Using gases can be dangerous. Gas leaks or gas contamination are serious events that can lead to fire, explosion, personal injury or even death. All of these outcomes jeopardize the safety of on-site employees and risk damaging or destroying valuable equipment and property. Additionally, natural gas issues can leave an organization vulnerable to liability and regulatory fines.
Accidents can occur due to operators disconnecting the wrong cylinders, or forgetting to disconnect cylinders and ignoring gas leaks. However, with the right equipment, these errors can be minimized to protect operators and maintain safety.
Gas Safety Standards in Semiconductor Manufacturing
Semiconductor manufacturing is one of the industries that must focus on gas handling safety. Semiconductor factories use a variety of gases in their production processes, making it imperative to ensure worker safety in day-to-day operations. Regardless of the stage of the semiconductor supply chain, vigilance is essential!
WOFLY recommends the following safety precautions when using gases in semiconductor manufacturing:
Identify exhaust hazards and conduct appropriate exposure assessments.
- Identify and evaluate all potential exposure scenarios (e.g., startup, operation, maintenance, cleaning, emergencies).
- Review the end pages of the WOFLY brochure, which contains permissible exposure limits for various substances.
-Provide proper ventilation to reduce airborne gas concentration levels.
-Provide personal protective equipment (PPE) as appropriate to prevent exposure to exhaust gases.
-Use respiratory protection where necessary to further minimize exposure and protect employees.
Choosing the right equipment for your facility is also critical to preventing hazardous gas exposure. The right tools will not only prevent hazardous incidents, but also improve operations and efficiency.
Ensure operator safety with the right equipment
The safety of a wafer fab depends on its equipment and having the right tools is essential to maintain a safe, reliable and efficient process.GAS monitoring boxes are one of the most important pieces of equipment for preventing unintentional gas leaks. However, it is important to choose the ideal version that is durable and proven to work in complex and hazardous environments. WOFLY's GAS monitor box system provides control and monitoring of gas pressure, gas concentration, real-time monitoring and fault alarms for up to 16 channels of simultaneous data, with different hardware configurations based on the data from the different monitoring points, to enhance safety and ensure the safe operation of gas cabinets and gas-using equipment. The monitoring channel can be customized according to the user's needs.
Customize the monitoring channel attributes according to the user's needs, in the main interface, you can see the monitoring value of each channel, and the corresponding alarm situation, when there is an alarm, the corresponding alarm lamp will display red and beep, to protect gas technicians from hazardous production materials, and to protect the integrity of process gases and related equipment. This enhances specialty gas operations.
This monitoring box is recommended for all hazardous gas equipment and specialty gas supply equipment. It is a standard, low-cost option for use with all WOFLY-GCGR gas cabinets that are designed to safely contain hazardous gases. These gas cabinets have been widely used in the semiconductor industry for several years and are known for their quality, reliability, performance and superior safety.
