Clean room ovens create a sterile environment for hygienic and sterile process applications in manufacturing. The pharmaceutical and medical industries take the lead in the need and request for these types of ovens. Clean room ovens, also known as dry-heat sterilizing ovens, are used to cure, dry, sterilize and depryrogenate.
Recently, JPW customized a clean room oven for a pharmaceutical pill manufacturer. They requested a dry-heat sterilizer for their specific project.
“Clean room ovens have different classifications,” states Mike Jameson with JPW Industrial Ovens and Furnaces. “The type we typically produce are Class 100 clean room environment ovens for processes where eliminating particle contamination is required. We also see more requests for these types of ovens than we have in the past.”
