Contamination Control in High Purity Manufacturing

27th June 2016

 

Overview

Particulate, chemical and microbial contamination is widely recognized as a key factor that affects process yield and product reliability in diverse industries, such as microelectronics, data storage, aerospace, pharmaceutical, biomedical devices, automotive, food processing, and nano-materials synthesis. The control of microorganisms is especially critical in the medical device, pharmaceutical and food industries. There are many potential sources of contamination in a cleanroom process– facilities, chemicals, workstations, process, garments, consumables, people, etc. The relative magnitudes of these sources vary from process to process, and must be quantified and prioritized via a Pareto chart. Contamination control is a multi-disciplinary skill which is not taught in classrooms, but is an expertise acquired primarily through on-the-job learning. This 2-day course, with a special focus on microbial control, is intended to supplement such learning by practice.

 

Who Should Attend

Engineers and managers in the areas of:

  • Contamination control & cleaning
  • Chemical integration
  • Yield Improvement
  • Reliability Engineering
  • Failure Analysis
  • Process Development
  • Process Engineering
  • Product Development
  • Product Engineering
  • Quality Control & Optimization
  • Process Control
  • Analysis & metrology
  • Audits & education

In addition, manufacturing personnel (operators, supervisors) working in contamination-controlled environments (e.g. cleanrooms) will benefit as well.

Key Learning Points Include

  • Identify sources of chemical and particulate contamination, and their effects
  • Develop familiarity with use of laboratory and in-line instruments to quantify contaminants
  • Understand the fundamentals of contamination generation, transport, deposition and adhesion on exposed surfaces
  • Comprehend the operating principles underlying surface cleaning methods, such as power ultrasound, megasonics, and dry methods such as CO2 snow
  • Appreciate the basics of cleanroom and tooling design to minimize contamination
  • Quantify the contribution of these and other sources (such as consumables, chemicals, etc) to the overall contamination  loading in a cleanroom environment
  • Audit cleanroom processes for contamination sources, and document findings for appropriate corrective actions
