Letter From the Editor - February 2013
Construction is just the beginning of the process of getting a cleanroom operational. The next step is certification. Why is it important, how is it done, and who regulates it?
Consistent air particle monitoring, whether done by in-house staff or a third party vendor, is critical to maintaining a necessary level of cleanliness for specific controlled environments.
Modular structures can be a key tool for creating controlled environments that are not just clean, but also green.
Though destructive product testing demonstrates the PPE characteristics of certain fabrics and garment systems, are they fit for stringent cleanroom use?
How should absorbable materials be used? How should they be monitored and controlled?
Sustainability advantages come in flexible packages.
How trained pros can help you verify cleanroom design and functionality.
Proper and accurate measurement of particles is what keeps a cleanroom clean.
High levels of environmental control have long driven design, purchasing, and operational decisions for cleanrooms. Today, sustainability issues - from energy efficiency to materials use to long-term adaptability - are also beginning to influence the conversation between those who operate controlled environments and those who design, build, and install them. Modular cleanrooms offer some distinct benefits for those trying to create more sus
