An international leader in filtration and separation has installed an advanced clean room at its plant in Maine, USA
Porvair Filtration Group recently completed an extension of its Caribou facility, doubling the size of its manufacturing and office space and improving its existing building.
The company has now invested in a state-of-the-art clean room to ensure its products for the microelectronic and semiconductor markets are free from contamination. The class 100 clean room will help reduce particulate contamination and regulate environmental parameters such as temperature, humidity and pressure.
The clean room is part of Porvair’s strategy to extend manufacturing capacity for industries that demand high purity products, including High Purity Point of Use Filters, Gasket Filters, Flow Restrictors and Diffusers
“We are great believers that investment in our infrastructure, as well as our people, will ensure Porvair has the capability to remain at the forefront of the industry,” said Kevin Nelson, President of Porvair in the USA.
“Installing this kind of cutting-edge technology, which all but eliminates contamination, demonstrates to our customers that we are committed to driving further innovations in technology and capabilities that offer leading, cost-effective design solutions.”
Porvair designs and manufactures high quality, cost-effective filters for all stages of the purification or separation process, as well as OEM Products for the Analytical Instrument and the Process Instrument Markets.
The Caribou site now includes a modern, two-storey building which is integrated with the existing structure through a connector building. As part of a sustainability drive, energy efficient lighting and insulation has been installed. These improvements provide a high quality workspace for employees, and reduce energy consumption by driving down heating and lighting costs.
Nelson added: “It is hugely important to Porvair that we remain dedicated to investment into ground-breaking technology and exemplary customer service. This will strengthen our ability to meet the growing demands of customers across a range of industrial sectors.”
Porvair Filtration Group – which has supplied the aerospace, nuclear, energy, process and bioscience industries with performance-driven filtration equipment for almost 30 years – manufactures in both the USA and UK and has an extensive network of sales offices and distribution channels throughout the world.
