Featured Video

Is your semiconductor plant seeking methods to enhance sustainability in wafer manufacturing and water reclamation? The semiconductor sector faces two challenges: waste reduction and water usage. The use of on-line water analytics can assist in overseeing water quality in both wafer manufacturing and reclamation/reuse procedures. This video underscores the significance of monitoring the levels of conductivity, TOC, and microbes to identify impurities that may lead to rejected wafers. Monitoring these parameters also ensures the purity of water to improve wafer quality and yield. Furthermore, this video emphasizes the importance of monitoring the levels of dissolved oxygen, TOC, and pH in waste streams to optimize water recovery.
