    Cleanroom Gowning Benches - Features, Styles, Types, and Differences

    Manufacturers and research organizations spend considerable sums of money to ensure their cleanrooms adhere to critical cleanliness standards – disinfection procedures are optimized, quality controls are implemented and regular particle counts and microbial tests are performed to identify the smallest pockets of contamination. With many safeguards in place to limit contamination, including interlocking doors, pressure gradients, and air showers, the most common source of particles, whether viable or non-viable, stems from the cleanroom staff. The first line of defense in preventing human-borne particles from entering into a cleanroom is the gowning area.

    Portable Cleanroom ULPA Vacuums for Lead Dust, Cyanide, Hazardous Chemicals

    ULPA filtration vacuums are an indispensable tool when staring down challenging or potentially hazardous spills and messes in a laboratory or production environment. The most formidable of these messes typically include hazardous, poisonous, irritating, or nausea-inducing dust and powders that are fine enough to be aerosolized and distributed through the air as. To prevent aerosolized particle generation during cleanup and removal, specialized HEPA or ULPA vacuums are used to remove, capture, and contain these substances before safely disposing of them.

    Laminar Flow Hoods for Mushroom Cultivation, Horticulture, Mycology, Micropropagation

    Fungi proliferate in dark, damp, and warm environments which also serve as ideal environments for opportunistic pests, mold, bacteria, and plant-based viruses. Agar-based techniques are highly susceptible to contamination. Fungal contamination is difficult to reverse and quickly spreads throughout the local environments.

    Cleanroom Conversion Packages Comparison: Doors, Windows, Lights, Panels, and Power Control

    For retrofit projects converting an existing lab space into a cleanroom or cGMP area, the conventional solutions each come with unique challenges. New facility builds are cost-prohibitive, carry lengthy timelines, and hinge on the acquisition of a suitable facility. Depending on area requirements, installing a modular cleanroom inside an existing room is a fast, economical alternative, but often creates unusable or inaccessible space.

    Specialized Glove Boxes and Environmental Enclosures for Battery Cell Manufacturing

    A Lithium-Ion battery consists of a cathode, anode, current collectors, and a porous separator that prevents shorting of the anode and cathode. As the Li-ion cell discharges energy, there is a significant increase in both temperature and the pressure exerted by the reaction. These two factors have the potential to result in a runaway chemical reaction, and ultimately an explosion. Thus, calorimeters must measure both temperature and pressure changes that occur to identify anomalies and prevent dangerous situations.
