March 1, 2007. T-M Vacuum Products has announced today that the second of two advanced high purity, high temperature vacuum furnaces successfully completed exhaustive customer trials at their facility. This unit and it’s twin will be used for the processing of Ultra High Purity (UHP) materials for the electronics industry.
In order to achieve the customers high standards for process purity T-M Vacuum engineered enhancements into their standard Performer Series vacuum furnace. Starting with the all stainless steel chamber which is standard they increased the high vacuum pumping speeds by a factor of three to attain true high vacuum levels though out the critical initial portion of the process cycle. A gas purification system was used to insure that all process gases used subsequently had a contamination level measured at the parts per billion level (ppb). The high temperature hot zone (1800C) was an all metal fabrication to reduce any particulate contamination that characterizes graphite insulation.
Rennie Wessner VP of Operations at TM commented “We were capable of producing this unit because we listened to what the customer required and used our standard computer controlled Performer series system as a base. The high temperature uniformity of +/-3C is what the customer really wanted to attain in an ultra pure atmosphere. By using the Performer we were able to meet our customer’s unique needs while still being able to guarantee performance”.
The second unit will shortly join its’ twin at the customer’s facility located in the CIS. Both units will be operational in Q2 2007 and are capable of being integrated into the customer’s factory LAN.
