Sentry Air Systems is now adding a new product to our Portable Clean Room line: The Model SS-112-PCR. This unit is a 12” Wide Portable Clean Room with a Stainless Steel fan/filter chassis (housing).
This positive pressure hood includes a fan/HEPA filter assembly which provides an ISO Class 5 (class 100) clean room environment that is perfect for sensitive applications like Data Recovery and Tissue Culture. This mini portable clean room is also highly compact and portable: it has a footprint of 10.5″D x 12.5″ W x 15″H and weighs merely 20 lbs. Its small size and low cost make it an excellent cost effective alternative to both walk-in clean rooms and larger Laminar Flow hoods.
Additionally, not only are hard drive and disk driver component in data recovery application sensitive to the smallest amount of dust, they are very sensitive to electrostatic dissipation. Static charges can easily build up on most plastic materials and destroy the electronic components of the drives. To mitigate this risk, Sentry Air uses anti-static curtains on its 12” Portable Clean Room. These curtains not only block the dust particles, but they also block static build up. Furthermore, the stainless steel filter housing ensures that the airflow does not carry a static charge into the hood. Finally, for ESD sensitive applications, Sentry Air recommends coating the hood with an ESD Safety Shield like that sold by ACL Staticide (http://www.aclstaticide.com/01/product6300/6300_esd_safety_shield.pdf) or Kylon. (Note: while Sentry Air Systems has tested these products on their hoods and found that they do create an anti-static shield, SAS does not guarantee the performance of either product)
This portable clean room also creates a perfect environment for tissue culture work. The HEPA filter in the fan/filter assembly effectively filters out dust mites, molds, bacteria, and viruses to create a sterile environment for the culture of many types of living tissues. The sterile environment makes research on these tissues more complete and effective.
