Troubleshooting Semiconductor Water Systems with Jill Wallin from WaferTech
By Mike Henley
Troubleshooting water system problems is vital to the successful operation of a water or wastewater system. Jill Wallin, a senior facilities engineer with WaferTech in Cambas, WA, said instruments are helpful in determining the type of problem that may exist. “It really depends on the application and situation. Obviously, if we are seeing an organic issue, then we would use a TOC meter. Likewise, if there is low resistivity, then we would use resistivity probes,” she said.
Ms. Wallin began her water treatment career in 1998, working first with Hewlett-Packard and then with Intel before moving on to WaferTech. This article is based on a recent interview Ultrapure Water had with Ms. Wallin and the remainder provides her responses to those questions.
