All Resources For GORE® Bulk High Purity Chemical Filters

Overview

GORE Bulk High Purity Chemical Filters are engineered to improve product quality in the microelectronics and semiconductor industries while optimizing cost of ownership. These filters are ideal for processing bulk high purity and ultrapure electronics grade chemicals used in the manufacturing of:

  • Semiconductors
  • Flat panel displays (FPD), LCD, LED, OLED, AMOLED, Plasma
  • Hard disk drive (HDD) and data storage
  • Solar and photovoltaics (PV)
  • Silicon wafers

Applications

GORE Filters can improve efficiency in these applications:

  • Recirculation
  • Final filtration
  • Packaging: Drum filling, bottle filling, ISO-tainers,
    IBC-filling, truck-filling
  • Chemical distribution

Fluids:

  • Acids, bases, solvents, specialty chemicals
  • High viscosity fluids
  • Wet etch and clean chemicals, and specialty blends
  • Aqueous and other higher surface tension fluids
