It’s important for everything to be precise with the semiconductor manufacturing process. Contamination, temperature variance, and other variables can ruin the process. Powerblanket® products can play a vital role in maintaining specialty gas flow rates during semiconductor manufacturing.
Semiconductor Manufacturers Must Keep Gases Flowing Consistently by Maintaining Gas Temperature in Delivery Systems
Each semiconductor manufacturer has its own precise processes and carefully controlled conditions for producing semiconductors. Many of these processes involve heating specialty gases to a precise temperature and maintaining the gas delivery system temperature throughout the operation. If the temperature of the specialty gas were to drop by as little as two degrees, the entire manufacturing process could be compromised.
While temperature isn’t the only factor, gas flow rates, are heavily dependent on temperature. Maintaining the temperature in the gas delivery system at the precise degree allows for consistent flow rates and uncompromised accuracy and consistency.
How Do Powerblanket Gas Cylinder Heating Products Help to Maintain Specialty Gas Flow Rates?
When it comes to the semiconductor manufacturing industry, Powerblanket products have a lot to offer. Our specialty gas cylinder heaters and specialty gas tank heaters allow for precise and consistent temperature control. When paired with a temperature controller, Powerblanket specialty gas cylinder heaters can keep any gas, at the proper temperature for as long as needed.
A Short Case Study on Powerblanket and Gas Flow Rate Maintenance during the Semiconductor Manufacturing Process
A large semiconductor manufacturing company was searching for new products to improve their semiconductor manufacturing process. They needed to maintain their gas flow more precisely, and their existing solution (silicone heaters) was not consistent enough.
Powerblanket designed a specialty gas heating product that maintained the precise temperature and flow rate for hydrocarbon gases that the company was looking for.
The Company’s management team later mentioned that they were against the idea of switching to the Powerblanket specialty gas heating solution when it was proposed to them. They said, “We didn’t think it would work because it was half the power of the status quo product, but after we gave it a try, we were immediately sold…It’s a fantastic product and the sales and engineering support we received was excellent”
