laminar air flow in pharmaceutical industry
Cleanrooms offer clean environments for the manufacturing of sensitive products. Diverse industries use these enclosed spaces to control certain environmental parameters, such as humidity, pressure, and temperature, that could compromise biologically or mechanically sensitive products.
Since 1995, Accumax India has specialized in manufacturing and distributing high quality cleanroom and contamination control equipment, supplies and accessories, making us an industry leader and one stop shop for cleanroom solutions. Our expert team understands the importance of functional cleanrooms; therefore, we offer a wide range of customizable products, such as laminar air flow equipment, to suit your critical environment needs.
What is Laminar Air Flow?
Laminar airflow involves the manipulation of air to force it to move in uniform velocities and directions. This is done through the use of laminar air flow hoods which utilize HEPA filters to clean all air entering the environment. This process ensures parallel, unidirectional airflow which minimizes crossovers of airstream and reduces particle contamination.
The type of cleanroom airflow used depends on factors such as cleanliness needs, size of facility, amount of personnel, amount of entries and exits, and quality of cleanroom garb.
Laminar flow is a type of airflow that is most effective in limiting contamination as it forces air to move in uniform directions and speeds to direct contaminants out of the space.
Benches and Hoods from Accumax India
Laminar flow hoods also called clean benches can be vertical, horizontal or fume hoods. These styles of benches and hoods filter and direct air flow within a confined space, and are used in laboratories and cleanrooms. They function by drawing air in and passing it through one or more HEPA filters before exhausting it across a work surface in a steady, uniform velocity. These systems are used broadly by medical, pharmaceutical, manufacturing, and other industries requiring clean air working environments.
There are several variations and classifications of laminar airflow equipment that offer different levels of protection for operators and products. Some of these include:
At Accumax India Industries, we offer the following equipment to suit the needs of cleanrooms:
