Clean Room Explained
Typically used in manufacturing or scientic
research, a clean room is a controlled
environment that has a low level of pollutants
such as dust, airborne microbes, aerosol
particles, and chemical vapours.
To be exact, a clean room has a controlled level
of contamination that is specied by the
number of particles per cubic meter at a
specied particle size.
