A Case Study in Nitrogen: Kateeva OLED Displays
Gas: Ultra high purity nitrogen
Suction Pressure: .8 psig
Discharge Pressure: 95 psig
Flow: 17.75 SCFM
Situation: California based Kateeva is creating a new class of production equipment for advanced flat panel display products like OLED (organic light-emitting diode) TVs. Through this process they questioned, what is the most efficient and effective way to compress nitrogen? They desired a compressor manufacturer that would assist in building equipment for their development.
Their major concern was finding a compressor that would not allow outside oxygen to contaminate the manufacturing process and product. It needed to keep nitrogen pure while stopping ingress of oxygen higher than 5 ppb (parts per billion). They struggled to find anyone that would even come close to solving their situation.
Solution: Mr. Mauck could not find a compressor to meet these requirements until he spoke with representatives from Hycomp. The Hycomp team worked together to understand the problem and find the correct solution for Kateeva to meet their difficult requirements.
Justin Mauck, Senior Mechanical Engineer for Kateeva, approached Hycomp with this situation. Hycomp accepted the challenge. They worked together to understand the problem and find the correct solution for Kateeva to meet their difficult requirements.
“Talking to the Hycomp engineers gave me a strong sense that they could really solve our difficult problem,” Mauck commented, “We had a hard time finding anyone that could even come close to meeting our need. When we found Hycomp, I thought ‘this is it’ and I was excited to work with them.”
