Dryer Box in the Copper Polish Module

Disclosed is a method for a dryer box designed to dry DIW and slurry saturated wipes, filters, and brushes in the copper polish module. Benefits include eliminating repeated safety violations for having liquid in the trash.

Background

Currently, consumables are left at the sinks to air dry over a period of several shifts. This has caused repeated violations for debris at the sinks, and for having “wet” consumables discarded in the acid waste trash. This approach uses valuable workspace to dry consumables at the sinks. Also, it requires used wipes be placed in double-bagged containers to soak up any liquids from leaking filters.

General Description

The disclosed method is constructed of fire-retardant plastic and has three shelves, an exhaust duct, and two muffin fans that are GFI protected. The dryer box is designed to dry DIW and slurry saturated wipes, filters, and brushes in the copper polish module. The dryer box uses the two muffin fans to circulate air around the wet consumables, allowing them to dry faster than leaving them at the wet sink to air dry before disposal in acid waste trash receptacles. Figure 1 shows the elements of the disclosed method.

Advantages

The disclosed method improves area cleanliness, and eliminates repeated safety violations for having liquid in the trash. It also reduces the number of good dry wipes and garbage bags used.
