Clean Room Manufacturing
Do your products require clean room manufacturing? How will your products benefit from it? Why is clean room manufacturing important for your products? These are the questions engineers and manufacturers need to consider. We will break down its relevance.
Let’s begin by clearly defining a clean room. A clean room is a set space where unseen substances from either the environment or people within the room are controlled to reduce particulate matter size and quantity.
Being a positive-pressure workspace reduces contaminants within clean rooms. This translates to a room that has a greater pressure than the outside environment’s pressure. The room pressure paired with HEPA (High-Efficiency Particle Air) or ULPA (Ultra-Low Particulate Air) air filters ensure the clean room remains uncontaminated.
Generally, the more cyclic air exchange, the lower the room particulate in terms of size and quantity. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) ranks clean rooms into nine classes. The organization divides the classes according to the number of particles present per unit volume.
The purpose of every clean room is to control an environment by minimizing the presence of sub-micron particles and modifying inadequate environmental conditions. The exposure to sub-micron particles could impact product integrity and lead to defective products in the case of materials such as adhesives or flexible materials.
Almost every industry where small particles could adversely affect the manufacturing process benefit from clean rooms. They are beneficial for high-demand industries such as medical, electronics, and automotive & aerospace.
PLITEK® ISO Class 8 Clean Room Manufacturing
At PLITEK®, we offer both hard wall and soft wall ISO Class 8 clean room manufacturing for every step of the manufacturing process. With well over 15 years of experience with clean room environments, quality remains a top priority. We consistently collect and retain reports documenting particle count at rest and during medical part production. PLITEK® has the ability to use clean rooms to produce materials and parts, conduct inspections, and package parts to ensure they are free from contamination.
