NEW - Safely Heat IPA and Flammable Solvents

Product Description

The SHX portfolio of in-line, ultra-high purity heaters is designed to safely heat IPA and low flash-point solvents, meeting the most stringent cleanliness requirements to support next-generation semiconductor node technologies. Suitable for recirculating and single-pass flow requirements, these compact, low-mass heaters deliver fast heat-up with quick responsiveness to flow changes. SHX is the ULTIMATE in ultra-high purity solvent heating! Explosion proof (EX) versions available.


  • Semiconductor wafer cleaning


  • Dedicated Ultra-Pure Flow Path for Advanced Cleanliness (UHP)
    • Class 1 cleanroom assembled
    • Chemistry contained within high-purity PTFE components – no contact with any metals.
    • No wetted o-ring seals eliminate source for contamination.
    • Purge design provides early notification in the unlikely event of fluid path breach.
  • Advanced Heating Design Ensures Safety
    • Indirect heat - heating element is isolated from fluid path for safe heating of flammable chemistries.
    • Low watt density eliminates localized hot spots enabling IPA to be heated to near boiling temperatures without generating gas.
    • Redundant sensors provide proper monitoring of temperature for safe operation.
    • SHX certified to: UL 499 (ETL) and CE (pending), SEMI S2/S3 (pending).
    • Explosion Proof SHX-EX certified to: UL499 (ETL) and CE (pending), SEMI S2/S3 (pending), ATEX II 2 G Ex db IIA T4 Gb (pending).
