FUJI FIRST FOR BOC

 FUJI FIRST FOR BOC
 MURRAY HILL, N.J., Jan. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- The first supplies of


ultrahigh-purity liquid nitrogen into a BOC SPECTRA 100 installation in the U.K. are now being delivered to Fuji Electric (Scotland) Ltd., East Kilbride, it was announced today by Airco Gases.
 The drive for quality in the electronics industry has led to decreasing impurity levels on all purchased supplies, especially industrial gases and systems. The BOS SPECTRA 100 program addresses this requirement on a global scale ensuring, at Fuji's East Kilbride plant, a supply of liquid nitrogen which is 99.99999 percent pure.
 This is supplied from BOC's new ultrahigh-purity air separation unit at Motherwell and delivered by special BOC SPECTRA 100 cryogenic road tankers with ongoing stock levels of nitrogen being monitored remotely.
 In addition, BOC supplies the site's hydrogen requirements using high grade product supplemented by further on-site gas purification to meet this advanced specification.
 The new Fuji plant manufactures power transistor modules which are semiconductor devices used to control motors such as those used in CNC machinery.
 The nitrogen and hydrogen contracts won by BOC required meeting the tightest gas specifications, which were validated by the BOC mobile analytical laboratory. This laboratory is continuing to audit gas quality on a regular basis.
 The installation was designed using the best available components from the U.S., the U.K. and Japan, each of which was specified based on the worldwide experience of the BOC electronics groups.
 "We are delighted with the quality and speed of the gas supply installation," said Mr. Yajima, managing director of Fuji Electric (Scotland) Ltd. "It has enabled us to start our East Kilbride operations on schedule and helps us achieve high quality levels in our production processes."
 Fuji Electric is one of Japan's largest manufacturers of electrical products and employs approximately 32,000 people worldwide. The new multi-million dollar East Kilbride facility is their first venture in Europe.
