Rinse Configurations for Conveyorized Equipment
All of the processes used in photo chemical
machining and in the manufacture of printed circuit
boards include many common sub-processes. One of
the most common of these sub-processes is rinsing.
Some form of rinsing appears in nearly all of the wet
processes. In the past, rinsing was often treated only
as a necessary evil with very little consideration
given to the various rinse configurations that could
be used. Today, environmental concerns and
operating cost pressures are forcing the
consideration of alternative rinse configurations.
