Filtration

Cleanrooms, HVAC System Design, and Engineering Fundamentals
 

This course will consist of two segments. The first will discuss the fundamentals of cleanrooms and HVAC systems design, including the definition and classifications of cleanrooms, cleanroom standards, and particulate sources. Detailed discussions will cover airflow quantity, velocity, flow patterns and floor arrangement, air shower, airlock and basic pressurization, HVAC, plumbing, fire protection, and process systems. Common cleanroom devices and equipment, architectural construction materials, cleaning procedures, testing standards, and other aspects will be highlighted. The second segment will present new design tools, approaches, and research findings in such areas as airflow rate determination and demand flow control to conserve fan energy; primary, secondary and tertiary air handling systems design strategies; airlock performance; etc.

Who should attend?

I need to learn more about cleanroom HVAC systems because:
  • I am a cleanroom design engineer from an architectural or engineering firm
  • I am a cleanroom design/build contractor
  • I am a cleanroom research professional
  • I am a cleanroom product sales engineer
Course materials
  • Copy of IEST-RP-CC012.3: Considerations in Cleanroom Design
  • Copy of PowerPoint presentation in a course binder
  • Certificate of course attendance with completion of CEUs
This Recommended Practice (RP), IEST-RP-CC012.3, makes recommendations regarding factors to consider in the design of cleanroom facilities. The RP is intended to provide users with a means to establish performance criteria for cleanrooms. This discussion focuses on those environmental conditions that typically confront cleanroom designers and users. The document includes a sample cleanroom construction protocol.
