Fitting Lights in Cleanrooms

Cleanroom Lighting
Sam Armer, lead development engineer at Connect 2 Cleanrooms, discusses how lighting can complement and enhance a cleanroom’s functionality, benefiting the process and the operatives.

Cleanroom lighting is often an afterthought in cleanroom design, as the primary function of a cleanroom is to reduce contamination. So when identifying the type of light fitting to use, consideration needs to be given not just to the lux levels required for the process, but to how this choice of lighting may affect airflow and filtration.

The environment, application and task must be carefully considered, with many choices to make depending on these variables. Arguably the greatest influence when choosing lighting is the ISO classification of the cleanroom.

The full article is available on Cleanroom Technology's website and includes the following considerations:
  • ISO class considerations
  • Service and maintenance
  • Room construction
  • Lighting control
  • Lux requirements
  • IP rating
  • Lighting colour
  • UV lighting
