1. What is a clean room?
Cleanrooms are required in industries such as pharmaceuticals, semiconductor manufacturing, food production, and aerospace, where emission levels of environmental pollutants are very low. Achieving and maintaining the necessary extreme cleanliness while still operating heavy equipment (such as lifting and manipulating product shelves) requires understanding why cleanrooms require very specific expertise.
2. Determine the clean room standard
Cleanroom standards are determined by particles as small as microns and contamination in parts per million. ISO Standard 14644-1 defines a cleanroom as "a room with controlled concentrations of particulate matter in the air, constructed and used in such a way as to minimize the introduction, generation and retention of particulate matter in the room, while other room related parameters such as temperature, humidity and pressure, controlled as needed.
3. Clean room manufacturing process
The demand for clean room facilities in the manufacturing process continues to grow, and in line with this demand, so does the need for proper lifting equipment. This can be seen in the rise of high-tech manufacturing, especially electronics that must be manufactured and assembled in a dust-free hygienic environment, which is one of the main requirements driving the demand for dedicated cleanroom lift equipment.
4. Food and pharmaceutical industries
In the food and pharmaceutical industries, safety and quality have always been a focus and remain the driving force behind increasingly stringent cleanroom standards. The food and beverage industry emphasizes the need to manufacture lifting equipment with corrosion resistance such as food-grade/non-lubricated and sealed components, which are specialized requirements. The BH electric belt hoist is one of our most versatile clean room hoists, it can be equipped with lube-free Dyneema belts, gearboxes etc. can provide biodegradable lubricants.
5. Customized clean room improvement solutions
Dust room lifting solutions are usually tailor-made, tailor-made systems that meet both operational requirements and hygiene standards, so we offer a wide range of equipment including electric chain hoists, wire rope hoists, belt hoists, Manual chain hoists and winches, jib cranes, gantry cranes and overhead crane systems, all comply with clean room standards and are suitable for use in hygienic environments.
The need for cleanroom-grade equipment that is both fit-for-purpose and cost-effective is a common challenge facing the industry today.
