WDC 2 Dry Cleaner
When using lead free you will be experienced an increased in oxidation in the wettable area of the tip. These oxides
must be removed regularly otherwise it will make the tip completely unwettable and not usable anymore. When
cleaning the tip by means of the Weller WDC Dry Cleaner a special brass wool is used. First the surplus solder is
removed by tapping the tip on the soft edge of the collector box.The final cleaning is then done by pushing and turning
the tip in the brass wool. After cleaning there is still a fine amount of solder on the tip avoiding fast oxidation
of the iron layer which is an advantage versus the cleaning by the wet sponge. The brass wool can be soaked in flux
which may improve the performance further. More informations for cleaning you can find on page 154/155.
