5 Fundamentals Of Particle Counters

Particle counters do just that: they count particles. They are used in cleanrooms to count and size the particles in the air so the cleanroom can stay in proper working function and meet crucial certification criteria. The fundamentals of particle counters are relatively simple. You need to know how and why they work. If you have a basic grasp of these fundamentals, you'll be on your way to better understanding particle...

8 Industries That Need A Cleanroom

Who uses a cleanroom? Cleanrooms designed to keep air constantly circulating, using air filters and positive pressure to keep critical processes clean from particles and contaminants. So they are important in industries where external contaminants can ruin products, affect product  quality, or harm people. Cleanrooms are the backbone of some critical industries and our lives would look very different without them. Could you imagine buying a phone that broke...

How Does A Cleanroom Work?

Cleanrooms are uniquely designed to keep a workspace clean from particles and contaminants, but how does it do that? There a number of physical components that keep a cleanroom working - and we’ll cover those - but cleanrooms also use physics to keep particles away from your workspace. Two words: positive pressure. So how does that work? First, let’s cover how a cleanroom is physically built and structured to understand how physics plays a role. The...
