In the last few entries in this blog series, I’ve written about methods for controlling and regulating gas pressure and flow rates in a gas line with valves, pressure regulators and flow restrictors, but I haven’t yet discussed the gauges and sensors used to actually measure these values. I will cover mass flow controllers in a later blog, but in this and the next entry I...Read more
Two types of gas flow restrictors. In this week’s entry in our blog series exploring the design of high-purity gas panel design for semiconductor fabs, I’ll be covering components called flow restrictors or flow limiters. The subject of last week’s entry was pressure regulators and their utility in proportionally controlling the pressure in a gas line. Flow restrictors share a...Read more
This blog series has been examining the design of gas distribution systems for semiconductor processes. The previous entry focused on the use of diaphragm valves and check valves to activate or deactivate the flow in a length of gas line; this entry will cover the design and application of pressure regulators. Mechanical engineers use these more complicated components to...Read more
Typical "gas stick" in a semiconductor equipment gas panel. In part 6 of our blog series on the design of high purity semiconductor equipment, we'll be discussing gas valves. While mass flow controllers fine-tune the amount of gas delivered to a process, and pressure regulators fine tune the gas pressure, it is the manual and pneumatic valves that control on or off state of gas...Read more
The use of fail-safe hardware safety interlocks is a key tenet of semiconductor equipment engineering, to protect equipment and ensure personnel safety. The idea of fail-safe technology has existed for a long time, however, as engineers through history work to keep progressively more complex machines and operators safe. An inventor named George Westinghouse, for instance, developed the...Read more
For the first parts of this blog series, I wrote about the components and subsystems that makes up a high purity gas distribution system for a semiconductor process: Part 1 concerns gas panels, Part 2 gas storage, and Part 3 abatement and exhaust. But while I’ve covered the components individually, I haven’t looked at the gas lines that fluidically connect them as necessary for a functional...Read more
