Cleanroom Industrial Processes

Industrial processes are procedures which involve physical, chemical, mechanical or electrical steps that lead to the manufacture of items, usually on a large scale. Industrial processes contribute to the conversion of a costly and rare material into an affordable commodity.

Types of Industrial Processes

General Processes

These are mostly used by large industries and include the liquefaction of gases, a scrubber and freeze drying. Liquefaction of gases is the physical conversion of gas to liquid. It is used for industrial, scientific and commercial purposes. Liquefaction serves to analyse the fundamental elements of gas molecules for the storage of gases. Also known as cryodesiccation or lyophilization, freeze-drying is a low-temperature dehydration process that freezes the product, lowers pressure and removes the ice by the process of sublimation.

The low temperature used in processing leads to a high-quality product. The quality of the rehydrated product is excellent, while the original shape is maintained. The scrubber is used to remove pollutants from the exhaust gas and is a piece of equipment that absorbs CO2. The scrubber treats exhaust gases from exhaled air in industrial plants. They are also used in cleanrooms and controlled environments.

Modular Cleanroom Benefits

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

Chemical Processes

This is the process of changing one or more chemicals or compounds – either by itself or via the introduction of outside forces (chemical reaction). In manufacturing, it is a method used on an industrial scale to change the composition of materials or chemicals by utilising technology similar to that used in the chemical industry. Popular chemical methods include disinfection, smelting and pyro-processing.

Cleanroom Design, Build & Validation

  • Budgeting and planning
  • Engineering, design & layout
  • Airflow and filtration design
  • Construction and Installation
  • Full Certification of our product
  • Industry-specific equipment installation
  • Validation

Physical Processes

These are methods for reshaping a material by folding, cutting, polishing or joining. Examples include crystallisation, magnetism, mixtures, solutions, alloys, heating and cooling.

Industrial and Manufacturing Processes that Require Cleanrooms

Military applications

Governments in developed countries are at the forefront of military technology. From developing efficient ways to generate energy, finding new tools to protect soldiers, executing research and testing, they use cleanrooms because they need a contaminant-free environment.


Often, people who think of aerospace conjure an image of aircraft. However, it’s only the tiny parts that make up an aeroplane; these include spaceflight lasers, which require cleanrooms to ensure absolute accuracy during production.

Personnel in this particular industry deal with UV-sensitive processes that require a cleanroom environment. Total Clean Air delivers high-quality cleanrooms with lighting, UV filter and wall finishes. Processes conducted within our aerospace cleanrooms include electronics assembly and testing, satellite subassembly, optics, as well as the cleaning and packing of components.


Modern OEMs can’t risk particulate contamination where sensitive advanced electronics are concerned. For instance, a mere speck of dust on a microchip could ruin an entire batch of products and cost the company millions of pounds in lost revenue.

Electronics manufacturers rely on cleanrooms to ensure the cleanliness of their manufacturing space and processes. Total Clean Air provides cleanroom solutions and expertly trained technicians. We ensure your cleanroom meets industry requirements, satisfies your specifications, and controls the generation and introduction of particulate contamination.


Quality comes first when developing products in the pharmaceutical industry. Cleanrooms are crucial for creating and packaging drugs and vaccines. The controlled environment of a cleanroom ensures a contamination-free manufacturing process.

To prevent cross-contamination, Total Clean Air provides ISO Class 5 cleanrooms, suitable for pharmaceutical processes such as:

  • Sleeve fabrication for medical packaging
  • Blister packaging
  • Powder weighing and handling
  • Capsule/tablet manufacturing
  • Covering machines/production lines
  • Sampling of product

Types of Cleanrooms for Industrial Processes

Softwall Cleanrooms

Softwall cleanrooms offer an economical solution and are ideal for specialised and compartmentalized operations within modular cleanrooms. The partitions and walls are made of flexible PVC strips. The positive air flow inside the cleanroom ensures materials and processes are protected from contamination.

Total Clean Air provides cost-effective softwall cleanrooms. We have custom and standard solutions available for a range of industries and applications. Features include:

  • Transfer hatches
  • Transfer restriction
  • Change areas
  • Temperature regulation
  • LED lighting
  • Automatic control or simple operation

Hardwall Cleanrooms

Hardwall cleanrooms provide a solid structure that’s both impact-resistant and durable. It features a robust stainless steel frame and tinted/blinded panels.

Modular hardwall cleanrooms from Total Clean Air employ a panelised wall structure that supports the ceiling and roof grid. Self-powered filter units provide filtered air, which exits the cleanroom via floor level exhaust vents.

Our hardwall cleanrooms are less disruptive, flexible, easy to relocate, quick to install and less expensive than a fixed wall cleanroom. Materials and finishes used in construction include vinyl, fibreglass, reinforced plastic and aluminium clad wall finish.
