A cleanroom is a controlled environment that is designed to minimize the introduction, generation, and retention of airborne particles and contaminants. These contaminants can include dust, microorganisms, chemical vapors, and other particulate matter. Cleanrooms are commonly used in manufacturing, research, and other industries where strict environmental controls are necessary.

Cleanrooms are typically classified based on the number and size of particles per unit volume of air. The classification system used depends on the industry and application, but some common classification systems include ISO (International Organization for Standardization) and Federal Standard 209E. These standards define the allowable particle count and size for each classification level.

Cleanrooms are designed with specific air handling systems that filter the air, maintain positive air pressure, and control temperature and humidity. They also typically have smooth, non-porous surfaces that are easy to clean and maintain. Cleanroom workers wear specialized clothing, such as gowns, hoods, gloves, and face masks, to prevent the introduction of particles from their bodies into the cleanroom environment.

Cleanrooms are critical in industries such as semiconductor manufacturing, pharmaceutical production, and medical device manufacturing, where even small particles or contaminants can negatively impact product quality and performance.
