PhotoKleen™ EZD-3X Filter Capsules product photo Primary L

PhotoKleen™ EZD-3X Filter Capsules

The PhotoKleen™ EZD-3X filter is designed for small-volume dispense systems, which have the smallest footprint. The PhotoKleen™ EZD-3X filter has almost double the filter area (compared to the PhotoKleen™ EZD-3 filter) in the same capsule size. This allows for lower pressure drop during filtration or allows the installation of finer filtration at the same pressure drop. Two filter media types are available, Asymmetric Nylon 6,6 and HDPE. The naturally hydrophilic Nylon 6,6 membrane allows for spontaneous wettability, and its polarity has been shown to lower defectivity on the patterned wafers. The XP option is available for advanced lithography processes.

Features and Benefits

  • Double the filter area in the same size capsule (Ref. PhotoKleen™ EZD-3 filter)
  • Easy change out style filter assembly
  • Two membrane material types available
  • Minimized hold-up volume, and top in / top out flow direction with side conduit for laminar filling
  • Offers lower pressure drop for higher viscosity fluids
  • Reduces tool down time by extending filter change outs
  • Optimized media selection for target applications
  • Minimized organic extractables by XP treatment for rapid start-up and reducing chemical wastes.
  • XP option guarantees low organic, metal and particle cleanliness for the most advanced processes.

PhotoKleen™ EZD-3X filters are designed to fit into all PhotoKleen™ EZD-3 head manifolds
