How do cleanroom temperature and humidity affect cost?
Answered By: Tim Loughran
One of the things to be careful of in respect to cleanroom temperature and humidity control, is specifying them at too low or too tight of a tolerance. That translates again into the cost of construction and the cost of operating your clean room.
As an example, humidity is relative - It’s relative to the temperature it’s at. If you were to set your temperature at 70 degrees and 50% relative humidity, at 68 degrees that would be 55% relative humidity. So the difference of those 2 degrees would translate into having to dry that air to get it to a lower moisture content, and that costs significant money.
