Vacuum Foreline Traps From MV Products for Processes Used in Manufacturing Green Products

NORTH BILLERICA, MA--(Marketwire - March 30, 2011) - MV Products is introducing a line of vacuum foreline traps for manufacturing processes that create large volumes of solid byproducts such as those used for producing solar cells, HB-LEDs, and Li-ion batteries.

MV Vacuum Inlet Traps are ideally suited for MOCVD, HVPE, PECVD, or LPCVD processes used in manufacturing solar cells, HB-LEDs, and Li-Ion batteries which generate high volumes of particulates. Offered in several models to accommodate different manufacturing process applications and volume requirements, they can incorporate a wide range of filters for trapping solids, organic solvents, and other contaminants and protecting vacuum pump systems from oil back streaming.

Featuring user-selectable filter elements, MV Vacuum Inlet Traps include the MV Multi-Trap® which has a knock-down stage plus two stages of filter elements and is capable of up to 2,500 cu. in. of solids accumulation, and the Posi-Trap® for applications up to 50 CFM. Both are offered in several sizes with stainless steel, copper gauze, molecular sieve, activated charcoal, pleated polypropylene (2-, 5- and 20 µm pore sizes), and Sodasorb® filters.

MV Vacuum Inlet Traps are priced according to model and filter element selection. Price quotations are available upon request.

About MV Products division of Mass-Vac, Inc.

Protecting vacuum pumps, people, and the environment, Mass-Vac, Inc. was founded in 1971 to serve customers in need of vacuum pump support and service. The MV Products division was established after years of field experience rebuilding vacuum pumps and analyzing the reasons why they failed, along with extensive research and development. As a result, the firm has developed a complete line of vacuum inlet (foreline) traps, exhaust traps, mist eliminators, and oil filtration systems for a wide range of manufacturing, laboratory, and commercial applications including universities and hospitals.

MV Products specializes in solving the process contamination problems associated vacuum systems that are used with processes such as MOCVD, HVPE, PECVD, or LPCVD which generate high volumes of particulates. These processes, of course, are used in manufacturing green products such as solar cells, HB-LEDs, and Li-Ion batteries. Mass-Vac, Inc. is an active member of SEMI and the American Vacuum Society.
