HATFIELD, Pa. (October 10, 2016) – Several experts in mass flow measurement, control and vaporization technologies from Brooks Instrument participated in an informative industry seminar recently at the Institute for Electronics and Nanotechnology(IEN) at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
Entitled “Introduction to Low Flow Measurement and Control,” the seminar was presented in conjunction by Brooks Instrument and Cross Instrumentation as part of the IEN Industry Seminar Series. Brooks Instrument professionals with many years of hands-on application experience gave lectures and demonstrated mass flow measurement, mass flow control and liquid vaporization technology.
“Low flow, high-purity gas and liquid systems play a critical role in manufacturing today’s high-quality products more efficiently in industries such as semiconductor, LED, fiber optic, solar, glass coating and many others,” said Nigel Glover, Brooks Instrument regional sales manager. “Our goal was to help attendees understand the capabilities of the current generation of mass flow technology and apply the instruments more effectively for their industry or research needs.”
Participants had the opportunity to learn about and discuss the latest developments in mass flow control and vaporization for high-purity applications like semiconductor and electronics manufacturing, analytical research, bioengineering and bioscience.
The seminar covered the basic elements and functions of mass flow controllers; technology advancements driving increased productivity and throughput rates; and future technology developments. Brooks Instrument experts also presented an overview of liquid and gas vaporization processes, and the benefits associated with using direct liquid injection technology to create pure vapors with no liquid carryover or thermal decomposition.
The IEN was established to enable and provide visibility to interdisciplinary electronics and nanotechnology-related training, education and research at Georgia Tech by faculty and students, external academics, government researchers, and industry partners.
The IEN is one of 16 sites of NSF’s National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure (NNCI) network, which provides access to state-of-the-art nano-fabrication and -characterization equipment and expertise, and serves as a nationwide resource for nanoscale research and education to lead to continuing technical innovations and economic and societal benefits.
Seminar attendees also had the opportunity to tour the IEN’s shared user laboratories, which are used by the Georgia Tech community, industry, other academic institutions and government agencies for research, characterization, measurement and testing projects.
“We are honored that the IEN invited us to participate in this seminar and share our insights and expertise,” Glover said. “At Brooks Instrument, we continue to support the world’s universities and government labs by participating in events like these, helping ensure that the instrumentation we build contributes to innovative new products and technologies that benefit businesses and communities across the globe.”
