What Is a Clean Room?
Figure 1: Clean Room
A clean room can be defined as a space where the concentration of the airborne particles is classified and regulated.
So, a clean room will be designed in a way to minimize the introduction, retention, and generation of such particles in a space. Depending on the particle regulation in the clean room, the room gets a specific ISO standard.
We will look at the ISO clean room standards later in the guide for you to learn more about them.
What Are Clean Rooms Used for?
Figure 2: Clean Room Use
A cleanroom is a controlled environment where pollutants like dust, airborne microbes, and aerosol particles are filtered out in order to provide the cleanest area possible. Most cleanrooms are used for manufacturing products such as electronics, pharmaceutical products, and medical equipment.
How Does a Clean Room Work?
Figure 3: Positive-pressure Clean Room
Before you can buy a clean room from Zonsteel, you would want to know how it works. There are two major types of clean room working principles. They include positive pressure rooms and the negative pressure rooms.
About 90% of all the clean rooms are positive-pressure rooms. This means that they are designed to keep the contaminants from getting into the clean room.
In such clean rooms, the air is introduced at the ceiling level then it is passed through a HEPA filter run by a fan. This will remove as much particles as possible mostly of size smaller than 0.5 microns.
The air filtration process will create a pressurized room whereby the air pressure in the room becomes greater than what is outside the clean room. This is now what leads to positive pressure. At this point, the contaminants in the air and the air get pushed down towards the flow and then out through the vents in the lower parts of the clean room.
This process is repeated all the time so that at any time, you will have air and its contaminants flowing out of the clean room constantly. The best part is that the air exiting the room remains at a pressure that is enough to prevent any contaminants from getting into the clean room through the vents or when the doors are opened.
Now there is also the negative-pressure clean rooms. They are the opposite of the positive-pressure ones mentioned above as they are designed to keep any contaminants from leaving the clean room.
Such a clean room is mostly used in instances where infectious diseases and pathogens have to be contained. The same applies to bio contaminants, chemicals, flammables, and other related stuff from getting out.
For the case of negative-pressure room, the air is pulled out of the clean room using reversed HEPA filters. This results in having negative pressure in the clean room. The buildup of negative pressure in the clean room prevents the contaminants from getting out.
You should now have an idea of which clean room type would be ideal for you depending on the application that you want to handle.
Why Should You Choose Zonsteel Clean Rooms?

What Are the ISO Standards for Rating Cleanrooms?
Before ISO standards, the industry was regulated by the Federal Standard 209E for the clean rooms. Fast forward to 2001, that is when ISO standards were adopted for the whole world. Right now, it is the norm to have the clean rooms classified based on the ISO standards.
On overall, ISO standards have been a major boost to the clean room industry. Manufacturers can now make different types of clean rooms depending on the client needs. For each class, you can now get multiple types of clean rooms.
Below are the ISO standard classes with their equivalent Federal Standards equivalents. As much as the Federal Standards were canceled back in 2001, they are still widely referenced, so it is just good to know about them.
|Class||maximum particles/m3||FED STD 209E|
|>=0.1 µm||>=0.2 µm||>=0.3 µm||>=0.5 µm||>=1 µm||>=5 µm|
|ISO 3||1,000||237||102||35||8||Class 1|
|ISO 4||10,000||2,370||1,020||352||83||Class 10|
|ISO 5||100,000||23,700||10,200||3,520||832||29||Class 100|
|ISO 6||1,000,000||237,000||102,000||35,200||8,320||293||Class 1,000|
|ISO 7||352,000||83,200||2,930||Class 10,000|
|ISO 8||3,520,000||832,000||29,300||Class 100,000|
|ISO 9||35,200,000||8,320,000||293,000||Room Air|
It is recommended that you refer to ISO Standards when talking of clean rooms as they are internationally accepted. People in different countries might not be conversant with the Federal Standards.

What Are the Clean Room Equipment Available at Zonsteel?
If you are new to clean rooms, then it must be interesting to know more about the clean room equipment. You do not have to buy all the equipment at once, but only get the necessary ones first.
The most common clean room equipment that Zonsteel makes include the following;
✦ AHU unit
✦ Pass box
✦ HEPA box
An air shower is a general-purpose clean room equipment mostly set up between a clean room and the non-clean room area. It is then used as a passage for people to use before getting into the clean room. The air shower main aim to remove the dust that people or cargo carry before getting into the clean room.
The AHU unit has a fan and motors important for handling the several stages of air purification before getting into the clean room. The processes include air mixing, cooling, heating, filtration, noise dampening, and humidification.
Another notable equipment is the fan filter unit. This clean room equipment is the engine that drives the clean room system. It has a HEPA filter and a fan unit combined to filter the air before it gets into the clean room. The FFU will send the air at a constant speed to ensure the right circulation in the clean room. Any clean room is likely to have a fan filter unit setup.
As the name suggests, the HEPA box is an important equipment for handling the air in the clean room. Its additional function includes obtaining the right static pressure for the air that goes through the high efficiency filter. This type of equipment is common in hospitals, precision machinery, optics, and more.

Looking at all the clean room furniture from Zonsteel, we find that they are made of stainless steel material. This type of material is good for the clean room environment as it can live up to the clean room conditions. It does not corrode and can remain clean for longer.

How Much Will It Cost to Set Up a Clean Room from Zonsteel?
The question of cost comes up more often but we have to advise our clients that one clean room cannot cost as the same as another one. This is because there is a lot of customization, design, and manufacturing that go into the clean room. All of that varies from one unit to another.
To help you know the exact cost of your clean room, we would advise you to get in touch with our sales team to guide you further. Once we have your clean room specifications, then we will have all the information that we need to do a proper pricing of your clean room.
What Takes Up the Greatest Cost When Setting Up a Clean Room?
Figure 13: Clean Room AHU Unit
Other than the outer structure of the clean room, the greatest cost will go into the HVAC and HEPA systems. Depending on the type of clean room, we have to look at the air change per hour requirement. If you are in the market for a model with a higher air changes per hour figure, then you will have to spend more on the equipment that makes it possible.
The temperature and humidity can also have cost implications on your clean room. The idea is to keep the clean room within the right conditions all the time for it to maintain its clean room integrity. So, the cost of some components might be high while others might be low.
Does the ISO Classification Impact the Cost Of Building and Operating Clean Rooms?
Figure 14: Fan Filter Unit FFU Quantity
The ISO class level for a clean room determines how clean it should be. Of course, for it to be cleaner than the previous class, then it will cost more to include all the equipment to make this happen.
The way ISO class levels are arranged, a class would be 10 times cleaner than the class lower than it. So, if you move the clean room from class 7 to class 8, then it will need more air and other cleaning methods to make it better.
Opting for a higher class means that you invest more in air filtration and conditioning to achieve such status.
Other things that will determine the cost will include the overall square footage, humidity, the number of filters to do the job, and the energy use.
What Is the Best Way to Wipe Down Clean Room Surfaces?
As part of maintaining the clean room integrity, you will need to do proper wipe down to remove the dirt, dust, and grime from the surfaces. Here are some steps to follow when doing a surface wipe down of the clean room.
✦ Make sure to follow the laid-out site protocol for cleaning the clean room. This might include protocols on safety, contamination, and more. You need to wear clean room gloves to further protect yourself.
✦ Proceed to use the right clean room wipers to clean the surfaces. You can fold the wipers into quarter folds where necessary. This gives you more cleaning surfaces and still gives you a better contact with the surfaces you want to wipe.
✦ When wiping the surfaces, hold the folded edge to have a better grip and cover a wider area when wiping. Wipe in one direction to reduce spreading the dirt even further.
✦ Once you have wiped the whole surface, you will need to come back with clean wipers to finish off the surfaces.
✦ After completing the cleaning process, it is recommended that you dispose the wipers according the site protocols. Some of the wipers will have contaminants depending on what is done in the clean room, so a proper disposal is important.
This is just for the general wiping of the surfaces. You might also need to do more research about in-depth cleaning of the clean room. The additional cleaning of the clean room would need more supplies to ensure all the dirt is handled to leave you with a clean room in the right condition.
