Chemical delivery

The platform for the ChemFlex D4 Micro CDM (chemical delivery module) is based on pump-dispense technology and can be configured to provide the levels of flow and purity to meet process requirements. Designed to support all wet processes, including lithography, etch, post-CMP, clean, and other wet cleaning applications, the D4 Micro can scale from a low-flow, single pump-drum dispense unit to a high-flow back-up system for a primary CDM.

For on-site identification of common VOCs in air, water, and soil, the self-contained, portable Voyager utilizes a three-column analytic engine along with PID and ECD detectors to support broad VOC detection requirements. The instrument's method is open and accessible, letting the operator adjust the analytic technique for optimal results in the field. The on-board display enables the user to set method variables and view compound-specific test results, including the actual chromatographs. Photovac Inc. Waltham, MA

Tamper-proof seal

The Iris Damper uses interlocking steel plates and a calibrated control lever to form an adjustable aperture. By measuring differential pressure across the pressure ports, and referring to the matching performance curve, airflow can be determined precisely. Ten sizes are available, from 4 to 32 inches, with capacities to 20,000 cfm. The galvanized steel product is fitted with a neoprene gasket for air-tight mounting. Continental Fan Manufacturing Inc. Buffalo, NY

Filtration system

Opticap XL and XLT disposable capsule filters are available with Viresolve Normal Flow Parvovirus (NFP) membrane to provide dependable viral clearance from recombinant or human plasma sources. Offering greater than 98 percent recovery, the membrane's size-exclusion technology clears parvovirus by a log value of four. Comprising patented PVDF material, the membrane's pore structure reportedly allows flow rates 6 to 10 times faster than other filters. The disposable capsule filters are thermal and hydraulic stress resistant, adjustable, and designed for easy installation with upstream vents and drain valves. Milllipore Billerica, MA

FOUP cleaner

The automated Process One FX30 cleaning system is designed to reduce FOUP contamination from human interaction and has robotic controls that transport FOUPs through the cleaning process. The robot and cleaning system sit inside an individual cleanroom environment to prevent contamination throughout the process. The system features patented technology that isolates the cleaning media used inside the FOUPs from the cleaning media used outside, preventing contamiation migration between surfaces. Entegris Inc. Chaska, MN
