Cleanroom Production Driving Trust & Quality for E-Cigarette Manufacturers

The future continues to look bright for e-cigarette manufacturers, as Public Health England (PHE) declared last month "an expert review of the latest evidence concludes that e-cigarettes are around 95% safer than smoked tobacco and they can help smokers to quit.”

Vaping has been a controversial topic and e-cigarettes have been hitting headlines hard since their recent rise in popularity, however new regulation due to come in force next year (20th May 2016) will improve trust and drive quality in the industry.

Regulation for Safety & Quality

The consultation draft from the Department of Health warns producers must ensure that certain substances are not present in the nicotine containing liquid - even at trace levels, if that trace level is avoidable during production. Our cleanrooms control the introduction, generation and retention of avoidable contamination.

The regulation will ensure:
  • Safety
  • Quality
  • Compliance
Non-compliance will risk:
  • product withdrawal
  • product recall
The revised Tobacco Products Directive (TPD), which regulates tobacco products at EU level, will classify e-cigarettes as "medicinal products that must be licensed by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).”

This increased regulation will ensure manufacturers focus on making their e-liquids safe for consumption. Controlled production environments will be critical in ensuring the highest levels of safety, quality and compliance are achieved.

Focus on Quality Production

Airborne particles, although invisible to the naked eye, could create microbial contamination in the vapour for electronic cigarettes. Cleanroom production will significantly reduce this risk for personal vaporiser (PV) manufacturers, as cleanrooms are constructed and used in a manner to control contamination that shouls be avoidable during manufacture.

Connect 2 Cleanrooms has multiple choices for e-cigarette manufacturers, looking to create a classified clean environment.

HEPA-lite

HEPA-lite™

HEPA-lite™ is a mobile, adjustable cleanroom unit which can be fitted at mission-critical elements of the manufacturing process line or benching. It provides localised filtered air to protect processes from contamination, without the need to enclose the entire machine set-up within a cleanroom environment.
HEPA-lite™ reduces both the time and costs associated with creating a Class 5-9 environment or ISO 14644-1 compliant production line, making it extremely popular for the e-cigarette market.


Modular Cleanroom

Laminar Flow Cleanroom
A modular cleanroom creates a clean air supply within a room that can be built around a filling and production area and can fully or part enclose the machine set up within a classified cleanroom environment. The modular design means the cleanroom is extendable, making it scalable as business grows.


Laminar Flow CabinetLaminar Flow

Similar to the HEPA-lite™, but is more of a fixed solution, a laminar flow unit supplies unidirectional clean air over a bench to create a working environment ideal for manual filling or packaging.
