There is a lot to consider when you are bringing in a new glove into your critical environment. You have to worry about the cost, comfort, cleanliness, chemical compatibility, and construction of the consumable. These are better know as the "5 c's of glove selection". This week Greg will go over the 5 c's and how to use them to help you make your glove selection.
*There is also a free download at the bottom to help you remember the 5 C's in the future.
A few month ago we began construction on our new cleanroom. We have been faced with challenges, delays and difficult decisions but we are getting very excited with the result. This week we will walk through the challenges, the details and the advice we received along the way.
There are certain things that are ok to mismatch, for example, your socks. But there are also things that should never be mismatched, like your dinner settings or cleanroom consumables. When you take the risk of pairing mismatched consumables in your cleanroom you are running the risk of introducing avoidable contamination to your critical environement. To learn more about why you do not want to mismatch your consumables, watch the video below!
Having the right solvent in your critical environment is very important, but even more important is having the correct solvent dispenser. If you are using the wrong solvent dispenser in your environment you could be introducing the chemicals to your operators, as well as being wasteful. Not only do you need to worry about the chemical exposure, the bottle might not be strong enough to handle the chemical. Not all solvent dispensers are made of a plastic that is strong enough to hold chemicals. If you get one that isn't strong enough, it could disolve and mix with the solvent contaminating the process.
