Cleanroom Laundries_

Cleanroom laundries are essential for maintaining the highest levels of hygiene in a variety of industries, including healthcare, pharmaceutical, and food production. These laundries use specialised equipment and procedures to ensure that all garments and linens are cleaned and disinfected to the highest standards.

Cleanroom Laundry

Hygiene measures for cleanroom laundries:

  • Strict personnel protocols: Only authorized personnel are allowed to enter the cleanroom laundry area, and they must wear appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE).
  • Separated processing areas: The cleanroom laundry is typically divided into three separate areas: dirty, clean, and sterile. This helps to prevent cross-contamination between garments and linens.
  • High-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filtration: HEPA filters are used to remove particles from the air, helping to create a clean and sterile environment. This also applies to laundry equipment like washers and dryers.
  • Use of disinfectants: Disinfectants are used to kill bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms on garments and linens.
  • Regular monitoring: The cleanroom laundry is regularly monitored to ensure that it is meeting all hygiene standards. Telemetry and IoT play an important role in this respect.

By implementing these high hygiene measures, cleanroom laundries help to protect the health and safety of workers and patients. They also help to ensure that the products that are produced in cleanrooms are free of contamination.

As far as cleanrooms are concerned, there is legislation that must be followed. The legislation varies from country to country. However, there are some common standards that are used internationally. We highly recommend learning about them before you start the project.

yishiwashing has been producing machinery specifically designed for cleanrooms for long, following all hygiene standards.

  • The range of barrier washers for cleanrooms (16 to 100kg) are the most suitable not only to prevent cross contamination, but also to offer the specific cleanroom accessories like stainless steel AISI 316L drum, titration valve, syphon, etc.
  • Both washer and tumble dryer offer the option of HEPA air filters type 13 and 14, to be chosen depending on the needs of each cleanroom.
  • TOUCH II microprocessor technology with yishiwashing Connect connectivity provides remote control of the machinery and cleanroom, enabling constant monitoring and ensuring the required traceability.

Our experience in cleanroom machinery gives us the security of being able to advise our customers on the best option in terms of machine models and options, as well as cleanroom design.

Some tips to design a cleanroom:

  • Consider the size and shape of the cleanroom: The size and shape of the cleanroom will affect the airflow pattern and the efficiency of the HVAC system. (The HVAC system in a cleanroom is designed to maintain a controlled environment with low levels of particulates and humidity. The air is filtered through HEPA filters to remove particles, and the temperature and humidity are kept within a narrow range.)
  • Locate the cleanroom in a clean area: The cleanroom should be located in an area that is free from dust, dirt, and other contaminants.
  • Consider the use a modular cleanroom system: Modular cleanroom systems are easy to install and can be scaled up or down as needed.
  • Regularly inspect and maintain the cleanroom: The cleanroom should be regularly inspected and maintained to ensure that it is meeting all hygiene standards.

Hygiene standards in a cleanroom laundry:

Here are some additional tips for maintaining high hygiene standards in a cleanroom laundry:

  • Use a dedicated laundry cart to transport garments and linens between the different processing areas.
  • Label all garments and linens with their respective processing status.
  • Inspect garments and linens carefully before and after they are processed.
  • Dispose of contaminated garments and linens properly.

By following these tips, you can help to ensure that your cleanroom laundry is operating at the highest level of hygiene.
