Medical Device Assembly Room

Medical Device Assembly Cleanroom

Application: ISO Level 7

Size: 16’ x 16’ with 4’ x 8’ Gowning Area

Location: Irvine, California

Benefits

  • Minimal disruption
  • Permitting to meet local code
  • Easily relocated or expanded

Details and Scope of Work

Our repeat client came to us with a need for a cleanroom for assembling catheters. There requirement was to work in conjunction with an onsite general contractor and the property owner to ensure a local city codes were met and  minimal modifications to the existing building were needed.

As the customer was familiar with our 4” insulated cleanroom wall system from a prior project we discussed specific details further to meet their needs.

This cleanroom needed to utilize an existing HVAC system and its own zone control. The ceiling in the existing area was removed and a cleanroom grade t-bar was installed to maintain the same ceiling height in their lab area. The walls are supported by existing structural members and our U.L. classified raceways provided electrical power for the equipment in the cleanroom.

The cleanroom features custom height wall panels with interior FRP finish. A 24” x 24” wall mount pass through chamber located in the gown area allows sample materials to be passed from the ISO –7 clean area without disturbing the environment.

Thanks to the modular design and our expert installation crew, we were able to get all the cleanroom materials up to the 2nd floor of the facility with very little disruption to an active work area.

pre-fabricated modular cleanroom

Modular Cleanroom

Application:   ISO Level 7 (Class 10,000)

Size: 20’ x 20’ with 8’ x 10’ Gowning Area

Location: Temecula, California

Benefits

  • Minimal disruption to active facility
  • Isolate process from dirty warehouse
  • System easily upgraded
  • Walls provide thermal barrier

Details and Scope of Work

We were contacted by our client to help design a system for face shield manufacturing. Due to a high rejection rate from their current process where too many airborne particles were getting into the lens after they left the vacuum oven as they were moved to the curing area.

There were some challenges as the environment needed to maintain stringent temperatures while providing a comfortable work environment for the production staff within the environment.  Careful evaluation of the processing equipment was taken into consideration to ensure proper mechanical elements were provided. read more

Biopharmaceutical Modular Cleanroom

Biopharmaceutical Modular Cleanroom

Application: ISO Level 6

Size:  20’ x 40’ Re-Circulating Design

Benefits

  • Two separate air handling systems
  • Increased support by providing ISO 8 hallways

Details and Scope of Work

Our client came to us with a brand new building which required a ISO 6 cleanroom system in the core of the operation. We designed 2 each 20’ x 20’ environments with separate air handling systems to prevent cross-contamination with an ISO 7 Ante-Chamber between each enclosure. The system features smooth FRP wall finishes, hands free automated sliding doors and material inspection pass through chambers.

Upon site visit and further discussions with our client, we discovered we could further support the them by providing ISO 8 hallways around the Modular Cleanroom system (approx 4,000 sq.ft.) as well as drop in a cleanroom grade ceiling in the R & D areas, labs and shipping areas.

Volcano Probe Developed in Cleanroom Environment

Application:   ISO Level 7 (Class 10,000)

Location: Pasadena, California

Details and Scope of Work

Volcanoes have always been a fascination to the world. They have always held a unique element and have always been a mystery to scientist.

The Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California sent a probe down into a volcano. The issue that was faced is that exploring volcanoes can be risky. That is why the JPL robotics reach team developed a robot that could easily reach places where humans could not. In order to fully understand how volcanoes erupt, the team had to utilize cutting edge technologies along with a modular cleanroom in order to ensure that all parts were manufactured to the highest quality and precision.

The team was awarded a grant of $50,000 from the National Geographic’s Expedition Grant campaign for “great explorer”. The team lead, Parness, had mentioned that they could not have done it without the team they had in place.

This goes to show those who are looking to accomplish a technology endeavor have to have several things at their disposal, the first is a team that has the know-how and tenacity of not giving up. The second is the technology developed in a cleanroom environment which would allow the venture to move forward.

Insulated Wall Systems Reduce Particulate Contamination

Application: Modular Cleanroom

Benefits

  • HEPA and ULPA filtration
  • Customizable to size

Details and Scope of Work

A cleanroom or “controlled environment” is any given contained space where provisions are made to reduce airborne particulate contamination and control other environmental parameters such as temperature, humidity, and pressure. The key component is the mechanical system and filtration that traps particulates through HEPA or ULPA filters depending on cleanliness requirements.

Cleanrooms are necessary for many industries where small particles can adversely affect the manufacturing or quality of a product. While the enclosures vary in size and complexity they are typically found in industries such as pharmaceutical, semiconductor, biotech, medical device, and life sciences, as well as critical process manufacturing common in optics, aerospace, automotive, and military facilities… Read Full Article PDF Here

Modular Cleanrooms Offer “Green” Benefits

Application: Modular Cleanroom

Benefits

  • Fitting the space needed
  • Life cycle flexibility
  • Minimum waste and material

High levels of environmental control have long driven design, purchasing, and operational decisions for cleanrooms. Today, there are many sustainability issues when it comes to modular cleanrooms ranging from energy efficiency to materials use to long-term adaptability. These issues are also beginning to influence the conversation between those who operate controlled environments and those who design, build, and install them. Modular cleanrooms offer some distinct benefits for those trying to create more sustainable environments.

Controlled environments are inherently energy­ and resource­intensive. Achieving high levels Modular Cleanrooms Offer “Green” Benefits of cleanliness typically involves a large amount of infrastructure to ensure proper airflow (amount and direction), filtration, pressurization, temperature, and humidity. Air change rates (how many times per hour all the air in the space is replaced) are typically high (15 to 100 or more, compared with less than 10 for a science lab). Read the full article here!

Why Use a Modular CMM Enclosure for Aerospace?

Cleanrooms by United has the capability to quickly and effectively create a Modular CMM Enclosure to match your budget, space and time frames. We take pride in that having a CMM Enclosure allows our clients to have the dynamic flexibility to make changes and moves while recapturing nearly 100% of the initial material investment. If you were to do a traditional CMM Enclosure, you would be taking more time & money to make the enclosure. Additionally, a traditional construction of a CMM Enclosure would not allow for any recovery of costly building materials.
