What is a Dust-Free Air Shower?

A dust-free air shower is a specialized type of air shower engineered specifically to remove dust particles from personnel, equipment, and materials before they enter cleanroom environments.

Definition and Purpose

The primary purpose of dust-free air showers is protecting cleanrooms and sensitive processes from contamination by environmental and personnel-borne dust particles.

Key Design Elements

Dust-free air showers utilize HEPA filtration, turbulent directed air jets, smooth surface materials, automation, and advanced controls.

How it Differs from Standard Air Showers

Dust-free models employ technologies focused on eliminating the smallest particles, exceeding capabilities of standard industrial air showers.

Key selection factors include:

Airflow Velocity and Volume Required

Higher speeds and air volume improve small particle removal.

Types of Contaminants to Remove

Assess if designed for microbial, chemical or nanoparticulate contaminants.

Cleanroom Classification Level

Match capabilities to ISO Class 1-9 cleanroom specifications.

Traffic Volume Throughput

Accommodate personnel, cart and automation traffic flows.
