Overview

Air showers are regularly utilized in industries such as biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, electronics manufacturing, and semiconductor fabrication where it is crucial to maintain cleanliness and control contamination.

A personnel shower is a specially designed enclosure or chamber that is used to remove contaminants, especially particulate matter, from the surface of objects, clothing, or people before they enter a cleanroom or other controlled environment.

The personnel decontamination air shower from PBSC is available in two designs. Both choices remove particles from the operative with high-velocity air jets as they enter a clean environment or exit a contaminated environment, with 9 x adjustable stainless-steel nozzles on each of the two side walls in the shower.

The air shower cycle duration and velocity of air jets are optimized to maximize decontamination efficiency.

Datasheet

Innovation. Design. Quality

The air shower is made of either stainless steel or powder-coated steel. It has interlocked float and toughened glass personnel doors, with 9 adjustable stainless-steel nozzles on each of the side walls, totaling 18.

There are three types of air showers available:

  • 2 Door Straight for straight-through transfer
  • 2 Door Right Angle for angled transfer
  • 3 Door T-Section for straight-through or angle transfer with the shower mounted between three rooms in a T-Section configuration.

Air showers are essential for maintaining cleanliness and controlling contamination in controlled environments like cleanrooms. It is crucial to design, install, operate, and maintain them correctly to ensure their effectiveness in preserving the integrity of the controlled environment and meeting regulatory requirements.
