Clean Room Information
Clean rooms are used in situations where an environmental variable such as temperature, humidity, airborne contaminates and even light can prove detrimental to the manufacturing and repair of sensitive electronic components.
Constructed to the highest standards, a clean room is perfectly sealed to prevent migration of contaminants such as volatiles from adhesives and particulate matter. High-end filtration systems and air management equipment creates positive air pressure inside the chamber to further guard against potential pollution of highly sensitive media.
Clean rooms are an essential facility in the data recovery industry because of the close tolerance mechanisms found inside storage media. The diagram shows relative proportions of these tolerances.
Classifications are standardised classes based on airborne particle counts. For example, a class 100 clean room is allowed 750 particles per cubic foot that measure 0.2 µm, 300 at 0.3 µm and so on. Of course constant monitoring and maintenance of the environment is an essential requirement in the maintenance of effective clean room technology.
Data Detect's in-house clean room environments meet, and
exceed, standard requirements for all hard drive procedures.
Data Detect conforms to the Class 100 certification, thus
meeting the U.S. Federal standard.
