N2 generator HAKKO FX-780 and FX-781

The details such as features, performance, maintenance information and service life are as follows.

View details Close

Features

Compressed air from compressor is separated by polymer membrane when it passes through the Hakko FX-780/FX-781. N2 gas goes to the Hakko FX-791 via tube, and other air constituents are discharged outside.

  • HAKKO FX-780: Small-capacity type
  • HAKKO FX-781: Large-capacity type, accepts 2 irons

What is the mechanism of N2 separation?

It utilizes the different permeability of each air constituent. N2 has lower permeability than oxygen or carbon dioxide.

Usage note

Connection

Connect the tube of compressor to the valve “AIR IN”. If connecting to the valve “N2 OUT”, N2 separation performance may decrease and nitrogen gas is not discharged from HAKKO FX-791.
*The picture on the right shows the connection sample of small-capacity type HAKKO FX-780.

Required compressed air

Supply compressed air 0.3 to 0.7MPa to HAKKO FX-780 or FX-781. 0.5MPa is recommended.

NoteIf compressed air 0.2MPa or less is supplied, the performance may decrease and if 0.8MPa or more, HAKKO FX-780/FX-781 may be damaged.

In order to supply compressed air of 0.3 to 0.7MPa, followings are required.

  • Compressor: 0.3MPa or more air pressure and 10L/min or more flow rate.
  • Regulator: Adjustable between 0.3 and 0.7MPa

Maintenance and Life

Perform periodical maintenance of compressor, air dryer, air filter and water filter to keep HAKKO FX-780/FX-781 in good condition.
Check and clean compressor, air dryer, air fiilter and water filter periodically in accordance with the manufacture’s recommendations.

  • Take a special notice of filter to be replaced periodically. If not, flow rate of nitrogen gas may decrease.
  • HAKKO FX-780/FX-781 may be damaged due to intrusion of water, dust, etc.

The life time of HAKKO FX-780/FX-781 is approx. 5 years under the condition of the 8-hours a day / 240 days a year operation, by the use in good condition with periodical maintenance.

NoteWhen the HAKKO FX-780 or HAKKO FX-781 end of life, the high polymer membrane needs to be replaced. As it costs as the same price as purchasing a new one, we would recommend purchasing instead of replacing.

Flowmeter HAKKO FX-791

Features

HAKKO FX-791
Gas flow rate adjustment in 0.25L/min increments makes it easy to select the appropriate gas flow rate.

Usage note

Turn the gas flow control knob to change flow rate.
Use the gas discharge valve to open or close N2 gas.

Maintenance

Operate the flowmeter in accordance with the usage note above.

NoteIf Gas Flow Control Knob is used to open/close the N2 gas, the unit may be broken.

Reference chart for combination of soldering stations and N2 irons

It is possible to set up N2 System using your HAKKO soldering station.
You can have N2 System purchasing a compatible N2 iron and other equipment for the HAKKO station you own.

Required equipment for one soldering iron
N2 generator: HAKKO FX-780 ; Small-capacity type (1 pc) or
HAKKO FX-781 ; Large-capacity type (1 pc)
N2 Flowmeter: HAKKO FX-791 (1 pc)
Other equipments: Regulator, Water filter, Air filter, Air dryer, Compressor

Required equipment for two soldering irons
N2 generator: HAKKO FX-781; Large-capacityi type (1 pc)
N2 Flowmeter: HAKKO FX-791 (2 pcs)
Other equipment: Regulator, Water filter, Air filter, Air dryer, Compressor

In case higher concentrate and larger flowrate of N2 gas are required such as for auto-soldering, 2 units of FX-781 large-capacity type do the job for 1 soldering iron.
