Clean Room Air Showers

Mycron Air Tech presents its Air showers are made of MS/GI powder coated and stainless steel 304 / 316 grades with international quality standard components. Air showers are specialized enclosed antechambers which are incorporated as entryways of clean rooms and other controlled environments to reduce particle contamination.

Air showers utilize high-pressure, HEPA filtered air to remove dust, fibrous lint and other contaminants from personnel or object surfaces. The forceful “cleansing” of surfaces prior to entering clean environments reduces the number of airborne particulates introduced.

Air showers are generally constructed from clean room compatible steel or plastic materials and feature electronically powered blowers, filters and high-pressure jet nozzles. The latter being incorporated into the walls and ceiling of the chamber.

Air at velocities of 3,000 to 7,000 feet-per-minute (FPM), continuously streams from the jet nozzles for 20-40 seconds effectively removing loose particulate matter. Personnel inside the enclosure will lift their arms and turn their bodies for uniform exposure to the air streams.

A procedure usually specified in protocol. Air currents from the jets create shearing and flapping forces which lift and remove contaminants from both flat surfaces and the creases of garments. HEPA filtration within the air shower is capable of removing 99.97% of particles greater than 0.3µm diameter.
