Question
How do I know what size reflow nozzle to use to rework a component?

Answer

The size of the reflow nozzle depends on your board and the surrounding components. You want your nozzle to surround the component you are reworking without overlapping the adjacent components. We recommend a minimum of 1mm clearance from the component. For example, if your component is 21 x 21mm we would recommend a 23 x 23mm nozzle.
