New $2 billion Wacker plant to feature range of diffusers, plenums and grilles.
Wacker Chemical Corporation – a worldwide leader in the large-scale production of hyperpure polysilicon – has chosen AJ Manufacturing to provide a wide range of clean air distribution products for their new plant in Cleveland, Tennessee, located in the greater Chattanooga metropolitan area.
AJ Manufacturing products used throughout the new $2 billion dollar, 550-acre plant complex include custom laminar flow diffusers and plenums (as large as 10’ x 10’), swirl diffusers, as well as supply and return grilles. These clean air distribution devices will help Wacker produce the purest polysilicon material possible, which is primarily used in the production of photovoltaic cells for the solar energy industry and semiconductors for electronics.
Begun in April 2011, construction work on the company’s Tennessee plant is scheduled for completion in mid-2015, and will have an annual capacity of producing 20,000 metric tons of polysilicon, For more information on the AJ products used in its construction, call us at 800-247-5746 or click here to send us an email.
