Clean Rooms
19 Mar 2018







​The Department has a clean assembly area that is routinely qualified to Class 1000 and utilises both horizontal and vertical air flows to maintain room cleanliness. One end of the cleanroom is given over to a wall-to-wall laminar flow bench qualified to Class 100. The room is swept by the air passing through the HEPA filters of the flow bench, while ceiling-mounted HEPA filter/fan units provide additional protection to test facilities located in the four equipment bays. The long laminar flow bench provides a large and convenient work area for the integration of space hardware and cable assemblies, with all movement of personnel occurring downstream from the work activity.​
