White Knight Fluid Handling Inc., a subsidiary of Graco Inc. (NYSE:GGG), announced today that Graco has acquired the business of Imtec, a California-based manufacturer of quartz fluid management and heating equipment for the semiconductor, solar, LED, displays and electronics industries, as well as other markets.
White Knight Fluid Handling Inc., a subsidiary of Graco Inc. (NYSE:GGG), announced today that Graco has acquired the business of Heateflex, a California-based manufacturer of ultra-pure fluid and gas heating equipment for the semiconductor, solar, LED, displays and electronics industries, as well as other markets.
White Knight has released the PSB100 air-operated double-diaphragm (AODD) pump as a direct retrofit replacement for other chemical delivery pumps. PSB100 AODD pumps feature Teflon® PTFE and PFA fluid paths for high-purity chemical delivery, dispense and transfer applications.
White Knight’s recently released pressure vessels offer high-purity chemical dispense with absolutely no pulsation. They provide laminar flow at the point of use and serve as holding or mixing tanks for high-purity chemicals. They feature chemically-resistant PTFE and PFA fluid paths for dispense and mixing applications.
White Knight Fluid Handling is pleased to announce the release of the much-anticipated PEM050 electronic metering pump for chemical replenishing, blending, dosing, and spiking applications. The PEM050 dispense up to 50 ml of high-purity chemical with ±0.01% repeatability at high pressures (60-80 psi). They feature Teflon® PTFE fluid paths and fully supported rolling diaphragms to…
This report compares pressure and flow pulsations from a White Knight closed-loop control system and Levitronix system and evaluates their effect on the retention efficiency of a membrane filter. The White Knight system featured a PSA060 bellows pump; the Levitronix system used a BPS-4 centrifugal pump.
A White Knight PXASD060 bellows pump and Levitronix BPS600 centrifugal pump were run simultaneously in identical recirculation systems. The bath temperature was recorded eight hours. White Knight’s pump maintained a stable fluid temperature. The centrifugal pump heated the fluid bath significantly.
Solid State Technology and SEMI have selected the Closed-Loop Control System as a 2013 Best of West Award finalist. The closed-loop system provides complete control of high-purity chemical processes and delivery systems with customizable feedback capability to maintain optimum system performance. It is designed to support process tools that require a set flow or pressure at the point of use.
The Closed-Loop Controller (CPC-1) automatically adjusts to maintain a set pressure or flow rate in high purity, closed-loop chemical pumping systems to compensate for variables in wafer processes, such as opening/closing chamber valves or clogging filters. The controlled closed-loop system improves process repeatability, increases chip yields, and simplifies automation to save customers time and resources.…
White Knight’s Cycle Rate Translator (CPT-1) enables pump swap-outs in existing tools. The CPT-1 operates White Knight pumps at their optimal cycle rate and communicates a scaled operational cycle rate to match that expected by the tool. It also manages cycle rate errors and eliminates steady-state cycle rate alarms.
DBA and DBH Series in-line and top-mount pulse dampeners augment the capabilities of White Knight high purity pumps. They reduce pulsation in fluid systems to improve flow control, increase batch yields, protect filters, fittings and pipes, and minimize downtime for system repairs. DBA and DBH Series dampeners operate in temperatures up to 100°C (212°F) and 145°C (293°F), respectively.
PSD Series air-operated double-diaphragm pumps, or AODD pumps, for industrial chemical, semiconductor, solar, LEDs and flat-panel display manufacturing markets offer improved performance, optimized efficiency, simplified maintenance, and reduced noise levels. Their leak-proof, icing-resistant plastic design provides constant, reliable, and safe operation – even with the most corrosive chemicals. PSD Series pumps are available in…
White Knight’s high-purity PPM100 pneumatic metering pumps feature Teflon® PTFE fluid paths. They are capable of dispensing up to 100 ml of corrosive media with +/-0.1% repeatability at high-pressure (60-85 psi). The pumps offer adjustable flow rates for use in single-wafer processing tools or premix vessels to ensure exact chemistry mixtures, and they allow for in-situ mixing directly at the head.
White Knight received Utah Psychological Association’s 2012 Psychologically Healthy Workplace Award, which recognizes organizations for workplace practices that create positive work environments. White Knight has dozens of programs intended to improve employee health and well-being, and many also improve the employee performance as well as the company’s products.
White Knight’s AT Series pumps were the world’s first metal-free Teflon® pumps capable of distributing chemistry at temperatures up to 210°C (410°F) in constant or thermal cycling applications. The pumps are capable of air supply pressures up to 4 Bar (60 psi), and they perform safely and reliably for the entirety of their one-year warranty.
White Knight’s Pneumatic Logic® was third place winner of the 1997 DuPont Plunkett Award for Innovation with Teflon® , to recognize outstanding uses of DuPont™ polytetrafluoroethylene (Teflon® PTFE or Teflon® ) fluoropolymers to create inventive market solutions that benefit the environment, showcase extraordinary innovation, or deliver a market-changing applications.
