Learn More About the Additional Requirements for a Data Recovery Clean Room

The clean room’s shell enclosure separates the clean air from the entire building by ventilating filtered air to prevent contamination. To guard against leakages in the system, the filter fan helps recirculate about 96% of the total air volume within the shell, ensuring high flexibility within the technology. 

Clean rooms must be controlled and monitored from construction to operation. Extensive measuring and testing periodically help ensure the clean room runs efficiently. Operators must wear body suits, gloves, head coverings, and masks. To learn more about our clean rooms, call our team at 866-786-5700.

Clean Room FAQs

A clean room utilizes controlled temperature and humidity as a protective mechanism against contamination of equipment. Features of a clean room typically include plastic ceilings and walls, external lighting, and a continuous influx of clean and dust-free air. Daily cleaning is required to prevent possible contamination in the given workspace.

Clean room technology is crucial for performing standard recovery procedures. For example, a damaged hard drive or disk requires clean room recovery to preserve the media. Without a cleanroom, a hard disk’s platters will become contaminated, resulting in the heads catching on foreign particles, scratching the surface, and permanently losing data on the device.

Clean room design features adhere to strict controls for environmental conditions to ensure consistent air quality and a low particle count. Clean room classifications are used to determine effectiveness for preventing possible potential particle contamination. The equipment utilized in a clean room environment depends upon the level of cleanliness required. As a lab with a certified Class 10 or ISO Level 4, our clean room environment is held according to federal standards (209E) to recover mechanically damaged hard disks. A clean environment is required to recover internally damaged hard disks.

The class number refers to the maximum number of airborne particles greater than or equal to one-half of a micron that would be allowed in one cubic foot of clean environment air. Therefore, a Class 100 clean room would not contain more than 100 particles bigger than half a micron in a cubic foot of air.

For data recovery purposes, a Class 100 clean room is all that is required. Flashback Data has gone above and beyond the norm to give the best service possible and installed a Class 10 workstation in its data recovery lab.

Flashback Data sustains ISO certifications and audits, as our cleanroom is always fully functioning and operational. Our dedication to excellence across our industry makes Flashback Data your number one choice for data recovery services.
