What is a Cleanroom?

Wednesday, 04 May 2016 05:33

A cleanroom in simple terms is a sealed room, in which one is able to control the environment, thereby reducing the level of pollutants such as dust, chemical vapours and airborne microbes.

Cleanrooms are used extensively for production, testing and research facilities.

The key component is the HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filter that is used to trap particles of a particular size, measured in microns. All of the air delivered to a cleanroom passes through HEPA filters, and in some cases where stringent cleanliness performance is necessary, ULPA (Ultra Low Particulate Air) filters are used.

Contamination can come from equipment, materials & processes within the Cleanroom as well as the individuals working within that environment.

Clean rooms may have airlocks, air showers and/or gowning rooms, and as with most lab environments the correct clothing is essential. The extent of which is determined by the classification or function of the room. The classification determines the number and size of permissible particles per volume of air. The higher the classification the more particles present.
