Air showers are just one factor in ensuring good cleanroom performance. Proper worker training, documented procedures, and a well-maintained system will increase production yields and reduce product defects and costs.
Whether ensuring high semiconductor yields or a flawless paint finish, a wide variety of industries use air showers as part of their cleanroom operation. Semiconductor, medical device, bio-tech, microelectronic, optics, pharmaceutical, aerospace, nanotechnology, and automotive industries require contaminant-free environments and commonly use air showers as part of their operation.
While air showers are typically used for cleaning gowned personnel before entering a clean environment, they can also be used to remove particulates as workers leave hazardous work areas before going out into the general public, or preventing cross contamination when moving from one work space into another.
