At the same time ENIAC (the first digital computer) was unveiled in Philadelphia, Brooks Instrument was founded-just 35 miles away. That was 1946-the same year "automation" came into use.
Since the 1960's Brooks has supplied rotameters, pressure regulators, needle valves and mass flow controllers to control the flow of critical process gases in the semiconductor manufacturing process. Brooks also makes electromagnetic and positive displacement flowmeters found elsewhere in a fab for other applications.
Brooks Instrument has introduced more new products than any other flow instrument manufacturer in the world. Brooks'marketing and development team doesn't merely respond, it anticipates the needs of an ever evolving semiconductor industry to provide advanced technology to enhance your process.
Brooks was the first to use 316L VAR stainless steel for their instrumentation products. Brooks was also the first to use a thru-flow sensor in their liquid mass flow controllers. And, when Brooks introduced its line of ultraclean mass flow controllers, it set the industry standard.
Brooks Instrument was the first flow measurement company in the world to be certified to ISO 9001 quality standards. With these quality standards, Brooks continues to improve an already impressive out-of-the-box failure rate of less than 1%.
When Brooks Instrument became a division of Emerson Electric Company, it joined a powerful and stable universe. You may recognize other Emerson brands such as MicroMotion, Rosemount, Intellution, Appleton, Electro-Test, Branson Ultrasonics, Motion Control and Xomox which also service your semiconductor process.
