Clean rooms provide controlled environments for the production of contaminant-free products. Air showers play a vital role in maintaining these clean-critical settings by removing loose particles of contamination from people and products before they enter the clean room.
 
Self-cleaning air showers help reduce product defects and increase production yields. These devices can also improve the performance of and reduce maintenance needs for the clean room itself by lowering the overall contamination load. Without an air shower’s “pre-cleaning” process, a cleanroom’s air filtration system would have to absorb all contaminants, which would increase energy consumption and maintenance costs.

Clean Air Products designs and manufactures cleanroom air showers in a range of standard air shower sizes and configurations. We have self-cleaning air showers to meet most customer requirements; however, if your cleanroom requires a special or unique entry system, we also provide custom air showers that are built to match your unique specifications.

How Do Clean Room Air Showers Work?


Our standard cleanroom air showers are self-contained air recirculation systems that are specially designed for installation at clean room entry points. These phone booth-like cleanroom entry systems use high-velocity air to decontaminate personnel, equipment, and supplies as they make their way into the cleanroom.
 
As workers enter the air shower, the entry door closes and powerful jets of HEPA-filtered air blow over the worker from a number of adjustable, precisely-placed nozzles. These high velocity air streams blast contaminants large and small from the worker’s cleanroom garments. Once the cycle is complete, the exit door of the self-cleaning air shower opens, and the worker moves on into the cleanroom itself.
 
Typical cycle completion for our standard cleanroom air showers is just 20 seconds. Microprocessor controls allow for fast and easy on-site adjustment of cycle times and other critical functions.
 

Cleanroom Air Shower Tunnels Prevent Contamination Between Cleanrooms


Standard cleanroom air showers can be combined to create self-cleaning air shower tunnels for environments where two or more cleanrooms are being utilized. Cleanroom air shower tunnels effectively remove particles as personnel and products travel between cleanrooms, significantly reducing the risk of contamination between work areas that have different ISO ratings.
 
Up to five standard cleanroom air showers can be combined based on your requirements. Learn more and view the specifications by clicking on the product links below.

Choosing the Right Clean Room Air Shower


Finding the right cleanroom entry systems for your facility is not always easy. To determine what standard cleanroom air shower you need, consider the following factors:
  • The air shower should be modular to allow for easy configuration/reconfiguration, shipment, and assembly
  • Outer shell of the air shower should be constructed of stainless or painted steel
  • The blower system must provide high volumes of air at high velocity to effectively decontaminate personnel, equipment, etc.
  • Clean room air showers should have a high number of air nozzles; nozzles should be adjustable
  • The unit should include a magnetic door interlock system, with appropriate controls
