GORE® Cartridge Filters Are Redefining Filtration Performance at SEMICON West 2010 in Booth 2220
San Francisco, CA (July 12, 2010)--W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc. (Gore) is featuring new cartridge filters that can dramatically improve process performance and reduce the total cost of filtration for ultrapure water (UPW) and de-ionized (DI) water used in the manufacture of semiconductors and silicon wafers as well as for high-purity bulk chemicals used in semiconductor fabrication and other microelectronics manufacturing processes at SEMICON West 2010, July 13-15, Moscone Center, San Francisco, California, in Booth 2220.
Gore has used its unique expertise in ePTFE (expanded polytetrafluoroethylene) material and membrane technology to engineer a family of filters that can dramatically reduce the total cost of filtration, improve water quality, and provide protection against upstream system upsets for ultrapure water (UPW) and de-ionized (DI) water used in the manufacture of semiconductors and silicon wafers. These filters offer 3x the flow rate of best-in-class filters without sacrificing particle retention, can be easily substituted for filters in the field, and can provide a more economical alternative to expensive ultrafiltration (UF) modules for most applications.
For high-purity bulk chemicals used in semiconductor fabrication and other microelectronics manufacturing processes, the substitution of GORE® Filters can enable dramatically improved product quality, increased production capacity and reduce the total cost of filtration of high viscosity fluids, acids, bases, solvents and specialty chemicals.
