Is Your Gas Delivery System a Limiting Factor in Total Process Excellence?

Your organization’s success is inseparable from your reputation for efficiency, accuracy and quality. Process excellence is the mark of an industry leader, and upon it rests your ability to deliver for your clients, maximize the success of your operation, and secure your competitive advantage.

The importance of gas quality and purity in achieving process excellence is no secret to organizations in rigorous and precision-driven sectors like semiconductor and electronics, industrial manufacturing, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology, and aerospace and defense. In these industries, the slightest impurity can throw a wrench into business-critical processes—negatively impacting instrumentation, yield, and the quality of output. In fact, in the semiconductor sector, a chip failure can result from a defect that is 1,000,000 times smaller than a grain of sand.1

But while you are focusing on the purity of your molecules, don’t forget to sure up the quality of your systems. The truth is, gas purity and system quality are two sides of the same coin. Without adoption of the proper gas delivery equipment, your rigorous demands for gas purity are virtually unachievable. Unfortunately, for many organizations, gas delivery systems are a limiting factor in total process excellence.

The good news is that they don’t have to be. In fact, high and ultra high purity gas delivery technology has never been so advanced. As the complexity of gas mixtures and process demands continue to rise, our gas delivery systems at AES have risen to the occasion.

At AES, we specialize in delivering high and ultra high purity gas delivery equipment and systems that are engineered to uphold the quality and purity of your business-critical gases. Our two equipment lines, SEMI-GAS® and VERSA-GAS™, lead the industry in reliably meeting the rigorous demands of even the most complex high and ultra high purity applications.

Are your gas delivery systems well-equipped for total process excellence? Consider the questions below to help determine the answer.

  • What is the surface finish roughness average (Ra) of your system’s components?
  • What level of quality assurance testing has been done to validate that your system can uphold your purity requirements?
  • Is your system’s regulator specifically sized to your application’s unique flow range and process requirements?
  • Are your system’s excess flow switches configured for your specific flow and pressure range?
  • Does your system offer the flexibility to configure alarm setpoints?
  • Can you remotely monitor your system’s status and condition?
  • Do your system controllers offer intuitive operator control?
