Ultipleat® ME Filter

The Ultipleat ME filter has been engineered to provide superior flow rates during deep submicron filtration used in today's HF and BOE recirculation bath processing. The unique combination of Pall's proprietary highly asymmetric membrane and crescent-shaped Ultipleat filter enables an almost 50% increase in flow rates over earlier designs. This breakthrough technology achieves the finest filtration possible with minimal demand on limited pumping capacity. The end result is fast starts, improved particle retention, reduced microbubble potential and improved bath quality.

When operated at ambient temperature, the Ultipleat ME filter is compatible with a wide range of etch solutions and semiaqueous strippers that are primarily HF based1. It is highly recommended for use in SiO2 etch with surfactant and low horsepower internal pumps. The Ultipleat ME filter will pressure wet when used in SiO2 etch without surfactant and with higher horsepower pumps.
  • Excellent retention characteristics
  • Very high flow rates
  • Rapid Bath Turnover
  • Low extractables
  • Ultra low metal ion extractables option
  • 100% integrity tested
  • No prewetting with IPA required
  • Manufactured in a cleanroom environment
1 The Ultipleat ME filter should be tested before installation to determine compatibility.
