What is an Air shower?
Air Shower is a self contained well built factory assembled and designed to deliver a spray of moving air from nozzles transported and virtually can be installed at any site. Absolute filter-fan module provide positive pressurization and filtration down to 99.97% efficiency on 0.3 micron. The Clean Air inside the Shower will support a very high degree of sterility and clean air condition.The system is supplied with optionally aluminium grated floor located approximately 6 inches above datum level. Duct air chassis are installed within the walls of the units. While the system is in operation, both doors will get automatically locked. In case of power failure or an emergency, the doors get unlocked.Air Shower is constructed of Mild Steel Powder coated / Stainless Steel 304 grade. Provided with two aluminium framed acrylic / glass door with automatic locking device. Statically/dynamically balanced, blower draws the air through pre-filters and throws it through HEPA filter into the chamber. Suitable to work on 220V, 1 phase 50 Hz, AC supply
What we excel in
Our cleanroom air showers help you maintain a dust-proof and contamination-proof area inside. We suggest that you keep the air showers just before the entrance to your production area or research and testing centre.
We are the best air shower manufacturers with our products in demand across industries by small and large players.
Air Shower working
1. The worker passes through the entry door and a sensor activates interlock magnets, which locks the air shower and cleanroom doors.
2. Numerous adjustable nozzles blow high-velocity streams of Class 100 filtered air onto the worker.
3. The high-velocity air creates a flapping effect on clothing which produces a scrubbing action, removing particulates from cleanroom garments.
4. In order to make sure all particulates are removed, workers raise their arms and rotate in place.
5. Indicator lights signal the end of the cleaning cycle, and the cleanroom door opens.
Furthermore, it takes four to eight seconds of cleaning time and another two to four seconds for the air shower to purge contaminated air before the worker can exit. Computerized microprocessors control the cleaning and wait times associated with the air shower decontamination process.
Cleanroom Air Shower Tunnels Prevent Contamination between Cleanrooms
Air Shower Design considerations
Modular Clean Room Air Shower designs and configurations accommodate specific requirements for industry, as well as the number of personnel using the cleanroom. Modular cleanroom entry systems also simplify shipping and assembly.
Utilizing a 90-degree design, users enter on one side and exit to the right or left at a 90-degree angle. This allows the Air Shower, with nozzles on two opposing walls cleans workers with ease. In This configuration has fewer air nozzles than the straight-through design and requires the worker to turn 360 degrees to make sure that they’ve been thoroughly cleansed. Other designs may have double doors or even three doors for entry and exit. Configurations include cart/parts-cleaning air showers, which are used for carts, conveyors, pallets and continuous-part operation. Low-profile air showers accommodate facilities with ceilings less than 96 inches. ADA air showers are sized so a wheelchair can turn around in the air shower.
Accumax India offers many different standard and custom sizes and shapes of air showers for cleanrooms. Many of the standard varieties for personnel passage include straight through showers, 90-degree turn showers, and many lengths of tunnel-style air showers. These can also be designed according to the site conditions. We supply many other equipment like biosafety cabinets, fume hood, pass box, etc.
The number of persons that need to enter your cleanroom in each amount of time will have a major impact on the size of the air shower and filtration system that is required. Designs range from single batch systems where one person uses the shower at a time, to tunnel systems for larger groups to pass through quickly.Air Shower Tunnels are becoming more common because of the amount of cycle time needed for a shift change.
Like air locks, air showers have entrance and exit doors that cannot be opened at the same time. Workers enter one side and exit on the opposite side. When one door opens, the other door’s magnet energizes, preventing it from opening. During the cleaning cycle, both doors are locked to prevent anyone entering or leaving before the cycle is completed.
High-quality air shower shells are constructed of steel and painted with a strong, durable cleanroom-compatible finish. For some medical, pharmaceutical, or extremely wet environments, stainless steel construction is ideal.
Some manufacturers offer economy units made of laminated particleboard. However, this option has major weaknesses, including temperature and humidity fluctuations that can cause delamination. The materials are also easy to damage and susceptible to joint loosening. Any of these conditions may generate particulate or biological contamination.

Air Shower in Pharmaceutical industry
The purpose 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.

Air Shower Efficiency Testing
Accumax India is a big brand in the industry to validate the efficiency of our air showers using the body box test, a method pioneered by Accumax India .
- New clean room garments without laundry processing, which have residual particulate contamination from manufacturing in a non-clean room environment, are used.
- The operator gowns up (in a jumpsuit, booties, gloves, mask and hood), and enters a specially sealed enclosure (the body box). This enclosure is equipped with vertical laminar flow.
- The operator performs a series of standardized physical movements in order to induce the generation of particles in the body box, for a specific duration.
- A particle counter connected to the base of the body box measures particle count levels. This count is the baseline level.
- The operator gowns up using another garment from the same batch.
- The operator proceeds into the Air Shower (device under test), for a shower cycle.
- The operator exits the air shower and proceeds into the body box. In the body box the operator performs the same series of standardized physical movements in order to induce the generation of particles in the body box, for a specific duration
- Particle count levels are measured, and compared against the baseline. The overall effectiveness of the air shower under test and shower cycle is calculated. Shower cleaning efficacy at various particle sizes is also characterized.
- The test is repeated multiple times, to put together sufficient data and eliminate any bias. Exposure Time In Air Shower (SEC) Exposure Time In Air Shower (SEC)
Air Shower installation
Before you install your air showers make sure to get the complete specifications of the air shower that you are planning to install. You will need to work with a partner that provides ongoing support to their customers so that you are not stranded when something goes wrong with the air shower installation. Regular service is also required to ensure that your air showers are operating at an optimum level. The filtration system needs to be cleaned on a regular basis to sustain the best performance of your industrial air shower. Ongoing maintenance is therefore of paramount importance. Identify a highly experienced and well-established partner for your air shower installation so that they do not disappear from the scene after they have installed your air showers.
