GAS PLASMA SYSTEM FOR TREATMENT OF POWDERS

Product Announcement from Plasmatech, Inc.

GAS PLASMA SYSTEM FOR TREATMENT OF POWDERS -Image

The AL200-D GAS PLASMA SYSTEM  is designed for treatment of powder, pellet and crystalline materials.    A specially designed 5 liter rotating chamber ensures treatment consistency, even when processing very fine powders and compounds.    

Production systems with larger chambers are also available to accommodate higher volume requirements.   The AL200-D is clean room compatible and available in a table-top version or with free-standing enclosure to permit vacuum pump incorporation within the system cabinetry.   PLC control; recipe storage; error monitoring; and mass flow controllers for precise gas measurement ensure absolute process repeatability.    Plasma generation via microwave frequency results in very low chamber temperatures, so no cumbersome, leak-prone liquid electrode cooling is required.

An environmentally green technology, gas plasma is a dry process utilizing various bottled gases to modify, activate or hyper-clean surfaces.   Typical  applications in the medical device, pharmaceutical, IVD and medical research industries include attaching chemical functional groups to biomaterials; increasing wettability of plastics prior to bonding or coating; cleaning ceramic, metal or glass components to remove residual organic contamination from wet or high temperature processes; and cell culture component surface tailoring.   

Plasmatech offers a full line of low pressure plasma equipment, as well as contract processing services for both conventional surface treatment and PECVD thin film polymerized coatings.   Parylene coating equipment is also available.
