GF100 Series Metal Sealed Thermal Mass Flow Controllers & Meters

High purity flow path. Outstanding performance, reliability, and repeatability.
Models GF100 / GF101 / GF120 / GF120XSL / GF120XSD / GF121

Fast responding, repeatable delivery of process gases with high and ultra-high levels of purity—that’s the performance the GF100 series of metal sealed mass flow controllers and meters provides. Designed for semiconductor, MOCVD and other gas flow control applications, the GF100 series exceeds the semiconductor industry standard for reliability, ensuring repeatable, highly stable performance over time. Standard MultiFloTM technology enables one MFC to support thousands of gas types and range combinations without removing it from the gas line or compromising on accuracy.

The result: increased process flexibility and efficiency combined with the industry’s highest levels of process gas purity to help maximize yields and productivity.

  • DeviceNetTM, RS-485 L-Protocol and analog interfaces
  • Benefits

    • High-performance components marathon tested to seven times semiconductor industry standards for reliability
    • All metal, corrosion resistant flow path with reduced surface area and unswept volumes ensures faster dry-down during purge steps
    • With MultiFloTM, new process gases and/or ranges can be set in under 60 seconds – no more removing and calibrating MFCs
    • Highly configurable platform enables drop-in replacement and upgrade of most brands of metal sealed MFCs, including the former Celerity, Mykrolis, Tylan and UNIT brands
    • GF120 Safe Delivery System (SDS®) is Brooks’ state-of-the-art low pressure drop mass flow controller for the delivery of sub atmospheric safe delivery system (SDS) gases used in Implant and Etch processes
    • Convenient user display and independent diagnostic/service port aids device installation, monitoring and troubleshooting

    Applications
