KLA Tencor

KLA Tencor B5W Clean Room

Owner: KLA Tencor
General Contractor: San Jose Construction
Location: Milpitas, CA
Square Footage: 30,000

The KLA building 5 west cleanroom is a 30,000 square foot class 100 space with a small class 10 assembly area. The HVAC system included the installation of (8) chilled water recirculation air handling units and (1) chilled water makeup air handling unit complete with steam humidifier. New variable speed secondary pumps were install and connected to the existing site chilled water system along with new 10” chilled water main piping from the utility yard to the new air handling equipment. The process piping included CDA, Nitrogen and instrument vacuum. A complete process cooling water system was installed, including a cooling water skid complete with a heat exchanger, buffer tank, variable speed pumping and UV purification.

Compugraphics Clean Room

Compugraphics Clean Room

Owner: Compugraphics
General Contractor: Devcon Construction
Location: Fremont, CA
Square Footage: 44,000

For the Compugraphics Clean Room project, UMI worked with an existing older clean room system comprised of 3 packaged AC units and 7 transfer fans ducted to HEPA filters in the clean room. UMI’s scope in the clean room consisted of:

  • A new controls system to bring one the clean room AC units online only in a backup capacity
  • A scrubbed exhaust system with connections to emergency power and new AWN system
  • A supply fan system with controls that allow the clean room to maintain positive pressure even in case of power failure
  • Repairing existing ductwork above the clean room ceiling to minimize leakage and maximize clean room air flow
  • Balancing of air flow at HEPA filters
  • Controls systems interlocks with plumbing systems
  • UMI installed a humidifier system at the roof to maintain the clean room at 40% RH +/- 5%

Potential Project Addition:

  • Addition of supplemental cooling via a chilled water pre-cooling system to deal with the added heat load in the clean room from a higher tool density and higher outside air intake than intended at the original building design
