E-cigarette Cleanrooms

A E-cigarettes cleanroom is an enclosed zone where airborne particulates and pollutants are maintained at specific levels. The cleanroom is used to filter polluted air as per the requirements of certain industries such as pharmaceuticals, E-liquids, healthcare facilities, as well as science and technology.

Such contaminants as Chemical vapours, aerosol particles, fibrous materials and microorganisms are but a small example of which contaminants can be harmful to production and research. Our E-cigarettes Modular Cleanrooms are developed to meet the required standard of the international organisation for standardisation (ISO) 14644-1: 2015.

E-cigarettes Modular Cleanrooms, built to the ISO 14644-1:2015 specification, are classed from 1 to 9. Cleanrooms can vary between different classifications when the size and level of air particulates change. Cleanrooms that fall in Class 1 (which is the greatest in the classification) are tested for the smallest air pollutant size and lowest frequency while Class 9 cleanrooms are tested for a larger air particulate size range and higher frequency.

To test E-cigarettes Modular Cleanrooms and classify them, particle counters are used to measure the Particles Per Cubic Metre (PPCMM) of the environment by size and quantity. An ISO class 9 cleanroom has a PPCM commensurate with atmospheric air (identical to the environment of a suburb) but with larger particles >5 microns filtered out.

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. Here is an example of this kind of testing requirement.

A Class 7 Cleanroom will be tested for a particulate size of > 0.5 microns with a maximum particle count of 352,000. If this test exceeds the maximum number, the E-cigarettes Cleanroom will need to be modified and retested to meet the classification.

Contamination-frеe production

E-cigarettes Modular Cleanrooms maintain strictly low levels of air particulates through the use of ULPA/HEPA filters. 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 positive pressure is responsible for sustaining the state of clean air that prevents the backflow of polluted air into the Cleanroom via exhaust openings.

The type of E-cigarettes Cleanroom aforementioned assures that only air that has passed through the filtration unit enters the internal area allowing for contamination-free production.

Modular Cleanroom Benefits

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

The E-cigarettes Cleanroom solution will reduce the likelihood of product contamination and is the first stage of producing a clean air production area. Adopting preventative measures that will prevent personnel from introducing particulates into the cleanroom is the next step to take. This introduction of contaminants can be prevented by the proper use of Cleanroom PPE such as gowning, hair nets and overshoes. This move will see to it that certain numbers of contaminants like dust and fibres do not enter the cleanroom and disrupt research/production. Operators of E-cigarettes Cleanrooms must be adequately trained on contamination reduction processes to keep the Cleanroom safe from contamination.

Industry criteria

The use of Cleanrooms is critical for industries that depend on contamination-free production.

The need for a controlled air space makes the Cleanroom all the more essential as it mitigates the reduction of particulates through air filtration. The use of Cleanrooms are employed in industries such as science and technology, semiconductors, production, electronics, medical devices, research, food production and more.

At TCA, our main goal is to see to it that you’re provided with the right solution for your needs. We can provide guidance concerning ideal E-cigarettes Cleanroom standards for you if you’re unsure about anything.

Our E-cigarettes Modular Cleanrooms are built to comply to the international organisation for standardisation (ISO) 14644-1: 2015. E-cigarettes Modular Cleanrooms that satisfy the ISO 14644-1:2015 standard vary from ISO 1-9. These Cleanrooms will be placed in the class where it satisfies the required number and size of particulates present for any class. 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.

The use of particle counters is adopted to test E-cigarettes Modular Cleanrooms for categorisation, where the enclosed space is measured by Particles Per Cubic Metre (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

A containment solution is suitable for you if you have a hazardous substance that needs to be removed via a filter before reaching the outside air. This can be set up in a Cleanroom that both protects products by introducing filtered air and contains hazardous materials by extracting them through a HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air), ULPA (Ultra-Low Particulate Air) or carbon filter. TCA provides the best in containment solutions that can be streamlined to the needs of any industry and see to it that your cleanroom complies to the standards and requirements of specific 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 implies that every customer may require a different containment solution for their needs. We will work with you to find the solution most practical to 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.

With TCA you have the option of doing almost anything with a cleanroom design. This means that your Cleanroom can be many shapes and sizes fitting the most obscure of rooms and can have a range of finishes. We have yet to find a design that we could not accommodate.

Our customisable options mean that all components of the Cleanroom such as doors, windows, lighting, ceilings and filtrations can be altered to better suit your needs. You also have the option of installing furniture, air showers, pass through chambers, fire suppression, air-conditioning and much, much more. We pride ourselves in being able to meet design requests however unique in shape and size they may be.
