Air Showers :

CleanZones, LLC offers our Air Showers in different design configurations and materials of construction to meet your exact requirements. Air Showers are designed to remove surface contamination from personnel prior to entering a Cleanroom or Clean Work Area such as a Paint Spray Booth. Numerous contaminants can be introduced into a clean room environment by being transported on the outer garments of an individual entering a clean room, and for that reason, many clean rooms will feature a personnel, equipment or product air shower. An air shower is a self-contained unit that utilizes specialized, high efficiency air flow and other technologies to effectively remove all types of contaminants from the every individual. All of our Air Showers feature Hi-Flow V-Bank HEPA or ULPA Filters, recessed lights, Interlocking doors, and PLC Programmable Logic Controller and Emergency Stop buttons.

We offer different types of Air Showers, S Series (Straight Thru Passage), L Series (Right Angle Passage) and T Series (3-door passage). These units are also available in a Low-profile where the motor blower and HEPA Module are alongside the base unit instead of on top of the base. Units can be coupled together to create a Tunnel configuration for passage of large groups of personnel. Choose the correct type for your application or call and speak to one of our experienced sales engineers for assistance.
