Description: ABEC has established an ISO 7 cleanroom at its European headquarters, enhancing supply assurance for its global Custom Single Run (CSR®) customers. The scope of the cleanroom installation included a standalone structural steel system, mechanical and electrical services (M&E), gas tie-in to house utilities, de-ionized water, compressed air, a new building management system (BMS) with PC and network capability and fully flush cleanroom system with maintenance access above the fully certified ISO 14644 Class 7, Class 8 and CNC production suite.

Cleanroom features include 1.5Kn walk-on ceiling 3 m internal height and an HTM 03-01 compliant HVAC system supplying air through terminal HEPA filtration to ISO 14644 Class 7 and Class 8 rooms. Energy efficiency fully flush LED lighting with top access for maintenance was incorporated into the cleanroom ceiling. Kingspan’s Ultra Tech precision fully flush panel system was used throughout to minimize potential area for contaminants to gather. The system uses the CLEANsafe 55 coating, which boasts superior durability, chemical resistance and antibacterial properties. The cleanroom door matrix consisting of fully flush interlocked doors and automatic rapid roll doors for goods movement. ClearSphere’s own CTCB-I qualified validation engineers managed the qualification process. This included bringing the cleanroom from Design Qualification through Installation Qualification and on to Performance Qualification. ClearSphere looks forward to working with ABEC in the future as there are plans in place to provide an ISO 14644 Class 4 unidirectional airflow along with ongoing validation and maintenance servicing ensuring continued compliance for ABEC Technologies and its customers.

Completion date: April 2018
