Heat Flow Happens

Posted on May 24, 2011

An often misunderstood concept is heat flow and how it can influence the temperature of the product being heated so here is Wikipedia’s definition of heat flow, followed by a discussion of our own on the subject.

Thermal Profiling and Vapor Phase Soldering

Posted on Sep 09, 2010

There has been some new talk by some of the best quality conscious electronic manufactures about the many benefits of an older soldering process: vapor phase soldering. Vapor phase soldering has a lot of good things to offer, now that we have gotten past the stigma of the old CFC fluids and moved on to newer chemistries. The maximum temperature that the assembly can be subjected to is dictated by the boiling point of the fluid being vaporized. Because the boiling point of the fluid is a physical constant, you might think, “Why bother running a thermal profile on the assembly being soldered.” This idea should be considered carefully, and here are some reasons why thermal profiling in vapor phase soldering is still a very good idea: 1. Although the boiling point of the vapor phase fluids is a physical attribute that limits the maximum temperature, the condensation of the fluid onto the components can impart a lot of heat, real fast. This can subject components t ...
