How Do Cleanroom Air Showers Work?

How do Clean Room Air Shower works?

Prior entering the Cleanroom Air Shower, personnel will gown up to encapsulate any particles they might have on their clothes or body. Depending on the dimensions of the cleanroom air shower, anywhere from 1 to 3 persons can open the door and enter. After entering, the cleanroom air shower blows HEPA filtered air on them for 20-40 seconds to remove any particles. Once the cycle is over, the personnel exit thru the second door into the cleanroom. The Doors of the cleanroom air shower are generally interlocked so only one door can be open at a time to prevent particles from entering the cleanroom from the exterior.
