Pass-through cabinets, also called pass-through chambers and pass-through windows, allow for the transfer of parts and equipment into and out of a cleanroom.  
These specialized entry systemseduce the need for people to enter your cleanroom, and, thanks to lower traffic within the cleanroom, contamination is significantly reduced.

How to Choose the Right Wall Mounted Pass-Thru for Your Application

Pass-through chambers and other cleanroom equipment help prevent contamination and enable manufacturers to comply with industry quality standards. Wall mounted pass-thrus are used by medical and pharmaceutical industries as well as food processing, air and spacecraft, and computers and consumer electronics. Pass-thrus all have similar design standards and features and are manufactured in three levels, including: In addition to your cleanroom equipment requirements, additional considerations in choosing the right pass-through chamber for your application include:
  • How the pass-through chamber will be mounted to the cleanroom
  • Size of wall spaces and any obstructions that will affect door swings
  • Type of material that will be transferred through the cabinet
  • Method of material transfer (by hand, conveyor belt, etc.)
  • How the pass-thru will be used by personnel
  • Any specialized requirements including HEPA filters, fire-rated doors, or pneumatic sliding doors

Clean Air Products’ Pass-Through Chambers

Clean Air Products offers standard and custom pass-thru chambers and other cleanroom equipment to meet your needs. Our pass-thru cabinets feature stainless steel construction—not the particle board that other manufacturers use.

Our stainless steel pass-thru chambers are constructed with a welded stainless steel shell and unique double-wall construction that encloses and protects the mechanical interlock. This double wall also creates a lipless, flush floor for easy material transfer and cleaning. These wall-mounted pass-thru cabinets are extremely strong and durable, are easy to clean, and provide superior aesthetics for your cleanroom or pharmacy. Except for the viewing windows, these pass-thru chambers are made entirely of metal.
All of our cleanroom pass-through cabinets feature doors with heavy-duty stainless steel frames, stainless steel continuous hinges, tempered safety glass windows, silicone bulb gaskets, and stainless steel over-center compression latches. Stainless steel door frames add strength and prevent long-term warpage and cracking, a common problem with all-plastic doors.

Our wall mounted pass-thru cabinets are available with mechanical interlocks to prevent both doors from being opened at the same time. This helps prevent cleanroom depressurization and contaminant infiltration.
