Beer Cleanrooms

Beer Cleanrooms are clean air environments where a specific size of air particulates is prevented from entering. Cleanrooms are typically used to reduce the pollution from unfiltered air in the manufacturing of products like pharmaceuticals, microprocessors, E-liquids, as well as food products.

Example of such pollutants that can be harmful to research and production include aerosol particles, chemical vapours, microorganisms, and fibrous materials and so many others. Our Beer Modular Cleanrooms are built to comply with the international organisation for standardisation (ISO) 14644-1: 2015.

Beer Modular Cleanrooms that fall within the standard of the ISO 14644-1:2015 are differentiated by classifications of class 1-9. Each Cleanroom is classed according to the maintained level and size of air particulates in the environment. The highest classification of Beer Modular Cleanrooms of this standard (Class 1) will be valued based on the smallest range of pollutants entering the clean air environment and lowest frequency whereas the Class 9 category of Cleanrooms, which represents the minimum classification, will be valued based on having a higher frequency and much larger contaminants entering the cleanroom.

Particle counters are used to gauge the Particles Per Cubic Metre (PPCMM) of Beer Modular Cleanrooms to determine their classification. The ISO Class 9 Modular Cleanroom’s PPCM has a semblance with regular atmospheric air but filtration of much larger air contaminants >5 microns is accounted for.

Smaller air particulates of sizes >0.2 and >0.1 microns are focused on with Class 1 Cleanrooms, which results in a much cleaner environment. The following is an example of the testing method.

A Modular Cleanroom that falls in Class 7 will be tested for the presence of an air particulate size of >0.5 microns where the highest particle count should be capped at 352,000. Modifications will have to be put in place if the Beer Cleanroom does not meet the requirements for this classification.

Production in a contamination-free environment

Beer Modular Cleanrooms achieve the clean air quality by use of air filtration HEPA/ULPA technology. These technologies have undergone research evaluations to prove that they effectively reduce the quantity and size of air contaminants entering a cleanroom. Non-filtered air passes through Filter Fan Units (FFUs) creating a positive pressure area inside the cleanroom. The state of clean air is maintained by the positive pressure, which prevents the reflux of the non-filtered air into the environment through pipe openings.

With the above-mentioned cleanroom, contamination-free manufacturing is allowed to take place as air that hasn’t gone through the filtration unit will be prevented from entering the clean air space.

Modular Cleanroom Benefits

  • Modular Construction
  • Quick Assembly Time
  • Versatility
  • Reconfiguration
  • Airflow Control
  • Inexpensive Modifications

Deploying a Beer cleanroom solution is the first stage of producing a clean environment for production and it substantially lessens the risk of product contamination. Adopting preventative measures that will prevent personnel from introducing particulates into the cleanroom is the next step to take. This can be achieved through the proper use of PPE for cleanrooms such as hair nets, overshoes, and gowning. This will reduce fibres and potential contaminants from entering the Beer Cleanroom and interfering with Production/ research. Those operating in the Beer Cleanroom must undergo contamination reduction trainings to avoid the introduction of pollutants in the clean air space.

Industry Prerequisites

The use of a Cleanroom is crucial for any industry that requires their processes to have a reduced particulate occurrence to avoid the microbial spoiling and/or contamination of goods.

The use of air filtration in keeping out a certain number of air particulates makes the Cleanroom vital for maintaining a clean air space. Food production, semiconductor production, science and technology, medical devices manufacturing, as well as electronics production are some of the industries where Cleanrooms are used.

Rest assured that, with TCA, you’re only spending for exactly what you need. We can also point you in the right direction if you’re unsure about your Beer Cleanroom requirements.

Our Beer Modular Cleanrooms are built to comply to the international organisation for standardisation (ISO) 14644-1: 2015. Cleanrooms of this standard fall in different classes – from ISO 1-9. The classification of a Cleanroom changes dependent on the size and prevalence of the air particulate in the cleanroom. Cleanrooms that fall into ISO 1, which is the highest classification, will be tested for the lowest quantity and sizes of air particulates whereas those that fall into ISO 9, being the least, will be evaluated for the highest quantity and sizes of pollutants entering the clean air area.

To the determine the class of a Modular Cleanroom, particle counters are used to measure the size and quantity of particulates in Particles Per Cubic Metres (PPCM). Every particle counter determines the size and quantity of air particulates. Evaluations for ISO class 9 Cleanrooms are aimed at the removal of larger air contaminants (>5 microns) as they have the PPCM of suburban air whereas the elimination of smaller air pollutants (>0.1 and >0.2 microns) are accounted for in ISO 1 cleanrooms.

Containment solutions

Containment solutions are ideal in cases where you have hazardous materials that need to be prevented from making it to the outside air from the cleanroom. These systems can be installed in a modular cleanroom, giving it the capability to shut in harmful substances coming from entering the external environment with filters like the HEPA, ULPA, or Carbon filters while keeping the internal area environment protected from unfiltered air particulates. At TCA, we have the expertise to deliver containment solutions that are ideal to your particular needs that can trap in harmful chemicals and prevent them from making it to the outside air, which will see you work within the requirements of your regulators.

Containment solutions can differ due to the fact that hazardous materials are different from each other based on quantity and use of each cleanroom. This entails the need for custom made containment systems for every customer. We’ll consult with you to make sure we deliver the required system for your use.

Airflow and Filtration

Our Cleanrooms are designed to be compliant to the specified ISO 14644-1:2015 grading. With this in mind, we take into consideration the level of air filtration required and the end function of the cleanroom. The level of air filtration required is determined by the air changes per hour (ACH), this determines how many Filter Fan Units are to be used in the cleanroom. What we also determine by the strategic positioning of the FFUs and exhausts is the flow of air around the cleanroom. This can mean the difference between a uni-directional (laminar flow) and a non-unidirectional (turbulent flow) airflow around a cleanroom, potentially leading to a contaminated product. With this in mind, we can greatly increase the number of ACH and control the air flow within the cleanroom.

Filtration of air is controlled by our ultra-quiet, high-efficiency filtration modules. These filtration modules automatically compensate for a build-up of dust and other materials that occur over time within a HEPA/ULPA filter increasing the fan speed to reach the set flow rate. This increases the life of the filter, reducing cost overtime for the end user.

Cleanrooms Customised to Your Needs

At TCA there is no such thing as a standard modular cleanroom. Each Cleanroom we design is made to fit your unique work conditions and is designed with your needs in mind. We make each modular Cleanroom to order and make you part of the design process.
