Improve Yield and Reduce Risk

Fine particulate and Airborne Molecular Contamination (AMC) need to be carefully controlled for high-yield, low-reject semiconductor manufacturing. 

Sources of AMC include: 
  • chemical off-gassing
  • exhaust fumes from other industries and processes
  • vehicle exhaust fumes
  • seasonal factors
Failures due to AMC are classified as:
  • Mechanical effects, including obstruction of cooling airflow, interference of moving or optical parts and deformation of surfaces.
  • Chemical effects include corrosion of electrical components, due to dust comprised of sulphur and chlorine bearing salts.
  • Electrical effects include impedance changes and electronic circuit conductor bridging.

Guidance From Industry Leaders

AAF International engineers are active in standardisation committees in both the United States and Europe. We play an important role in establishing new standards and recommending practices for cleanroom applications. As an example, our engineers were key contributors in developing and writing the Institute of Environmental Sciences and Technology Recommended Practices. This professional competence is reflected in the design, manufacture, and testing of each cleanroom filtration solution we produce. The result is cleanroom filters engineered and assembled to give you the particulate removal you require, while delivering energy efficiencies and savings to your bottom line.

Looking for Help in Optimising Your Environment? Here is How We Can Help:

A thorough air filter audit of your HVAC Systems is the first step that AAF International takes in order to provide you with professional guidance and analysis for cost savings and liability reduction. Our aim in conducting this audit is to better understand your current state and your complete air filtration needs, applications and goals for total air quality. This customised air filtration survey costs you nothing and could give you significant benefits by helping you reduce risks and save both money and time.
