One of the world’s largest digital memory and storage solutions companies faced high operational costs supplying particle-free air to its wafer manufacturing cleanrooms. The customer’s fan filter units (FFUs) used traditional glass ULPA units — which can drive up energy costs due to resistance. They’re also prone to damage during filter handling, storage, installation and maintenance.
The customer installed 1,166 AstroFan FFUs and MEGAcel II ePTFE ULPA 4'x4' filters for their U.S. facility.
Energy savings of $340K+ are anticipated over a five-year period. The durability of the ePTFE filters also promises significant cost savings over traditional glass media. That’s thanks to fewer replacements of damaged filters as well as the need to stock extra inventory, which can add up to 10% of the installed quantity. To increase savings even more, the customer and AAF will also replace another 1,100 FFUs with AstroFan FFUs with MEGAcel ll ePTFE ULPA filters in the same facility.
