Top 10 Tips When Considering a Cleanroom

Modular cleanrooms are vitally important when it comes to inventing or manufacturing a product, because the manufacturing process requires a clean environment. But what exactly do you need to take into consideration when deciding on a modular cleanroom? During this guide, we provide the following tips when you are looking for a clean room trailer for your product or business:

 

  1. Do I need to spend my budget on a cleanroom? The real question is can you afford not to have a cleanroom? Particle contamination is a huge issue and can actually cause product failure that leads to product recalls. Some of these failures can even be life threatening to your customers. Modular cleanrooms are a must, so consider adjusting your budget so that you have enough money to spend on a cleanroom.
  2. Traditional cleanrooms versus modular cleanrooms. Traditional cleanrooms are containment rooms where the air is filtered and recirculated, while modular cleanrooms work on positive airflow and draw air through a filtration system. Modular cleanrooms are best for processes that require a clean environment. Modular cleanrooms are also typically more flexible and less expensive than traditional cleanrooms, especially smaller modular cleanrooms or cleanrooms that are not permanent.
  3. Modular cleanrooms are bespoke by nature. Modular cleanrooms consider both the environment where the cleanroom is located and the processes it will contain.
  4. Do I need to consider building regulations? Modular cleanrooms do not require building regulations, since they are a room within a room rather than a part of the building. This has a number of benefits, including cost savings, quicker lead times and less red tape.
  5. A cleanroom has various classifications of cleanliness. The nature of the process you are performing should tell you which classification of cleanliness is needed. For example, medical products that are implanted in the human body, as well as some food packing processes, are required to be created in a modular cleanroom with a higher classification of cleanliness than non-critical processes.
  6. Sector considerations. Modular cleanrooms are used in many sectors, including energy, electronics, laboratory, manufacturing, pharmaceutical and healthcare and medical device manufacturing, so it is important to take these sectors into consideration.
  7. Quick to production. While traditional cleanrooms require multiple people within a business to plan the construction, modular cleanrooms are much less complicated and require fewer people for the planning process, which means that they are much quicker to production.
  8. Validation. After a modular cleanroom is installed, it needs to be validated to make sure that it is performing to customer specifications.
  9. Cleanrooms should be kept clean. It is super important to keep cleanrooms clean even when they are not being used for manufacturing products. Consider double bagging products and wearing specific clothing to help reduce the introduction of contamination.
  10. Good cleanroom protocol. Many cleanroom companies provide training days for customers, where they demonstrate best practices within a cleanroom. Modular cleanrooms help ensure that your standards are met, that particle contamination is reduced and that your customers are happy.
