Development of a fundamental understanding and advanced process analytical capability in support of nitrogen trifluoride chamber cleaning, which led to a significant reduction of global warming gas emissions,
CRAWLEY, England -- BOC Edwards South Africa (Proprietary) Limited has received two NOSA International awards in recognition of performance evaluations and audits conducted in 2004 at a nitrogen trifluoride (NF3) production facility the company manages in Pelindaba, South Africa.
For example, Air Products is actively involved in the emerging hydrogen economy and fixed and mobile fueling infrastructure, gas-to-liquids and liquefied natural gas technologies, ion transport membrane syngas and oxygen technologies, electronic materials for energy efficient light emitting diodes, high efficiency burner systems for glass and steel manufacturing, and nitrogen trifluoride for reducing perfluorocarbon emissions in semiconductor manufacturing.
The SpectraSure delivery equipment features the BOC Edwards intelligent Gas Source Controller (iGSC) control system, and is designed to support start-up and on-going production for nitrous oxide (N2O) and nitrogen trifluoride (NF3) processes.
Under the terms of this agreement, Air Products will supply bulk quantities of high-purity nitrogen trifluoride, silane, nitrous oxide and hexafluoroethane to the recently expanded Austin operation.
Fluorine gas supplied in this way offers a substantial reduction in the cost of supply compared with other perfluorocarbons, such as nitrogen trifluoride, for cleaning CVD (chemical vapor deposition) chambers used in the manufacture of TFT-LCD flat panel screens.
Nitrogen Trifluoride (NF3) production facility, a move triggered by growth in the global electronics industry.
Transactions involving nitrogen trifluoride (NF3), a much-in-demand specialty gas used in the global semiconductor industry, led as the most actively traded product over 16,000 pounds sold.
Air Products announced today that it has been selected to supply nitrogen, oxygen, nitrogen trifluoride (NF3), ammonia (NH3), argon, and silane by pipeline to Samsung's newest Thin Film Transistor-Liquid Crystal Display (TFTLCD) factory located in Tangjung, Korea.
