This guide is all about learning more about the clean room air filter and how best to use one for your clean room. Let us get into the guide already.
What Is a Clean Room Air Filter?
Figure 1: High Efficiency Clear Room Air Filter
The clean room air filter is a device meant to trap dust, dirt, and other particulates to keep them from getting into the clean room.
The filter would also purify the air further to ensure that the air that enters in the clean room meets its requirements.
Depending on the clean room requirements, you are likely to come across different types of clean room air filters in the market.
The most common classifications would be primary filters, medium efficiency filters, high efficiency filters, sub-high efficiency filters, and ulpa filter.
With the many clean room air filter options in the market, it can get confusing sometimes.
We recommend that you talk to us for more information so that you can pick the right clean room air filter for your needs.
What Are the Standard Clean Room Air Filter Classifications and Their Characteristics?
Figure 2: Primary and Medium Efficiency Filter
We will look at the common standard clean room air filter classification to help you understand what the filters are all about.
✧ Primary Efficiency Filter
This type of clean room air filter is good for removing dust particles ≥5μm and its initial resistance is ≤50Pa.
You will find it mostly being used as a clean room pre-filter in air conditioning systems.
The idea is to trap as much dust particles as possible so that it does not get to the medium and high efficiency clean room air filters. This will largely extend the service life of the other types of filters.
✧ Medium Efficiency Filter
After the primary efficiency filter, next in line is the medium efficiency clean room air filter. The filter is designed to remove dust particles of size ≥1μm and its initial resistance is ≤80Pa.
This filter will also be used in the air conditioning system to further reduce the load on the high efficiency clean room air filter.
It will then prolong the service life of the high efficiency filter and other important air-conditioning box accessories.
✧ Sub-High Efficiency Filter
Another type is the sub-high efficiency filter that you can use as a clean room air filter. This type of filter is good for removing dust particles of up to ≥0.5μm and the initial resistance ≤120Pa.
This is also a good choice as an intermediate filter in the air conditioning system. It can still be used as the terminal filter in a low-level purification system.
✧ High Efficiency Filter
This type of clean room air filter will remove dust particles of size ≥0.3μm and its initial resistance ≤220Pa.
In most cases, this will be the terminal filter in a clean room. The terminal filter means that it would be the last one to filter the air before it gets released into the clean room.
Because of its performance, it can help the clean room maintain its integrity even better.
✧ Ultra-High Efficiency Filter (Ulpa Filter)
Figure 3: Ultra-High Efficiency Clean Room Air Filter (Ulpa Filter)
For this type, it can remove dust parts of size ≥0.1μm and its initial resistance is ≤280Pa.
It is also a terminal clean room air filter in air conditioning systems.
It would be used in a clean room where the air purification has to meet very strict guidelines.
What Is a Junior High-Efficiency Air Filter? And What Are the Common Classifications of The Same?
The junior high efficiency clean room air filter would mostly be used in the general ventilation air conditioning system.
Its main aim would be to protect the rear-stage filter and the surface cooler heating coil from cases of blockage.
The result is that the filter would increase the service life of these other parts in the air conditioning system.
Below are the common classifications of the junior high efficiency clean room air filter you can buy at Zonsteel. The classification is majorly based on the structural differences between the filters. Let us check them out.

Because of its features, it is mainly used for medium efficiency, sub-high efficiency, and high efficiency filtration. It all comes down to what the customer wants in terms of a clean room air filtration.
How Do You Pick the Best Junior High Efficiency Clean Room Air Filter?
Figure 7: Clean Room Air Filter Manufacturing
Now that you know the different types of junior high efficiency clean room air filters, what would you consider when choosing them for your clean room applications? Below are important considerations to always have in your mind to end up with the best clean room air filter.
✧ You need to consider the inlet and outlet diameter of your junior high efficiency clean room air filter. We recommend that the inlet and outlet diameters of the filter should not be smaller compared to the inlet diameter of the matching pump. In most cases, the diameter would be the same as the inlet pipe diameter.
✧ Look at the normal pressure that the clean room air filter can handle. This will be the highest pressure that the clean room air filter would be able to handle. The pressure specification will be among the filter specifications to help you know if it will be suitable for your application.
✧ Select the junior high efficiency clean room air filter based on the number of holes. The number of holes will determine the particle size of the impurities that would be trapped in the medium. Look at the filter specifications to see what is the size of dust particles that the junior high efficiency clean room air filter can trap.
✧ The filter material is also important to keep in mind when choosing the best clean room air filter. The material needs to offer you the best service life while at the same time filtering the dust particles better.
✧ Another important consideration is the filter resistance loss calculation. The resistance is measured in terms of pascals. Look at this flow rate in the product specifications to see if it would match to your clean room design requirements.
If you still have questions about choosing the best clean room air filter, Zonsteel can help you learn more about them before you can choose the right one for your clean room.
What Should You Consider When Choosing Primary, Medium, and High-Efficiency Clean Room Air Filters?
Figure 8: High Efficiency Clean Room Air Filter without Partition

✧ Look at the efficiency of the clean room air filter at different levels of the air conditioning system. When designing this system, you need to know the filtration requirements at different stages. It is from the design that you would know which section needs the primary, medium, or the high efficiency clean room air filter.
✧ The resistance of the filter needs to be monitored more often. This will depend on the filter material and the quality of air it has to process. Then the resistance of the clean room air filter goes beyond a certain value, then the filter is scrapped as it is no longer efficient. Having excessive resistance might cause secondary pollution and thus the need to replace such a filter.
✧ You also have to look at the dust holding capacity of the clean room air filter. This will often determine its service life. There is no doubt you would want a clean room air filter with the best dust holding capacity.
What Is the Production Process and Quality Control Checks of a High Efficiency Clean Room Air Filter?
Figure 9: Efficiency Clean Room Air Filter Production Process
A high efficiency filter is mostly used in collecting dust particulate of size below 0.3μm. It is why you will find it being a terminal air filter in most systems.
Once the other types of filters have trapped most of the dust particles, then it can be the last one to handle the air for the final stage.
Because of hepa filter clean room design, this type of hepa will be used in dust-free purification workshops, clean rooms, precision instrument factories, and many others that need a high level of air purification.
So, what is the production process like? Here is a quick overview of the production process for the high efficiency clean room air filter.
✧ Testing the raw materials to see if they meet the quality needs of Zonsteel
✧ What follows is the importation of the filter paper origami important for making the air filter

How Can You Make the Service Life of The High Efficiency Clean Room Air Filter Better?
Figure 13: Clean Room Air Filter
No one wants to keep on changing their high efficiency clean room air filter more often. This is because it can be expensive and an inconvenience for some. So, we will look at the possible ways of extending the life of your high efficiency clean room air filter.
The first thing you have to do is to have a pre-filter or a primary filter in the air conditioning system. The work of the pre filter is to remove as much dust and dirt as possible. It will further protect the medium filter before the air can get to the high efficiency filter.
If you can care for your high efficiency filter, then it would be able to have a service life of 5 years or more. There are those who can stretch it to 10 years depending on the care.
What you might have to replace mostly would be the primary filter. This is because it would be the one that catches all the dirt and dust. With a good primary filter in place, it can reduce the resistance load and save you a lot on electricity bills.
Where you get to use the high efficiency filter can also determine its durability. Take an example of where you use it in a workshop that has fumes of hydrofluoric acid. When this air gets to the high efficiency clean room air filer, then its fiberglass filter paper gets corroded. To ensure that there is better safety, then the high efficiency filter would need replacing more regularly.
It is common to find that pharmaceutical companies would replace their high efficiency filters after a rainy season to prevent the possible cases of mold contamination.
As for the biological labs, they would also change the high efficiency filters to ensure better reliability before starting on a new project.
What Are the Common Testing Methods Used for High-Efficiency Filters?
Testing of your high efficiency clean room air filter more often is recommended. This is because it will help you to know if the filter is working correctly as you want or not. Below are some of the common methods used for testing high efficiency filters.
✧ Sodium Flame Method
The use of sodium salt for testing the high efficiency filters has been around for years now. It is still one of the most reliable ways of testing the clean room air filter.
The method works by testing the dust source with sodium chloride salt fog. The results are based on the brightness quantity of the hydrogen flame when buying the salt fog.
This method will also be used in combination with a flame photometer to correctly detect the brightness of the flame.
It is worth noting that this method will only detect low sensitivity and cannot be used for the ultra-high efficiency filters.
✧ Dop Method.
DOP in full means monodisperse dioctyl phthalate droplets. This method was first introduced in the USA, but it is now popular in different countries around the world.
It works by measuring the degree of turbidity of the air containing the DOP introduced into the ducts. The testing team will also use a scattering photometer and compare the results to the relevant standards of the method.
✧ Mpps Method
Figure 14: Mpps Method Test Clean Room Air Filter
This method is common in Europe and the US to test the ultra-high efficiency clean room air filters. With its impressive outcomes, it is now becoming a mainstream method for testing the clean room air filters.
The method includes using a large flow laser particle counter and a condensation nucleus counter. These two will inspect the entire air outlet surface and give an outcome for the dust particles for each of the points.
It is from this data that the testing team would know if the clean room air filter is good or needs replacing.
A great clean room air filter will make your clean room to maintain its integrity for longer. As such, we are here to help you achieve that.
What Are the Fan Powered HEPA Filter?
