What is the cleanroom air shower?

A Cleanroom Air Shower is a self-contained chamber that uses high-velocity HEPA-filtered air to remove contaminants from personnel or goods entering or leaving a cleanroom. It functions by blowing compressed air onto the user or item, removing loose particles, and then filtering the air to capture the particles before it is recirculated.

  • The operation of the system is fully automated, with electronically interlocked doors and a photoelectric sensor for added safety.
  • The inner wall plate, door, bottom plate, and nozzle are all constructed from durable stainless steel (SS304).
  • The air shower features a modular design that allows for easy assembly and transportation.
  • The air shower time is fully adjustable (0-999 seconds) and clearly displayed.
  • The system features a two-stage filtration system that includes primary and high-efficiency filters for optimal air purification.
  • The use of high-performance EVA sealing material ensures excellent sealing performance.
  • Only reliable electronic components from reputable, well-known brands are used in the system.
  • Optional rotating nozzles provide more thorough and efficient cleaning of personnel and equipment entering or exiting a cleanroom environment. By rotating, the nozzles can direct high-velocity streams of filtered air to all areas of the body, including those that are harder to reach with fixed nozzles, such as the back, shoulders, and legs. This ensures that any particles or contaminants on the surface of the person or object are effectively removed before entering the cleanroom.
  • Optional antistatic nozzles in an air shower can help to reduce the buildup of static electricity on personnel and equipment entering or exiting the cleanroom. Static electricity can attract and hold particles, which can compromise the cleanliness of the cleanroom and pose a risk to sensitive products and processes. By using antistatic nozzles in an air shower, the static charge on the person or object can be neutralized, preventing the attraction of particles and reducing the risk of contamination. This can help to improve product quality and safety, while also ensuring that the cleanroom environment is maintained at the highest levels of cleanliness and sterility.

Importance of Cleanroom Air Showers

Cleanroom Air Showers are crucial in ensuring a contamination-free environment within a cleanroom. It serves as an essential component of the personnel and goods entry and exit process, removing any contaminants that may be carried by people or goods before they enter the cleanroom. Failure to have Cleanroom Air Showers in place can lead to product contamination, which can result in costly recalls, product waste, and damaged reputation.

What is the different between a cleanroom air shower, a mist shower, and a water shower?

Cleanroom Air Shower, Mist Shower, and Water Shower are all designed to remove contaminants from individuals or items before they enter controlled environments. However, they differ in their mechanisms and the extent to which they clean: 

Air Shower: This is a common type used in cleanrooms and similar controlled spaces. It blows high-velocity, filtered air from nozzles to dislodge and remove particles from people or objects. It’s effective for removing surface particles and preventing them from entering the cleanroom.

Mist Shower: A mist shower releases a fine mist or spray of water mixed with disinfectants or cleaning agents. The mist settles on surfaces and particles, helping to remove and neutralize contaminants. Mist showers can be useful for areas where thorough surface decontamination is essential.

Water Shower: A water shower involves rinsing individuals or objects with water jets. While it can physically remove larger particles and some contaminants, it might not be as effective as an air shower for fine particles. Water showers are often used in situations where direct contact with water won’t harm items, such as equipment or tools.

Each type has its advantages and limitations. Cleanroom air showers are effective for removing loose particles, mist showers provide thorough surface decontamination, and water showers are suitable when direct water contact is permissible. The choice depends on the cleanliness standards of the environment and the specific decontamination requirements.


A personnel air shower is designed to remove contaminants from individuals entering or leaving the cleanroom, while a goods air shower is designed to remove contaminants from materials, equipment, or products entering or leaving the cleanroom.

A Cleanroom Air Shower works by blowing high-velocity HEPA-filtered air onto personnel or goods entering or leaving the cleanroom, effectively removing contaminants.

Filters in Cleanroom Air Showers should be replaced at recommended intervals to ensure that they remain effective in capturing contaminants. The frequency of filter replacement depends on the usage and the level of contamination in the cleanroom.
