Cleanroom Client List
Dozens of customers for
Terra modular cleanrooms
  • Complete turnkey clean room meets cleanliness standards for control of submicron particles, ensuring a clean compounding environment
  • Internal partition with swing door creates a separate gowning ante-room, in accordance with USP 797 regulations
  • Powder-coated steel support frame creates a rigid, durable structure that requires no external bracing or ceiling support
  • BioSafe® interior Fiberglass-Reinforced Plastic (FRP) or C-PVC panels resist damage from physical contact, and stand up to IPA and other sterilizing agents
  • Includes two differential pressure gauges to simplify USP-797 certification

Terra's Compounding Clean Rooms provide the ideal environment for compounding sterile injectables and other critical operations.

Designed to meet or exceed the ISO 7 requirements of USP 797, the turnkey rooms include three HEPA filter/fan units that provide a total of 1950 CFM (3315 m³/hr) of 99.99% particle-free air (measured at 0.3 µm diameter). Class C FRP panels meet ISO 7 (Class 10,000) standards, while Class A panels perform to ISO 5 (Class 100) cleanliness requirements, and are Factory Mutual (FM) approved. C-PVC panels meet ISO 5 requirements and are FM approved.

Select between 6'W x 8'L and 6'W x 10'L floor plans, or specify a custom dimension. Both rooms include an internal partition with a swing door that creates a separate antechamber for personnel gowning or product staging. Both the entry and partition doors open inward, allowing workers to avoid potential contamination by backing-in, never having to touch the handles. In the typical configuration, the primary compounding room accommodates a 6'-long workbench, which provides ample space for a laminar flow hood, as stipulated by USP 797 requirements (order bench and hood separately).

FRP Panel Options

Both Classes of FRP panels feature a unique advanced polymer non-outgassing adhesive, allowing installation on surfaces such as drywall. A specialized seam sealant provides trim-free seams that expand and contract to accommodate temperature-induced dimensional changes without creating cracks or gaps. Finally, a patented surfacing technology seals panels uniformly to enhance durability and prevent particle emission and microbial growth.

Class A BioSafe interior panels are the only FRP wall panels certified to ISO 5 standards for added cleanliness, and FM approved for increased safety and fire hazard protection.

C-PVC Panel Option

Cleanroom chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC) wall panels are tested and certified to meet ISO 5 – 8 cleanliness standards. These compressed panels also offer excellent chemical resistance and prevent particle emission and microbial growth.

Their unique solvent-free silicone adhesive allows installation on wallboard substrate mounted to Terra's steel frame structure, creating a strong, rigid structure. Seams are welded to provide trim-free seams, without cracks or gaps. Optional PVC coving is available for floors and corners to further simplify cleaning (see photo above).

Dual Magnehelic® pressure gauges, located on the outer control panel, monitor the cascading pressure levels in the anteroom and main room, simplifying USP-797 certification.

The USP-797 Compounding Clean Rooms below do not include floors; they are designed for installation on a flat, sealed, non-particulating, crevice-free surface, which can be caulked to the clean room frame to form a seal. Talk to a Terra Product Specialist about installation of FRP or C-PVC panels.
