What is a Clean Room?
In any manufacturing process where small and microscopic particles can negatively impact the process, a clean room is needed. Generally speaking, a clean room is a room with a controlled amount of contaminants. In most cases the room is completely free of dust particles, bacteria and other small impurities found in the air. Technicians entering and working in a clean room will often need to wear special equipment to prevent contamination. Items such as booties, caps, medical masks or full-body suits are often required.
Who Needs them?
Any industry that relies on manufacturing something in a virtually sterile and contaminate free zone will benefit from a clean room. Specifically, the industries that use them the most include:
- Semiconductor manufacturing
- Military engineering
- And more!
How do Clean Rooms Work?
A clean room works in a similar way a flow hood works, only on a much larger scale. Air is pumped through multiple filters, sometimes even including a HEPA filter. There are two main types of clean rooms that can be used for different purposes.
- Laminar clean room – This type of clean room pushes pure air from the ceiling on to the floor. Using some of the principals of gravity, with a constant and consistent stream of airflow, it can push small particles out of the air and on to the floor where it enters filters and is siphoned out of the room.
- Turbulent clean room – The only difference with a turbulent clean room is that the air is being pushed downward and horizontally, with impurities exiting the room through filters on the wall.
Some clean rooms use HVAC systems to control humidity in the room, but it is not always required, it depends on the unique requirements for the industry.
