Why did the client look for a cleanroom solution?

The client develops applications incorporating 0D semiconductor nanoparticles, known in the industry as ‘quantum dots’.  They have expanded from a university spin-out to a global company, partnering major R&D and blue-chip industrial organisations, from the UK to the Far-East.
The client simulates their client’s production environment, to allow accurate prototype development for semiconductor device applications.  A clean-air environment is key to this, so back in 2009 the client invested in a Connect 2 Cleanrooms modular cleanroom.  

Why did the client choose a modular cleanroom solution from Connect 2 Cleanrooms?

“It was a logical decision to go with Connect 2 Cleanrooms for the relocation and extension of our cleanroom facilities as we were happy with the way our existing facilities worked.  The installation went smoothly as their engineers worked around other contractors on site and we found them very accommodating,” explains the contact.  “The cleanroom meets all our expectations.”

How did Connect 2 Cleanrooms help the client?

The modular construction of the cleanroom facilities meant that when the client needed to extend their space in February 2012, Connect 2 Cleanrooms were able to provide an efficient value proposition.  The cleanroom was re-located, extended and re-commissioned in the space of just 4 days; simultaneously bringing the cleanroom facilities up to date and retaining the value of their initial investment.

The extension grew the original cleanroom from 47.7m² to 104m².  This more than doubled the capacity of the classified ISO 14644-1 Class 6 area.  Additional remote variable speed controllers were installed to give economic and efficient zone control for a total of 7 zones.
