About Us

RASIRC develops products that purify and deliver ultra pure liquids and gases, with a primary focus on water vapor. RASIRC steam generators and humidifiers are of critical importance for many applications including semiconductor and micro-electronics, solar, and nanotechnology.

The company's two main product lines—RASIRC Steamers and RainMaker® Humidifiers—incorporate proprietary and patented sealing, material and membrane technologies. These unique products are safer, lower cost, and outperform any alternative. In addition to standardized products, RASIRC is prepared to develop and deliver custom solutions.

The company was founded by Jeffrey Spiegelman, former president and founder of Aeronex, Inc., a company that designed and manufactured gas purification systems.

RASIRC holds the following patents and trademarks.

  • Patent #7,618,027: This patent is for a vaporizing device for control, delivery, and purification of water vapor in conjunction with a carrier gas. The patent is used in RainMaker humidification systems (RHS) to control the transfer and purification of water vapor directly into a carrier gas stream including inert, corrosive, and flammable gases, such as hydrogen, at a wide range of flow rates for use in solar, microelectronics, and other critical process applications.

  • Patent #7,625,015B2: This patent is for a novel adhesive and weld-free assembly technique for working with membranes and ultrapure materials. The patented process allows for the simultaneous sealing of multiple tubes within a single outer shell when an external radial compressive force is applied and is used in both RainMaker humidification systems (RHS) and RASIRC Steamers.
  • Patent #8,282,708: This patent is for a novel method of producing ultrapure steam. The method is based on the ability to generate a high rate of diffusion of water vapor through a non-porous membrane. The patent is used in RASIRC products including RASIRC Steamers that deliver ultra-high purity steam for a variety of applications including wet thermal oxidation and wafer cleaning for MEMS and semiconductor devices, backside passivation for solar cells, and steam annealing for amorphous metal oxide thin film transistors (TFTs).
