Qualify AMC Filters & Protect Clean Rooms
Airborne molecular contamination (AMC), or chemical contamination, is the presence of gases or vapors in the atmosphere that may have a detrimental effect on process, equipment, and product in cleanrooms and controlled environments. AMC is a concern for the semiconductor industry, wafer fabrication, hard drive manufacturing, and other high technology manufacturing processes (reference ISO 14644-8 classification of airborne molecular contamination). AMC filtration is one of the methods used to control chemical contamination, where contaminants are removed by adsorption, as the air passes through AMC media.
