Edwards, a leading manufacturer of sophisticated vacuum products and abatement systems and a leading provider of related value-added services, has announced that it has reached a significant milestone.

The company has sold more than 10,000 abatement systems since it entered the business nearly 20 years ago. In addition, Edwards placed number two in VLSI Research’s “Top 10 Suppliers of Critical Subsystems 2011” report for the semiconductor and flat panel display industries.

“The growing concern about the environment and climate change has spurred increasing awareness of the need to abate a variety of potentially harmful industrial by-products,”

Steve Cottle, Edwards’ exhaust management systems product manager, added, “For example, in 2011, our systems were responsible for abating the equivalent of 8,500,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide at our customer facilities, equal to 98% of the net carbon dioxide emitted annually by industrial processes in the U.K.”

The majority of the abatement systems sold has been from Edwards’ inward fired combustor product range, which includes its TPU and Atlas products.
