Kinetics Launches Mass Flow Controller Calibration Service in Germany

Apr 24, 2001, 01:00 ET from Kinetics Group, Inc.

    SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 24 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ --
 Kinetics Group Inc., today announced the expansion of its ISO9002 certified
 service center in Munich, to provide rapid turnaround calibration services for
 mass flow controllers (MFCs) for semiconductor and high-purity gas flow
 instrumentation customers in Germany and mainland Europe.
     Offering the company's unique CrossChek calibration methodology -- which
 optimizes accuracy by checking three independent methods against each other
 -- the Class 100 operation provides a service, which assures users of the
 integrity and performance of their manufacturing and test processes.
     "The extension of our regional services allows Kinetics to make further
 reductions in lead-times for gas system products and services for our
 customers in Germany," said Shimon Bart, regional vice president of Kinetics
 Europe.  "In combination with Kinetics' substantial investments in MFC
 technology and gas system facilities in Ireland, we now have a uniquely
 capable and responsive European operation -- allowing us to undertake major
 projects and help our clients achieve truly effective outsourcing
 arrangements."
     The center provides calibration services for any MFC -- including high
 temperature, low pressure and digital instruments -- plus repairs and
 configuration for the full range of Kinetics instruments.  In conjunction with
 its local partner ESL, Kinetics is additionally introducing the option for
 24-hour turnaround to help clients minimize machine downtime for critical
 processes such as semiconductor fabrication.
     The CrossChek methodology checks three independent calibration methods
 against each other to provide the optimum flow reference, to achieve MFC
 measurement accuracy of +/-1% full scale at +/-3 sigma limits (99.7%
 confidence).
    Kinetics is the world's largest provider of critical process
 infrastructure, uniquely positioned to meet its customers' needs for capacity
 expansions and integration of new process and manufacturing technologies in
 their facilities.  Kinetics designs and manufactures gas distribution systems,
 mass flow controllers, re-circulating coolers and chillers, chemical and
 slurry blending and distribution systems, and provides outsource contract
 manufacturing services.
