Reusable vs. Disposable Cleanroom Garment Video Identifies Reusable Outperforms Disposable
Prudential Cleanroom Services, a world leader in cleanroom laundry service systems, today announced the Company has released a video that identifies reusable cleanroom garments outperform disposable cleanroom garments. The video information uses scientific test methods conducted by an independent laboratory.
Larry Ranta, President & Lab Director at CPC Laboratories, Inc. in Mission Viejo, CA explains, "This video examines the controversy of whether laundered reusable cleanroom garments or disposable cleanroom garments are a better barrier to particles. Prudential Cleanroom Services contracted with CPC Laboratories, Inc. to perform the Particle Dispersion Test (aka Body Box Test) described in the IEST standard. One reusable garment system and two disposable garment systems were tested for particle dispersion. Results showed that the reusable garment system dispersed 50% less particles than the disposable garment system during use in the cleanroom."
The video also explains, through animation, how this particle dispersion occurs. Other considerations favoring reusable garments include comfort, breathability and sustainability.
