Horizontal Flow Wall Modules

Horizontal flow wall modules provide a Horizontal Air flow source, which is ideal to create many different types of enclosures or tunnel systems. The modules can be grouped side by side, forming entire areas of full HEPA coverage from floor to ceiling. The units can be used separately or in groups to form a wall for a cleanroom or tunnel.

How Horizontal Flow Wall Modules Work

Horizontal Flow wall Modules produce clean, particle-free air required of a cleanroom environment. In horizontal flow wall modules, air is drawn in at the top of the module via a high capacity pleated pre-filter and pressurised. It is then released through high efficiency particulate absorber (HEPA) filters in a horizontal manner.

These wall modules recirculate air within a given space, filtering that same air over and over again, thus increasing efficiency with every air exchange. The large filter surface area allows a minimum of 2000 CFM (cubic feet per minute) to recirculate continuously without a vigorous air current.

Unlike vertical laminar flow units which release air in a vertical manner and can impact surfaces by drying out cavities, the slow moving air released by horizontal laminar flow does not disturb sensitive equipment. The process is also virtually undetected.

Wall module blowers with pre-filtered intake grilles may be top or back-mounted. In most cases, the top-mounted blower (when units are placed against a wall or floor space) is the best alternative. However, should ceiling to floor HEPA coverage be required – and ease of maintenance important – the rear mounted blower is most ideal.

Horizontal flow wall modules are available in eight standard sizes.

Features of Horizontal Flow Wall Modules

Horizontal Flow Wall Modules provide clean horizontal laminar airflow. They can recirculate up to 3200 CFM of air; are manufactured completely from materials which will ensure no particulate generation; and suitable to create horizontal clean air tunnels. There are two styles to meet a variety of applications; namely, CAP132 and CAP133 units.

CAP132 units can be placed against walls, because filter changes and maintenance are accomplished from the front. The ability to change the filter and perform maintenance from the front allows placement of model CAP132 against a wall without the need for a rear walkway, thereby increasing usable space in the clean work area.

The CAP133 HEPA filters are serviced from the front, but other maintenance (blowers, motors and pre-filters) is carried out from the rear of the unit.

Some of the features horizontal flow wall modules include:

  • They are constructed using only metal and no particle board. The use of non-shed materials ensures the number of particles that enter the facility remains low by eliminating dust generated via the use of non-metallic materials.
  • Horizontal flow wall modules have protective grille for the HEPA filter.
  • The HEPA filter is 99.99% effective on particles 0.3 micron and larger, as well as being DOP tested and leak probed.
  • They have a quiet, energy-efficient belt drive blower, which utilises a belt drive motor with a variable pitch pulley on the motor for adjusting its speed.
  • They are highly resistant to abrasion, corrosion, stains and chemicals.
  • Horizontal Laminar Flow Modules are designed to be freestanding or can be configured to be mounted on to a wall for more space-saving applications.
