Award-Winning Humidification System enabling precise fabrication of carbon nanotubes to be a Highlight at nanoTX’07
Dallas, TX | Posted on September 11th, 2007
RASIRC™, the steam purification company, will demonstrate its RainMaker Humidification System (RHS) that has been selected by the editors of R&D Magazine and MICRO/NANO newsletter as one of the most innovative products of 2007 in their Inaugural MICRO/NANO 25 Competition.
"We are indeed proud to have them with us this year," said nanoTX'07 General Manager Richard Mason. "RASIRC's RHS is the first and only system to deliver precise amounts of ultra pure water vapor and simultaneously remove contaminants and dissolved gases. This is an outstanding addition to our event. According to MICRO/NANO, technologies that are revealed to be the most innovative, the most groundbreaking, and those having the largest impact on a specific industry or society in general are selected for their award."
Precise control of water vapor is critical for the manufacture of carbon nanotubes, photovoltaics, pharmaceuticals, and semiconductors. The RainMaker Humidification System is a self-contained closed loop system for adding between 1 sccm (0.0008 grams/minute) and 1000 sccm (0.8 grams/minute) of water vapor into a carrier gas stream. It can humidify inert, corrosive, and flammable gases, such as hydrogen and oxygen, at a wide range of flow rates. The system can deliver into atmosphere as well as vacuum process pressures to enable CVD, ALD, and some plasma processes.
The heart of the RHS is a non-porous membrane that prevents particles, micro-droplets, volatile gases, and ionic species from being transferred to the carrier gas and ensures only water vapor is added.
"The key to the RASIRC technology is that we can precisely deliver micrograms of water vapor that is free of those contaminants we normally associate with liquid water. This precise control will enable fabrication of carbon nanotubes that is not possible any other way," explained RASIRC founder and president Jeffrey Spiegelman. "This unique design delivers water vapor into both atmospheric and vacuum process which eliminates many other options for delivery of water vapor. Being the recipient of the prestigious MICRO/NANO Award is quite an honor and a testament to this technology."
The MICRO/NANO 25 Competition is judged by an independent panel of experts and the editors of the MICRO/NANO newsletter. Selections are based on the uniqueness of the technology, the innovation involved in its development, the potential value the technology provides to an industry or society, the performance that the technology exemplifies, the creation of new intellectual property, and a comparison to existing technologies.
R&D and its MICRO/NANO newsletter are published by Advantage Media. They are distributed to over 80,000 people in the applied research and development industries.
RASIRC products purify and deliver ultra pure liquids and gases. RASIRC's technology is the first to generate ultra high purity (UHP) steam from de-ionized water. It reduces cost, improves yield, and improves safety. UHP steam has many applications in the semiconductor industry, nanotechnology, photovoltaic manufacturing and related industries.

The Nanotechnology Conference & Trade Expo during International Nanotechnology Week, presented by the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) at the Dallas Convention Center October 3-4, 2007, is created to highlight the world's commercial micro and nanotechnology initiatives and hosts luminaries of the business and scientific community under one roof, bringing nanotech issues to the forefront while sharing knowledge and solutions.
Exhibitors at nanoTX show their brands as major industry leaders in science, technology, engineering, and the Nanotech Business Community. This vital conference attracts attention from thousands of technology leaders in the Americas and abroad. nanoTX means business, and succeeds by working closely with Industry, Capital, Governments, Universities and R&D labs.
Here top minds from around the world confer at important Summits in Energy, Health, Environment, Advanced Materials, CMOS, Printed Electronics, etc.
Centerpiece to the event this year is NASA’s Moon Base program, Lockheed Martin’s Orion Spacecraft, and life-like Hanson and Kumotek Robotics.
The kick-off the night before is an invitation-only Nobel Laureate Legends evening, the industry’s premier networking event, this year featuring the Buckyball Discovery Team Reunion. http://www.nanotx.biz
