The EEV Blog's Soldering Tutorial Video: Fun, Informative Tips for Soldering Newbies

We've always got our eyes open for tutorials, tips, tricks and anything we think would make a great resource for our readers. We especially enjoy passing along solid soldering wisdom whenever we can.

The Electronics Engineering Video Blog has an extensive offering of excellent videos and other material. We recently discovered their EEVblog #180 Soldering Tutorial Part 1: Tools video hosted by David L. Jones:


Jones presents some excellent material about what kinds of tools you'll need to do basic soldering. He makes potentially boring information (for instance, his explanation of the different tip shapes and why they're useful) fun, entertaining, and memorable in a 27-minute-long video.

Speaking from his experience, he tells you what soldering tools you really need, which ones you should spend a lot of money on, and what brands are the best (we were particularly excited to see his recommendation of one of our favorites, the Hakko FX-888 Soldering Station). By the end of the video, you'll have an informed opinion of what tools you'll need to enter the wonderful world of soldering.

There are also two follow-up videos you'll want to check out. Part 2 shows you how to solder and Part 3 delves into the topic of Surface Mount work. We highly recommend a visit to the EEV Blog, which contains so much informative material you'll be browsing for days.

Check back with The Q Source Resource often for more tips, tricks, and tutorials. And if you find any that you want to share, please pass them along to us. For more information about Soldering Tools, please visit the Soldering & Desoldering Department at QSource.com.

How to Protect Your Manufacturing Plant from the Hazards of Dangerous Chemicals: Guest Blog

Special thanks to our guest blogger, Lenard Cohen, President of Static Solutions

Companies seeking to avoid potential dangers to their workers, the environment, and ESD-sensitive components must consider a number of factors when weighing the benefits of high-quality ESD products and their cost. To help make this choice easier, the most important step should be to educate the engineers and buyers about the possible risks and how they can be avoided.

Education about the potential hazards will help to address the traditional conflicts every company faces:
  • The engineer wants to correct or prevent an ESD-caused problem
  • The buyer wants to purchase a material that meets functional specifications
  • The safety engineer, if there is one, must specify the safest material and focus on avoiding future litigation
The Clean Air Act Regulations & How to Address Them
Some of the aforementioned conflicts were made more challenging many years back when the EPA's Clean Air Act issued regulations to reduce 189 toxins. The affected products fall under both state and federal regulatory agencies (California and Massachusetts being very stringent).

The best way to address these toxins is by focusing on the two most important criteria:
  • The information presented in the Material Safety and Data Sheet (MSDS). Learning to read the MSDS is very important (if you don't know how to read one you're missing potentially vital information; such as if a particular product needs special precautions for application or disposal)
  • The Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) number for each product. It is important to keep the VOC number as low as possible to prevent contamination
What are the Sources of VOC
VOCs are most commonly found in the following areas:
  • Soldering: such as plating, solder, flux, stencil cleaners, and flux-removing solvents. Using lead-free solders (RoHS approved) has gained common acceptance. One of the concerns of using lead-free solder, though, is the higher operating temperatures, the need to use more aggressive solders, and whisker generation. There are exemptions from the EPA's regulations for the defense and hospital industries
  • Coatings: including ESD paints, isocyanates and other cross-linking agents, aziridines, ESD floor finishes, strippers, cleaners, and hand lotions
  • Materials: like ESD table and floor mats, finger cots, and smocks
  • Coalescent agents from floor finishes and free monomers from polymer binders
  • Phthalates used in common table floor mats and the chemicals used to clean the mats
  • Paraben-containing hand lotions: are not allowed for pregnant women
  • Floor finishes: should not have certain chemicals in their formulation, i.e., phthalates (Green formulations, that have undergone testing, are available from reputable sources)
  • Strippers: should not contain sodium hydroxide or Diethylene glycol monobutyl ether (DEGBE)
  • Table/floor mats: avoid those containing dioctyl phthalates, which are present in vinyls and lower cost rubber mats
Safeguarding Workers from VCMs
Volatile Condensing Materials (VCM) are also potentially harmful to workers, parts, and the environment. Here are the best ways to avoid the dangers:
  • Read the MSDS sheet fully
  • Call manufacturers and request hard core test data
  • Always use proper precautions when handling all ESD products (gloves, eyewear, exhausts)
  • Remember when using ESD products the aim is to:
    • Eliminate or prevent ESD caused failures
    • Create a safe environment (and avoid all potential fines)
    • Protect the worker (this will avoid any possible law suits)
  • Purchase from proven, reputable sources
Educating workers, engineers, and buyers will help to create a safe and compliant workplace and reduce the chance of employee injuries or legal action against the company. For further information about protecting and preparing your company to face dangerous chemical hazards please contact the experts at Q Source.

JBC Tools FAQ Answers Your Soldering Temperature Questions

Knowing the correct soldering temperature is important to completing a proper soldering job. Our friends at JBC Tools, manufacturer of quality, ESD-safe soldering/desoldering/rework products, created an FAQ to provide you with answers to your soldering temperature questions.

The Soldering Temperatures FAQ is a must-read (see below for a preview answer) and will help you make up your mind when purchasing a JBC Soldering Station:

Q. Will a JBC Tool allow me to solder at a lower temperature?
A. Yes, because JBC Tools tips have extremely fast thermal response. Slow thermal response means the tip doesn’t have the time to recover the temperature (especially if a series of solder joints are being performed). Non-JBC iron tips experience a significant drop in temperature as the tip transfers heat to the board. When the operator uses a higher temperature to combat slow response, it can result in shorter tip life and PCB/component damage.
JBC's Knowledge Base includes a lot of other great info…definitely worth a visit.

Q Source has been a JBC Tools distributor for years and QSource.com offers 300 JBC products. So, if you're looking for a JBC Tools Soldering Stations, Desoldering Stations, Rework Stations, and more, please visit our Web site or give us a call (800-966-6020) or email and we'll help you find the right tool for your job.

Clearing the Air About Fume Extraction

At QSource.com, we carry a wide variety of products for fume extraction (such as the Hakko FA-400 and the recently blogged about, FA-430 Fume Extraction System). We understand that fume extraction is an important part of any soldering system and we thought providing our readers with a brief explanation of how fume extraction works would be a valued resource.

Our friends over at Hakko have created an excellent Tech Note about "The Purpose of Fume Extraction." We've edited this down to a few major points and highly recommend reading their full article at your leisure.

WHY IS FUME EXTRACTION NECESSARY?
When soldering, harmful fumes containing gasses, aerosols, and particulate matter are created. Breathing in these dangerous fumes for an extended time can cause illness and irritation. As the article points out, both metallic and organic compounds are involved in the soldering process and the combination of those compounds, scorched board materials, and conformal coatings being heated are what lead to the potentially noxious fumes.

The main culprit, and what you really want to address when soldering, is flux smoke. There are several types of soldering flux and they create different fumes to extract.

VARIETIES OF FLUX
The main varieties of flux are resin, no-clean, and water soluble. Each can create a different kind of irritant fumes.

Resin-based fluxes are the most popular and are usually made up of an organic compound (mainly, colophony, which is found in pine trees). The reaction of the acids in these fluxes can create irritation to the skin or eyes and sometimes other allergic reactions. Some resin-based fluxes contain chemical activators, which can cause further irritations.

No-clean fluxes can be organic or not, but most of them are more acidic than resin-based fluxes, and therefore, produce more potentially irritating fumes. Solder smoke from no-clean fluxes is based on the breakdown of alcohols and typically can contain acetone, terpenes, and formaldehyde among others.

Water-soluble fluxes usually contain carboxylic acids, which are organic, and a detergent. Both elements can create irritating fumes.

FUME EXTRACTION: PROTECTING THE SOLDERING WORK AREA
As we can see, most fluxes are made up of some type of organic material, and it is the breakdown of those materials under heat that causes the potentially dangerous fumes during the soldering process. Acids in fluxes can also react with oxides on the boards being soldered and also lead to fumes.

To provide protection during the soldering process, it seems obvious that the use of fume extraction systems not only makes sense, but should be a standard component of every work area where soldering will take place.

QSource.com can help you find a fume extraction system to suit your needs. We also offer a large selection of soldering/desoldering products to build the perfect system for your workplace. Visit our Web site to make a purchase or do more research. Or, as always, give us a call (800-966-6020) or send us an email and let our experts know what you’re looking for.
