Air Shower Manufacturing Methods

How Are Air Showers Produced?

Overview of Air Shower Function and Purpose

Air showers are an important piece of equipment used to remove contaminants from personnel, equipment, and materials before they enter cleanrooms or other controlled environments.

Removing Contaminants from Personnel and Items

Powerful directed jets of air dislodge dust, dirt, lint and other debris from the surfaces of people and objects passing through the enclosure.

Preventing Contamination in Cleanrooms and Controlled Areas

By removing contaminants air showers help prevent the introduction of particles, microbes, or chemicals that could adulterate sensitive spaces.

A combination of fabrication, integration, assembly, and testing methods produce air showers:

Metal Fabrication of Enclosure

The outer structure is cut, formed, welded, and finished from sheet metal using machining tools.

Integration of Filtration System

The filters and housings are installed and connected to the air ducting.

Installation of Air Nozzles

Nozzles are strategically positioned and secured at precise angles to optimize airflow coverage.

Electronics Assembly

Control panels are populated with timers, indicators, buttons, wiring and interfaces.

Final Assembly and Testing

All components integrate together, followed by thorough multi-point testing to verify performance.
