Ionic Contamination Test Systems (Ionograph)
Ionic Contamination Test Systems (Ionograph)

As the industry standard for ionic contamination testing specified in commonly used cleaning standards, the SCS Ionograph BT Series offers a convenient table top design that provides quick and accurate testing for labs and manufacturers that need to test individual parts, complete assemblies or small devices. The newly redesigned Ionograph models are available in three test cell sizes to match your application and are available with an all-in-one computer or tablet for maximum convenience and efficiency. The CE-certified Ionograph BT Series features easy-access door panels for routine maintenance of consumable components and their full stainless steel structure is durable for easy cleaning and corrosion resistance.

SCS Ionographs offer customers reliable and efficient testing capabilities, including:

  • Compliance with industry specifications including MIL-STD-2000A, IPC-TM-650 and ANSI/J-STD-001
  • Control of aqueous and semi-aqueous cleaning processes for bare and assembled printed circuit boards
  • Control of both the cleaning and the no-clean processes
  • Testing to prevent corrosion or product performance problems associated with ionic contamination
  • Cleanliness testing of performance-sensitive small parts
  • Cleanliness testing of cleanroom specific products such as gloves, fixtures, assembly tools and critical assembly components used in precise manufacturing
  • Process control of no clean/low residue processes, including spray fluxer set up and monitoring

SCS Ionograph BT Series: SP (Small Parts)

  • 6 x 6-inch test cell can detect very small amounts of contamination with accurate precision
  • Comes complete with custom basket for sample holding
  • Ideal for testing individual components or extremely small devices
  • Available with all-in-one computer or tablet

SCS Ionograph BT Series: MP (Medium Parts)

  • 12 x 14-inch test cell for more standard size samples
  • Ideal starter unit for testing a variety of products ranging from parts to complete PC assemblies
  • Available with all-in-one computer or tablet

SCS Ionograph BT Series: LP (Large Parts)

  • 14 x 20-inch test cell for larger components
  • Allows for testing of oversized samples
  • Available with all-in-one computer or tablet

SCS Ionograph BT Series feature easy-access panels for routine maintenance.

Ionograph® SMD V

Dynamic testing of ionic contamination is a widely approved and followed standard. So, too, is the equipment that makes it possible — SCS Ionograph®. Available in different models, the SCS Ionograph is the industry standard of testing technology.

SCS Ionograph SMD V Features

  • Designed for large part ionic contamination testing in a production environment
  • Submerged agitation jets and optional heated extract solution provide outstanding sensitivity
  • Available with convenient onboard all-in-one computer or tablet
  • Operated with SCS PowerView software
  • Test cells available in four test cell sizes

About heated solution testing:

The SMD V gives you the option to test with a heated solution. As IPC-TM-650 describes the benefit, testing with heated solution enables you to “accelerate and improve the efficiency of extraction of ionic material from poorly accessible regions, such as under surface-mounted components.”
