  • Patent number: 11881417
    Abstract: First and second concentration measurements are provided in lines for first and second supply liquid lines. A dissolved concentration of gas in the second supply liquid is lower than that in the first supply liquid. In the first and second lines, first ends of branch lines are connected upstream of the concentration measurements. The second ends of the branch lines are connected to a mixing part. By mixing the first and second supply liquids, a processing liquid is generated. Respective flow rates in the branch lines are based on the first and second concentration measurements to set the dissolved concentration of the gas in the processing liquid. Thus, particles or the like can be removed from the processing liquid to be supplied to a substrate, and the dissolved concentration of the gas in the processing liquid can be set with high accuracy.

  • Patent number: 11810795
    Abstract: Disclosed is a substrate treating apparatus. All treating units are each arranged such that a treatment chamber, a chemical piping space, and an exhaust chamber are located side by side along a transportation space, the chemical piping space is located on a first side of the treatment chamber, and the exhaust chamber faces the chemical piping space across the treatment chamber when seen from the transportation space. The exhaust chamber faces the chemical piping space across the treatment chamber, leading to prevention of obstruction of a passage for passing a pipe, configured to supply a chemical to a substrate held by a holding rotator, by an exhaust pipe. Moreover, a single type of treating units is enough for the substrate treating apparatus instead of two types of treating units currently used. This results in sharing of components by all the treating units.
