ISO 14644 standards regulate the air purity in a manufacturing environment. These standards used in pharmaceutical, aerospace, and microelectronic applications to ensure a minimal amount of particulates that are present in the air. Before a facility can be tested for certification, there are many things that have to be considered. Type of filtration units, intake and exhaust layouts, room pressurization, room temperature, and many other factors can greatly alter the cleanliness of the laboratory. The amount of engineering that drives a cleanroom is quite remarkable!
Our lab is equipped with HEPA filters that operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with a room temperature of 62 degrees to keep the air as clean as possible by trapping particles as small as .3 micrometers, also known as microns.
