Research Institutes Cleanrooms

Total Clean Air is a pioneer in the field of Cleanroom technology. In the last decade, we’ve grown to become one of the leading brands developing high-quality modular Cleanrooms for research institutes across the UK.

Manufacturing processes in certain industries require an environment free of contaminants and particles. For instance, Cleanrooms in research institutes measure atmospheric contaminants to provide a clean environment, where airborne particles are kept to a minimum. Also, a wide range of industries such as bioengineering, electronic technology, nanotech and aerospace rely on a Cleanroom for testing and manufacturing.

Our portable Cleanrooms for research institutes ensure your facility eliminates pollutant contamination to maintain ISO and EU industry standards.

For industries that require research Cleanrooms, Total Clean Air is the only company to work with. We’ve created research Cleanrooms known for quality and reliability. We use the latest Cleanroom technology to create your bespoke Cleanroom.

Research Institute Cleanroom Cleaning Procedure

Thorough cleaning procedures of a research institute Cleanroom is an essential task that enhances the overall consistency, cleanliness and ensures contamination control within the research Cleanroom.

Creating a regular maintenance schedule ensures the Cleanroom complies with any classification. Cleanroom cleaning requires the use of specialised products. An important step towards achieving microbial control is the use of defined cleaning methods alongside the application of disinfectants and detergents.

The cleaning agents used in research institute Cleanrooms must be high quality and effective at killing micro-organisms. We advise clients to use vacuums that include HEPA filters and can be operated around electrical equipment. We have vacuums that capture over 99% of debris and dust, while mops and adhesive rolls with low contamination characteristics are suitable for cleaning Cleanroom floors and walls.

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

To ensure clean fresh air before cleaning, positive-pressure air should run at full flow for up to 30 minutes. All surfaces, ledges and corners are vacuumed and damp-wiped. Personnel wipe the surface themselves; for every new stroke, they use a clean surface of the sponge or wipe to prevent re-deposition of contaminants.

The type of disinfectant and detergent used depends on the Cleanroom’s usage and level of activity performed in it. Total Clean Air provides a range of disinfectants for different types of Cleanroom activity, each targeting and killing microbial cells in various ways.

Cleanroom swabs and low particulate wipes keep small surfaces clean. We use particle-grabbing adhesive to coat multi-layer mats and prevent bacterial growth. To extract particulates from carts and shoes, adhesive mats are placed at the relevant entrances.

Equipment in the Cleanroom requires special procedures to contain airborne molecular contamination and prevent the spread of grease. Specialised Cleanroom equipment such as ionising grids and HEPA filters must be maintained every three and six months respectively.

Benefits of a modular Cleanroom for research institutes

Modular Cleanrooms have become the preferred option for businesses who need a fast and reliable Cleanroom design that stays within budget and reduces downtime. Instead of cement-mortar construction, we use different core materials, such as steel sandwich insulated panels. The absence of civil walls ensures they don’t shed particles, which contributes less to airborne particulate matter. Furthermore, they can be easily cleaned every day.

Using modular Cleanrooms in your research institutes saves the time taken to design, engineer and construct a Cleanroom. This translates into less money spent on taxes.

It takes several months to construct a fixed wall Cleanroom because of the amount of engineering, planning, and design involved. An innovative modular Cleanroom can be constructed and installed within a week.

It’s also a great way to show your customers that you’re an eco-friendly company. Modular Cleanrooms support green construction techniques by using recycled materials in construction. Subsequently, you’ll enhance your brand reputation, reduce your carbon footprint and protect the earth’s natural resources.

Materials are pre-cut and completely finished without the need for painting, sanding or taping. They can be taken down, expanded, reconfigured or relocated, as they are not an integral part of a larger structure. A modular Cleanroom will perform the same functions as a fixed wall Cleanroom. Whatever your application, our team will design it to meet the needs of your research institute. We also ensure that your Cleanroom adheres to ISO and EU standards you require.

Types of industries that need a research Cleanroom

Aerospace

Companies in the aerospace industry rely on Cleanrooms to conduct research and perform experiments. Aerospace tools such as lasers require the use of a controlled environment, where pollutants or contaminants could compromise manufacturing tools or the process itself. They rely on ISO class clean air environments to perform experiments.

Military

The military relies on Cleanrooms for experiments, technology and projects. Most military equipment is made in Cleanroom environments. The military uses Cleanroom laboratories to conduct research and experiment on new technological systems that enhance the current device. Total Clean Air constructs research Cleanrooms that fits the specific requirements of the military.

University community

University researchers require a Cleanroom to conduct research, whereby contaminants and pollutants might damage the process. For instance, just a few particles in the laboratory could destroy the product or processes. A Cleanroom removes all variables that could affect such results and also helps researchers eliminate the risk of cross-contamination and variables that impede accurate results.

Nanotech

Research is a huge part of nanotechnology, which requires Cleanroom labs to manufacture semiconductors. Their use is multi-faceted and includes an application for fuel cells, the food industry and more.

Government agencies

Government agencies and private institutions that deliver government contracts require Cleanrooms for research purposes. Total Clean Air will design a Cleanroom that’s customised to fit your needs, whilst factoring in any future expansion plans.

Pharmaceuticals

Total Clean Air provides laboratory Cleanrooms for pharmaceutical companies that carry out critical research and experiments. Our modular Cleanrooms are ideal for pharmaceutical experiments, studies, research analysis, testing and conducting clinical trials.
