New Purifiers Address Need for Luminosity and Cost Control
PORT WASHINGTON, N.Y.--(Business Wire)--
Pall Corporation (NYSE:PLL) has introduced Gaskleen High-Bright purifiers to
remove molecular contaminants from ammonia used in the manufacture of high
brightness light emitting diodes (HB-LEDs). 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.
