Energy-Efficient Design of Cleanroom Recirculation Air Systems

December 21, 2017
1 p.m. – 2 p.m.
Eastern Standard Time


Throughout this presentation, cleanroom architects and engineers will learn how to design a sustainable recirculation system that uses minimal energy, meets space contamination criteria, maintains the required temperature and humidity conditions, and provides a quiet research environment. The presentation will also present performance data on multiple operating facilities to validate the design approaches.

After viewing this presentation, attendees will:

  • Understand and determine the energy performance metrics used to evaluate cleanroom energy performance.
  • Understand the relationship of air flow, static pressure, and component efficiency in the design of cleanroom recirculation systems.
  • Understand the relationship between fan speed, sound power, and system energy performance.
  • Understand the methods used during commissioning to validate cleanroom recirculation air system energy performance.
