The importance of CDA - clean dry air
Certified oil-free air for semiconductor industry
Innovative technologies require more and especially better air quality. Our range of compressors deliver certified oil-free air. Our Z series of compressors were the first air compressors to achieve TÜV certification as “oil-free” (ISO 8573-1 CLASS 0). Additionally, we are the only compressor manufacturer to have received ISO 22000 certifications.
Energy recovery in electronics production
The production process of semiconductors and electronics is an extremely energy intensive process. Our solutions give huge opportunities to recover this energy. Heat is an inevitable by-product of air compression, with our energy recovery units you can reuse up to 90% of this otherwise lost energy. Reducing the production costs significantly as well as reducing your environmental footprint. Read more on Energy Recovery
A reliable partner brings peace of mind
Reliability in your compressed air supplier is key. Clean dry air is a critical utility for semiconductor plants and having any interruptions can be disastrous. Our global service network is installed in more than 180 countries, this means that lead times are very short and minimizes any downtime if maintenance is required.
Applications of compressed air in semiconductor and electronic plants
The clean room is the central part of the plant. Any dust or other contaminants must be eliminated in addition to controlling the temperature and humidity of the room. Meaning compressed air must be class 0 oil-free air to avoid any contamination.
Paterning or photolitography is the process by which a specific pattern is imprinted on the wafer.
Instrumentation & pneumatic tools
Compressed air is used for sorting, packaging, testing, handling, assembling, etching and more instrumentation or pneumatic applications. Using oil-free air ensure your products will not be contaminated during the production process.
The purging of the vacuum and venturi pumps have to be done with oil-free air to avoid contamination.
Water used during the manufacturing process of an electronics plant must be treated before it can be returned to nature. More on Wastewater Treatment
Soldering electronics with high quality nitrogen, thus nitrogen with a high purity level, has multiple benefits. It delivers improved performance and in addition it also promises environmental benefits.
