Requirement

A leading composites company had secured a contract to develop and supply special polycarbonate cockpit canopies for front-line American fighters. A completely new class 10,000 facility was required in the shortest time possible with many unique features relating to working with high strength polycarbonate.


Close temperature and humidity control is essential, even though large ovens at 160ºC, to flatten and form the sheets, open into the clean room and a massive autoclave unit is also part of the process equipment.

Solution

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 personnal 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.

Comments

Many special features due to the new processes and site restrictions are incorporated into the design. We were able to fit essential cleanroom features around the special materials handling and environmental needs without dramatic specials costs. The plant position and ductwork design is an excellent demonstration of how to fit a facility to an available area.

Other specialist Clean Rooms have been installed on this site over several years and we are continuing to supply new and modified units.
