Abstract

A vacuum source is used at the top of a cleaning tank to remove the circulating cleaning solution, i.e., deionized water, being pumped into the bottom of the tank so as to minimize the deleterious effects of carbon dioxide byproducts which occur at the tank top.

Ion Cleaning System

A vacuum source is used at the top of a cleaning tank to remove the circulating cleaning solution, i.e., deionized water, being pumped into the bottom of the tank so as to minimize the deleterious effects of carbon dioxide byproducts which occur at the tank top.

The vacuum source is incorporated in a closed-loop ion cleaning system which continuously recirculates the solution through the tank through appropriate filters. The system is used to remove organic contamination from printed circuit boards and the like which are inserted into the tank.
