The Purpose of Air Showers
Air showers are enclosed, self-contained chambers designed to decontaminate personnel and equipment before entering a cleanroom or controlled environment. The primary purpose of an air shower is to minimize the transfer of external contaminants into the clean area, ensuring a pristine working environment.
How Air Showers Work
When an individual enters an air shower, high-velocity, filtered air is blasted onto them from multiple nozzles. This high-speed air flow dislodges and removes loose particles from the person's clothing and body. The dislodged contaminants are then captured by the air shower's filtration system, preventing them from entering the cleanroom.
