Magnetic Particles

Substrate: Magnetic Latches

Contamination Challenge

During magnetic latch assembly operations, microscopic magnetic particles must be removed from strongly magnetized surfaces to meet a stringent particle cleanliness specification.

Solution

Manual CO2 Composite Spray™ cleaning process and system.

  • Benchtop spray cleaning system with footswitch control
  • Single CO2 composite spray applicator – pendant style
  • Local exhaust plenum to remove magnetic contamination

Benefits

  • 100% dry processing – Dry-In/Dry-Out
  • Selective cleaning (contaminated latch surfaces)
  • Low operational cost
  • Faster and more effective than manual wiping and ultrasonic cleaning processes
