Basics of Cleanroom Design
Instructor: Wei Sun, Engsysco, Inc.

This course will consist of two segments. The first will discuss the fundamentals of cleanrooms and HVAC systems design, including the classifications of cleanrooms, cleanroom ISO standards, design and testing guidelines by ASHRAE and NEBB, particulate sources from indoor and outdoor, and their impacts on cleanroom air cleanliness. Detailed discussions will cover airflow quantity, velocity, flow patterns and floor arrangement, key controlling variables on cleanroom’s air cleanliness, 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 existing and emerging design tools, approaches, and research findings in such areas as airflow rate determination by table method and modeling method; cleanroom’s real-time particle concentration monitoring, cleanroom’s response in challenges of varying airflow rate and particle generation (emission) rate; cleanroom’s recovery rate and recovery time after a major disturb or upset; demand flow control to conserve fan energy based on real-time room particle concentration; primary, secondary and tertiary air handling systems design strategies; airlock performance, CFD simulation, and finally the autonomous computer control of cleanroom ISO cleanliness class. etc.
