  • HEPA Filters: What is Yours Actually Doing?
    It is common knowledge that to have a clean environment inside a biosafety cabinet or clean bench, you have to have HEPA-filtered air. Presumably, the filter removes all contaminants, but does it really? How does a HEPA filter work? Are all HEPA filters created equal?
  • Handling, Installation and Burn-off Procedure for HEPA Filters
    HEPA Filter = High Efficiency Particulate Air Filter. High means 99.97% or higher. The efficiency is a measure of how effectively the filter traps particles. It is calculated by dividing the number of particles trapped by the total number impinging on the filter. Fewer than 3 in 10,000 are allowed
  • Use of HEPA Filters in Biological Safety Cabinets
    , or prevent health problems from prolonged exposure to allergens. How airborne particulates are controlled varies from industry to industry and from an occupational setting to a home environment. To better understand why HEPA filters are used in the biological safety cabinet industry, it is necessary
  • How Clean Is the Air Inside Your CO2 Incubator?
    CO2 incubator air cleanliness is a primary concern for preventing contamination in cell culture. Some manufacturers equip their incubators with a HEPA filter and claim to provide ISO Class 5 (Class 100) clean air conditions inside the chamber. However, it takes more than simply placing a small HEPA
  • MICRO: Defect/Yield Analysis - Kumar (January 2001)
    and witness wafer sampling was carried out to assess the types and levels of contaminants in the cleanroom air. Because the problem started shortly after HEPA filters had been replaced, outgassing from these filters was suspected. To confirm this hypothesis, tests were conducted to determine if volatile
  • The Advantages of Using an Electronically Commutated Motor (ECM) in Biosafety Cabinets (.pdf)
    sensing and control of motor speed and torque allow for the programming of the motor to deliver constant air volume to the BSC even as HEPA filter loading changes.

    and efficiency. High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters and Ultra Low Penetration Air (ULPA) filters are commonly used in the pharmaceutical industry to filter make-up and recirculated air. The adoption of alternative filter technologies might allow for lower energy consumption. For example, new
  • MICRO:Extreme Silicon by Michael G. Harrison p.83 (June '99)
    particles moving through the HEPA and ULPA filters in cleanroom and minienvironment air supplies rub against the filter media, they generate a triboelectric surface charge. These charged particles are then attracted to surfaces with the opposite charge, which can quickly cause process equipment, wafer
