High-performance technology ensures low humidity levels

Solutions for the electronics and semiconductor industry

Reliable solutions against humidity and condensation

Humidity and condensate are the two interference factors causing most problems in the production of electronic parts and semiconductors. As remedy the Trotec Group has reliable solutions on offer: state-of-the-art measurement and control technology as well as industrial dryers and powerful dehumidifiers.

Humidity is the greatest danger when storing and manufacturing electronic parts and semiconductors: Even a humidity level only a trifle too high already encourages corrosion. Surface moisture from condensation can lead to poorly adherent coatings or irritations of microchips or sensors. Therefore, the room air in manufacturing processes, drying cabinets or drying rooms and during the storage of electronic parts and semiconductors has to feature a constantly low humidity level.

Process air conditioning: The solution are high-performance devices of the TTR and the DH series

This humidity level is ensured by Trotec desiccant dehumidifiers and adsorption drying units of the TTR series as well as by stationary condenser dryers for industrial usage (DH series). We provide the required measuring devices for accurate humidity monitoring in form of thermohygrometers, pyrometers, anemometers and data loggers.


Make use of our best practice industrial services

You can count on our experts

In order to precisely calculate the demand in the industry and to develop tailor-made concepts for climate conditioning experienced climate specialists are needed. Rely on our team of experts as well as the industrial services: We analyse the individual requirement situation with you present on site, determine the specific demand for devices and develop a tailor-made project solution right up to the exact positioning of the devices.

Before the planned stationary units are installed, our service team first works with mobile versions of the drying units as part of a trial run. These can be put up without any difficulty or the need for structural changes.

During this validation phase we document all relevant climate parameters such as air temperature, relative humidity, dew point or flow rate for a final optimization of the requirement calculation.

Trotec is the only provider of this advantage:

Thanks to the unique option of non-binding trial operation you will invest solely in solutions which have verifiably proven their worth in everyday operation meeting your individual on-site requirements. The stationary units will not be ordered until you are fully satisfied with our concept. The only costs incurred consist of an inexpensive hiring flat rate for the time of test operation.

Just give us a call at +49 2452 962-777 – our industry consultants will be pleased to help you personally and provide information regarding our best practice industrial services. Or send a request indicating your personal requirements directly to our industry experts. We will answer promptly!

Since every industrial undertaking has characteristic process flows, installations and facilities, every air treatment solution demands case-specific device configurations. All in all, the combined effects of air currents, humidity conditions and temperature fluctuations are often hard to calculate on a purely theoretical basis, e.g. in airlock areas or on conveying paths. The consequence: Unnecessary additional costs due to an overestimated demand or – even worse – solutions not working sufficiently in real life.

Upon request, we also produce customized desiccant dehumidifiers as special models

Upon request, we will readily produce tailor-made desiccant dehumidifiers as special models “made in Germany” perfectly geared to your needs, e.g.:

  • TTR industrial desiccant dehumidifiers with hygienic design
  • TTR industrial desiccant dehumidifiers for PWIS-free dry air
  • TTR industrial desiccant dehumidifiers with extremely low dew point

Makes use of the possibility of having special models with tailored components for your individual needs planned, designed and manufactured in close consultation with our specialists.

Application examples for the electronics and semiconductor industry

  • Electrical thermography

    In what condition are the power lines concealed in a wall or equipment? Is the plastic sheathing brittle already? Are the connections faulty? If a power cable or connection is about to come off or the insulation is bursting open, it doesn’t take much before there is some greater damage. To prevent cable fire and failures of the electrical system, an early detection and elimination of the cause of...

  • Dry air storage

    The requirements in dry air storage are very much alike in many industries: Bacterial growth on foodstuffs, powders going lumpy, corrosion on metal parts – all can be prevented, when the relative humidity is constantly kept below 50 %. A value of 70 % RH suffices as mould protection. The dehumidifiers of the TTR series along with the matching data loggers represent dehumidification systems which...

  • Cable repair

    In the industrial sector, cables are often exposed to the toughest environmental conditions. Consequently, defects occur causing an interruption of the necessary power supply – in many cases for a longer period of time. To avoid serious production losses or to perform maintenance work as quickly as possible, cable breaks and defects are located with the help of infrared thermography. Cables used...

  • Humidification in server rooms

    Reliable technology is the most important criterion for customers connected to a computer centre. At the core of a firm stands its own server room, so to say, hence the technical equipment there ought to run smoothly at all times. The IT equipment must be in immaculate condition. With this in mind, the climate in data processing centres and server rooms must be geared to the technology's needs....

  • Dehumidification in drying rooms

    In the production of electronic equipment and semiconductors humidity can lead to electrostatic charge. For this reason, sensitive processing steps are being performed in cleanrooms and drying rooms. The mobile adsorption dryers of the TTR series are ideal for these high requirements during dehumidification.

  • Dehumidification circuit board storages

    When storing printed circuit boards humidity can lead to electrostatic charge and patina formation or corrosion. Particularly suited for dehumidifying the PCB storage space are the mobile adsorption dryers of the TTR series – just as well as for other operating sectors in the electronics and semiconductor production.

  • Air conditioning industrial processes

    Concepts with stationary or mobile dehumidification are frequently used for the process air conditioning in the industry. Often drier air is required locally in machines, plants or individual operating processes – a constant supply regardless of the surrounding conditions. For this purpose, the Trotec Group provides powerful adsorption dryers for industrial customers.
