Versum Materials to exhibit materials and delivery systems for semiconductor manufacturing at SEMICON Korea
Presence marks first trade show appearance since company’s October 2016 spin-off
TEMPE, Ariz. (February 6, 2017) – Now operating as a fully independent, publicly traded company, Versum Materials, Inc. (NYSE:VSM) will showcase its innovative products and services at SEMICON Korea, February 8-10, 2017, at the COEX Conference and Exhibition Center, Seoul.
Exhibiting as Versum Materials Korea (Booth No. 1618, Hall C, 3F), the company plans on displaying two pieces of equipment from its Korean subsidiary Versum Materials HYT, Inc. (VMHYT) that have made Versum Materials one of the semiconductor industry’s largest and most trusted suppliers in Korea. Both pieces of equipment are available only in Korea.
The CHEMKEEPER-URS™ system is a dual tank liquid refill (DTLR) system with automated solvent purge for very low volatility chemicals. Dual precursor tanks maximize uptime to meet the demanding needs of today’s manufacturing fabs. It can also supply solvent to wafer fabrication tools and collect solvent and specialty chemical waste streams from tools. CHEMKEEPER-URS system is an ideal solution for supplying specialty chemicals such as Advanced Cobalt (Co), Titanium (Ti), Hafnium (Hf) and Zirconium (Zr), as well as other organometallic precursors.
PartKeeper™ system is a cylinder cooling system available for use with GASKEEPER™ gas cabinets. Its advanced technology provides extreme cylinder cooling during gas supply and stand-by conditions to prevent chemical decomposition of specialty gases such as Diborane (B2H6), Acetylene (C2H2) and other gases requiring cold-temperature storage. The PartKeeper system can lengthen cylinder life and reduce gas cabinet and downstream component failure caused by gas decomposition.
