OraSure Technologies – Dry Clean Room

PROJECT TYPE: Design Build

The goal of this project was to design and build a system for a pharmaceutical dry clean room space that required components to maintain critical temperatures and humidity control to store fluid specimens. The Clean room HVAC system was a custom-built desiccant dehumidification unit built by the Munters Corporation. The Clean Room space required a high rate of air changes per hour in the room and all supply air was delivered into the room through laminar flow ceiling diffusers with HEPA filters. Return air registers were installed low on the walls around the room to ensure total room cleanliness. A large electric duct heater was installed to provide reheat capability to maintain the critical space temperature of 68F +/-5. A DDC temperature control system was engineered and installed to control all the various equipment and components to maintain the Clean Room space critical temperature and humidity requirements.
