THE PRECISION OF clean room construction and installation
We are experts in manufacturing and installation of HVAC components for clean room environments.
EXPERTISE IN CLEAN ROOM AIR PRINCIPLES AND PROTOCOLS
When we think of clean rooms we typically are thinking of semiconductor facilities. Arctic has, since the 1990s, performed literally thousands of clean room projects. The vast majority of these have been for semiconductor clients, but many have been related to laboratory, medical and biopharma markets as well. The strict requirements for cleanliness in the installation and performance of HVAC systems are key factors in constructing clean air environments and Arctic personnel have the know-how to support these types of projects.
Arctic is one of the few HVAC ductwork manufacturers to operate a classified cleanroom just for the purpose of final cleaning of fabricated ductwork and specialty items prior to installation in clean rooms for semiconductor and biopharma clients, where extensive protocols are in place for the quality control of products and the protection of consumers of their products. We have experience in supporting the requirements of FDA Good Manufacturing Practice installation guidelines and Quality Assurance.
“TO SEMICONDUCTOR CLIENTS, NORMAL AIR LOOKS LIKE A TORNADO OF DEBRIS — IT HAs to BE RELIABLY FILTERED AND CONTROLLED.”

CLEANROOMS ARE JUST ONE COMPONENT OF AIR SYSTEM PERFORMANCE IN A MANUFACTURING SETTING
Coupled with air filtration, manufacturers rely on numerous other systems to control and manage their air quality and process environments — process exhaust, air scrubbers, makeup air systems, fume and odor control. All of these systems must be properly installed, tested, and work in concert with each other to properly maintain the air environment, protect building occupants, the community, and control the manufacturing process.
