  • Patent number: 11961744
    Abstract: In a chamber, first processing is performed as preliminary processing. After the first processing has been finished, the temperature in a predetermined target region in the chamber is measured with a thermographic camera. Then, whether or not to start second processing on a substrate is determined in accordance with the acquired measured temperature information. If it is determined as a result that the second processing can be started, the second processing is performed. In this case, the second processing on the substrate can be started, with the temperature of the target region in the chamber having reached its stability. Accordingly, the second processing can be performed uniformly on a plurality of substrates. That is, it is possible to reduce variations in processing caused by temperature environments in the chamber.

  • Publication number: 20220274051
    Abstract: An absorption type carbon dioxide removal and concentration device can remove or concentrate a carbon dioxide throughout four seasons and can be manufactured with a relatively simple structure. The device includes a carbon dioxide removal rotor that holds a carbon dioxide absorbent. The rotor is divided into at least a treatment zone and a regeneration zone. Air to be treated is ventilated through the treatment zone, so that carbon dioxide contained in the air to be treated is absorbed by a holding absorbent of the rotor portion, so that the CO2 can be separated and removed from the air to be treated. In the regeneration zone, regeneration air is ventilated, so that the carbon dioxide absorbed by the holding absorbent in the treatment zone is desorbed with the regeneration air to regenerate the holding absorbent. A total heat exchanger recovers latent heat and sensible heat from the regeneration exhaust.
