The category of your cleanroom will determine the specific type of materials that can be used in its construction or within it. For instance, acceptable solvents and garment materials vary amongst the different classes of cleanroom.
Buyer beware: There is no easy way to choose which floor, wall or ceiling is best for your cleanroom. Depending on your application, sifting through products can be similar to buying a car – so many choices, not enough information.
Deciding whether your cleanroom should be modular instead of drywall is not the only decision a project team has to make when considering a cleanroom. In most cases, the choice of panels is not as clear cut as once was the norm. Different requirements and needs may lead to different material selection. This article will outline the pros and cons for the different solutions and the consequences from the technical and financial point of view that these choices will generate.
As we know, the most important source of contamination in a controlled environment is the human operator. Does that mean that the choice of the material used to build your modular cleanroom does not have any impact on the daily operativity of your facility and eventually the ROI?
When you are planning to build a cleanroom for your business, process or production – the first primary consideration should be – which type of cleanroom suits your needs? Thanks to the years of evolution, but in present times, the cleanroom industry has expanded to its mammoth size and the choices are very contradictory.
Product integrity and throughput suffers when airborne particles or volatile organic compounds (VOCs) invade microelectronics environments. Depending on the application, one particular size particle or contaminant characterization may be more problematic than another.
The cleanroom door is different from ordinary home doors. It is beyond the reach of ordinary home doors in terms of performance, accessories, and manufacturing technology. Because of its superb and complicated cleanroom environment, many customers have a headache in purchasing cleanroom doors.
The ability to construct a cleanroom in any space is a major advantage of the modular cleanroom building process. Retrofit cleanrooms can still reach a wide variety of ISO cleanroom classifications. With a modular cleanroom retrofit in your existing structure, you have the ability to adapt your existing structure to save space and materials. Let’s take a look at where you can build a cleanroom in your existing space, and what that process looks like.
Designing and cleanroom construction process focuses on the actual construction process. In the first three installments of this series, we reviewed the standards and guidelines that govern cleanroom design and then looked at the specific systems and components used to maintain the pristine conditions required in a cleanroom.
Building out a cleanroom and adjacent environments is a multi-stage construction process and particular protocols must be maintained at each stage of the construction to ensure the integrity of the cleanroom. The stages are:
