Brentwood Nears Completion of Cleanroom Expansion
Brentwood Industries is in the final phase of expanding their ISO Class 8 cleanroom to their original cleanroom, from 8,500 sq. ft. The expansion, which began in May and is expected to be completed at the end of October 2010, will insure future capacity to serve growing medical clients and their needs. Concurrent with the expansion of the facility, additional state of the art equipment will be added.
Brentwood’s new cleanroom is a 26,000 sq ft facility comprised of 21,000 sq ft of controlled environment. The entire system contains over 200 filters to minimize particulate levels required for ISO class 8 environments and is controlled by a state-of-the-art monitoring system that collects and records the cleanroom’s temperature, pressure differentials and humidity values. All finished products transfer into a 3,600 sq ft quality inspection area that is integrated with the 12,600 sq ft of manufacturing space comprised of four Class 8 compartments capable of housing a total of eleven in-line thermoforming machines.
Brentwood’s reputation for precision in manufacturing rests on the mission that advanced quality planning occurs with all our customer’s products, so materials from carefully selected suppliers are used to complete a product that meets the customer’s requirements. Raw materials are segregated from the manufacturing area and pass through a static elimination and vacuum process to properly clean the film prior to entering the machine. In addition, all entrances and outlets utilize an automatic interlock system to prevent loss of pressurization and contamination from outside the controlled environment.
