Weighing room is clean room equipment designed for weighing solid objects with dust, such as raw materials and activated carbon. The working area of the weighing room is under negative pressure relative to the background area. The vertical unidirectional airflow in the working area not only ensures that the dust of the weighing object goes down with the airflow but does not diffuse into the background area, which can prevent cross-contamination and protect the clean environment and operators health.
Zonsteel weighing room frame SS304, with PVC curtain or without, depends on the room depth, we advise depth less than 800mm to add it.

How Can You Clean a Weighing Room?
Figure 7: The inner side of a weighing room
Having a clean weighing room goes a long way to ensure that you always have the best conditions to handle your cleanroom raw materials.
So, how often should you clean the weighing room? If you are new to using a weighing room, Zonsteel recommends that you clean it each time you change a product. It can also be cleaned after every sampling of the product. This ensures you always have a clean weighing room at your disposal.
Below, Zonsteel give you some of the tips to consider when cleaning your weighing room to ensure it lives up to the quality standards.
✧ Start by removing the weighing equipment that was used in the sampling of the previous products. This will include scoops, spatulas, and more. They all need to be removed from the weighing area so that you have an easier time doing a deep clean of the weighing room.
✧ You will also have to remove any powder from the floor and the pre filter frame. This part will require the use of a vacuum to suck out all the powder and dust from the floor.
✧ Use a clean dry lint-free cloth soaked in purified water to clean the surfaces. It is easy to see why removing much of the dust with a vacuum will prevent the formation of muddy trails on the surface when using a wet cloth.
✧ Once the weighing area is cleaned with the water, rinse it using 70% IPA solution. This is a common disinfectant solution used in pharmaceuticals. It ensures most of the microorganisms are killed and you now have a clean weighing area for the next product.
✧ Make sure that you dispose the cleaning cloths and other materials as recommended by professionals. The last thing you want is for the contaminants to be touched by other people. Also, consider cleaning the waste bin better more often using dry lint-free cloth.
You might want to have a quality control person recording each of the cleaning activities in the weighing room. This ensures that you never have to worry so much about what needs to be done to keep the weighing room clean. Also, this allows for creating a proper schedule for regular thorough cleaning of the weighing room.
What Maintenance Tips about a Weighing Room Does the Operator Need to Know?
Figure 8: A closeup look of a weighing room control panel
When you take your time to give your weighing room the best maintenance, then you will end up with one that lasts a lot longer.
If you have not used a weighing room before, our maintenance tips below should give you an idea of how to proceed.
For the quarterly maintenance, you need to check out a few things to make sure the weighing room is working all great. Here are some of the thing you might have to do.
✧ Check to ensure that the motor of the blower is working great. This is important if you hope to end up with the best air velocity whenever you need it.
It is still a nice time to re-grease the motor bearings. This is to keep the motors working silently with enough lubrication. Having too much friction causes noise and also wear of the blower faster.
✧ Check all the connections to the terminal and tighten them where necessary. This is to ensure you get the best operation out of the weighing room. Loose connections are not the best when operating something on electricity.
✧ You will have to clean the whole unit on its exterior to keep it clean. Most of the time users clean the interior and forget the exterior. Cleaning the exterior should leave it looking good.
✧ Some of the others things you will have to clean include cover grills, air shield, cubicles, tube lights, and more.
✧ It is also a nice time to check the conditions of your filters just to make sure they are still reliable and efficient.
Half Yearly Maintenance
Most of the maintenance is done quarterly, but there are some things you can still do for the half yearly maintenance.
✧ You need to check for damages to the motor impeller. Replace any of the motors that might be worn out. Do not worry that this is something you will do more often. Most motors will work for years before replacing them.
✧ Check the filters to ensure they are still working great. You might have to do several tests to determine their efficiency before deciding if they need changing.
The yearly maintenance does not involve much, but it is still important. Here is what you will mostly be doing under this maintenance schedule.
✧ Check the overall performance of the HEPA filters. This majorly involves checking the velocity of discharge. It needs to be within the limit set for the weighing room. All that information will be found in the specific product catalogue.
✧ You still have to consider the velocity at suction for the pre filters. This also needs to be within the recommended limits.
✧ The illumination of your weighing area needs to be within the standard range depending on the type of weighing room that you have for use. The illumination needs to be right so that you can see better the cleanliness of the product before it goes into the clean room.
✧ It is also at this stage you carry out DOP, velocity tests, and particle count on the HEPA filters to ensure they are working as expected.
