Contamination Control, Cleaning and Surface Preparation for Vacuum Applications

Thursday 16th October 2014 | Ricoh Arena, Coventry
Introduction

In vacuum systems, to ensure effective operation and success of the contained process, it is usually necessary to adopt rigorous contamination control and/or cleaning techniques. This is often more important than the selection of the vacuum equipment that is required to achieve the operational vacuum levels, yet it is often the least considered aspect of a vacuum system design.

Legislation has also played a part by restricting the use of effective cleaning agents for either environmental or health and safety reasons and as a result there has been significant developments in this topic in recent years. Cleanliness is important for several reasons; characteristics of a surface may be altered by ‘contamination’, process may be poisoned by ‘contaminants’, quality of deposition may be compromised, to reduce unwanted scattering, to ensure maximum transmission of particles and electromagnetic radiation (in an accelerator for example) and so on.

In this meeting we look at this subject in detail and include the experiences from a number of applications, please join us!
