Cleanroom in Malaysia
A cleanroom is an environment, typically used in manufacturing or scientific research, that has a low level of environmental pollutants such as dust, airborne microbes, aerosol particles and chemical vapors. More accurately, a cleanroom has a controlled level of contamination that is specified by the number of particles per cubic meter at a specified particle size.
Cleanroom (Clean Facility) is a room (facility) in which the air supply, air distribution, filtration of air supply, materials of construction, and operating procedures are regulated to control airborne particle concentrations to meet appropriate cleanliness levels.
Cleanroom Descriptions as below :
- Class 1 cleanroom
- Class 10 cleanroom
- Class 100 cleanroom
- Class 1000 cleanroom
- Class 10000 cleanroom
- Class 100000 cleanroom
Equipment inside the cleanroom is designed to generate minimal air contamination. Even specialised mops and buckets exist. Cleanroom furniture is also designed to produce a minimum of particles and to be easy to clean.
Common materials such as paper, pencils, and fabrics made from natural fibers are often excluded; however, alternatives are available. Cleanrooms are not sterile and more attention is given to airborne particles. Particle levels are usually tested using a particle counter.
Some cleanrooms are kept at a positive pressure so that if there are any leaks, air leaks out of the chamber instead of unfiltered air coming in.
Some cleanroom HVAC systems control the humidity to low levels, such that extra equipment ("ionizers") are necessary to prevent electrostatic discharge (ESD) problems.
Air Scrubber as cleanroom equipment in Malaysia
An air scrubber is a device that is used to remove particles, gases, or chemicals from the air within a given area. While most air filtration systems of this type are designed to handle only one of these types of pollutants, there are a few industrial air cleaners that will handle two and even all three contaminants. Most scrubbers are configured to complete at least six cycles of operation each hour, helping to keep the air in the space free of any type of contamination.
Another application of the air scrubber as an essential part of workplace safety equipment is to remove gases from the air within a space. This can be especially helpful in laboratories and other facilities where fumes are common. The effective fumes control of the right scrubber significantly reduces exposure to gases that over time could have a detrimental impact on the health of anyone working in the area.
Air Scrubber systems are a diverse group of air pollution control devices that can be used to remove some particulates and/or gases from industrial exhaust streams. Traditionally, the term "scrubber" has referred to pollution control devices that use liquid to wash unwanted pollutants from a gas stream. Recently, the term is also used to describe systems that inject a dry reagent or slurry into a dirty exhaust stream to "wash out" acid gases.
Air scrubbers are one of the primary devices that control gaseous emissions, especially acid gases. Air scrubbers can also be used for heat recovery from hot gases by flue gas condensation.
