Clean rooms are controlled environments that are designed to limit the number of outside contaminants entering the space.
Depending on the use and ISO Class, these rooms must maintain near sterile conditions, even while in operation. This means that the walls of the room must be vapor tight and have an exceptional seal to limit all forms of dust, debris, and unwanted airborne contaminants from invading the interior space.
A clean room is also used in processes where hazardous, dangerous or explosive materials are being handled. They must keep those potentially harmful or fatal materials from escaping into the outside atmosphere.
Clean rooms are primarily used for pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, and the protection of electronic equipment. For example, these rooms are required to manufacture semiconductors and microchips, which must be built according to strict tolerances and in a contamination-free environment.
These rooms are also commonly used in other applications requiring high operational purity, including scientific research, virology, nuclear, life science manufacturing, and data recovery.
In these applications, the clean-room setup may consist of smaller chambers where technicians can change into personal protective equipment (PPE) or be disinfected before entering or exiting the room.
Clean rooms are necessary for these applications because of the delicate nature of the items being manufactured or stored.
There is no one-size-fits-all clean-room design, large or small one large room or many individual rooms, clean rooms can be designed to any specification.
