Volatile Solution Application for Component Devices

This is an apparatus to perform an application of solvents, lubricants, etchants, or the like to selected areas of component devices in a controlled manner. It is particularly useful where the solutions are volatile and hazardous.

The apparatus comprises a solution tank 10 including a solution agitator or stirring device 11. This functions to keep the solution 12 properly mixed. Components to be treated, as for example, module electronic units 13 with pins 13a protruding from one side are to be dipped a predetermined distance into some of the solution 12.

Components 13 to be treated are loaded into an opening 15a in the horizontal slide member 15 in the cap 16 that covers the top of the solution tank
10. Moving the horizontal slide member 15 from its c position to its d position, places the downward depending pins 13a in the opening 16a in the cap 16 and above the solution 12. The gap between the component 13 and the perimeter of the opening 16a is minimal, and there is substantially no escape of fumes from the tank 10.

A vertical slide assembly comprises the handle 20, guide shafts 21, and a tray 22 attached to the lower tips of shafts 21. The tray 22 in its lower position is immersed in the solution 12. When the slide is raised to a predetermined position, in its upward travel, the tray 22 full of solution 12 will raise above the solution 12 level in the tank 10. Thus, the pins 13a are dipped a controlled dist...
