    Green Cleanrooms – the energy-efficient cleanroom systems CleanCell4.0®, CleanMediCell® and CleanSteriCell®

    In our cleanroom systems in the CleanCell series, we took a close look at the overall energy costs of the system. Thanks to the interplay of innovative air circulation systems, a high level of tightness and low-maintenance components, the energy requirements of SCHILLING ENGINEERING systems are lower than those of comparable cleanroom systems. Energy costs are significantly reduced, and the environment is protected.

    High level of tightness
    The tightness of a cleanroom is essential for a safe, functional system. At the same time, it saves energy almost as an afterthought. If no particles penetrate into the cleanroom, the rate of air exchange can be significantly lower. If less air escapes to the outside, the pressure compensation required is significantly lower, and the temperature and humidity in the room can also be kept at the configured level for a longer time, reducing heating and cooling costs.
    CleanCell cleanroom systems ensure tightness using an innovative technical solution:
    A patented sealing-clip system is used to join the wall and ceiling modules together absolutely perfectly, automatically sealing them as well.

    Energy-efficient air circulation systems
    The greatest portion of the energy consumption of a cleanroom results from the necessity of ongoing air exchange. Filtered air is guided into the cleanroom, displacing particle-heavy air and guiding it out of the cleanroom. The air circulation technology needed to achieve this goal is the core of every SCHILLING ENGINEERING cleanroom system. Air is guided out of the cleanroom in a permanent circulation through the wall modules and into the filter systems, then back through the ceiling plenum into the cleanroom. This reuse of the already-cooled, only partially contaminated air in the cleanroom saves the majority of the energy costs normally required for the humidification and cooling of air newly drawn in from outside. Due to the lower particle burden of the reused air, moreover, the filters are under less stress and the air exchange rate can also be reduced.

    Heat recovery

    The state-of-the-art clean room system is now equipped with integrated heat recovery for an additional drastic reduction in energy consumption.

    Frugal laminar flow modules
    The CleanCell systems exclusively use ULPA high-performance filters, which work very energy-efficiently at an impressively low failure and maintenance rate.

     LED lighting
    Cleanroom-appropriate LED lamps can save a lot of energy over the long term. They are cost-effective to use and have a much longer service life than conventional lamps. When lighting is being replaced, a cleanroom system must be turned off, then started back up. These costs are often not considered, but they do argue for the use of lighting with a longer service life.

    Flexible, accurate control and monitoring
    Another energy savings potential lies in the accurate, coordinated configuration of all the components of the cleanroom. With the SCHILLING CleanRoomControlSystem CR Control® control system, all settings are configured at a central point, including the air conditioning systems. This prevents energy-intensive losses due to a lack of coordination. Clear warnings, such as a door that has remained open too long, permit quick action and prevent unnecessary energy losses. Timely, flexible intervention is also supported by an app that provides monitoring and control through tablets or smartphones, entirely independent of location.
