Clean rooms are used in various different fields, like in nuclear electronics, medical science, and life science and even in industrial fields. No matter where you use the clean room, the room must need a careful and faultless maintenance. Whether it is used in a technological semi-conductor application or in the field of biotechnology the maintenance of a clean room is absolutely critical.
It needs a proper maintenance of HVAC prevention. There are many different types of clean rooms which are constructed on this application. And these different types of clean rooms need different types of clean room products including air controlling, water waste controlling and dust controlling system. The filtration of the air and the times of changing the air are also dependent on this application.
The division of the maintenance task
The maintenance of the clean room is need in 24*7 hours because the room is used for seven days of a week. So, the equipment and as well as the atmosphere of the room need constant maintenance. Depending on this the maintenance can be divided into two different parts. The first one is the filter maintenance and the second one is the equipment maintenance. For better results you professional services of clean room maintenance can be hired. The professionals have adequate knowledge and use different types of products to clean and maintain it. Several companies that sell products, like air showers for clean rooms, etc., also offer maintenance services. And hiring them is worth it.
1. The filter maintenance- it is an important part to support the maintenance of the clean room. The clean rooms are used for 24*7 hours, as said above. So, the filters are also used for the same time to flow the waste material, waste water and polluted air. The continuous flow through the filter can cause the filter to be choked with dirt and dust. There is a heavy chance that the filters which are used regularly can be fouled faster than the equipment and devices which are used at a regular distance. The filters which are used in the clean room are the HEPA type of filters. The filters are usually preceded by the high density bag or boxes or the magnehelic metered box or bags. These bags or boxes are then preceded by other filters. The HEPA filters are very much expensive to buy and the maintenance of this type of filter is very costly and time consuming. The bags or the boxes of magnehelic meter are also very expensive, that is why the filters between them must be replaced at the distance of time.
2. Maintenance of the equipment- equipment and devices need a proper shutdown of the whole system first. If you keep some spare parts at your hand, then the whole system will not be needed to close down at the same time. The contractor will be replaced easily.
