What is a Clean Room?
A cleanroom is a controlled environment where products are manufactured. It is a room in which the concentration of airborne particles is controlled to specified limits. Eliminating sub-micron airborne contamination is really a process of control. These contaminants are generated by people, process, facilities and equipment. They must be continually removed from the air. The level to which these particles need to be removed depends upon the standards required. The most frequently used standard is the Federal Standard 209E. The 209E is a document that establishes standard classes of air cleanliness for airborne particulate levels in cleanrooms and clean zones. Strict rules and procedures are followed to prevent contamination of the product. AHI has experience with Class1 thru Class 10,000 rated Clean Rooms.
What Room Surfaces are Cleaned?
To eliminate potential contamination, all cleanroom surfaces; rafters, interstitial spaces, duct work, plenum areas, ceiling panels, T-bars, lighting, ionizing grids, return air vents, walls, windows, work stations, equipment surfaces, cabinets, sinks, shelves, furniture, doors, pass-throughs, air locks, floor mats, floors and raised floors, and sub fabs require periodic cleaning.
How is the Controlled Environment Cleaned?
AHI’s Technicians’ have been trained to clean all cleanroom surfaces using its cleaning methodology; top-down starting at the cleanest end of the cleanroom space to the least clean, and working your way out of the room. AHI’s Technicians’ methods ensure that the maximum amount of particles are captured and the least amount of cross-contamination occurs.
What About Supplies and Equipment?
Cleanroom supplies must be selected to meet the cleaning and disinfecting demands and eliminate recontamination. Cleanroom detergents are ULPA filtered to .1 microns. Disinfectants are selected based on bio-contamination, rotation and the commodity produced. The vacuum cleaner exhaust is filtered .1 microns. Wipes are cleanroom approved and chosen for surface compatibility. Di water is used with strict protocol. AHI associates make suggestions and select the most compatible products that will perform best in your environment in an effort to avoid recontamination.
