Used successfully worldwide, Thyrobox power supply systems are synonymous with utmost reliability and repeatability in the polysilicon production process.
As global market leader in the field of power supplies for polysilicon production, AEG Power Solutions provide custom solutions that are tailor-made for the polysilicon process. Owing to their state-of-the-art AC technology, AEG’s Thyrobox power supply systems are extremely energy-efficient and reliable as compared with other technologies.
Typical Thyrobox applications in polysilicon production include power supplies for the direct heating of polysilicon rods in the D reactor, also called deposition reactor, and for the direct heating of graphite elements in the H reactor (STC-TCS converter).
The illustration depicts different deposition reactor designs.
Thyrobox power supply systems meet the complex demands of both D and H reactors. The following illustration shows standard power supplies currently in use.
Modular systems for medium-voltage ignition, pre-heating and process heating for the CVD deposition process in reactors having 12, 18, 24 and 27-rod pairs
Power supply system for medium-voltage ignition of silicon rod pairs as a add-on for existing Thyrobox VSC power supply systems
Power supply system for H reactors with multi-level VSC circuits
Thyrobox PI, with its breakthrough patented technology, is the tool for improved competitiveness:
• Increase of deposition temperature
• Increase of rod diameter
• Prevention of rod core from melt down
• Reduction of mechanical stress in rods
• Avoidance of rod cracks and system shutdown
• Reduction of hot spots
Minimization of the well-known technical problems inside the reactor is the basis for a faster deposition process but with fewer problems. The modular Thyrobox PI can be used for all deposition reactors equipped with Thyrobox VSC or Thyrobox M.
Based on long years of experience and Thyrobox components which have a proven on-site record, ongoing design innovation offers the customer complete solutions that are both state-of-the-art and competitive in the polysilicon industry.
The latest milestone in the Thyrobox power supply design is Thyrobox PI.
Thyrobox™ Process optimization for increasing production volume
Power supply system for enhancing the deposition process(PI = process improvement)
Add-on power supply for Thyrobox M or Thyrobox VSC for increasing the output and enhancing the quality of silicon deposits
Applications in all reactors, e.g., 12, 18, 24 and 27 pair-reactors
Thyrobox PI stands for Process Improvement and represents enormous benefits for the power supply system, including:
- Minimizing problems in the deposition process
- Increase of rod diameter
This results in an overall annual increase in the production volume of the polysilicon plant. Further information on the Thyrobox PI is available in the flyers pertaining to this subject.
Thyrobox M for 24 pairs of rods
W x H x D: 4400 x 2200 x 1600[mm]
The illustration shows a Thyrobox M for a 24-pair CVD reactor. Features include a medium-voltage ignition for all rods in the reactor and power supply for the CVD process.
All Thyrobox power supply systems from AEG Power Solutions worldwide are installed and maintained by a team of well-qualified service technicians having on-site experience with the reactor power supplies used in the production of polysilicon.
