Monitoring of temperature and humidity control within a
Cleanroom is essential to reduce microbial growth and control static build-up,
as well as ensuring employee comfort.
Relatively humidity (RH) influences a number of factors that
could degrade the overall cleanroom performance, including:
also impacts particle control: High humidity can cause staff members to sweat,
and in low humidity conditions, static electricity can affect the movement of
particles. For example, when it is too dry, any residual particles on labels or
supply packaging will stick to gloves and other surface. Higher humidity
also becomes oppressive; humidity lower than 30% leads to dryness, cracked
skin, respiratory discomfort and unhappy personnel.
A 40% to 60% range in RH minimises the impact of bacteria
and also falls well within the personal comfort zone.
Selecting the right cleanroom apparel for maximum
shed particles more rapidly when sweating or shivering. A staff member who is
too hot is more likely to take gowning shortcuts, while a staff member who is
too cold is more prone to wearing inappropriate garments for a the controlled
environment. A comfortable cleanroom temperature is directly related to the
extent of gowning required.
