Overview. The Nitrogen Generator is specifially manufactured for Nordson SELECT by Parker Hannifin Corporation, a major industrial supplier of motion control technologies, including aerospace, climate control, electromechanical, filtration, fluid and gas handling, hydraulics, pneumatics, process control, sealing and shielding products. Nitrogen inerting is widely used in lead-free solder applications.  The elimination of oxygen prevents oxidation which is the major cause of degradation in the organic solderability coating on circuit boards.  Inerting with nitrogen improves joint integrity by reducing pitting, voids and discoloration in the solder.  Nitrogen also improves machine performance and reduces solder dross build-up.  The Nordson SELECT Nitrogen Generator is designed to deliver clean, dry, pure nitrogen for selective soldering applications. The installation of a Nordson SELECT nitrogen generator in place of bulk nitrogen or cylinder supply will significantly decrease operating and maintenance costs while ensuring defect-free production runs.

Integrated Solutions. The Nitrogen Generator augments the closed-loop process controls contained in Nordson SELECT’s SWAK-OS 4.0 software providing seamless operation for your selective soldering process.  Nordson SELECT’s closed-loop process controls enable successful results for a full range of soldering applications and ensures stable and repeatable results for high-yield production.

Experience. With over a decade of selective soldering experience and more than a thousand systems currently in production, Nordson SELECT is committed to providing innovative solutions for all selective soldering needs.  Our global support network, including state-of-the-art application development labs, provides customers with worldclass know-how and application expertise.
