cleanroom temperature

An effective cleanroom controls the amount of particulate matter in the air according to specification, but cleanrooms often operate under strict temperature and humidity conditions as well. Why do cleanroom temperature and humidity matter? There are three main reasons: controlling the shedding of skin cells and other biomatter, controlling static, and ensuring the comfort of […]

The primary purpose of a cleanroom is to limit the concentration of airborne particles to specification, but there are many other factors that can be controlled in order to create a specific environment. Static, pressurization, temperature, humidity, and even sound can be controlled with certain modifications. Do you need a soundproof cleanroom? Let’s go through […]

cleaning your cleanroom

A properly designed cleanroom operates to maintain cleanliness within the space to specification. Unfortunately, your cleanroom will not remain in the pristine condition it was when it was first installed and validated. Every time people or products enter the cleanroom space, there is an opportunity to introduce contamination. Both staff training and regular cleaning and […]

A vital part of any cleanroom is its barrier system. Its walls and doors work together to keep contaminants out of the room while the air filtration system cleans the air inside. Stick-built cleanrooms are built using traditional construction methods, but with modular cleanrooms, there are different options available for you to choose from when […]

In our previous blog about cleanroom walls we talked about the potential for adding additional walls within the cleanroom. If your space requires a separate room or area such as a gowning room or an anteroom, a modular cleanroom can be adjusted to accommodate that need. If you are in the early stages of planning your […]

cleanroom validation

One of Technical Air Products’ most frequently asked questions is: How long does cleanroom installation take? It’s obviously important to anyone investing in a cleanroom to know how long it will take before the room can be up and running. Part of this process is installation, and the other part is the cleanroom validation process. […]

cleanroom behavior

When we think of common cleanroom contaminants, what comes to mind is dust, lint, fibers, and a variety of other particulate matter. Yet how do those contaminants enter the cleanroom? It’s not by osmosis – the airtight walls prevent that. People are the most common source of contamination. They bring it with them when they […]

In several previous blog pieces we have talked about different types of isolation rooms, including positive air pressure rooms and negative air pressure rooms. In this blog we will talk about anterooms and how they can be used with other types of isolation rooms to maintain cleanliness within the room.  What Is an Anteroom?  Within a healthcare setting, […]

prevent contamination

The focus of cleanroom design is rarely on its lighting, but this is a crucial element of cleanroom operation. Proper lighting makes it possible for workers to do their jobs correctly, control contamination, and maintain the temperature within the room. Energy efficient lighting also lowers operating costs, which is a concern for any organization. What […]

new cleanroom

A cleanroom is an investment in the productivity of your business or organization. Of course you’ll want to see as much return on that investment as possible and use it as long as you can. However, there are times or circumstances that arise that make an updated cleanroom the best solution to specific challenges. How […]
