Clean Room CFD Analysis

Client: Confidential Customer, UK

The Brief

Our confidential client wanted to understand the impact of a proposed extension in relation to air flows in a Clean Room environment used for sterile manufacturing.

The Challenges

The existing clean room had been in existence for many years and gaps in the original documentation, HVAC specifications meant that a wider analysis of the potential impact of the proposed changes to the facility were required. Due to the nature of the process operations, air distribution and change rates were critical.

The Response

BPE developed a series of design documents and specifications and undertook Computational Fluid Dynamics modelling to assess the impact of the proposed changes. Measurements of air flows/velocities in the existing clean room were used to support the CFD modelling.

The Results

BPE completed the required analysis and issued a report with recommendations on suitability of the existing HVAC System for the proposed extension. This provided a secure basis for project funding and decision making.
