Adsorber HM 1 Compact

Heavy Metal Adsorber for Cleaning and Rinsing Bath

The Adsorber HM1 Compact was developed for the adsorption of heavy metals from cleaning and rinsing media used in automated cleaning processes within the electronics manufacturing industry.

Concerns regarding the redeposition of heavy metals (e.g. copper or tin) on less noble metal and components or the development of local galvanic elements can now be avoided through a continuous adsorption process.
Contaminated waste water from the rinsing process can also be treated in accordance with the local requirements and regulations.Due to its compact size, the Adsorber HM1 Compact is particularly suitable for batch cleaning systems.

Key benefits of the Adsorber HM1 Compact:

  • Prevents recontamination of heavy metals on less noble metals or components.
  • Fulfills legal waste water regulations regarding heavy metals in the disposal of the rinse bath.
  • Extended bath life time due to lower heavy metal loading.
  • Higher process reliability and improved stability of cleaning processes.
  • Disposal method: cartridge can be disposed of locally and does not need to be returned to ZESTRON.
