Hi, what is the purpose of clean rooms? What are the control parameters of clean room? Is it possible to map those thru sap?

Hello Yadav,

A cleanroom is an environment, typically used in manufacturing or scientific research, that has a low level of environmental pollutants such as dust, airborne microbes, aerosol particles and chemical vapors. More accurately, a cleanroom has a controlled level of contamination that is specified by the number of particles per cubic meter at a specified particle size. To give perspective, the ambient air outside in a typical urban environment might contain as many as 35,000,000 particles per cubic meter, 0.5 u03BCm and larger in diameter, corresponding to an ISO 9 cleanroom.

Clean Room Definition and Control parameters as per the Computer and Computer Parts mfg unit

A work area in which the air quality, temperature and humidity are highly regulated in order to protect sensitive equipment from contamination. Clean rooms are important features in the production of silicon chips, hard disk drives and other technologies such as satellites. The air in a clean room is repeatedly filtered to remove dust particles and other impurities that can damage the production of highly sensitive technologies.

The measure of the air quality of a clean room is described in Federal Standard 209. Clean rooms are rated as "Class 10,000," where there exists no more than 10,000 particles larger than 0.5 microns in any given cubic foot of air; "Class 1000," where there exists no more than 1000 particles; and "Class 100," where there exists no more than 100 particles. Hard disk drive fabrication requires a Class 100 clean room.

People who work in clean rooms must wear special protective clothing called "bunny suits" that do not give off lint particles and prevent human skin and hair particles from entering the room's atmosphere.

Cleanrooms are highly control environments which are sterile and have a highly reduced contamination risk factor such as a dust-free environment.

To capture the same in sap,,,,,

you can create each clean room as equipment and then treat is as equipment.

Hi,

Just adding further to the elaborate note of SHyamal, the moisture content and temparature of the air quality are also need to be considered. Further, if the clean room is free from presence of human operations/ very least time time operated, it is better to maintain the clean room with inert gases like Nitorgen flushing and maintenence, which will be an added advantage than usingfiltered air to maintain the clean rooms. The positive pressure maintenenace in the clean room is another major task can also be cutdown.

regards,

mahesh.
