Incorporating a cleanroom into your facility can appear complex, as you navigate through the various terms, components, and classifications. Nevertheless, we can manage each stage and offer assistance throughout the process.
Panel Built’s conventional wall system can be employed to establish the building envelope, catering to Class 10,000 and Class 100,000 cleanroom wall system requirements. For more advanced systems, Panel Built can modify our wall system to accommodate higher classification levels.
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has established nine cleanroom classifications, determined by the quantity of airborne contaminants. Class 1 rooms contain one particle per 0.5 cubic micrometers of space, while Class 10 rooms have 10 particles within the same measurement.
This pattern continues up to Class 100,000. The class designation signifies the maximum number of particles larger than 0.5 micrometers permitted in a 0.5 cubic micrometer volume.
Cleanrooms frequently employ HEPA and ULPA filters for air purification. These filters can effectively eliminate up to 99.9% of airborne particles through a range of airflow methods. To attain higher-level cleanrooms, anterooms might be necessary, serving as a buffer zone between the highly-controlled environment and the external atmosphere.
Alongside continuous air filtration, cleanrooms typically maintain a positive pressure environment within the space. This indicates that the air pressure inside the room exceeds that of the external surroundings. As a result, when the room’s boundaries are opened, air flows from the cleanroom into the rest of the facility. This directional air movement aids in keeping undesirable particles from infiltrating the cleanroom as staff members come and go.
