Engineering Services: How to Move Gas in a Small Space

by Oct 17, 2017Engineering and Design

Semiconductor manufacturing facilities often find themselves up against a number of operational challenges, some of which cause repercussions that are challenging to fix. One of these is the ability to move gas within a small space. On any given day, the industry employs a variety of different gases in production processes—some of which can be extremely hazardous to human health. Proper gas handling is an essential piece of the puzzle, but for engineers who are dealing with tight spaces, coming up with a tidy and workable solution is oftentimes easier said than done.

While moving gases in small spaces can be a challenge, it doesn’t have to be a procedural roadblock. The answer can often be found in precision tube bending—one of the most advanced engineering services available to the industry today.

The Challenge

For engineers who are working to incorporate gas delivery systems into their systems or workspaces, the options for commonly available materials are relatively slim. Working in a tight space, such as one which snakes sharply around a corner or offers minimal workable free area can be next to impossible when pre-cut straight tubing of specified lengths is the only available option. While welding is an option, joints, elbows and fittings take up a good deal of space. So, how exactly can engineers in semiconductor manufacturing and chemical manufacturing work around this problem? Precision tube bending may be the answer..

The Solution

Precision tube bending allows metal and plastic tubing to be arranged in a way that straight tubes would simply be incapable of. By utilizing bending tools, hand benders and/or automated CNC bending machines, bends of practically any diameter can be performed using a variety of metals or plastics to create tubing solutions designed to fit like a glove in the space they’re allotted.

There are a variety of reasons to consider custom-bent tubing for gas handling. For one, it helps to reduce costs while also saving on space—two factors that engineers are constantly faced with when challenged with how to move gases or liquids. Thanks to state-of-the-art bending tools, leaks are unlikely to ever become a problem. Finally, precision-bent tubes have an elegant, attractive finish.

Axenics: Your Precision Tube Bending Experts

At Axenics, we specialize in precision tube bending using of a variety of different metals, including stainless steel, Inconel, titanium, copper, aluminum and a number of alloys. We also bend plastic tubing, including PTFE, Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride (CPVC), Polypropylene (PP), and more.

Capable of bending tube ranging from 1/16” to 2”, our expert technicians are highly trained and work to ensure accurate, leak-free bends—no matter how complex the project may be. From complex assemblies and specialty piping kits to gas panels/cabinets and more, Axenics has the expertise needed to help you move gasses through a wide range of manufacturing scenarios.

Don’t let the threat of leaks, congested spaces or logistical nightmares cause you headaches in your search for the right solutions. With engineering services from Axenics, the bends do all the work, supporting your designs and ingenuity the whole way through.
