The New HALO KA Max H2O

Enhanced Moisture Detection Performance

The new HALO KA Max H2O, based on Tiger Optics' latest platform, is our most sensitive H2O analyzer ever with a detection limit of 100 ppt in all important semi bulk gases to protect your process yields. It also offers exceptional speed and improved usability for stress-free, real-time quality assurance.

Serani Max Interface Software

Maximize Convenience!

The new Serani™ Max Analyzer Interface Software now offers remote access from your computer or laptop for Tiger’s latest generation analyzers, such as the HALO KA Max and T-I Max. Control, monitor and collect data right from your desk via network connection for maximum convenience.

The New T-I Max Series

Next-Generation Cleanroom Monitors

Tiger Optics addresses the demanding challenges of continuous AMC monitoring for semiconductor fabrication. Based on Tiger's new and powerful analyzer platform, the T‑I Max line excels in detecting ppt levels of the three most damaging contaminants in cleanrooms: HF, HCl, and NH3.

Increased Versatility for the Spark

Now with Extended Pressure Ranges

The Spark H2O is now becoming even more versatile with additional models for lower inlet pressures. Ideal for low-frost-point generators, glove boxes, ASUs, and safety-critical filling operations, the new extended pressure options allow H2O measurements at reduced pressures, as low as 0 psig.

No Compromise!

Speed+ Analyzer Performance Upgrade

Tiger Optics is excited to introduce a new analyzer performance upgrade. Implementing new intelligent dynamic data processing, the Speed+ software adjusts your analyzer’s response automatically and in real-time to deliver the best performance. Speed+ is available for most HALO and Spark analyzers.

Verify Your Analyzer is in Spec

In-Place Performance Verification

Tiger Optics' low-cost Performance Verification Process will verify your unit is as accurate and reliable as the day it was shipped from Tiger Optics, and provide you with a certificate attesting to the accuracy of your unit.



Measuring H2O and HF Impurities in NF3 Gas

Nitrogen Fluoride (NF3) has several important industrial uses today, including manufacturing of semiconductor chips, flat panel displays, and solar cells. With increasing demand for LED / OLED displays, the global market for NF3 is expected to continue to soar over the next several years.

In the electronics industry, the main use for NF3 gas is for cleaning process chambers in the manufacturing of silicon chips. The benefits of using NF3 compared to other cleaning agents include safety, stability at room temperature, ease of handling, and lower greenhouse gas emissions than its predecessors.

Tiger Optics HALO product family can detect down to single-digit parts-per-billion (ppb) levels of H2O and HF in NF3, guaranteeing product purity for the end-users. The main advantages of Tiger’s CRDS over incumbent technologies like FTIR, for this application, are:

  • Significantly lower gas consumption
  • Excellent accuracy
  • Long term stability
  • Ease of use

Measuring Ammonia and Moisture in Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous Oxide (N2O) is commonly used in semiconductor manufacturing for the diffusion and deposition processes, where the purity requirement for semiconductor grade N2O is typically greater than 99.999%. Due to chemical reactivity, ammonia (NH3) and moisture (H2O) are two of the most critical impurities to control in the N2O product. To ensure sufficient product purity for end-users, gas manufacturers must monitor these contaminants to ensure their concentrations are below sub parts-per-million (ppm) levels.

Tiger Optics’ HALO analyzers are the perfect solution for trace NH3 and H2O analysis in N2O product. They are ideally suited for ppb-to-ppm range measurements, with extremely fast response time (T90 < 3 minutes). The calibration-free advantage of Tiger analyzers also significantly decreases maintenance cost and total Cost-of-Ownership. Please visit our website or contact us for more information.
