We provide fire safety recommendations for industry improvements, equipment fire safety risk assessment and consulting, and system inspections and audits – regardless of size and scope of the requirement.
Wet benches that are made from materials that are not FM4910 compliant, require proper fire safety systems, even if the chemicals in use are not flammable. If you have a wet bench that is not made from FM4910 compliant material, then you need a fire detection and suppression system for that tool.
High purity metalorganic precursors are widely used in semiconductor manufacturing, in the production of integrated circuits and devices. These once exotic chemistries are now a standard part of various doping and deposition processes. Semiconductor-grade metalorganics are highly-refined for use as precursors in silicon and compound semiconductor industry processes.
Linear Heat Detection (LHD) is a versatile and economical fire detection method, designed for use in a wide variety of fire and heat detection applications. Linear heat detection cable is particularly suited for harsh environmental conditions where maintenance access is in an area where there is a requirement to cost-effectively install fire detection in close proximity to a potential hazard. LHD is ideal for semiconductor wet tool exhaust plenum areas, plumbing and wiring areas, and other areas of a semiconductor wet tool, where excessive cost or poor visibility renders flame detectors impractical.
Fire safety systems designed to protect semiconductor manufacturing equipment typically use flame detectors to alert the presence of a fire in a semiconductor tool. These critical devices are a very important part of a semiconductor equipment fire suppression system. There are many different kinds of flame detectors, and it is important to use the right kind of flame detector, and to have it installed in the right place in the tool. Flame detectors are designed to see the heat signatures that are created by flames. Different fuel sources create different flame signatures. It is important that a fire safety system is designed with a flame detector that can see potential flame signatures fueled by the respective chemistry in a semiconductor process tool.
