Cleanroomshop drilling into the cleanroom maintenance market

Nemo Power Tools has partnered with Cleanroomshop to market its sealed Cleanroom Drill/Driver

Creator of the world's first submersible drill, Nemo Power Tools, has partnered with Cleanroomshop to market its sealed Cleanroom Drill/Driver.

The tool uses technology from Nemo's submersibles which were developed for the subsea market and are used by organisations including NASA and the US Navy.

The cordless drill/driver, currently used by Pfizer and other pharmaceutical companies, offers cleanroom, medical lab, and pharmaceutical professionals a completely sealed and sterilisable drill.

Regular power tools contain air vents, which allow air to pass over the tool’s internal components to cool the machine. Nemo Power Tools devised a technology that allows tools to be 100% sealed from the outside environment, which means no particle dispersal, allowing it to be used in clean rooms and other particle-free environments.

Using a tool that's suited to sensitive environments translates into more efficient work, particularly in the plastics and manufacturing sectors, as well as with sophisticated electronics manufacturing and other types of cleanrooms. Repairs can take place without compromising the room’s air quality or its clean room status.

Due to its sealed design and construction, the drill/driver has extremely low particle generation. An airborne particle count statistical analysis conducted by an independent third-party laboratory found that the Nemo Clean Room Drill meets the particulate requirements of an ISO Class 7 cleanroom at 0.5, 1.0 and 5.0 micrometer under operational conditions (based on the data collected and statistical analysis calculations derived from ISO 14644-1).

The unit is made from aluminium and its non-porous surface is specially-treated which means it can be sterilised, washed and cleaned with water, alcohol, various solvents and standard sterilisation solutions, as well as being submersible up to 5 meters. This drill comes with a durable carrying case.

The Nemo Cleanroom Drill/Driver is available from stock at Cleanroomshop, with next day delivery and global shipping options.
