The new purifiers will help ensure consistent, cost-effective delivery of the pure ammonia needed to make LEDs with the highest luminosity. Featuring twice the service life of other commercially available technologies, Gaskleen High-Bright purifiers offer the enhanced performance and cost control that are critical to the economics of LED production. "With this new purifier, Pall has addressed the industry demand for the brightest LEDs at the lowest operating cost," said Jan-Paul van Maaren, vice president of strategic marketing, Pall Microelectronics. "The cost of LEDs needs to drop and the performance has to rise to accelerate the adoption of LED lamps as replacements for incandescent and CFL bulbs. This new technology will give our customers both a performance and cost advantage." Gaskleen purifier assemblies combine Pall`s proprietary purification materials and Ultramet-L stainless steel filter media. They remove moisture and other oxygenated compounds from process gases to sub ppb levels while providing 3-nanometer or 0.4-micron filtration. Additionally, they do not release aluminum or other metal ions into the process stream, further increasing luminosity.
