HVAC Design for Cleanroom Facilities
This online engineering PDH course provides an overview of cleanroom and discusses the key HVAC design aspects applicable to cleanrooms.
Although the idea of a cleanroom may seem right out of science fiction, clean and controlled environments are actually used by a wide range of industries. From their more obvious uses in medical facilities to their necessity in integrated circuit manufacture, cleanrooms provide an essential role in modern production and research. At its most basic level, a cleanroom is just what it sounds like: an area kept free of contaminants.
There are five (5) key elements for the control of airborne particulate matter:
- Preventing entry of particulate matter
- Purging of particulate matter
- Prohibiting the generation of particulate matter
- Protecting the product from impact and settling of particulate matter
- Providing an area for the cleaning of parts and personnel
This 6 PDH online course is applicable to mechanical and HVAC engineers, process engineers, architects, building designers, contractors, energy auditors, facility managers who are involved in the design and installation of cleanroom facilities.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- State the four fundamental rules that apply to cleanrooms
- Define contamination and list the various sources of contamination
- List the various classifications of cleanrooms as per Fed Standard 209 and ISO 14644 standards
- List the key differences between cleanroom HVAC and conventional systems HVAC
- State the four basic mechanisms of filtration and describe the methods of testing online filters
- State the specifications of HEPA and ULPA filters
- Describe the air velocity and the air change requirements for different cleanliness classifications
- Describe the design approaches for unidirectional and non-unidirectional air distribution
