Air Shower Clean Room Design

Air showers are self-contained chambers used to remove contaminants from people or objects before they enter a cleanroom or other controlled environment. It works by blowing high-velocity, HEPA-filtered air over the person or object to remove any particles that may be on their surface or clothing.


A HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) filter is a type of air filter that can remove at least 99.97% of particles that are 0.3 microns in size or larger. HEPA filters are frequently used in cleanrooms, hospitals, and other environments where air quality is critical. In an air shower, HEPA filters are frequently used to clean the air that is blown over the person or object being decontaminated. The HEPA filter removes any particles that may be present in the air, ensuring that the air shower is effective at removing contaminants. Overall, the combination of an air shower and a HEPA filter is a highly effective way to remove contaminants and maintain a clean environment in critical areas such as cleanrooms and laboratories.


An air shower is a two doors walk-through dust removal system, which is fitted prior to cleanroom entrance. The objective of setting up air shower system is to control the risk of spreading contaminants in the cleanroom environment by removing particulate matter on the personnel by throwing class 100 airflow. The air shower machine throws high velocity HEPA filtered air through jet nozzles which removes particulate matter (includes solid and liquid particles suspend in air and some of them are hazardous in nature). The contaminated air is again filtered and re-circulated. With-in seconds, the person entering into air shower comes out entirely cleans i.e. free from harmful dust. Electronics and Pharmaceutical productions and animal breeding laboratories are some of areas where air showers are widely used.
