Critical processes meet viable solutions
Advanced filtration solutions for the Microelectronics industry dwindle operating and maintenance costs, drastically improve equipment OEE and availability, extend chemical life, reduce defects, and maximize product quality and yields.
Pall Filtration Systems have successfully integrated their proven systems in these industries to reduce the cost, increase the reliability and maximize the efficiency of electronic manufacturing processes. As operations have increased in such a degree, particulate, impurity, and contamination control has become extremely critical in order for efficient production processes. Solving these challenges directly impacts operation uptime, maintenance frequency, product quality, life of capital equipment and overall business performance.
Today, new electronic designs are resulting in thinner layers, faster communication, larger storage sizes, and more complex logic. New technologies require extreme cleanliness in the chemicals and systems used to manufacture them efficiently. The industry trend toward faster and smaller products are making the role of filtration even more critical. Electronic manufacturing processes are extremely sensitive to the presence of contaminants and electrical quality can degrade in the slightest presence of molecular impurities or particulates. Impurities such as water and particulates directly impact each step of the process resulting in increased frequency of unscheduled maintenance operations, corrosion on surfaces, costly downtime, and significant reduction in end product electrical quality and performance.
Removing molecular level particles from process gas streams is critical to ensure longevity of capital equipment and result in desired end product electrical quality and performance. To effectively create the integrated electrical systems required for new products, critical process steps need to be free from contamination or defects will occur causing electrical failures and increased costs.
Manufacturing costs are of utmost concern as consumers want access to cheaper and cheaper electronics and in order for producers to compete with cheaper electronics manufacturers. In order for these low prices to be achievable, effective filtering is necessary to extend chemical usage, reduce defects, prolong equipment life, and create stable processes. We have the filtration technology, manufacturing experience and process knowledge to help improve all critical processes used in the microelectronics industry.
We haveworld class filter solutions for the filtration of process gases, slurries, wet etch chemicals, ink jet, solvents, photoresists and many other process consumables. Whether for the initial material process or the final coating process, we have membrane filtration options that remove contaminants to the levels microelectronic producers highly desire.
