Gas purifiers

The semiconductor fabrication process involves a variety of source gases and carrier gases. For the fabrication of higher quality semiconductors, our complete line of gas purifiers allows the user to select the optimal solution for the type of gas used.

Normal-temperature adsorption gas purifierModel-VPE  AN/AAR/AHE/AH/AAM

Japan Pionics is a pioneer of gas purifiers with the state of the art gas purification technologies and a broad range of technologies acquired through many years of experience. VPE-Series Gas Purifiers are developed by Japan Pionics to deliver the ultimate gas purity and incorporate environmental and safety features that provide security and reliability.

The use of an original catalyst developed by our company allows gas purification to high levels of purity.

For switching between the purification series, it is possible to set the optimal series switching time for the source gas flow rate and concentration of impurities.

 It is also possible to switch the series based on the total flow, the switching time is longer when lower flow speeds are used, saving energy.

Space-saving installation (18% less than our other products) *1

The maintenance spaces are generally in front of and behind the equipment, allowing other equipment to be installed directly on either side of this equipment. 

(However space for the earthquake-resistant fittings is necessary.) Conforms to various standards (SEMI, ASME, ML, others).
