Dross Production Calculations

50-75 % of solder thrown away as dross!!

Hard to believe isn't it.

In our experience companies vary rarely receive full credit for solder dross and therefore, do not know how much they produce unless they weigh it themselves.

The following are three real customer examples showing just how much dross is produced:

Example 1: Celestica Spain

% reduction in solder purchased = 50%
% solder recovered from dross = 65%


Example 2:
Kimball Electronics USA

% reduction in solder purchased = 50%
% solder recovered from dross = 77%


Example 3:
AB Automotive Electronics Ltd

Pre EVS solder usage per month = 1300 kg
Pre EVS dross production per month = 990 kg

=> % dross made= 76%


With so much Dross calculate what you could be saving ...
