AAF (American Air Filter) the world’s largest air filtration solution provider has wide range of cleanroom air filtration products and systems including High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA), Ultra Low Penetration Air (ULPA) and PolyTetraFluoroEthylene (PTFE) membrane filters with a variety of efficiencies from 99.95% to 99.999995% at MPPS (Most Penetrating Particle Size).
A cleanroom is a contamination-controlled environment designed for specialized industrial production or scientific research. Specifically, the pharmaceutical industry follows strict requirements on air purity levels for aseptically prepared parenteral medicine, such as injectables and other formulations.
Contamination during manufacturing may lead to severe harm or life-threatening health risks to the patient. Anything that could come into direct contact with a pharmaceutical product is a potential risk of contamination. Hence, the quality of HEPA filter directly affects process performance and output. Therefore, it is very important to select the right product for the desired cleanliness.
Industries like pharmaceutical labs, biotech labs, food & beverage facilities, microelectronics facilities, semiconductor facilities, optical labs are regulated to maintain these cleanliness levels for a foolproof product.
AAF pioneered many of the techniques and products used in cleanroom operations & processes. It recommends MEGAcel II – an ultra-high efficiency and ultra-low resistance ePTFE membrane HEPA/ULPA filter for cleanrooms. MEGAcel II and ePTFE media are manufactured, tested, and packaged in ISO 7 clean facilities to ensure the highest purity, quality and consistency. The company understands the critical nature of contamination-controlled environments and has played an active role in establishing new standards for cleanroom applications.
