Fit-Line Global fittings demonstrate their leak-free quality by withstanding a three-month copper sulfate thermo pressure test.
At Fit-Line Global, we are committed to delivering cost-effective products that are reliable for practical use in the semiconductor industry. In line with this vision, our standard fittings are specifically designed for high-purity fluid processing applications that meet and surpass industry standards. We provide over 3,000 fittings that are SEMI F57 compliant and manufactured from virgin high-purity PFA or PVDF resin. While we are proud of our commitment to quality, we want to make sure that our products ultimately serve our customers well.
For more than 92 days, we conducted a thermo pressure test on 40 different PFA flare fittings, under the following conditions:
- Liquid: Copper Sulfate, 80% molar solution
- Pressure: 60 psi
- Temperature: 80⁰F
Upon the conclusion of the test, none of the fittings leaked. No leaks are remarkable, because, like frozen water, copper sulfate forms crystals once it encounters oxygen and begins to evaporate. After testing for more than three months, we found that our fittings were not only compatible but also ideal for plating systems using copper sulfate within the semiconductor industry.
“The system worked out well,” said Frank Hayes, president of Fit-Line Global. “We didn’t have any leaks or any impending issue through the whole thermal cycling of everything we did.”
Further, copper sulfate usually runs at a higher temperature, which is why we had to consider thermal cycling to determine the compatibility of the fittings. With that in mind, the results of the test, showing no leaks or thermal issues, demonstrate the quality of Fit-Line Global’s products.
