Description

Detailed Description of the Invention

[0001]

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION 1. Field of the Invention The present invention is used in a manufacturing apparatus for semiconductors, liquid crystals, and the like, and various gas supply control devices constitute a plurality of rows of gas supply control lines for supplying and controlling a high-purity gas. In the gas supply control device integrated in a panel, the process gas is passed through when the process gas is supplied, the purge gas is supplied to the gas supply control line as needed, or the gas supply control line side is supplied as necessary. The present invention relates to a branch valve used for discharging a purge gas supplied from a device or supplying a process gas supplied to a gas supply control line to another line.

[0002]

2. Description of the Related Art Conventionally, for example, in a semiconductor manufacturing apparatus, an integrated gas supply control device used for supplying and controlling a high-purity gas has a plurality of gas supply control lines. Each gas supply control line is a toggle-type manual diaphragm valve that manually opens and closes the gas flow path from the upstream side to the downstream side of the process gas, an automatic diaphragm valve that automatically opens and closes the gas flow path, and impurities contained in the process gas. A desired gas supply control device such as a filter unit for removing the gas, a regulator for adjusting the pressure of the process gas, a pressure transducer for detecting the pressure of the process gas, a mass flow controller for controlling the flow rate of the process gas, and the like are connected in combination.

In recent years, as the integrated gas supply control device, an integration base having a flow path is used, and desired gas supply control devices are sequentially connected to form a gas supply control line,
A configuration is known in which a plurality of sets are arranged in parallel and integrated in a panel.

In the conventional example as described above, in order to supply the purge gas to the gas supply control line, as an example, a flow path block having a flow path for the process gas and a flow path for the purge gas is used in the base for integration, When the process gas is allowed to flow, the branch channel of the process gas channel is blocked, and when the purge gas is supplied, the purge gas channel can be communicated with the branch channel of the process gas channel so that the purge gas can be automatically connected. A configuration is known in which a diaphragm valve is connected to the flow path block using a mounting block.

As another example of supplying the purge gas to the gas supply control line, a flow path for the process gas is provided in the base for integration, a flow path for the purge gas is formed between adjacent flow path blocks, and the gas supply is performed. A slender rectangular tube-shaped pipe member having a flow path for the purge gas is provided so as to extend in the direction orthogonal to the extension direction of the control line and across the parallel gas supply control lines, and the flow path block and the pipe member are connected to each other through the flow of the purge gas. Connect in a sealed state so that the passages communicate,
A configuration is known in which an automatic diaphragm valve for purging, which can switch between the flow path of the process gas and the flow path of the purge gas, is connected to the flow path block.

[0006]

However, in the former configuration among the above-mentioned conventional examples, the purge gas flow passage of the flow passage block is lengthened by itself due to processing restrictions, and
Since the process gas flow path has a branch flow path which is a long dead space that is not used for the flow of the process gas, there is a limit to the reduction of the purge time, and the purging work efficiency is poor. Further, as the purge gas flow path becomes longer as described above, the flow path block becomes longer in the extension direction of the gas supply control line, which restricts the miniaturization of the integrated gas supply control device as a whole.

On the other hand, in the latter configuration, since a pipe member having a purge gas flow passage is provided so as to straddle an adjacent flow passage block for connecting an automatic diaphragm valve for purging, standardization is required. There are many parts, and there is a limit to the reduction of total cost. When using a toxic process gas or an explosive process gas, it is necessary to separate the parallel gas supply control lines with a partition wall to ensure safety and independence. Since the piping member is required, the shape of the partition wall becomes complicated, and not only the work for providing the partition wall is troublesome but also expensive. In addition, since the piping member is required as described above, not only is it troublesome to provide the heating heater for each gas supply control line, but it is expensive. Further, it is necessary to maintain the airtightness between the flow path blocks having the purge gas flow path and between the flow path block and the piping member, and since the number of airtightness holding locations increases, the airtightness reliability becomes poor.

An object of the present invention is to reduce the flow path length for purging and the like, and to reduce the dead space as much as possible. Therefore, it is possible to shorten the purging time and the like. The work efficiency can be improved, and the length of the gas supply control line in the integration base in the extension direction can be shortened. Therefore, the integrated gas supply control device can be downsized as a whole. Further, the number of parts for standardization of the gas supply control line can be reduced, so that the total cost can be reduced, and a pipe member that intersects with the integration base between the gas supply control lines is unnecessary. Therefore, if necessary, a partition for ensuring safety and independence may be provided between the gas supply control lines or the gas may be It is possible to easily perform the work of providing a heater for each supply control line, further reduce the number of airtight holding points, and thus to provide a branch valve capable of improving airtightness reliability. To do.

Alternatively, the opening / closing means includes the valve seat and an opening / closing element provided so as to be in contact with or separated from the valve seat, and the second opening in the first flow path. And the first opening in the second flow passage can be arranged inside the valve seat, and the second opening in the third flow passage can be arranged outside the valve seat, in which case The second opening side of the first flow path and the first opening side of the second flow path can be combined so as to be shared.

The valve body is formed so that it can be inserted into the tubular portion of the stacking base, and the tubular screw member provided on the valve body is screwed onto the screw portion formed on the tubular portion. By doing so, the valve body can be configured to be connected to the collecting base. Alternatively, the valve body is formed so that it can be inserted into a tubular portion of a support base screwed to the collecting base with a flange portion, and a tubular screw member provided on the valve body is attached to the tubular portion. The valve body can be configured to be connected to the collecting base by being screwed onto the formed screw portion. In these cases,
The external pipe can be inserted into an open portion formed in a tubular portion into which the valve body is inserted.

Alternatively, the valve body may include a flange portion having a mounting hole screwed to the collecting base.

A diaphragm can be used as the switching element.

According to the present invention configured as described above,
Since the third flow path is opened to the side of the valve body and connected to the external pipe, the flow path length for purging and the like can be shortened, and the flow path of the accumulating base can be changed to the first flow path. Since the flow passage and the second flow passage are communicated with the valve chamber, it is possible to reduce the dead space that is not used for the flow of the purge gas or the like as much as possible, and as described above, the length of the flow passage for the purge or the like. Since it is possible to shorten the length of the gas supply control line in the integration base in the extension direction, it is possible to form a flow path for the purge gas supply in the integration base, Since it is not necessary to connect members, it is possible to reduce the number of parts for standardization of the gas supply control line, and further to form a flow path for supplying purge gas or the like in the integration base as described above,
Since it is not necessary to connect the pipe members, it is possible to reduce the number of airtightly held portions.

Therefore, it is possible to reduce the size of the integrated gas supply control device as a whole. Further, it is not necessary to form a flow path for supplying purge gas or connect a piping member to the accumulating base 1. Therefore, it is possible to easily install a partition wall between the gas supply control lines for ensuring safety and independence or to provide a heating heater for each gas supply control line, if necessary. The number of parts for standardization of the supply control line can be reduced, therefore
It is possible to reduce the total cost, further reduce the number of airtight holding portions, and improve the airtight reliability.
