Do you know whether your cleanroom still meets the desired ISO class?
Managing Director Niels Ferguson explains: “Due to use, aging, contamination or damage to components, it is possible that the cleanroom no longer achieves its desired ISO class. A higher than desired ISO-class can have very adverse effects on the work process and end product(s).”
- More time and effort may be required to clean the end product to the correct specifications (Grade 4 and Grade 2 specs, for example). Which results in a lower production speed.
- Larger amount of cleaning products are needed to achieve the desired specifications. Which results in higher production costs per product.
- The product can become contaminated after cleaning and inspection, before it is packaged.
“Cleanroom – Room in which the concentration of airborne particles is controlled and classified, and which is constructed and used in a manner to minimize the introduction, generation and retention of particles inside the area.”
