Cleanrooms & Universities: Cleanroom Components For Higher Education

Building and maintaining a complex system of hardwall cleanrooms in a university setting requires a company that understands the specifications unique to higher education. Vernick & Associates is proud to assist educational campuses within the greater Cleveland area with the entire cleanroom process, from start to finish. Whether your team is looking for assistance in the areas of science, engineering, medical, agriculture, or several other fields, adding the following components will keep your cleanroom working at 100% efficiency.Recirculating Air SystemRecirculating air systems are particularly helpful when the control of the air inside the cleanroom is of the utmost importance. More effective than a single-pass system, a recirculating air system does not re-use the filtered air. It tightly controls the temperature and humidity inside the hardwall cleanroom.Particle Monitoring SystemsMost airborne contaminants are invisible to the human eye. This is where an airborne particle counter can help monitor the number of particles … Continued

Why Cleanrooms Are Necessary for the Manufacturing Industry

With the strict standards many manufacturing processes must follow today, cleanrooms are the ideal solution for maintaining rigidly-controlled environments. Both the hardwall and softwall cleanrooms from Vernick & Associates have the ability to provide control over humidity, air contamination, air pressure, and temperature. Along with ensuring a consistent and meticulous work environment, our cleanrooms also provide the following benefits necessary for a clean manufacturing process.Restricted AccessOur hardwall cleanrooms are designed to limit access only to necessary staff and personnel. Other employees that are not essential to the manufacturing process can accidentally bring unwanted dust, particles, and other pollutants with them. Contaminant-Free EnvironmentThe rigid walls of a hardwall cleanroom are designed to ensure that the room is completely closed off from the outside environment. These pre-fabricated wall systems work perfectly with a recirculating air system, especially when your specific process needs the added advantage of a strict contaminant-free environment.Strict Levels of ControlFor … Continued
