Conax to attend SEMICON China and showcase our fittings, feedthroughs and temperature sensors

Visit Conax at SEMICON China March 14-16

We’re excited to have a booth at SEMICON China in Shanghai, coming up on March 14-16.

We’ll be exhibiting how we can help solve the most complex challenges with both standard and one-of- a-kind sensors, including:

  • Profile and Spike Thermocouples
  • Epitaxial Sensors
  • Sensors for Flat Panel Glass Production Ion Implant Thermocouples
  • Thermocouples for Barrel Reactors

You can also get a first-hand look at our exclusive, patent-pending coating that extends the life of quartz sheath thermocouples in ASM EPSILON® reactors. Talk to us about EtchDefender™ and find out how:

  • Longer life equals lower spend
  • Less reactor downtime eliminates one to two maintenance cycles
  • Wafer throughput is increased by 2 to 5%
  • Wafer quality is improved by minimizing likelihood of wafer contaminants
  • No change to your susceptor ring or recipe is necessary

Conax to attend Power-Gen International in Las Vegas

Largest Gathering of Power Professionals Takes Place December 5-7

We’re off to Las Vegas December 5-7 to talk trends, new technology and problems facing the power generation industry. We’ll join 1,400 exhibitors at the largest gathering of power professionals worldwide.

Attendees will learn from power generation experts about cutting costs, reducing risk and maximizing efficiency.

Eliminating premature sensor failures

At this year’s show, we’re exhibiting our patented Spring Loaded Exhaust Gas Sensor. Standard exhaust gas sensors in 7F and 9F gas turbines are at risk for premature failure. As temperatures rise, the radiation shield and sensor sheath expand at different rates, forming a gap between the seat and the radiation shield and the stop on the sensor. The sensor vibrates and the tip eventually breaks, causing the sensor to fail and the gas turbine to trip.

Conax created the Spring Loaded Exhaust Gas Sensor, featuring a high-temperature compression spring that is inserted between two spacer tubes. The spring minimizes vibration, which means the sensor is less likely to fail and break. This solution has proven to increase sensor life and provide thousands of hours of operation without failures, preventing down time and saving money. Click here to view a video demo.

Conax will be at SEMICON Europa with EtchDefender™ Technology

We’re headed to Munich, Germany from November 14-17 to SEMICON Europa. This is an exciting event, as it’s an opportunity to exchange ideas about electronics with experts from all over the world.

Extending the life of thermocouples

We’re proud to bring EtchDefender™ to SEMICON Europa. This patent-pending technology, developed by Conax, extends the life of quartz thermocouple sheaths in certain epitaxial reactors. With Conax’s patent-pending EtchDefender™ coating, quartz items exposed to temperatures up to 1200˚C and Hydrochloric etch cleaning cycles last up to 3x longer, reducing the frequency of maintenance cycles required to keep tools up and running.

See how EtchDefenter™ can extend the life of thermocouples
