This product portfolio fulfils the requirements in the various Solar applications, either as stand-alone products or as a combination of products together with piping, frames, accessories etc. for turnkey solutions.

STAND ALONE SOLUTIONS

EBARA’s Roots pumps (e.g. ESR80WN) ideally fit the needs for poly silicon production. EBARA’s screw pumps like AAS100WN / EST100WN   meet the harsh process requirements for SiN and diffusion processes. EBARA’s G5 burner washer abatement system is the state-of-the-art technology, e.g. for POCl3 abatement in SiN processes.

OEM AND TURNKEY SOLUTIONS

EBARA’s AA200WN, ESA500WN, ESR300WN and ESR500WN Roots pumps can be combined to big pumping stations to pump down the heavy gas load of equipment for TCO processes and for amorphous/microcrystalline tandem thin film layer formation. These pumps provide the highest customer benefit in terms of uptime, energy consumption and cost of consumables.

On the abatement side for TCO and tandem thin film layer formation, the burner washer type G5 abatement and the silane dynamic oxidizer S-DOC, combined with a particle filter are the most advanced solution ensuring maximum uptime and ease of waste removal.

A very specific solution of abatement technology is required for H2S/H2Se removal in CIS processes. The tool of choice to ensure the safe handling of toxic H2Se is an Airgard water scrubber, combined with a taylor-made waste water treatment system to neutralize the toxicity.
