Air Showersare self contained chambers installed at entrances to clean rooms and controlled environments. Air showers quickly and effectively remove particulate that otherwise would be carried into a clean room. They are intended as the "final polish" after gowning prior to entering a clean room environment. Air showers from Clean Air Products are ideal for a variety ofclean room applications in industries including pharmaceutical/ bio processing; semiconductor/electronics; and automotive painting and finishing.Worker cleanliness is essential in any workplace where contamination control is the norm. Although water showers can help you reduce soil on your body, air showers are an effective means of removing contamination from your work clothes.
Facilities use air showers to minimize the movement of biological contaminants attached to other particles. Air showers are enclosed chambers with entry/exit systems, and they use door interlocks and timers to direct strong bursts of air that dislodge contaminants on personnel or parts.The greatest source of particulate contamination in a clean room is the operator. Air showers are installed between change areas and the clean room. The air shower enhances clean room operating protocol by serving as a reminder to all operators that they are entering a controlled environment. Personnel therefore develop the habit of gowning up properly before entering the air shower.
Identifying Users of Air Showers..
Electronics manufacturers use air showers because of the sensitive nature of constructing integrated circuits or chips. Strict sanitation is also required in the pharmaceutical industry, where the design and development of drugs and medications are prevalent. Air showers are also employed in the biotech industry, where clean rooms are used to experiment with bio-molecular and cellular processes. Similarly, in the medical industry, workers take air showers to ensure that surgical procedures are kept sterile.
Air showers are beneficial for contamination control across many industries. By making the work atmosphere cleaner and safer for personnel and products, air showers form a reliable link to clean rooms. Users of air showers can help to maintain high standards of air cleanliness by following proper protocol and operation parameters.
