EVS International, a leader in solder recovery, will showcase the new EVS 500LF lead-free version and EVS 8KLF at the 2016 IPC APEX EXPO. The EVS 500LF is ISO14001 compatible as it complies with the ISO mantra of reduce – reuse – recycle, enabling the customer to reduce solder consumption by up to 50+ percent, an unheard of reduction in the electronics production industry.
The EVS 500 also can help to reduce dedrossing time by 75 percent and waste dross off-site by up to 85 percent. The system meshes perfectly with environmental control systems and also helps to reduce customers’ carbon footprint, an important environmental imperative, by utilizing the latent heat already imputed to the dross to help the recovery process.
The EVS 500LF has been designed to be the same size as a printer and is aimed at multiple markets, such as the customer with one lead wave and one lead-free wave, the customer who uses Nitrogen or wants to reduce their Nitrogen usage. Additionally, the system is designed for even the customer with selective solder pots who only removes small amounts of dross every hour or the customer with multiple waves where one EVS 500LF is connected to each wave to ensure that maximum recovery is maintained throughout the life of the wave solder system. Users can quickly recover up to 80 percent of pure solder with a higher ROI from the waste dross.
The EVS 8KLF offers a capacity of 6kg/12lbs. Its integrated hopper makes rapid transfer of dross simpler and safer, and speeds de-drossing times by up to 75 percent. This provides a cleaner wave with less maintenance, less downtime and a reduction in shorts and bridging, as well as the potential to discontinue the use of messy wave oils and/or dross reduction powders.
