Press Release Summary:
Span Lab(TM) Cal Cart generates calibration standards for cleanroom airborne molecular contamination (AMC) monitors to allow facility wide synchronization of AMC data with traceability to NIST. Concentrations from less than 1 ppb to greater than 10 ppm can be produced, while mixtures can be delivered dry or humidified at 20-90% RH. Portable system has 4 independently-controlled channels for delivering standards of multiple analytes and can be operated remotely.
Original Press Release:
Calibration Standards for Clean Room AMC Monitors
Kin-Tek Laboratories, Inc. has introduced a standards generating system for use with Airborne Molecular Contamination (AMC) monitors. The Span Lab(TM) Cal Cart is a multi-channel standards generator designed for clean room service. The Cal Cart system uses Trace Source(TM) permeation (or diffusion) tubes as the source for analyte vapors. The system features four independently controlled channels for delivering standards of multiple analytes. Concentrations from < 1 ppb to > 10ppm can be produced. Mixtures can be delivered dry or humidified at 20 - 90% RH. A dual dilution system gives varying concentrations while maintaining constant output flow.
The Span Lab(TM) Cal Cart is designed for portability within a facility. It is available with internal battery power, and an onboard supply of air or N2 to permit unsupported operation in transit or in remote areas.
Many AMC monitors feature an internal standard for routine calibration checks. The Span Lab(TM) Cal Cart allows facility wide synchronization of AMC data with traceability to NIST through physical standards.
A typical application is calibration for NMP and ammonia in semiconductor micro-lithography facilities. Other applications include calibration for acid gases, sulfur compounds, volatile siloxanes and VOCs in semiconductor and biotechnology clean rooms.
