the pv, ic and flat panel industries all require large volumes of gas dopants for the epitaxial layer. Usually the dopants are mixed at ratios between . 5percent to 5percent in hydrogen h2. As production ramps and gas flow rates increase, traditional gas supplies using cylinders or even a supply of y sized 40. 5 m3 cylinders of the gas mix are a challenge due to cylinder handling, space requirements and inventory costs. In an attempt to reduce these costs for our customers, air products has leveraged its own mixed gas production experience to create an on-site gas blender designed to dynamically blend the mix at your site.
air products' gasguard direct blender was awarded a 2010 golden gas award from gases and instrumentation international.
an advantage of this integrated all in one system over an alternative separate blender and analytical system is that both the mixing process and the continual analysis controls the blend. This also makes the system more cost-effective since it is driven by one controller. The system is a smaller scale replica of air products' own dynamic blend production plant located in choenan, korea. This offering is designed with real world, production experience.
amongst our peers in the gas industry, air products consistently demonstrates world class performance in preventing injuries. We continue to deliver record low recordable rates and are on a mission to be an industry leader in safety by continually reducing our injury rates.
