North American R&D facility builds prototypes
Situation: North American R&D facility of U.S.-based leading global security company builds prototypes of unmanned airborne systems for the purpose of testing and validation. Parts are produced in limited numbers throughout the fabricating shop. Component building process involves the use of adhesives that will only successfully bond within very specific temperature and humidity ranges that require climate control. In addition, the bonding process requires a clean room environment and has to be applied...
The Importance of Explosion Proof Lights in Cleanrooms
Cleanrooms are pushing the limits of industrial manufacturing and scientific research programs. For professionals, the rooms provide a predictable environment with low levels of stray pollutants, germs, dust and chemical vapors. Activities conducted in cleanrooms are carried out with greater precision and safety. Class 1 Division 1 Explosion Proof Lights Explosion proof lights are typically installed in cleanrooms to prevent sparks from igniting flammable or combustible elements in the hazardous location....
Sources of Particles in Cleanrooms
Viable particles consists of bacteria, virus, fungal spores, molds, and yeast. These are generally obtained from people, outside air, water, equipment, tools, excipients, and active ingredients. The objectives of environmentally controlled cleanrooms are to provide a contamination-free space to test or manufacturer contamination free products. Nonetheless, contamination has a way of unexpectedly occurring without any indication of its origin. There are two types of contaminates: viable and non-viable (or...
Oxygen Monitor for FOUPs in Semiconductors and Cleanrooms
Over time, the contamination control requirements in the semiconductor industry have become more stringent. Employees now must spend more time adhering to cleaning protocols to preserve the sanitary nature of the environment and comply with regulations. The front-end unified pod (or FOUP) began appearing in semiconductors in the 1990s, serving as a transportation box to safely and securely hold silicon wafers and ensure easier compliance with the industry`s contamination control requirements. FOUPs allow the...
