The Furon® MDP 50 Pump is designed with a 100% fluoropolymer wetted flow path of virgin PTFE and PFA with rolling diaphragm technology, and is suitable for ultrapure applications. Saint-Gobain engineers collaborated with a well-known Korean chip manufacturer using a syringe pump to dose a highly corrosive chemical in their chip fabrication process. They experienced an issue with the short lifetime of their pump. The wetted flow path of the syringe pump was not constructed exclusively of high purity material and was driven by a step-motor system. They were looking for a reliable dosing pump that efficiently dispenses small amounts of liquid, easy to adjust, and suitable for use with highly corrosive media.
