What are the principles of clean room design?

At the core of every design we create, we stand by they key principles of clean room design. These principles are our guiding light, allowing us to create a custom sanitization space that allows you to do your work without the risk of contamination or damage to research and experiments.

These principles are easy to understand at a baseline, allowing us to break it down into 5 primary concepts:

#1. Contamination Control

#2. Airflow Management

#3. Pressure Differentiation

#4. Temperature and Humidity Control

#5. Material Sustainability

The primary objective of any cleanroom is to control contamination.

This means that a cleanroom must regulate the environment to limit the presence of dust, airborne microbes, aerosol particles, and chemical vapors. For example, in a pharmaceutical cleanroom, the use of HEPA-filtered pass-through chambers is often essential. These chambers allow materials to be transferred into the cleanroom without bringing in contaminants, allowing researchers to maintain a sterile environment.

Effective airflow management is crucial in maintaining a contamination-free environment. The design of the cleanroom must facilitate the appropriate movement of air. At the forefront of managing optimal airflow, we can provide fan-powered and ducted HEPA filtration systems.

Consider a semiconductor manufacturing cleanroom where precise control of particulate matter is critical. Here, the implementation of unidirectional (laminar) airflow can be used to ensure that particles are swept away from the manufacturing area, reducing the risk of contamination.

Maintaining different air pressures in adjoining spaces is vital to prevent cross-contamination. Our cleanroom designs often incorporate controlled areas with higher air pressures compared to adjacent spaces, ensuring contaminants are kept at bay.

For example, in a hospital pharmacy compounding cleanroom, maintaining a higher pressure in the clean area compared to adjacent spaces prevents the inflow of contaminated air. This is typically achieved through carefully engineered HVAC systems.

In many environments, even minor deviations in temperature or humidity can have significant impacts on the integrity of experiments, processes, and product quality.

An example of this principle in action is in a biotech research lab where experiments require specific environmental conditions. Here, the cleanroom design might include advanced HVAC systems capable of maintaining the temperature within ±1°C and humidity within ±5% RH.

Last – but certainly not least – a good cleanroom designer should always think about material sustainability. This isn’t sustainability in the modern sense of the word, but in the sense of durability. Every material used in a cleanroom, from the walls and floors to the ceilings and fixtures, must be non-particle shedding and easy to clean.

At R.P. Fedder, we select materials that not only meet these requirements but also enhance the overall functionality of your cleanroom. For instance, in an electronics assembly cleanroom, static-sensitive components necessitate the use of anti-static materials. This could include ESD (Electrostatic Discharge) flooring, work surfaces, and chairs to prevent static build-up that can damage sensitive electronics.

Or, our approach to cleanroom design is rooted in these principles, ensuring that every project we undertake is aligned with your goals. We perform to the highest standards of quality and efficiency, innovating in the cleanroom and filtration industry with every new project.

By choosing us, you’re not just selecting a product or cleanroom designer, but a partner in design who understands and applies these fundamental principles to deliver a solution that meets and exceeds your expectations.
