UBE RID

Dry-etching exhaust gas treatment equipment
UBE RID

Outline

This equipment efficiently renders the various toxic gases emitted during the semiconductor manufacturing process chemically and physically harmless. It includes indicators showing when replacement is necessary. Load cells and gas detectors inform the operator when this is necessary.

UBE RID is a registered trademark in Japan.

Features

Dry treatment system
There is no clogging because this is a totally dry treatment system.
Improved safety for clients' manufacturing processes
There is no fear of heat release accidents because the gas is chemically treated. . This also makes it safe in the event of traffic accidents while transporting. UBE RID for treating toxic gases using an absorption method is also available separately.
Digital display of treatment volume
Throughput can be determined at a glance thanks to the load cell, even while using the system, making it easy to decide when replacement is required.
Two-stage warning system for replacement timing
When it is time for replacement, the operator will be informed by an audible alarm and lamp. At the same time, replacement time can be determined using the indicators.
Small pressure loss
No heavy burden is placed on the pump because the system was designed for small-pressure flow.
Simple connection
Gas can be introduced from either the top or bottom depending on the model of the treatment system used, and there is no need for major piping work.
Wide applicability
Target gases include chlorine chemicals, such as BCl3, Cl2, SiCl4, and HCl, bromate chemicals, such as HBr, BBr3, and the byproducts of fluorine gas (HF, SF4, SiF4, and SOF2).

Uses

Detoxification and particle treatment of toxic gases emitted from dry-etching systems and other manufacturing facilities, as well as from cylinder cabinets.

Target Gases

  • Chlorine chemicals (HCl,Cl2,BCl3,SiC4 etc.)
  • Bromate chemicals (HBr,Br2,BBr3 etc.)
  • Byproducts of fluorine gas (HF,SiF4,SF4 etc.)

Basic Principle

Reaction method
Treatment agent
  • Metal oxide
  • Gases react with the metal oxide and are then processed as a metal halide.
Adsorption method
Treatment agent
  • Active carbon and impregnated charcoal
  • Gases are processed by physical and chemical adsorption.

Indicators

1-stage method

Color change by acidic gas

Before use→Spent

2-stage method

Color change by acidic gas and chlorine

Before use→Spent
*
Indicators change color even under the presence of 0.1ppm gas.
*
Color changes other than those shown above may result depending on the type of gas.
When the entire indicator has changed color, consider it a sign that the treatment agent is spent.

Pressure resistance

This system is not pressure resistant, so do not apply pressures of 0.1kg/cm2 or greater.

Replacement System

Replacement System
  • Even if the treatment agent is not spent, it should be replaced after four months of use for the sake of system longevity and safety.
  • A returned system will normally be sent back within three weeks.
  • A spent treatment agent is taken and disposed of by a firm licensed to dispose of industrial waste.
  • A spent treatment agent is handled as industrial waste once it is removed by UEL, a subsidiary of UBE, eliminating the need for users to deal with troublesome procedures.

Warranty Period and System Lifetime

  • The system is expected to last one year.
  • The system's lifetime will differ depending on usage. Note that repairs requested for deterioration or rupturing of pipes or other parts due to corrosion are not free of charge.

Housing

Features

  1. Pressure monitoring is possible at the RID system entry.
  2. If a blockage occurs, an alarm sounds and the bypass route opens to prevent an accident.
  3. Even if there is a gas leak, the housing will suck it up, minimizing leak accidents.
  4. A temperature sensor, indicator alarm, and gas detector can be installed, and an interlock function can be added.

Single type

Single type

Dual Type

Dual Type

A dual-type is handy if you want to continuously operate an etching machine. Self-switching or manual switching can be selected. A pump housing area can also be added.
