Cleaning Technology

About us

The group of cleaning technology was established in 1990. We have been dealing with versatile problems related to contamination control in manufacturing processes of semiconductors, LCD, and pharmaceutical products. We will expand the targets of contamination control into the fields of precision machines and foods as well as cleaning technologies for home appliances.

Present status and Prospect in Clean Technology

1) Clean technologies for safe, secure and comfortable lives
2) Control technology and measurement methods for submicron particles
3) Removal of coarse aerosol particles with diameter larger than 1μm
4) Survey on the necessity of HEPA filters for indoor ventilation to remove PM2.5
5) Control of clean room environment (control of air flow distribution, simulation technology and design of ceiling-less clean room)
6) On-line and off-line measurement of sub-micron particles and chemical species
7) Establishment of mini-environment and clean system in semiconductor industries (measurement technologies for nanoparticles and prevention of electrostatics)
8) Microbial contamination control technology (cGMP, PIC/S, HACCP and in situ measurement of microbiology)
9) Development of environmentally friendly technologies for energy saving and reduction of CO2
10) Clean technology for quality control and safety for GMP validation and HACCP in the pharmaceutical and food industries
11) Revision and development of ISO standards in ISO/TC209 and TC142 for clean room and air filters
12) Survey of submicron size oil mist contaminations in workspaces generated from cutting machines
