Spin drying 250um wafers

We have processed 250um thick wafers, with a bunch of large holes in them to

break. It also obviously depends on the spin speed and how well balanced the
particular SRD is.

...have not tried 250, but I know for a fact that 100um wafers DO
turn into glitter if you put them in the SRDers.
