Air Shower

Why use air showers

Air showers are used to rid people of dust or other particles (decontamination) that are present on them using high-speed air blowing. These devices are used for personnel access to sensitive areas, called cleanrooms or dust controlled areas (DCAs) in various industries:

  • Automotive for painting units
  • Electronics
  • Optics
  • Agri-food
  • Pharmacy
  • Cosmetics
  • Industrial paint installation

The staff wear an antistatic suit in a changing room or airlock located at the entrance of the air shower. As soon as they enter the air shower, the blower is switched on automatically. Both doors are locked during the blowing process.

At the end of the process, the exit door is unlocked, and the staff can access the cleanroom. When exiting the cleanroom, the personnel passes through the air shower again, with or without ventilation. Both doors cannot be opened at the same time.
