Tank liquid management and replenishment

1. Acid equivalent concentration of prepreg and silver immersion working fluid

A. Reagents

1. 0.1N NaOH. 2. pH meter (pre-adjusted to pH 4-10 range) B. Step

1. suction. 5 mL bath 100 to mL of the beaker.

2.Add 50 mL of pure water.

3. In 0.1N NaOH dropwise to pH4, record the titration ml atoms V4. 4. Continued dropwise to 0.1N NaOH to pH8, record the titration ml atoms V8.

(V8 will only be used for recording purposes)

C. Calculate Acid equivalent concentration = V4 mL number x N NaOH / sample volume

D. Maintenance

1. Please keep the acid equivalent concentration at 0.1-0.2N.

2. Each was added 0.63 mL / L of concentrated nitric acid increases the acidity of 0.01N.

2. prepreg and immersion silver fluid chelating agent

A. Reagents

1. 0.05M copper nitrate solution (or copper sulfate solution). 2. Acetic acid buffer (82g anhydrous sodium acetate + 60mL acetic acid with water to 1 liter). 3. PAN indicator.

B step

1. Pipette 20 mL of bath solution into a 250 mL Erlenmeyer flask. 2. Add 25 mL of acetate buffer.

3. Add 100mL DI water.

4. Add 3-5 drops of PAN indicator. 5. Titrate with copper nitrate solution to the purple end point. 6. Record the titration ml .

C. Calculation: Concentration of the mixture = the number of copper nitrate mL x M copper nitrate / sample volume

D. Maintenance

1. Maintain the chelating agent at 0.01-0.02M ( pre-soak ) and 0.02-0.04M ( immersion silver ).

2.Each addition of 3.3 mL/L of Ag-800B will increase the chelating agent by 0.001M.

3. If adding more than 15 mL/L of Ag-800B , please analyze again after adding and stirring

Acid concentration used in the nitric acid added when needed.

3. Copper concentration

A. Reagents

1. 1 mg/L standard copper solution. 2. 2 mg/L standard copper solution.

B. Step

1. Take 1 mL tank solution into a 100 mL quantitative flask. (Dilution ratio=100) 

2. Add pure water to the 100 mL mark and stir evenly.

3. Use AA atomic absorption spectrometer to set 

Wavelength 324.8nm Slit width 0.7nm Lean, Blue flame

4. suction. 1 mg / L standard copper quasi-liquid

The suction 2 mg / L copper standard quasi-liquid

6. Draw the diluted sample and record the AA reading.

Note: If it exceeds the calibration range, adjust the dilution ratio of step 1 of the above method and repeat the above steps.


C. Calculation: mg/L copper = AA reading x dilution ratio.

4. Silver concentration

A. Reagents

1. 100 mg/L silver standard solution.

B. Step

1. Take 10 mL bath solution 100 to mL quantitative bottle.

2. Purified water to 100mL volume, and mix well.

3. Draw 1mL of each of the above solutions into 3 100mL quantitative bottles, and label A, B, C. 4. Take 1mL of 100 mg/L silver standard solution into B bottle, 2 mL of 100 mg/L silver standard solution Enter C bottle.

5. The quantitative ABC three 100mL graduated flask by adding purified water, and mix well.

6. Use AA atomic absorption spectrometer to set

Wavelength 328.1nm Slit width 0.7nm Lean, Blue flame

Record the readings of the three AA bottles of ABC and take the average at least 3 times.

C. Calculation: 0.5 x Abs A Abs A + = g/L silver

Abs B -Abs A Abs C - Abs A

Take the above binary average

D. Maintenance

1. Please maintain the silver concentration at 0.6 - 0.9 G / L.

2. Each addition of 3.3 mL/L of Ag-800A will increase the silver concentration by 0.1g/L

Bath life

Pre-dip solution , when Cu>1000mg/L, change the tank.

Immersion silver solution, when the total silver metal replenishment concentration reaches 7.5 g / L or when

When Cu>3000mg/L or after six months of use (whichever comes first), change the tank.
