Air Shower Production Materials

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.

Typical materials used include:

Stainless Steel and Aluminum

Corrosion-resistant metals used for the structure withstand daily washdowns.


High-efficiency particulate air filters remove contaminants from recirculated air.

Industrial Control Systems

Programmable automation controls allow customization of cycles.

Quality Control and Assurance

Rigorous quality checks are conducted:

Materials Testing

Raw metals and components are verified to meet specifications.

Inspection of Critical Components

HEPA filters, nozzles, motors, etc. are inspected for defects before integration.

Performance Verification

Finished air showers go through comprehensive testing to confirm airflow, filtration efficiency and functionality.
