I did a 1000'C, 1.5 hr wetox for 0.5 um oxide on 3 brand new b-test wafers, and one of the wafers came out with some cracks, and two places on the side were even curved / bent (looks like some clamp marks).
The other two wafers are completely normal though.
I believe I didn't put the wafer in cross-slots. Not sure whether that particular slot has any problem. I used the 2nd cassette from left in Thermco2 and just want to let people know about this.
