Dual acid decapsulation system
The Elite Etch from RKD Engineering is an Automated Mixed Acid Decapsulator that enables high productivity through the integration of advanced features. This Decapsulator rapidly and easily opens even the most delicate packages by delivering precise, micro-aliquots of nitric, sulfuric, or mixes of these acids to the package with no sample damage. The delivery of is done with enough pressure to create extreme turbulence in the etched cavity greatly accelerating the rate of encapsulant removal. Etch times are reduced by a factor of two to five while allowing for reduction in etch temperature and reduced acid consumption.
