SEMI F13 - Guide for Gas Source Control Equipment
This guide was technically approved by the global Facilities Committee and is the direct responsibility of the North American Facilities Committee. Current edition approved by the North American Regional Standards Committee on August 27, 2001. Initially available at www.semi.org September 2001; to be published November 2001. Originally published in 1993.
The purpose of this document is to provide a guide for the design and operational requirements of gas source control equipment which is used to control pressure and flow from a gas cylinder to the point of use.
This document describes the components and minimum performance criteria for gas source control equipment used with hazardous production material (HPM) semiconductor gases. This guide also includes recommended component functions and operating requirements.
