ANSUL® SAPPHIRE® Clean-Agent Fire Suppression Systems are clean-agent fire suppression systems that are designed for use in protecting against fire hazards in occupied or non-occupied where electronic or other equipment is sensitive, and might be damaged by water sprinkler, mist, or other fire suppression agents. These sophisticated fire safety systems are particularly useful for suppressing fires in hazards where an electrically non-conductive medium is essential or desirable, where clean up of other agents presents a problem, or where the hazard is normally occupied and requires a non-toxic agent. The ANSUL® SAPPHIRE® Clean-Agent Fire Suppression System utilizes 3M Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid as the suppression agent.
Why even bother having a fire safety system, if it’s not going to work? Why buy one if it is going to become defective in a few months’ time? At KFPI, we realize how bothersome fire safety systems can be. We understand how challenging it is to maintain a semiconductor process line. Having to worry about a fire safety system is an added responsibility that few people desire to shoulder. We get it! We really do. But please don’t underestimate the importance of having one, and having one that works.
Fire is one of the gremlins of semiconductor process equipment. Great thought and energy have been dedicated to the task of designing process tools that have the lowest probability for fire hazard. But, all of the elements for equipment fire are still rooted in the reality incompatibles like heat, electricity, and flammable chemistries in ample quantities.
Time and time again, “multidisciplinary” research is touted as essential to innovation. That is why, from April 13-17, 2020, researchers working in seemingly unrelated fields will gather in Phoenix, Arizona, to promote, share and discuss issues and developments across disciplines. The 2020 MRS Spring Meeting & Exhibit is the key forum to present research to an interdisciplinary and international audience.
Spring Du is the General Manager of KFPI operations in Asia, based in the Songjing District of Shanghai, China. She heads all KFPI sales, service, and logistical responsibilities in Asia. The primary function of the KFPI office in China is to support our front line operations with seasoned semiconductor technicians throughout China and the rest of Asia. Spring Du oversees the complex logistics of managing KFPI’s global fire safety solution installations in Asia, and the infrastructure required to maintain this operation.
The 42nd Annual International High Technology ESH Symposium & Exposition of the Semiconductor Environmental, Safety & Health Association (SESHA) is an educational and research forum. The meeting includes symposia, posters, special programs and workshops, as well as contributed papers in topical sessions. The 2020 Meeting will run from April 13–17 at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Scottsdale Resort in the heart of beautiful Scottsdale, Arizona.
On this Valentine’s Day, we hope that you will find an allowance of romance that fills your heart with a renewed warmth. Whether your day of love is filled with the amorous pangs of Eros, devotional ardor to friends, family, or faith, or noble veneration of the wonders of existence, we wish you a brief respite from a sometimes frigid and indifferent world.
