The only available location for this facility was on the second floor of an existing office block which was connected by a bridge to the main works. Very shallow ducts within a small ceiling void had to be fitted to allow the 3m x 1.8m polycarbonate sheets to be moved around the area by special crane unit.
The major air handling plant and condensers were installed on the office block roof and supply and return ducts were fitted down both sides of the building so that each side of the clean room could be supplied separately.
Antistatic epoxy flooring was installed and the main areas enclosed in melamine faced composite panels. Special product entry flaps allow the rail system to carry sheets into different process areas and interlocked personnel air locks were fitted with automatic air showers linked to the main room supplies.
The facility was commissioned on time and fully meets operating standards.
