MATERIALS: W. L. Gore & Assoc. (Gore) is introducing innovative new cartridge filters for the manufacture of bulk high-purity chemicals used in semiconductor, LCD and electronics fabrication at SEMICON Japan 2009, Chiba, Japan, Dec. 2-4. GORE® Filters for High-Purity Chemical Processors can be used as drop-in replacements for existing filters to achieve flow improvements up to 200 percent compared to the best filter technology currently available. This dramatically increased performance can provide a retention upgrade while maintaining system flow, reducing processing time, or decreasing the number of filters required for a lower total cost of ownership.The new filters offer maximum benefits to high-throughput filling, packaging and recirculation systems for high-viscosity fluids, acids, bases, solvents, specialty chemicals and other high-purity chemicals. The new filters are available in a pore size rating range from 0.1 to 0.03 µm.
GORE® Filters incorporate Gore’s proprietary high-flow PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) filtration media. Gore technology has been used for decades in the world’s best-performing filters for semiconductor, electronics, high-purity chemical and pharmaceutical applications.
The new filters will be displayed at SEMICON Japan by Japan Gore-Tex Inc. (JGI) in Booth 7B-205.
