Importance of Gas Manifolds in Semiconductor Assembly

In semiconductor manufacturing, a key consideration is whether components will transport potentially harmful and corrosive chemicals in the form of gasses or liquids. For such requirements, we often recommend employing gas manifolds within the delivery systems. These manifolds offer several benefits, notably their ability to accelerate production timelines.

Ensuring Leak-Tight Performance in Gas Manifolds

Our commitment to producing gas manifolds involves rigorous testing at each stage of development to ensure leak-tight performance, thereby guaranteeing that our customers receive reliable, safe, and durable components. We utilize vacuum coupling radiation (VCR) metal-to-metal seal connections, which are crucial for preventing leaks.

Metal Manifolds

Custom Configurations and Dry Process Completion

Gas delivery systems are tailored based on client specifications, including assistance in the design phase if required. These systems are uniquely completed using dry processes to avoid any moisture exposure until after installation and testing. This ensures that the only liquid the system encounters post-installation is the designated chemicals it is meant to transport. 

Additionally, we employ in-house techniques to prevent the accumulation of residual chemicals within the system during operation.

For systems requiring temperature control, we have developed capabilities to build heated systems using special heating tape wrapped around the tubing and valves, ensuring chemicals remain fluid during transfer.

Benefits of Choosing Gas Manifolds for Semiconductor Projects

Choosing gas manifolds for your semiconductor projects offers numerous advantages:

  • Compact design: Reduces the hardware footprint.
  • Scalability: Allows for future expansion with additional gas manifolds or lines.
  • Efficiency: Enables quicker assembly and faster checks for potential leaks.
  • Customization: Provides custom fittings tailored to specific setups.
  • Simplicity: Facilitates simple maintenance and straightforward installation into existing systems.
  • Control: Offers centralized system management for better control over gas or chemical outputs, rates, and pressures.
  • Consistency: Designed for consistent and repeatable use.
  • Cleanliness: Ensures a cleaner overall system, crucial in semiconductor manufacturing where cleanliness directly impacts component quality.
