GT Advanced Technologies Inc. has introduced a new high-volume hydrochlorination solution capable of producing enough trichlorosilane (TCS) from a single hydrochlorination fluid bed reactor (FBR).

The solution is designed to support polysilicon facilities that are greater than 10,000 metric tons annually in capacity. According to GT, the product lowers the cost of ownership for plants by 20% over current TCS production offerings by eliminating the need for multiple hydrochlorination FBRs.

The hydrochlorination FBR offering also includes GT's new hydrochlorination heater, which delivers further cost savings by increasing conversion in the hydrochlorination FBR from 27% to 30%, GT adds.
