Moisture specialist Super Dry Totech has launched new solutions for solder paste storage, bringing both temperature control and 4.0 traceability while eliminating the uncontrolled management of solder inventory.
Solder paste is a shelf-life dependent item and manufacturers recommend it be stored in a First In-First Out manner. Refrigerated storage prolongs the shelf life of solder paste and upon delivery, it should be directly placed into refrigerated storage, typically30°C for extended periods of time may no longer perform as expected. Prior to use, solder paste must be brought gently to the temperature conditions in which it will be used, which means movement to another location, for up to one day.
Newly launched Model XSDC 601 solder paste storage cabinets with network compatibility maintain an internal temperature of 2 - 20°C with little energy expenditure. Constructed from dual wall insulated stainless steel, they incorporate 40 KG capacity shelves and provide complete traceability of the storage conditions and environment history. Maintaining tracking of paste locations and time in and out of refrigeration are also possible with additional software.
