Innovation and Technology

At Trebor®, we live and breathe our slogan of Pure-Innovation. Our pioneering designs include inverse Air Operated Diaphragm Pump (AODD) pumps and liquid heating solutions which utilize our proprietary thin-film elements. Were known globally for our technological advantages in complex high-purity liquid applications. We support multiple industries, including Semiconductor, Photovoltaic, Chemical Manufacturing, LED, Flat Panel & Pharmaceutical. Here are just a few of our innovative technology that sets Trebor® apart.

Smart Pilot Valve

The Smart Pilot Valve is a feedback device used for sending a control signal back to the shuttle valve. The smart pilot can be thought of as an end-of-stroke detector. This valve enables dynamic cycle rate change based on fluid pressure conditions making it ideal for continuous high head pressure operation. The smart pilot enables dead-head comfortable operation for reliable pump stop/start conditions.  Smart pilot valves are included in Trebor’s Distribution technology pumps.

Distribution Technology

This configuration employs unique air logic and polypropylene air-side heads designed to comfortably handle high head pressure conditions. It will support closed discharge valve operations, commonly referred to as dead-head conditions. This technology is utilized primarily in chemical delivery applications. Our Distribution pumps incorporate smart pilot valves and a non-centering shuttle system to enable reliable start/stop operations. These pumps may be operated by turning the air supply on/off Or as intended by closing a valve in the discharge line for point-of-use control. This point-of-use control is used in what is referred to as Direct Dispense Applications.

Non-Centering Magnetic Shuttle Valve

The valve is the air control device for sequencing pump function. This device includes a ceramic spool valve designed to maintain control over which chamber is being exhausted and which is being pressurized. Its function is supported by a magnetic detent which supplements the design to include a controlled switching bias. This detent creates instability at the center position so that shuttle stalls due to centering are impossible.

Free Floating Diaphragm Technology

Trebor® diaphragms are designed to be free floating in order to maximize their lifespan. Trebor® pumps are designed with an Inverse Air Operated Diaphragm Pump concept that eliminates mechanical connections at the face of the diaphragm. By removing this mechanical connection, we have eliminated the primary diaphragm wear point for an AODD pump. Diaphragm lifespan in a Trebor® pump is based on the flex life of the diaphragm materials we utilize in our various pump models.

External Control Technology

Suitable for recirculation, chemical delivery and transfer applications. Certain models are capable of operating continuously at 180°C/356° at air pressures up to 60psi/.42MPa. This technology must be configured with a remote air logic control device like a solenoid valve. Solenoid valve control is used for sequencing pump function through timed oscillation.

Recirculation Technology

Designed specifically for wet etch and clean chemical recirculation. This technology can also support point-to-point chemical transfer. Certain models are capable of handling continuous temperatures of 180°C/356°F at air pressures up to 60psi/.42MPa. Recirculation pumps are supported by Trebor’s Non-Stall Shuttle System. This system utilizes a mechanical detent which ensures that the shuttle cannot stall due to centering.

Thin-film on Quartz Electric Resistive Technology

Trebor’s thin-film element is used to its potential when leveraging the advantages of its extremely low thermal mass and high watt density. This technology is predicated on its ability to rapidly heat liquids in single-pass applications. The low thermal mass of this element also ensures that heat can be dissipated quickly which supports its usage in applications with the varying flow and temperature recipes. These elements are capable of delivering the fastest response time to temperature and highest temperature accuracy available in the semiconductor industry.
