Last year, Porvair underlined its ambition to innovate in advanced electronics by acquiring Idaho-based TEM Filters, a designer and manufacturer of PTFE and metal fibre filters for the microelectronics industry. The acquisition of TEM – now known as Porvair’s Boise Division – has allowed Porvair to leverage a wealth of expertise, complementing the sintered powder metal products that have already been developed for the microelectronics market by its Caribou Division. As a result, the company has been able to unveil an expanded and diverse range of high purity filtration products. As part of its new range of GasPro™ products, Porvair can now offer diverse options, from Restrictive Flow Products (RFP) with a single opening, to Sintered Metal Flow Restrictors with thousands of sub-micron passageways. These flow-limiting devices are installed in compressed gas supply systems or in gas distribution manifolds to control a high flow spike, caused by the rupture of a gas supply line, a malfunctioning valve or the failure of a pressure regulator. Porvair’s new GasPro high purity gas filtration products meanwhile are optimised for the protection of critical valves, pressure regulators, mass flow controllers and other gas panel components used in microelectronics gas delivery equipment.
