Circulation heater reduces risk of solvent contamination

December 10, 2004
New circulation heater operates at near 100 percent efficiency while reducing the risk of solvent contamination. The new heater provides a safe and efficient means of heating low flash point solvents, and is particularly suited to the heating of volatile silicon wafer cleaning solvents. Its 316 stainless steel passivated and electropolished solvent tube provides a contamination-resistant surface, ensures compatibility with most semiconductor solvents and features seamless tubing which ensures higher reliability. The self-draining construction feature of the heater eliminates trapped materials that can contaminate processes. UNIVERSAL SOLVENT.
