Improve the overall quality of products
Providing necessary on-site adjustments of cycle times and process controls
How Air Showers Are Used
In order to reduce risk of transferring pollutants into a cleanroom, a worker enters the sealed air shower where it then cycles through a brief process in which high-velocity streams of HEPA Filtered air is blown onto to the worker through multiple jets, resulting in contaminants being eliminated.
