Are your Applications Vacuum Sensitive and Highly Corrosive?
In the Semiconductor industry, corrosive gases, extreme temperatures, and precision are critical process variables, combined with the ever-increasing need for speed, repeatability, and cleanliness. Count on Swagelok to help you meet your application needs today—and tomorrow. Our ongoing commitment to quality ensures throughput, consistency, and cleanliness—every time.
Aggressive Chemistries Require Superior Materials
Cutting-edge processes demand even greater material characteristics. Swagelok‘s stainless steels and special alloys are engineered and blended to offer the maximum corrosion resistance, strength, and ductility. Our fluoropolymers offer stability at high temperatures, as well as chemical and corrosion resistance.
Supply Chain Control for Superior Cleanliness
We source and manufacture the best materials to ensure consistent quality. We go beyond the expected with processes like passivation and electropolishing for greater material purity. Then we clean and specially package our components to ensure your processes stay clean too.
Our innovations continue to advance semiconductor manufacturing. They include ALD diaphragm valves tested to 100 million cycles, DE series springless diaphragm valves, DRP series fluoropolymer valves, benchmark-setting Swagelok VCR and Micro-Fit fittings, photovoltaic components cleaned and packaged for PV processing, and more.
What do our customers think of our VCR products?
"You make great products, especially the VCR line. My design work involves, among other things, sampling systems for monitoring vacuum processes, especially in semiconductor manufacturing. As such, we often must meet ultrahigh vacuum standards and have to measure impurity levels below one part-per-million, sometimes in corrosive environments. The VCR fitting is the best solution I have found for these applications." says a Chemist from one of our Electrical Manufacturing customers
