GAS PLASMA SYSTEM FOR TREATMENT OF POWDERS
Product Announcement from Plasmatech, Inc.
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.
