An air shower, also known as an air shower and personal cleaning booth, allows safe as well as effective cleaning of work clothes. Neither the employees nor the working environment are exposed to higher levels of particle contamination.

We offer various models of air showers. Depending on the model, different types of steel are used:

  • Lacquered Painted steel
  • AISI 304 rust free stainless steel
  • AISI 316 rust free stainless steel

The fan unit operates at a high flow rate and air distribution occurs through high-performance nozzles. The systems use HEPA filters and offer an automatic cleaning cycle.

With a programmable logic controller, also known as a PLC, and the attached touch screen display, which serves as the interface between the program and the human, the operation of the air shower can be individually adjusted.

Air shower - protects your production facilities from contaminating particles

Particles in the air can disrupt the production workflow or destroy the whole product in various production areas. That’s why it is necessary to create special clean rooms for such processes. With the help of certain techniques, particle contamination can be kept low in such environments. Without the right precautions, people use these clean rooms bring the particles with them on their clothing, thus contaminating the production area. An air shower for people, acts as a personal Air Lock and effectively removes dust particles from work clothes, preventing them from entering in the production areas.

What is an air shower?

An air shower is a cabin in which an air stream is used to remove particles and dust from the clothing of incoming or outgoing personnel from a cleanroom. The usage of the air shower hinders the transfer of majority of particles into the environment. 

Employees can enter the cabin in full clothing. The work wear or protective equipment is then cleaned of visible dust, fibers and soiling as well as invisible particles within a short time. The removed particles are immediately vacuumed out of the cabin.

How does an air shower work?

The airlock or the cabin is used when someone entered. The door closes air-tight to prevent escaping or entering of particles in the booth during the process. Particle-free air flows through special nozzles at very high speed (20 - 25 m/s) from top to bottom through the booth and the clothing. The air stream shakes the clothing and the particles are separated. The air stream directs the particles over a grid in the floor to a filter system.

After each use, an automatic cleaning cycle is performed before the booth is used again.

Areas where air showers can be used?

Air showers are used in various industries. Everywhere where particles would hinder the processes or contaminate the product.

In some industries, air showers are part of common process operations:

  • Microelectronics
  • Medical Technology
  • Pharmaceutical industry
  • Food industry
  • Chemical industry
  • Biotechnology
