Smart Sonic stencil cleaner wastewater may be treated in the same manner as other aqueous stencil cleaner wastewater i.e. filtration, hauling, etc. However, most users prefer not to use filtration and not discharge anything to drain because of the associated liabilities with drain disposal, the continuous cost of filter changes and because, when using filtration, there is always an effluent left over requiring drain disposal or hauling.

The Smart Sonic Stencil Cleaning Process offers the user an alternative. Because Smart Sonic's 440-R SMT Detergent contains no hazardous ingredients, no VOCs and has been certified environmentally safe, the Smart Sonic wastewater qualifies for routine evaporation and may be evaporated directly to atmosphere in standard wastewater evaporation equipment. When using a wastewater evaporator, there is no liquid hazardous waste for disposal! Nothing is sent to drain! The need for an expensive filtration system is eliminated and there are no filters to continuously buy, change and haul away! Most importantly, the liability associated with drain disposal is completely eliminated! Most Smart Sonic users prefer the advantages of using wastewater evaporation and there are over 600 Smart Sonic wastewater evaporators in operation worldwide.

Waste management of the Smart Sonic Stencil Cleaning Process is the most flexible in the industry. Whether you decide to use evaporation, filtration, or haul the wastewater, you will have peace of mind when using the Smart Sonic Stencil Cleaning Process.

Wastewater Evaporators

Model SE-1

Model EZ-0
  • Traditional style evaporator with a heavy duty design
  • 12 KW bottom-mounted electric contact heaters
  • Automatic Hi/Low level control
  • Tool operated / easy-lift lid
  • Floor level clean-out
  • Thermal-jacketed design allows temp-controlled process
  • 12 KW electric immersion heaters in thermal media
  • External Hi/Low level sensors facilitate easy maintenance
  • Tool operated removable cover - optional auto interlock
  • Ergonomically designed for easy clean-out
  • Power drain & reservoir recirculation filter
  • Separate process and reservoir chambers allows continued stencil cleaner operation during clean-out

Smart Sonic Wastewater Evaporators require a small capital investment,
infrequent maintenance, deliver "zero discharge" to drain and offer environmental peace of mind.

Built-in exhaust blower for up to 15' duct run.** Includes Exhaust-proving controls and alarm

Automatic start and standby control - includes temperature LED and dual safety over temp. control

Dual Mode Operation provides easy removal of liquid waste or complete evaporation to dry waste

Reduces Cost of handling large volumes of liquid hazardous waste. Plus, evaporators cost far less than the equivalent reverse osmosis or ion exchange filtration systems required for handling the same amount of wastewater. Unlike costly filtration systems, there is no effluent left for drain disposal.

Eliminates Liquid Hazardous Waste Disposal - Reduces hundreds of gallons of liquid wastewater to just a few pounds of solids or a few gallons of concentrated liquid.

Stainless Steel Construction - Eliminates rust and corrosion common to other evaporators

Meets MP&M Guidelines because nothing is discharged to drain.

Reduces Liability - Eliminates potential liability associated with industrial drain disposal because there is "zero discharge" and eliminates the long term liability of transporting and disposing liquid hazardous waste.*

High Performance Evaporation rate and Low energy consumption - 4 - 6 gallons per hour evaporation rate reduces one week's wastewater in just a few hours.

Full One Year Parts and Labor Warranty - FOB Factory

Smart Sonic Wastewater Evaporators are designed specifically to meet the
rigid requirements and demands of the printed circuit board industry.
Don't settle for anything less!

* EPA Super Fund regulations could hold all companies discharging lead-processed wastewater responsible to share in the cleanup of lead contaminated sites within a 50-mile radius. A wastewater evaporator would remove the user from the selection pool because there is "zero discharge" to drain. Consult your local regulation authorities.

** Longer exhaust runs, or runs with turns, may require an additional blower which should be sized and installed by an HVAC professional.

*** Evaporation rate will vary depending on relative humidity, duct installation and CFM exhaust rate.
