In precision-manufacturing industries such as the semiconductor industry, even a few gas or other particles remaining in the air, uncollected, can harm the end product. Cleanroom manufacturing facilities depend on their filters. Choosing the appropriate commercial filters in this environment is critical.
What happens if particles contaminate circuitry or components? In the manufacturing process of semiconductors, contaminants can cause corrosion, malfunctions or other problems that lead to poor quality. Failure to meet specifications or work at peak performance is a serious matter.
Choosing Commercial Filters for Minimal Environmental Impact
Choosing commercial filters for cleanrooms depends on three factors:
- Cleanroom classification
- Choice of filter
- How the filter impacts the environment
That last factor calls for some explanation. Many companies manufacturing semiconductors are concerned about their impact on the environment, especially companies manufacturing solar panels. These companies often emphasize their “green” awareness to their customers, employees and shareholder. As such, they want to minimize their carbon footprint whenever possible. By choosing the most energy efficient filters possible, recycling used filters, and maximizing the life of their filters, such companies can minimize their carbon footprint. They can clearly share with interested stakeholders how their filtration systems, among many steps in the manufacturing process, soften their impact on the environment.
As the critical particle size for safer environments shrinks to almost unimaginable levels, upgrading and improving your cleanroom and manufacturing facility’s filters is imperative.
