What Cleanroom Classification is Necessary?
Your money and resources are valuable. The allowable level of contamination is dictated by specifications for the operations being performed. Building a cleaner room than necessary is a costly mistake. Do your due diligence, and identify exactly what level of environmental control is necessary to achieve the desired results.
Select the Cleanroom Classification Based on the Intended Use
1. Particle Size
The most important factors to consider when constructing a cleanroom are the smallest size of particle that needs to be filtered out and the lowest acceptable particle count.
2. Industry Standards
Most industries have a default classification that serves as a baseline for your project. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) develops and publishes International Standards with world-class specifications for products, services, and systems facilitating international trade. To find your industry’s standards, research your specific field.
3. Air Circulation
Consider how much air needs to be circulated to get the contamination out. The cleanroom design and construction keeps the outside environment from coming in by controlling the external influences. However, air circulation is needed to control and titrate the internal particulates.
4. Contamination Level
Contaminates are constantly generated by people, processes, facilities, and equipment. Consider the acceptable contamination level based on the application. As contamination is an ongoing threat, a specialized filtration system is used to remove and tightly control contamination levels.
5. Cleanroom Classification
Determining a cleanroom classification requires a combination of factors as well as an expert eye to utilize resources responsibility. As a reference, a higher classification is less clean and less expensive.
