Desiccant Types to Prevent Moisture Damage
Top 6 Desiccant Types to Prevent Moisture Damage Moisture Control is extremely important when manufacturing electrical components and conducting scientific research on biological and chemical samples. Failure to maintain low Relative Humidity (RH) inside a desiccator chamber can damage or destroy components and samples. Desiccators are airtight enclosures to prevent moisture from entering the chamber, but what happens to the moisture inside the box? Below are 6 standard desiccant’s that can be used with a
Cleanroom Gowning Procedure
Basic Cleanroom Gowning Procedure (Non-sterile Cleanrooms) Download Cleanroom Gowning Procedure Poster What is a Cleanroom? Cleanrooms are typically used in scientific research and manufacturing to provide a controlled environment for handling sensitive components and samples. Cleanrooms are constructed in a way to minimize particles from being introduced, generated or retained inside the room. Depending on the cleanroom classification and application, the gowning procedure may vary. However, the following sequence is basically the same. The higher
Horizontal vs Vertical Laminar Flow Hoods
Horizontal vs Vertical Laminar Flow Hoods Laminar flow hoods are designed to protect samples and parts from particulate contamination. Air flows in a uniform direction with a constant speed within the enclosed bench with little to no crossover air streams. Airborne contamination is filtered through HEPA (filter 99.99% @ 0.3µm) or ULPA (99.999% @0.12µm) filters providing the cleanest work area. Laminar flow hoods are available in horizontal or vertical airflow configurations. A horizontal flow hood
Pharmaceutical Cleanroom Cleanrooms provide an enclosed environment with a controlled level of particulates such as dust, vapors and airborne particles. Setting up a clean room involves a series of steps that include engineering, fabrication and a control strategy. While they are used in a range of medical, scientific and manufacturing application, we will be providing a simplistic overview of cleanrooms for pharmaceutical applications that do not handle potent chemical or hazards biologicals. Depending on types
Common Houseplant Genetically Modified to Fight Air Pollution HEPA filters are commonly used in homes to filter air pollution such as pollen, pet dander, and tobacco smoke. But there are pollutants that are too small and pass right through the filter. A research team at the University of Washington have modified a common houseplant to help remove small hazardous compounds indoors. Chloroform and benzene are hazardous are two pollutants found indoors that are far too
