Lighthouse Apex Particle Counters compatibility with Vaporized Hydrogen Peroxide (VHP)
What is Vaporized Hydrogen Peroxide (VHP)? VHP is a vapor from hydrogen peroxide H2O2. VHP is produced from a solution of liquid H2O2 and water, by generators specifically designed for the purpose. These generators initially dehumidify the ambient air, then produce VHP by passing aqueous hydrogen peroxide over a vaporizer, and circulate the vapor at a programmed concentration in the air. VHP systems can be used to decontaminate facilities, isolators or small enclosures and...READ MORE

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...READ MORE
Keeping Space Clean: Cleanrooms And Space
This week, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA) rover Perseverance, a part of the Mars 2020 mission, landed on Mars. While the world was abuzz with this incredible step for mankind, cleanroom technicians were also cheering loudly. Because there’s a tight link between cleanrooms and space as we take every precaution possible to keep space clean. We talk a lot about cleanrooms being used in technology, pharmaceuticals, medical equipment...READ MORE
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...READ MORE

What Is Particle Counter Calibration? And why is it important?
What Is Particle Counter Calibration? And why is it important? Particle counters are a fundamental part of any properly maintained cleanroom. They are intricate tools used to count the number of particles in a cleanroom and measure their size. Regular particle counter calibration is an essential part of cleanroom maintenance, so they can stay functioning at their peak productivity. So what exactly does particle counter calibration involve? What...READ MORE

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...READ MORE
What Is A Cleanroom? And How Using A Cleanroom Can Benefit You
If you’re working for a company already using a cleanroom, you’re well aware of the benefits of a cleanroom and how important they are. But if you’re wondering how you can improve your production, then a cleanroom might be the answer. Either way, a cleanroom is not a simple beast. It is a multi-layered room that needs to be constantly monitored and maintained. Having a basic understanding of the fundamentals of what a cleanroom is will change the way you...READ MORE
