Paper Title:
A Diagnostic Technique for the Inspection of Pipes in MOCVD System
  Abstract

In examining particulate deposits in the pipes within a chemical vapor deposition (CVD) system, vibration diagnostics is compared and studied against ultrasonic diagnostics. The latter method involves pulsing the outer wall of pipes with an ultrasonic sensor and analyzing the resulting echo to observe particulate deposits inside pipes. Vibration diagnostics examines the existence of particulate deposits by analyzing the difference in the frequencies generated when a vibrator is adhered to the outer wall of pipes. With ultrasonic diagnostics, good test results were obtained only when particulate deposits were attached to the inner wall of the pipes. After some time, however, particulate deposits were not detected properly, as the ultrasonic wave failed to cross the fine gaps created between the inner wall of the pipe and the deposits. In conclusion, the vibration diagnostics is being expected as the effective method in monitoring the particulate deposits inside pipes in the CVD system where the desired behavior is reduced frequency along with the the particulate deposits in comparison to the case where the pipe is clean.
