Why did we build an ISO 14644-1:1999 Class 6 Cleanroom? Because it was the right thing to do.
Providing our customers the highest quality product possible has always been the driving force behind everything we do at Baker White. An ISO 14644-1:1999 Class 6 Cleanroom provides environmental control of airborne particulate and bacteria contamination to levels appropriate for accomplishing pharmaceutical grade manufacturing.
Many in our industry feel that a food grade facility is appropriate for e-liquid manufacturing, we strongly disagree. We do not ingest e-liquids, we inhale them. Our ISO 14644-1:1999 Class 6 Cleanroom is 100 times cleaner than a Class 7, 10,000 times cleaner than a Class 8, and 100,000 times cleaner than a Class 9. Take a moment to think about that, and ask yourself: Where is my e-liquid being made?
ISO 14644 standards regulate the air purity and bacteria in a pharmaceutical manufacturing environment. Before a facility can be tested for certification, there are many things that have to be considered. Type of filtration units, intake and exhaust layouts, room pressurization, and many other factors can greatly alter the cleanliness of the cleanroom.
Our cleanroom is equipped with filters that operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to keep the air as clean as possible by trapping particles as small as .5 micrometers, also known as microns. The air is exchanged in the cleanroom once every sixty seconds with clean filtered air.
The process of establishing an ISO 14644-1:1999 Class 6 Cleanroom starts with the design and construction, continues with certification and is maintained through strict operational protocols and cleaning standards. Continued compliance and annual re-certification is necessary to maintain an ISO 14644-1:1999 Class 6 Cleanroom.
