ISO7 LCD Technology Research Facility
Sharp Laboratories – research and development arm of the Sharp Corporation, best known for technological innovation in displays and light-emitting devices.
This new facility was built in an existing building. The room fabric consisted of a metal cleanroom partition system, antistatic vinyl floor, metal pan suspended ceiling, with a fully equipped changing room.
The facility was designed as class 7 turbulent flow with localised class 5 laminar flow canopies and wet benches. The chemical process benches were for acid and solvent based chemical processing. The solvent benches were stainless steel, with a fire detection and suppression system. The acid benches were polypropylene.
Services included a full complement of specialist gases and gas cabinets, which were installed using orbital welding. The project included DI water pipework as well as small power and data fitted in dado trunking.
Air conditioning comprised an air handling unit, chiller, chilled water pipework, humidifiers and controls to achieve the design close control criteria. Extract fans were mounted at roof level.
The project was completed on time and on budget. Mike Cherril, Facilities Manager for Sharp, said: “We chose Cleanroom Solutions because of their work for us in the past and they delivered another excellent facility.”
