Safety standards in the field of designing clean rooms:

Beyond each and every industry’s regulatory requirements for clean rooms, over recent years there have been changes in the requirements and in the supervision of safety in clean rooms and in clean production facilities by the following agencies:

The Fire Authority, the Ministry of Health, the Environment Ministry, the local council, the town planning committee, the water supplier, the Ministry of Labor, and sometimes even the Ministry of Agriculture.

It is within the power of these regulatory agencies to stop the activities of any company that does not comply with the standards and procedures even when sometimes it contradicts what is customary in the clean rooms market.

Beyond the standards required in clean rooms such as standards for cleanliness, temperature, humidity, pressure differentials, etc., there are additional standards that must be considered for clean rooms.

There are standards that are not specific standards for clean rooms but these standards contain clauses or requirements that must be complied with in clean rooms such as Israel Standard 1220 which includes a special section relating to clean rooms, Standard 1001, etc.

Therefore, every clean room must have its own integral and designated fire sensor that complies with the standards including a test and approval specifically by the Standards Institute and a test of its operational effectiveness starting from the design stage depending upon the level of pressures and air transfers within each clean room itself. Israel Standard 1001 does not relate specifically to clean rooms, but it has significant consequences on the filtration and air conditioning system in clean rooms. For example, if the filtration system using FFU filters that in the past could be installed within the plenum, the filters will freely remove air that had flowed into the clean rooms not through designated air ducts, a system that does not comply with today’s standards. 

Therefore, before designing clean rooms, a prior design is required including a preliminary approval of the drawings by the relevant agencies and a multi-system consideration for the building’s systems as clean rooms are part of the building’s systems and must be integrated within them according to the standards.

As for most of the projects that Rotem Technologies undertakes, clean rooms are just part of the entire project, we are in possession of a vast amount of knowhow and experience accumulated over the years in combining clean room systems and complying with the relevant standards associated with connecting them to all the building’s systems. This includes project management and setting it up while complying accurately with the requirements and conducting all of the tests required including tests by the relevant laboratories such as the Standards Institute.
