We are considering adding a clean room to our operations, but we have no experience in this area.  Is anyone aware of a resource that explains the different types of clean rooms with requirements and certification processes?

We are in the evaluation phase, and are trying to determine the cost of implementation.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Joe, at Thogus Products, we have recently added a mobile clean room to our injection molding operations.

If you want to talk about how we went about adopting the clean room technology for our facility, please feel free to give me a call as I will help you any way that I can.

Joe,
I would encourage you to speak with Dr. Philip Austin.  Dr. Austin was one of the original authors of the clean room standards that ISO adopted.

PCI hired Dr. Austin to review and validate the designs of our new 16,000SqFt Class 8 molding room addition.

He also sells several books that thouroughly define and explain all aspects of clean room air handling equipment, maintenance procedures, verification procedures, ect.

He can be contacted at 800.831.5351 or http://www.acornind.com

Please advise if PCI can be of a resource - Ben Harp 716.662.8550
