Valves & Controls for Semiconductor Fabs
Executive Summary: Engineered thermoplastic valves, automatic controls, and specialty piping components that provide performance, longevity, and value that is superior to all other brands. Standard and custom products that solve pressure and flow control problems. PVC, Corzan CPVC, Natural Polypro, PTFE, Kynar PVDF, and custom materials. Manufactured in USA since 1967.
Products for Improving Performance in: PVAC ICW, PCW, RO WATER DI WATER AQUEOUS CHEMICALS ACID WASTE
Pressure Reducing Valves ICW, PCW RO WATER DI WATER AQUEOUS CHEMICALS
The most significant advantage of a Plast-O-Matic regulator is flow capacity. As you can see from the next performance curve, the Plast- O-Matic regulators have much higher flow capacities than the Competition. These higher flow capacities are achieved at much lower pressure losses resulting in greater sensitivity,finer adjustability and superior accuracy.
Now Available: New design features non-rising stem No exposed external fasteners Same superior flow performance of standard Plast-O-Matic Regulator

HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL – PROPRIETARY DATA SUMMARY OF IMPROVEMENTS SERIES PRHM ¾ & 1 (Molded Body) Non-Rising Stem Overall Height Reduced Upper Housing Ribs Extended & Strengthened ALL Elastomers now Metal Ion- Free EPDM Connection Hubs Enlarged & Strengthened Shaft & Seat Redesigned Base Plate Cross Section Increased Bolts Recessed Mounting Support Holes Added
HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL – PROPRIETARY DATA SUMMARY OF IMPROVEMENTS SERIES PRH 1½ & 2 (Machined Body) ALL Elastomers now Metal Ion- Free EPDM; optional FFKM or Kalrez Shaft & Seat Redesigned Base Plate Cross Section Increased Bolts Recessed Mounting Support Holes Added
HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL – PROPRIETARY DATA PVDF SHAFT RE-DESIGN OLD NEW NO metal components in flow area Smooth flow design tapered seat & lower profile has improved flow performance by 13%
HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL – PROPRIETARY DATA Summary Depicting Finite Element Analysis (FEA) performed on 1 pc stem – Loadings from Pressure
HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL – PROPRIETARY DATA Summary Depicting FEA performed on 1 pc stem, continued Pro-Mechanica analysis of stem P/N 7828 used in PRH075EP-U & PRH100EP-U. These loadings represent 125 PSI outlet pressure with no spring load (worst case). The tensile strength is 7,450 PSI. The maximum stress is 4,563 PSI.

Lowest Cost of Ownership: Best Performance
Assumes Plast-O-Matic initial cost $4300. (PRH200EPU1-PF). Plast-O-Matic is inspected and serviced with seal kit every 1,000,000 cycles; competitive valve requires replacement every 400,000 cycles or less.
Connections Available in: Virgin Polypro PVDF PTFE PVDF or PTFE Body
THOUSANDS of Plast-O-Matic Pressure Regulators are White Paper specified & installed at Intel Fabs worldwide.

HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL – PROPRIETARY DATA Plast-O-Matic Proprietary 2-Part Cleaning Process (Prior to CDB Procedure) 1.Surface is treated to be amenable to the scavenging of metallic residues, mold release agents and ancillary contaminants. 2.SEMI F-57 compatible agents are then used to scour the activated surface of the previously indicated classes of contaminants. The contaminants and scouring agents are then flushed from the EPDM parts with 18 meg ohm water for 16 hrs. Internal valve components are carefully cleaned and scrubbed using 18 meg ohm water. The valves are then assembled in our clean room prior to secondary CDB procedure.

Pressure Sustaining Valves ICW, PCW RO WATER DI WATER AQUEOUS CHEMICALS
Also known as Relief Valves, Backpressure Valves, Bypass Valves, and Backpressure Regulators The most significant advantage of a Plast-O-Matic pressure sustaining valve is flow capacity. As you can see from the next performance curve, the Plast-O-Matic valves have much higher flow capacities than the Competition. These higher flow capacities provide significant improvements in system performance, with far less wear and tear on the pump.
Lowest Cost of Ownership: Best Performance
