Products required to meet more stringent requirements for cleanliness and particle concentration under ISO 14644-1 have to be produced in a so-called “clean environment”. CENTILLION has a controlled environment set up on modern production premises covering an area of 800 square metres. They have been designed as a "room in a room" and have been certified under ISO14644-1.
The production cleanroom facilities are divided into two functional areas:
- ECA1, with cleanliness classed as ISO Class 6 (US1000), microbiological control: for the production of medical electronic components and active implantable medical devices;
- ECA2, with cleanliness classed as ISO Class 6 (US1000): for the production of industrial products, video surveillance systems
Within the controlled environments there is a so-called "laminar airflow" – an air stream that passes over the workstations and makes sure that the ISO cleanliness class 6 required under ISO 14644-1 is achieved. In addition to that, the workstations in area ECA1 undergo microbiological control tests. The integrated control system carries out continuous 24-hour monitoring and records the parameters of the work environment – temperature, humidity and differential pressure within the cleanroom. The level of cleanliness is checked by an external audit company that carries out recertification audits at regular intervals.
