Do temperature and humidity requirements affect the way a cleanroom is designed?
Answered By: Tim Loughran
If you’re going to build a cleanroom that needs to maintain a specific temperature requirement, but the outside environment around it is at a higher temperature (for example if you’re putting a cleanroom in an open warehouse that has no temperature or humidity control), the cleanroom envelope has to withstand the difference. So you need an R-value in the wall to ensure the heat doesn’t transfer through. You also need a structure that will stop moisture from transferring.
