SAN DIEGO, Calif., October 28, 2010 – RASIRC, the steam purification company, announced today that it has been selected as a winner in the category of Semiconductors, Industrial and Analytical Instrumentation for the 2010 TechAmerica High Tech Awards. In its seventeenth year, the annual awards program celebrates excellence in the region’s technology industry and honors outstanding companies for their technological or business innovation; exceptional products or service; product marketplace validation; perseverance in the face of adversity; and community involvement. RASIRC’s ultra high purity steam generation and delivery technology was recognized for its innovation and market potential.
“We are pleased to be recognized by TechAmerica for both innovation and market credibility,” said Jeffrey Spiegelman, RASIRC President. “We have developed the first commercially accepted steam purification technology, which is used to improve solar cell efficiency, semiconductor line width shrinks, and carbon nanotube structures. Our steamers, humidifiers and humidification systems incorporate patented processes for water vapor control, delivery and purification. With triple digit CAGR over the last 5 years, we believe the market has spoken positively about our products.”
RASIRC technology delivers ultra high purity water vapor to manufacturing processes at a wide range of flow rates from micrograms to kilograms per minute. Steam is created from de-ionized water. This eliminates explosive and expensive hydrogen and oxygen, delivering high purity water vapor at a lower cost than all other technologies presently in use. RASIRC customers are leaders in semiconductor, photovoltaics and other manufacturing industries.
