Air flow

Air flow

  • The laminar flow of air is ensured by two layers of CG membranes glued onto a stainless steel frame.
  • The CG frames can be quickly and easily changed by hand in the isolator. A negative effect on the air flow pattern is largely avoided by intelligent design.
  • The air circulation unit is likewise equipped with generously sized pneumatically sealed maintenance doors to allow optimum access to measurement connections for filters and air fans. Additionally, a regulator for monitoring and controlling the flow and speed of additional conditioned air and alarm for LAF flow speed is included.
  • Supply air exchange rate is min. 150 air changes per hour.
  • Ventilation can optionally be carried out using preconditioned supply air or the treatment of outside air by means of cooling, heating, dehumidifying and humidifying.
Structure

Structure

  • Double wall principle to return air within the wall and effect a uniform flow pattern.
  • Pneumatically sealed doors made of tempered safety glass.
  • The pneumatic silicone seal is integrated into the door and not into the frame of the manipulation unit. This prevents any damage or contamination of the seal through maintenance work.
  • The pneumatic seals are not glued into the groove and thus can be changed very quickly and without contamination or residues.
  • The tightness of the pneumatic seals is cyclically monitored by pressure switches. Automatic alarms are triggered if the values fall below set limits.
  • The design of the structure avoids the need for unprotected and maintenance-intensive silicone grouting in the inside the manipulation unit.
