Industries: Semiconductor , Industrial
Call for pricing
The LFC-7000 Series high-performance closed-loop flow controllers are designed for use in a wide variety of liquids including DI water, harsh chemicals, and CMP polishing slurries.

The LFC-7000 Series is a line of high-performance closed-loop flow controllers designed for use in a wide variety of
high-purity liquids including DI water, harsh chemicals, and CMP polishing slurries.


• High Accuracy - Controls flowrate to within ± 1% of setpoint; ideal for fluid blending and/or dispense applications
• Fast Response 3 seconds (typically < 2 seconds for most applications)
• Broad application range with 2 types of control valves
• Wide range of flow control capability; 5 mL/min - 12000 mL/min (turndown can be as high as 100:1)
• All PTFE/PFA wetted part construction – insures compatibility with UHP liquid chemicals, DI water and CMP slurries (slurry module with Pt cured Silicone tubing)
• Low maintenance - modules featuring ultrasonic flowmeters with NO moving parts provide the ultimate in “uptime” (slurry module with pinch tube replacement cycle of 3 years or longer)

  • Semiconductor CMP tools - used to precisely control the flow of chemicals and polishing slurries dispensed to the
    polishing platen; an ideal replacement for peristaltic pump based delivery systems.
  • Wet Cleaning tools – for accurate and reliable control of the blending and delivery of cleaning chemistries.
  • Copper Plating tools – well suited to chemical mixing and dispensing applications.
