What makes a "Clean Room" clean? This deceptively simple question is critically important for those in the Pharmaceutical or Food processing industries.
International standards have been created to determine the level of air cleanliness for specific room uses. Along with these standards, there are USDA and FDA as well as Australian and New Zealand guidelines that help companies prevent contamination of their product during manufacturing, packaging, and storage.
So whether the contaminants are particles and fibres, chemicals, bacteria, or electrostatic charges, the importance of controlling the total environment is paramount.
To aid in meeting or exceeding these standards and regulations, Ulti Group has an extensive range of products which can be configured to provide the best solution to any clean room application.
The main problem with doorways into a clean room are:
Curtain to curtain contact. The outside of the curtain may contact the ‘clean’ side of the curtain when rolling up, transferring contaminants from one side to the other.
The bottom of the door touching the ground. If harmful microorganisms are on the floor, the bottom seal of the door may touch them when the door is down. When the door raises, it may come in contact with the forklift as it goes through and these harmful microorganisms may transfer onto the product the forklift is carrying.
Small components on the door system. These are perfect places for bacteria and contaminants to congregate and grow!
So what solutions can we provide?
The FasTrax Clean door, a high speed fabric door, specifically built for the clean room environment. Its non-contact spiral technology means one side of the curtain never touches the other, reducing the transfer of contaminants, and also the door is fully wash down and cleanable, to help keep bacteria out.
To stop contaminants on the bottom of the door falling onto product, opening to either side, so there is no chance of bacteria falling from above onto your valuable product.
We have many other products which we can change and adjust to suit specific clean-room needs, and we are waiting for our chance to help the next company improve their facility, by making it cleaner, faster, and safer.
