Problem 1:  "How do we reduce dross?"

Problem 2: "How can we recover solder from dross?"  

 

Solution 1:  WS50 EPAflow Wave Oil -- our low cost, low-smoke additive is virtually odor-free.  When used as a solder pot cover, non-toxic WS50 will prevent dross.  It's delivered as wax-like flakes, melts to a clear liquid at
55� C.  

    Bonus application!  Use WS50 as a flow medium to remove components from a pcb.  Lighter and cheaper than solder for this purpose, and it won't tin adjacent leads like solder will when melted.

Solution 2: WS27 Solder Reclaimer -- another inexpensive additive that Wenesco customers world-wide use to easily separate dross into two components:  pure solder and a gray powder that you remove and discard.  WS27 is safe and non-flammable, but its use does require proper venting of smoke generated during the quick process.   A little goes a long way!  
     
WS27 comes in handy 3 lb bottles. One bottle sells for $65.00 ($21.67/lb). Call for additional product information and quantity or bulk packaging discounts
Solution 3: Nitrogen Inerting  -- any Wenesco wave solder pot can be retrofitted to operate with nitrogen gas, as a cover, to eliminate the formation of dross (oxide).  This feature is especially desirable  when the pot is used in automatic high-production applications

NoteTin -- and high tin content materials such as lead free solder and lead-free babbitt -- will destroy conventional melting pot crucibles (liners), pumps, etc.  Wenesco can treat these parts to prevent this corrosive problem. Click HERE for details.
