Gerbig Engineering introduces damper system for modular cleanrooms


Can be used to adjust the positive pressure within the cleanroom

Gerbig Engineering, a US specialist in cleanroom design, fabrication, installation and validation is introducing a new damper system for use with the AireCell series of modular walls. Dampers can be used to adjust the positive pressure within the cleanroom, an improvement over adjusting fan speed for fixed area returns.

The dampers fit into AireCell extrusions with the standard 1/8in retainer. They are closed or opened from outside or inside the hardwall modular cleanroom.

Ken Lorello of Cleanroom Depot in New York, a distributor of Gerbig Engineering products, developed the damper.

“We believe this system gives our customers more flexibility in managing their cleanroom environment,” said Fred Gerbig, President of Gerbig Engineering. “Our company has a strong history of developing robust product offerings that support or enhance the use of cleanrooms.”
