Air Rate Testing and Validation of Air Change Rates are essential when undertaking the construction and maintenance of a clean room. Comfort Services Group have over 16 years’ experience in the setting up and validation of clean room air systems and pressure cascades. Our qualified and experienced engineers have carried out Air Rate Testing and Validation within a wide range of commercial environments including hospitals, biological labs and pharmaceutical institutions. The purpose of our testing and validation service is to ensure that the air system within a clean room is operating to its’ intended specification and is in line with all legal and regulatory requirements.
Regular testing of Air Rates ensures that a clean room remains fit for purpose and conforms to regulatory requirements. It is accepted that the 'cleaner’ a clean room is required to be, the more air is required and therefore the greater the air change rate. In order to prevent cross contamination it is essential that air systems can be relied upon to provide the required number of air-changes-per-hour. The minimum expectation for any healthcare application is 20 Changes Per Hour but this can vary immensely with some micro-biological facilities using systems that provide over 800 Changes Per Hour. Our Air Change Rate testing and validation ensures that these ‘per hour’ rates are adhered to and remain in accordance with the original design brief. At Comfort Services Group, we can provide validation data and certificates as part of our Air Rate Testing and Validation services.
In addition to Air Rates, at Comfort Services Group we can also assist in carrying out Air Tightness Testing. Otherwise known as Room Leakage testing, Air Tightness testing allows us to monitor and report on the integrity of a rooms construction. Air tightness testing is carried out with a view to identifying where unfiltered air may be entering a clean room and, therefore, compromising the intended protection against micro particles and cross contamination. Our qualified engineers will carry out thorough Air Tightness testing on mechanical ventilation systems as well as physical joints such as door seals to identify any areas for improvement to bring the facility in line with the required specification.
