.
Does the cycling process produce lead fumes?
No, as the temperature in the EVS is regulated to shut down should the temperature reach 400C (716F) well
below lead fume generation.
What happens to the final dross deposit?
The remaining solder dross can be sent in the normal way to your solder supplier.
Can I use EVS to recycle dross from more than one wave soldering machine?
Yes. However it is important that dross from each individual machine cycle returned to the original bath otherwise
cross contamination will be evident. On sites with multiple WSM’s where cross contamination is critical it would be
wise to install a higher ratio of EVS’s to wave soldering machines to prevent expensive cross contamination.
Do I need extra personnel to operate EVS?
No. The same operators who de drosses the waves now would operate the EVS and as EVS is a self contained
process permitting more rapid de drossing without penalty. Your operators time is then freed for other duties.
