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.
Modular cleanrooms (or “clean rooms”) are most often used in manufacturing and research facilities, but, thanks to their versatility and ease of installation, they’re finding use in new industries every day. Any industry or application where small particles can adversely affect manufacturing, production, or packaging processes can benefit from the use of a modular clean room.
A cleanroom or clean room is an environment, typically used in manufacturing or scientific research, with a low level of environmental pollutants such as dust, airborne microbes, aerosol particles, and chemical vapors. More accurately, a cleanroom has a controlled level of contamination that is specified by the number of particles per cubic meter at a specified particle size.
Preventing the growth of microorganisms is essential in most cleanrooms that deal with food, biologicals, or pharmaceuticals. The best way to combat contamination is by constructing floors without cracks and holes so microorganisms cannot hide and propagate.
Desiccator storage has become critical in more and more manufacturing operations. A look at the costly effects of moisture exposure explains why. As critical components become smaller and more sophisticated, their susceptibility to moisture damage increases. Once absorbed by sensitive components, water creates a number of potentially disastrous conditions. Even minute traces of oxidation, the most notorious result of moisture exposure, can degrade soldering and other manufacturing processes.
Pharma Tech Industries, a pharmaceutical contract manufacturer and packager of powder products, recently introduced a highspeed bottling line for the production of Rx, OTC, and nutritional ingestible products at its facility in Union, Mo. The bottling line is housed in a new, specially-built ISO 8 Class 100,000 controlled environment designed for non-sterile Rx pharmaceutical-grade oral products. All equipment is of modular, quick-change design to enable minimal downtime between campaigns.
Controlled Environments spoke with Tee Noland, Chairman and CEO of Pharma Tech Industries, about this cleanroom facility addition.
The pharmaceutical industry is on the cutting edge of scientific progress and research, working around the clock to develop, test, and produce medications and treatments that improve the health outcomes and quality of life for patients across the globe. As pharmaceuticals are such a sensitive and precise science, great care must be taken to ensure that every aspect of the facilities involved, at every step in the process, is designed to protect cleanliness and avoid the risk of contamination. The type of flooring system installed could not be more important than in this industry.
The pharmaceutical industry is on the cutting edge of science, transforming our lives in previously unimaginable ways. The right high-performance pharmaceutical flooring is essential for production plants, research and development labs and other facilities in maintaining their strict hygiene and safety protocols.
In the pharmaceutical research and development industry, scientists, technicians, and other employees are exposed to possibly dangerous or hazardous elements on a daily basis. It’s important to keep the cleanroom environments they work in free from outside elements, in order to maintain an objective and pure environment for research and experimental purposes. We recommend the following cleanroom equipment and components for your pharmaceutical environment.
High-speed doors play a key role in maintaining clean operations in pharmaceutical plants. They are designed to address facility needs for environmental control, productivity and safety (as well as cleanliness). In cleanroom applications, they are used to maintain correct room pressures, air circulation rates and optimal operating efficiency and to prevent cross-contamination. High operating speeds are critical to minimize air infiltration when staff members enter or exit.
