  Founded in Malaysia, MayAir has expanded rapidly as a Chinese brand with a strong focus on ultra-clean-room technology that is attracting global attention.




  The swift growth of the nanochip/microchip and display panel industries has remarkably driven the emergence of China’s ultra-cleanroom technology, which is benefiting from enormous growth. And China began to develop its own nanochips when the escalating U.S.-China trade conflict heated up two years ago. Ultra-cleanroom technology is playing a vital role in the booming nanochip industry, and is becoming renowned on a global scale. Therefore, many manufacturers have begun to enter this business segment, typically the air purification in the ultra-cleanroom segment for the microelectronics industry.

  Established in 2001 as a clean technology specialist, MayAir has a proven track record as a global leader that manufactures, develops, and provides air filtration solutions and equipment in the industrial and commercial as well as the environmental and indoor air quality (IAQ) segments. Core products for the industrial segment include fan filter units (FFUs), air filters, and equipment for applications in the microenvironmental, biosafety, and medical fields, and the commercial segment covers the IAQ, kitchen fume purification, and fresh air purification.


111  MayAir has a total of five production plants in China and Malaysia. In Nanjing, China, the company owns a 40,000-m2 research and development (R&D) and manufacturing center with nearly 100 R&D personnel. The present-focused and future-ready R&D focuses on energy savings, noise reduction, and system integration technologies for FFUs. At the same time, the center also strives for significant advancement in ultra-efficient filtration technology, activated carbon adsorption technology – based on physical/chemical adsorption, catalytic oxidation decomposition technology, ion exchange adsorption technology, microwave removal technology for volatile organic compounds (VOCs), centrifugal oil mist separation technology, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation technology, and many other core technologies.


  MayAir has further demonstrated its commitment to the revolutionizing of air filtration with the setting up of an R&D center staffed by professional engineers. The center is well- equipped with the comprehensive technology and testing equipment such as an FFU comprehensive test bench and an air purifier test chamber.

MayAir has also supplied cleanroom technology for Apple, Huawei, SMIC, Huahong Microelectronics, Intel, etc. In the pharmaceutical field, MayAir’s bluechip clients include Roche, Pfizer, Merck, and Johnson and Johnson.

  At the same time, MayAir also applied ultra-clean technology to commercial, residential, biosafety, medical, and health-related fields. The company’s innovations in the fields of exhaust gas emission treatment and various air purification solutions with better product lifecycle costs have made significant contributions in the related fields.

  In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, MayAir’s products also played an important role in addressing a surge in demand for negative-pressure isolation wards. As compared to the air conditioning and ventilation systems used in ordinary wards, the hospitals built specially to deal with the epidemic met higher requirements in order to protect the medical front-liners and patients. To ensure the air is free of microorganisms before distribution, negative-pressure air conditioning technology is generally used for such wards.



  “MayAir is committed to becoming a global integrated supplier of clean technology and solutions, focusing on R&D innovation as the driving force for development, and on strategic positioning to lead the industry forward. MayAir has established a nationwide sales and service network, and has developed a comprehensive competitive advantage in terms of technology, products, channels, brands, and services”, said Yap Wee Keong, chief executive officer (CEO) of MayAir, during an inter- view with JARN.

  Nano-level technology catalyzes ultra-clean technology. MayAir has grown into a leading brand in China’s air purification industry, and the development of MayAir has attracted the attention of the industry.

MayAir is fortunate to provide supporting services for leading companies in the domestic chip industry and provide end-of-line clean equipment.     The clean room environment directly affects the yield of the chip manufacturing process.   The manufacture of chips requires hundreds of steps. During the whole process, the temperature and air cleanliness are strictly controlled. In the clean room of this environment, the wafers are continuously flowed and processed through various mechanical equipment. After a strict manufacturing process and a strict dust-free environment, the packaged chip is completed. As we all know, the air is full of dust, so small that it is invisible to the naked eye. However, the dust is like a large particle for the volume of each transistor. The dust or pollutants fall on the crystal during the manufacturing process. On the circle, other defects such as short circuit and burning of the chip will be caused. Therefore, to ensure the high yield of the chip, it is necessary to protect its high production environment and cleanliness! What role does FFU play in a clean room? FFU full name: Fan Filter Unit is composed of high-efficiency filters or ultra-high-efficiency filters, fans, case and other components. It is used for turbulent flow and laminar flow clean room. The clean method of FFU: It can achieve the clean room with air cleanliness level between ISO1-ISO8. The air in the clean room is sent to the clean room by the FFU from the technical interlayer on the clean room, and the circulating air is sent back to the technical interlayer through the return air duct. FFU conventional design: a variety of body materials are available, galvanized steel plate & stainless-steel plate & aluminum plate.       Site Installation Picture   FFU product features:     FFU control system: [manual five-gear speed regulation, manual stepless speed regulation, multiple group control, multiple touch screen control] and FLONET management system.

According to the International Semiconductor Industry Association SEMI, the investment in 12-inch fab equipment expenditures in 2020 will increase by 16% compared with last year. It is predicted that the growth rate will be maintained at 16% in 2021, and will increase by another 12% in 2022 to exceed US$80 billion. Driven by the accelerated global digital transformation of the coronavirus, and with the popularization of 5G, electric vehicles, and smart wearable devices, the demand for chips in the future will usher in a spurt of demand.     Beginning in 2018, China and the United States have been fighting from trade war to technology war, and China has faced many challenges in developing the semiconductor industry. However, in addition to improving the core technology and manufacturing process of independent research and development, the development of the semiconductor industry also needs to consider factors such as basic hardware facilities and construction. Among the many links, the construction and maintenance of the clean workshop necessary for the semiconductor process is very important. In addition to the need to maintain the clean room in a constant temperature, constant humidity, ultra-clean and dust-free environment, its also necessary to consider the influence of the gaseous pollutant AMC.     Classification of AMC With the continuous upgrade and iteration of the manufacturing process, the control of particulate matter alone can no longer improve the yield. The control technology of the AMC (Airborne Molecular Contamination) has become a necessary means to improve the semiconductor yield. Since 2005, MayAir's gaseous filtration business unit has been committed to serving fabs in mainland China, including a leading integrated circuit manufacturing company in China.   Founded in 2000, the company is a well-equipped multinational integrated circuit manufacturing company in mainland China. It can provide foundry and technical services for different technology nodes from 0.35 micron to 14 nanometers, including logic chips, mixed-signal/RF transceiver chips, High voltage chip, system chip, flash memory chip, EEPROM chip, image sensor chip power management, micro electromechanical system, etc.     As the key line width dimension of wafers produced by the company has been reduced from 0.35 microns to the 14-nanometer node, slight deviations in air quality in the work area will directly affect the yield of the product. The control requirements for AMC can be said to be more and more stringent. Environmental AMC concentration has strict control indicators and long-term monitoring, and MayAir has been escorting customers' clean room AMC control to meet customer requirements.   Through more than ten years of cooperation with this customer and in line with the national strategy of chip localization, MayAir’s chemical filter division has also been intensively engaged in the research and development of chemical filters. It has invested in product research and development technology by increasing capital expenditures, and strengthened products in energy-saving, Performance and indicators in terms of noise reduction and emission reduction, and meet the conditions required by the customer group to meet the requirements of a clean environment, promote production capacity increase and product quality optimization, in order to achieve growth with customers and promote the development of "China Chip".
