A cleanroom is a controlled environment with an installation that removes airborne particles by air flow and does not introduce particles by this air flow. Not all particles > 5 µm are removed by air flow because of deposition on all surfaces. The number of particles that are not removed because of deposition increases with particle size (50 % for particles > 80 % for particles > 25 µm and >90 % for particles > 40 µm).
The resulting air cleanliness for all particle sizes during operation (when people are working in the cleanroom) can be monitored by measuring the concentration of airborne particles up to 5 µm and by measuring the particle deposition of particles > 5 µm and the resulting surface cleanliness at critical locations.
Brookhuis ADI Cleanroom provides products, services and support to improve and control the operational quality of cleanrooms and clean controlled environments. The products for real-time particle deposition monitoring are based on APMON Technology. APMON systems consist of a base computer and one or more sensors.
The APMON systems monitor the deposition of particles that are not removed by the ventilation system of the cleanroom or clean controlled environment.
The present APMON systems for monitoring the particle deposition rate in a cleanroom in operation are:
Brookhuis offers training and coaching services for (potential) customers to learn more about the use of the APMON and how to use the data to find ways to improve the operational quality of the cleanroom.
