NORTH BILLERICA, MA--(Marketwire - Oct 9, 2012) - Mass-Vac, Inc. has introduced a new video that reviews the best filtration solutions for protecting vacuum pumps and systems in highly abrasive manufacturing and wafer processing applications.

The MultiTrap® Vacuum Trap Selection Criteria and Configurations Video reviews the decisions for choosing the correct filtration components for a specific manufacturing process using this flexible, multi-stage vacuum trap. Applications include LPCVD, PECVD, TEOS, silicon germanium, MOCVD gallium nitride, gallium arsenide, aluminum etch, ion implantation, MOCVD indium phosphide, wafer processing, and HVPE gallium nitride.

Because the MultiTrap® Vacuum Trap can be customized by the user to match their particular process requirements, the MultiTrap® Vacuum Trap Selection Criteria and Configurations Video illustrates how the different stages and replaceable filter elements can be used for typical applications, plus a cooling option for heavy condensables and particulates.

About 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. After years of field experience rebuilding vacuum pumps and analyzing the reasons why they failed, along with extensive research and development, the MV Products division was created. MV Products manufactures a complete line of vacuum inlet traps, exhaust traps, mist eliminators, and oil filtration systems for a wide range of manufacturing, laboratory, and commercial applications including universities and hospitals. 

Mass-Vac, Inc. specializes in solving the process contamination problems associated with 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.
