At Newsome, we provide a range of bespoke temperature and humidity control solutions that will optimise the performance of your clean room, help reduce its running costs, maximise the reliability of the equipment operating within the clean room, and maintain the exacting quality levels of the products being produced or processes being undertaken.
A clean room is a controlled environment that is specifically designed to minimise contamination and maintain strict levels of air cleanliness. Air conditioning is critical in maintaining this controlled environment alongside humidity control and air filtration. A clean room is a highly controlled space where the concentration of airborne particles, such as dust, microbes, and chemical vapours, is regulated as well as temperature and humidity to meet specific standards. Clean rooms are essential in industries where product quality, safety, and reliability are of utmost importance, such as pharmaceuticals, electronics, biotechnology, healthcare, semiconductor manufacturing, aerospace, and food processing. These industries require cleanroom environments to ensure the integrity of their products, protect sensitive equipment, and prevent contamination-related issues.
The main objective of a clean room is to control and minimise the introduction, generation, and retention of particles and contaminants that can affect the manufacturing process or compromise the quality of the final product. Controlling the air quality and temperature through air conditioning and the moisture content through the use of dehumidifiers is critical. This is achieved through various measures, including:
Air Filtration: Clean rooms employ highly efficient air filtration systems that remove particles from the air. High-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters or ultra-low particulate air (ULPA) filters are commonly used to trap particles as small as 0.3 micrometres or even smaller.
Air Pressure Control: Clean rooms are designed with positive or negative air pressure differentials to prevent the entry of contaminants from adjacent areas or to control the release of particles to protect sensitive processes.
Temperature and Humidity Control: Clean rooms often require precise control of temperature and humidity levels to ensure optimal manufacturing conditions and prevent moisture-related issues or electrostatic discharge. Newsome provides a range of commercial air conditioning equipment and industrial dehumidifiers to help control temperate and humidity within clean room environments.
Control of Human Activities: Strict protocols and procedures are implemented to limit human-generated contamination. Cleanroom personnel are required to wear appropriate cleanroom garments, such as gowns, gloves, masks, and shoe covers, to minimise the introduction of particles.
Regular Monitoring and Maintenance: Clean rooms undergo regular monitoring, testing, and maintenance to ensure that the air quality and cleanliness standards are consistently met. This includes particle counting, air velocity measurements, microbial monitoring, and filter integrity testing.
Clean rooms play a crucial role in ensuring product quality, reliability, and compliance with industry regulations. They enable industries to manufacture sensitive products with precise specifications, protect valuable equipment, and prevent product failures caused by contamination.
Managing the temperature within clean rooms is critical in optimising business performance.
Many industries that rely on clean rooms, such as pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, and electronics, produce highly sensitive products that are susceptible to temperature variations. Utilising the right air conditioning equipment ensures the stability and integrity of these products throughout the manufacturing process. Fluctuations in temperature can negatively impact product quality, functionality, and reliability.
Clean room environments often involve intricate and precise manufacturing processes. Temperature control is essential to maintaining the desired conditions for these processes. Certain chemical reactions, material properties, and equipment operations are temperature dependent. Any deviations from the specified temperature range can lead to process inefficiencies, variations in product characteristics, or even process failures.
Clean rooms house specialised equipment, such as clean room air handling units, HVAC systems, and sensitive machinery. These equipment components are designed to operate within specific temperature ranges. Failure to maintain the required temperatures can impair the performance and accuracy of the equipment, leading to suboptimal results, increased downtime, or potential damage to the equipment itself.
Temperature control (air conditioning) in clean rooms is closely linked to managing humidity levels. Excessive humidity can lead to condensation, which poses a significant risk of microbial growth, corrosion, and particle agglomeration. Proper temperature and humidity control help mitigate these issues, minimising the potential for contamination and maintaining the cleanliness of the environment.
Clean room personnel spend extended periods working in controlled environments. Maintaining an appropriate temperature range via the use of commercial air conditioning equipment ensures their comfort and well-being, promoting productivity and minimising the risk of heat-related illnesses or discomfort that may impact their performance.
Many industries that utilise clean rooms, such as pharmaceuticals and healthcare, are subject to strict regulatory standards and guidelines. These regulations often include temperature and air conditioning requirements and control measures to ensure product safety and efficacy. Compliance with these regulations is crucial for meeting quality standards, maintaining certifications, and avoiding regulatory penalties.
Managing the air conditioning within clean rooms is vital for ensuring product quality, process control, equipment performance, contamination prevention, employee comfort, and regulatory compliance. By maintaining precise temperature conditions, clean rooms can effectively support critical manufacturing processes and protect the integrity of sensitive products in various industries.
