Traveling Abroad as a Sex Offender

Traveling Abroad as a Sex Offender

Dallas, 10/31/2016 /SubmitPressRelease123/

Being a registered sex offender can have a lasting negative impact on many aspects of your life, including your career and your reputation. Now, a new federal law also requires registered sex offenders to include information about their status on their passport.

If you have been charged with any type of federal crime, it’s important to speak to a Texas federal criminal defense lawyer right away.

What the New Law Says

Signed by President Obama in February 2016, the new law is known as the International Megan’s Law. Under the new law, there are two types of registered sex offenders who are required to include a mark on their U.S. passport. If you have been convicted of a sex crime involving a minor, or you are required to register as a sex offender in any state or with the National Sex Offender Registry due to a conviction involving a sex offense with a minor, you must comply with the new statute. The identification must be a “visual designation affixed to a conspicuous location” on the passport. The law also prohibits any passport-issuing authority from giving a sex offender a passport unless the mark is included.

Restricted Travel  

Obviously, this new requirement could have an impact on a sex offender’s ability to travel overseas. The goal of the law is to prohibit registered sex offenders from traveling to other countries where so-called “sex tourism” is a thriving industry. According to a 2010 report released by the federal government, at least 4,500 registered sex offenders received passports in 2008. Without an identifying mark on their passport, officials in other countries are unlikely to know that these individuals had been convicted of a sex-related offense in the United States.

The law also establishes a database that allows U.S. officials to notify foreign countries when a registered sex offender is traveling abroad. Additionally, registered sex offenders must notify the appropriate authorities any time they plan to travel overseas.

Now, registered sex offenders may find it difficult to travel abroad, as some countries may deny a sex offender a visa when they attempt to cross the border or go through customs. The law also requires sex offenders to regularly update their information.

Discuss Your Case with a Texas Federal Criminal Defense Lawyer

If you have been charged with a sex-related crime, don’t wait to speak to a lawyer about your case. The consequences of a conviction can linger for years to come, affecting everything from your job and your relationships to where you live and when you can travel.

Texas Big Truck Wreck Accident Lawyers Explains Trucking Company Lawsuit

Texas Big Truck Wreck Accident Lawyers Explains Trucking Company Lawsuit

Dallas, 10/31/2016 /SubmitPressRelease123/

The Texas big truck accident lawyers of 1800 Truck Wreck report on a truck accident in Fort Worth that killed five and injured 12, where the family alleges that the commercial truck driver’s negligence caused the wreck.

The family of a woman who suffered serious injuries in a big truck accident in Fort Worth has filed suit against the driver of the truck and the trucking company itself.

The truck wreck – which killed five people and injured 12 – occurred at about 2:30 a.m. in the 3900 block of Interstate 30, near the Oakland Boulevard exit.

Police said that a BMW driven by 37-year-old Claudia Barraza hit a concrete barrier on the freeway near Oakland Boulevard.

Barraza pulled her vehicle to the right shoulder of the freeway, and several other vehicles stopped to render assistance.

Moments later, a Ryder commercial truck driven by Dustin Wayne Pool, barreled over a hill, lost control and plowed into the vehicles and the people who were standing outside their cars.

The truck then came to a stop and caught fire.

Barraza was killed in the accident, as were Veronica Gonzalez, 43, Clarissa Banda, Mary Hernandez, 42, and Steven Franklin, 45.

Pool suffered moderate injuries, and was taken to a local hospital.


In the aftermath of the accident, the family of Elyssa Alba, who suffered serious injuries in the wreck, and lost her fiancée Veronica Gonzalez, consulted with a big truck wreck accident lawyer and later filed suit against Pool and Ryder Integrated Logistics Inc.

“You have four lanes of traffic and several vehicles that were able to come to a complete stop and offer assistance to the driver of the BMW,” stated the big truck wreck accident attorney representing Alba. “A total of eight vehicles were hit by the tractor-trailer. That’s what I find the most troubling.”

Alba, who the lawyer described as being “in horrific condition,” suffered serious head injuries, fractures to her jaw and hip, and the amputation of one of her legs.

The lawsuit contends that Pool’s negligence included failure to control his speed, failure to turn to avoid a collision, and failure to keep a safe distance,.

These failures, the suit says, were major contributing factors to the big truck accident.

Furthermore, the suit accused Ryder of not providing the proper training to Pool, which would have helped him avoid the devastating accident.

The plaintiffs are seeking more than $1 million in damages, which the family’s lawyer said was appropriate, especially given the “mental anguish” Alba’s children have suffered since the accident.

“Texas rules require plaintiffs to plea for a minimum of damages,” the lawyer added. “The injuries are catastrophic, so we will seek far more than the minimum based on the facts that come to light.”

Ryder officials did not comment about the lawsuit, but the company did issue a statement through a spokesman, David Bruce.

“Ryder is deeply saddened by the injuries and loss of life resulting from the tragic multi-vehicle accident involving a Ryder vehicle and driver,” Bruce stated. “We are fully cooperating with officials investigating of this accident. With respect to a recently filed lawsuit related to this matter, we will address those claims as part of the litigation process.”

10 Common Causes of Commercial Truck Accidents

The lawsuit against Ryder is more evidence that commercial trucks still pose a danger to motorists, not just because they are bigger, longer and heavier than passenger vehicles, but also because any kind of driver inattention or driver error often results in far more devastating consequences.

“We’ve seen over and over that the reason we place higher safety standards on commercial truck drivers, is because they are driving vehicles that if not properly controlled, easily become weapons of destruction,” stated Amy Witherite, a Fort Worth lawyer at the big truck accident law firm of Eberstein & Witherite, which has offices in Houston, Dallas and Fort Worth, as well as Atlanta, Georgia. “The fact is, a truck wreck that is caused by a commercial driver is nearly always going to be more damaging in terms of injuries or fatalities, than a passenger vehicle accident.”

And that’s why it’s so important to identify some of the most common contributing factors to these commercial truck accidents, and how that knowledge can help lower the rate of wrecks.

Ironically, Ryder recently listed 10 major reasons that big truck accidents occur, in an effort to provide public information to help prevent more of these incidents:

  • Failure of truck driver to adhere to or obey the rules of the road
  • Speeding or unsafe acceleration
  • Under-inflated tires on big rig trucks
  • Cargo shifting or improperly loaded commercial trucks
  • Truck driver fatigue related to violation of hours-of-use regulations
  • Truck driver substance abuse
  • Improper braking or deceleration
  • Poor truck maintenance or shoddy repair work
  • Vehicular blind spots
  • Careless or reckless driving

In fact, the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) has identified many of these 10 causes as major contributing factors in commercial truck accidents.

Hours-of-Service Debate

One of the biggest issues within the trucking industry Is that many carriers, especially smaller, independent companies, ignore or manipulate the hours-of-service regulations that the federal government has mandated to mitigate the problem of driver fatigue.

Hours-of-service refers to the number of consecutive hours that a commercial truck driver can operate a vehicle without taking a break.

It has been a political hot potato for several years, pitting safety regulators against truck industry lobbyists who are well funded and use money to sway members of Congress.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requires that the driver of any commercial vehicle that meets certain conditions, adhere to the hours-of-service regulations that limits the number of hours a driver can operate a vehicle.

In order to try and cut down on driver fatigue, the Electronic Code of Federal Regulations states that truck drivers are not allowed to work more than 60 hours in 7 consecutive days or 70 hours in 8 consecutive days.

But the trucking industry, led by the American Truckers Association (ATA), the most powerful member organization of trucking companies, successfully lobbied Congress to table the proposal, citing a likely increase in traffic congestion that would also likely lead to more – not less – accidents.

The FMCSA promised to revisit the issue at a later time, but the ATA has vowed that it would force the agency to conduct years of study about the effectiveness of any new proposal that would amend the existing hours-of-service regulations.

Truck drivers may only drive a maximum of 11 hours after 10 consecutive hours off duty, and must have at least one 30-minute break if they are driving 8 consecutive hours or more.

These regulations apply to the drivers of commercial vehicles that:

  • Weigh more than 10,001 pounds
  • Are designed to transport 16 or more passengers not for compensation
  • Are designed to transport 9 or more passengers for compensation
  • Are transporting hazardous materials in a quantity requiring placards

“Hours-of-service rules aren’t arbitrary,” Witherite added. “They were established based on studies that determined the level of focus and attention that is lost after a certain number of hours spent driving. But when the FMCSA tried to amend these regulations, and lower the maximum hours commercial drivers could spend operating their vehicles in a week, the trucking lobby flexed their muscles and forced the FMCSA to suspend that amendment. They claimed that the new proposal would generate an increase in traffic, but the truth is that many of the larger carriers knew that they would lose money if the government curbed the number of hours their drivers could spend on the road.”

And what makes commercial truck driver fatigue such a danger to other motorists is the fact that tired drivers often fail to obey the rules of the road, speed in an unsafe manner, improperly brake or decelerate, fail to account for blind spots, and exhibit careless or reckless driving.

With the addition of driver fatigue, these are six of the 10 most common causes of commercial truck accidents that were previously listed.

That’s a scary thing to ponder, the fact that driver fatigue can have so many unintended, but often fatal consequences when a truck accident occurs.

Even more troubling is what Witherite points out about the costs of these accidents beyond just the accident site.

“You’re talking about injured employees, inventory loss or damage, production delays in shipping because a truck is out of operation,” Witherite stated. “There’s also an increase in liability and insurance costs for all drivers because of massive payouts, and a lowering of public confidence in these major truck carriers.”

Finding Justice After A Truck Accident

There’s no way to minimize the devastation that a truck accident can cause to a family. It’s not just the physical damage, which includes injuries and property loss, but it’s also the psychological scars that remain long after. If you live in Atlanta, Austin, Dallas, El Paso or Texarkana, we urge you to call 1-800-Truck-Wreck if you have suffered injuries in a truck accident, and talk to a lawyer at Eberstein & Witherite.

Big truck accident victims often feel as if they are battling the truck company by themselves, but that doesn’t have to be the case. We have years of experience knowing how to handle these accidents, and our primary goal isn’t just to obtain compensation that is fair, but to help you fully recover your quality of life. Call us today, or fill out the online form, and a member of our team will get back to you immediately.

Camfil Is More Than Just Clean Air

Camfil Is More Than Just Clean Air

Riverdale, NJ, 10/31/2016 /SubmitPressRelease123/

At Camfil, the idea of air filtration goes beyond just producing clean air. The goal is to improve the environments where so many people spend most of their time; to protect the health of the countless people around the world who would otherwise spend their days working and breathing polluted air.

Anders Sundvik, Vice President of Research and Development at Camfil, states, “Our business is all about energy efficiency, safety and health. We believe that the right to breathe clean air is a basic human right. Air filtration is not just about producing clean air as it is about protecting people’s health.”

Based in Trosa, a small village in Sweden, Camfil began more than 50 years ago as a family-owned company, and continues to run as one today. Since our beginnings in the 1960s, the company has grown into a global leader in the air filtration market, employing more than 3,700 people at 26 production plants throughout Europe, North America and East Asia. Camfil maintains a presence in over 50 countries around the world, with annual sales of around 700 million dollars.

A Big Small Company

When looking at the size of other companies working on a global scale, Camfil looks small in comparison, but the company has few competitors working on the same level. Camfil has proven itself as a leader in all of the major segments of the air filtrations market, from products designed for individual consumers and small offices to industrial solutions that will handle everything from heavy dust and gas pollution to sterilization equipment used by microbiology laboratories.

Showing that Camfil understands the market and their customers, Mr. Sundvik explains, “The air filter market is very local. It’s built on personal relationships. When you buy air filters for your building, you go to the closest vendor, who often happens to be a small local ‘garage’ entrepreneur in your neighborhood. So we make every possible effort to act local but stay global wherever we operate.”

When asked about what makes Camfil stand out from so many local vendors, Sundvik adds, “Our competitive edge is being at the forefront of technological innovation in the industry. Selling high-quality air filters is tough. Clean air is an invisible product. No one would be able to tell how polluted the air we are breathing actually is without measuring and monitoring it. We help our customers visualize clean air.”

Technology and Innovation

To help its customers visualize the air they breathe, Camfil has built mobile laboratories for monitoring and measuring the levels of dust particles and concentrations of gases and contaminants in the air on customer sites.

In 2012, the group added a state-of-the-art R&D campus, the Tech Center, to its Trosa manufacturing base. The 2,500 square meter Tech Center is one of the largest research and development centers in the world for the development of air filters, clean air solutions and filter production technology. The facility employs 35 specialists and is equipped with the latest laboratory technology to analyze air and develop high-performance filtration products and systems.

All of this has been put into place to help Camfil fulfill its promise of products that are designed for sustainability, health and lowest possible operational cost.

Unprecedented Energy Efficiency

Filtering and cooling the air in commercial spaces requires a lot more energy than you might think you’d need to simply push air around. To give you an idea, an average residential air filtration system will consume as much electricity as a domestic refrigerator/freezer. If you need to increase the filtration rate, it’s about the same, in energy costs, as adding another refrigerator to your home.

Expanding on Camfil’s intention to increase the energy efficiency of their products, Mr. Sundvik had this to say, “The current level of air filter performance is a compromise between efficiency and energy consumption. Our future goal is to increase efficiency while keeping energy consumption at lower levels. If we manage to reduce the energy consumption of our filter by just one percent, the aggregate effect of energy savings for our customers would total approximately 150 Gigawatt/Hours per year.

While that 1% reduction in energy consumption already makes for impressive numbers, it is nowhere near the company’s actual goal of a 20% cut in the energy consumed by our products. When this goal is reached, the resulting savings for the economy as a whole would be in the hundreds of millions of dollars.

Looking to The Future

As an industry leader today, Camfil is focused on creating a better future. The products we produce today are delivering unmatched results, in terms of both filtration and energy efficiency, but there is still much work to be done. Our experience and reputation for innovation will carry us into the future, where we will continue to lead the way. We are hard at work, developing new technologies and systems that will not only allow us to keep our promises of sustainability, a healthy environment, and lower energy consumption, but improve upon them as time goes on.

Dealing with the Hidden Dangers of Dining Out

Dealing with the Hidden Dangers of Dining Out

Riverdale, NJ, 10/28/2016 /SubmitPressRelease123/

Whether it’s sitting for a six-course meal at a fancy five-star restaurant or grabbing a quick bite for lunch at a favorite fast food place, it’s hard to find anyone who doesn’t like to leave the cooking to someone else once in a while and have a meal out. Just looking around any typical neighborhood it’s easy to find everything from popular local foods to exotic cuisines from around the world.

Even though restaurants come in all shapes and sizes with so many different types of foods, there is one thing they all have in common. The constant cooking that goes on in every food establishment releases all kinds of harmful pollutants into the air, both inside and outside.

Cooking Creates Contamination

The simple act of cooking food releases many different type of contaminants into the air. Cooking is, after all, an act of controlled combustion. Just as the combustion that happens in your car’s engine produces harmful exhaust, the combustion that occurs inside an oven or on top of a stove produces many of the same contaminants that are bad for our health.

Frying, grilling and toasting foods, whether with gas or electric equipment, creates particulate matter, nitrogen dioxide, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and a variety of volatile organic compounds, or VOCs. To illustrate just how bad some of the airborne contaminants released by cooking can be, acrolein is a substance that most people recognize as the smell of burnt oils or fats. This substance was actually used in grenades during World War II because of its irritating effects on the lungs and eyes. We are just so accustomed to the smells, both pleasant and unpleasant, that go along with cooking that we don’t associate them with something that could be bad for our health.

Filtration Is Important for Protection

Making use of HVAC systems capable of not only moving the air, but filtering it as well, is a primary concern in the restaurant industry. Without filtration, the air in any commercial eating establishment would quickly turn into a cloud of unpleasant odors and harmful pollutants. Without effective air filtration, staff would undoubtedly suffer damage to their health from working in such a high level of contaminants. In addition, customers would be exposed to an endless variety of odors that would ultimately result in a negative dining experience.

Controlling the air flow and quality in restaurants brings unique challenges. In the kitchens, air is constantly being forced out through exhaust fans over cooking appliances. At the same time, doors are almost constantly being opened and closed, bringing in outside air and altering the pressure of the air within the building. Special attention must be paid to all facets of building and HVAC design in order to keep everything functioning as it should, for the health and safety of both patrons and staff.

Camfil Products Make A Difference

Camfil’s air filtration products are designed to efficiently remove everything from sub-micron sized particles to toxic gases and bad odors from the air. From the smallest local “greasy spoon” favorites to industrial operations making thousands of prepared meals per day, Camfil can provide a solution that will work for every business.

With more than 50 years of experience in the air filtration industry, Camfil’s position as a market leader is built on relentless innovation and dedication to quality. Camfil products can improve any air ventilation system, with certified filtration efficiency, proven lower energy consumption and the lowest total cost of ownership available. We can help you to improve the quality of the air your breath and save you money while doing it.

FAA Wants Pilots to Get Mental Health Checks

FAA Wants Pilots to Get Mental Health Checks

New York City, NY, 10/28/2016 /SubmitPressRelease123/

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) recently announced it is undertaking efforts to urge pilots to seek help for mental health issues. The announcement came about one year after the tragic Germanwings plane crash that claimed 150 lives. Investigators believe the pilot in that crash intentionally downed the plane while experiencing a mental health crisis.

If you have been injured in an airline accident, or you have lost someone you love in an airline crash, speak to a New York City airline accident lawyer today.

FAA Focus on Pilot Self-Reporting

As reported by USA Today, the FAA stopped short of changing rules created after the September 11 attacks — rules that require pilots to lock the cockpit door, which some argue prevents crew members or passengers from accessing a pilot who is showing signs of a mental disturbance. The FAA also declined to make psychological testing mandatory for pilots.

According to FAA administrator Michael Huerta, the FAA would like to see a culture in which pilots self-report when they are experiencing mental health problems. Huerta also said that aviation medical examiners will receive additional training to allow them to spot possible signs of mental stress in pilots. Under current FAA rules, pilots must undergo a medical exam once a year, and pilots age 40 and older receive a medical exam every six months.

The FAA’s deputy federal air surgeon dismissed specific psychological testing as a “snapshot” of a pilot’s mental health on the day of testing and said it wouldn’t be effective. A FedEx pilot with 30 years’ experience and a representative of the Air Line Pilots Association agreed with the FAA’s decision, saying that said pilots are checked regularly for signs of mental stress. He also commented that pilots “are the most scrutinized profession in the world.”

Although mental health-related crashes are rare, they attract a great deal of attention when they occur. In two other cases — a 1999 EgyptAir Flight in Massachusetts and a 1997 SilkAir Flight in Indonesia — crash investigators say there was evidence of the pilots fighting for control of the aircraft prior to the crash.

New York City Airline Accident Law Firm

If you have been injured in an airline accident, or you have lost a loved one in an airline crash, you probably have a lot of questions about your options and your legal rights. In these tragic cases, it’s important to work with a lawyer who regularly handles complex airline accident cases. In most cases, it’s important to act quickly. Don’t wait to speak to a lawyer about your case.

Is Stop and Frisk Unconstitutional?

Is Stop and Frisk Unconstitutional?

Dallas, 10/28/2016 /SubmitPressRelease123/

“Stop and frisk” is a topic that has dominated headlines over the past few weeks. As a result, many people are wondering if the police are allowed to conduct these types of stops.

Any time the police stop you, there is a possibility that your rights have been compromised. In the heat of the moment, it’s easy for police officers to forget that you have important rights. If you believe the police violated your constitutional rights during a stop or any type of police encounter, don’t wait to speak to a Texas criminal defense lawyer.

Your Fourth Amendment Rights

Stop and frisk is a complex area of law, and it’s a topic that has been the subject of much debate over the years.

Overall, stop and frisk searches are legal and have been upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court since they were first recognized as an exception to the Fourth Amendment right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures. The Court first discussed stop and frisk in Terry v. Ohio in 1968.

In Terry, the Court stated that police officers are in an inherently dangerous profession. To protect themselves, they must have the ability to determine if someone intends to harm them. Generally, if a police officer reasonably suspects that an individual has committed a crime or has a weapon, the officer can perform a stop and frisk search.

New York City’s Stop and Frisk Policies

On the other hand, these stops have generated controversy. In 2013, New York City’s police department came under fire when a federal judge ruled that the department’s stop and frisk practices unfairly targeted minorities. The ruling did not state that the city’s stop and frisk law was unconstitutional. However, the judge held that the department’s practices violated the Supreme Court’s ruling in Terry. The then-mayor initially filed an appeal, but his successor took office shortly after and decided not to pursue the appeal.

Stop and Frisk in Texas

The Texas Criminal Court of Appeals just upheld a “stop and frisk” case in Furr v. State in September 2016. In that case, the court ruled that the police were justified in conducting a stop and frisk search of an individual based on an anonymous tip they had received. They based their reasonable suspicion of a crime on the suspect’s behavior, which included looking back at a police officer repeatedly, acting anxious and nervous, refusing to respond when the police asked if he had a weapon, and acting erratically.

Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition Reopens In Dallas

Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition Reopens In Dallas

Dallas , TX, 10/28/2016 /SubmitPressRelease123/

On this day in history, the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in Rome, one of Italian artist Michelangelo’s finest works, was exhibited to the public for the first time. The opening coincided with All Saints’ Day, the solemn holy day of the Roman Catholic Church that is dedicated to the saints of the Church – that is, all those who have attained heaven.

Today, on All Saint’s Day 2016, the doors to Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition will reopen in Dallas through Jan. 8, following reviews that have called the exhibition “enjoyable … it’s bright, bold, and overwhelming” and “an innovative interpretation of the timeless masterpieces.”

The extension is in response to the public and critical acclaim of the exhibition that brought in more than 50,000 views up close to some of the most famous images in the history of Western Art during the 2016 State Fair of Texas.

About the frescos

Michelangelo’s epic ceiling frescoes, which took several years to complete, are among his most memorable works.

Between 1508 and 1512, under the patronage of Pope Julius II, Michelangelo painted the Sistine Chapel ceiling, the masterpiece without precedent that was to change the course of Western art. Central in a complex system of decoration featuring numerous figures are nine panels devoted to biblical world history. The most famous of these is The Creation of Adam, a painting in which the arms of God and Adam are stretching toward each other. In 1535, Michelangelo returned and painted The Last Judgment for Popes Clement VII and Paul III.

About the Exhibit

Martin Biallas, CEO of Los Angeles–based firm Special Entertainment Events Inc., obtained photographs of the Sistine taken by Austrian-born Magnum photographer Erich Lessing during the 1980–94 cleaning and restoration of the chapel. The now enlarged images, exhibited on 16-foot brilliantly illuminated panels, with outstanding resolution, clarity and color, will continue to be displayed at the Women’s Museum at Fair Park through Jan. 8, 2017. The exhibit will move to New York City after the Dallas engagement.

Highlights of Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibit, co-produced by Beau Ioana of Giobeau Productions and Dallas-based Rafael Luna of Strategic Events, include an intimate look at The Creation of Adam and a 40×41-foot rendition of The Last Judgment. Also available is a fully narrated audio tour (available in English and Spanish) that provides narrative and insight behind each and every panel on display.

What Makes a Cleanroom a Cleanroom?

What Makes a Cleanroom a Cleanroom?

Riverdale, NJ, 10/26/2016 /SubmitPressRelease123/

A cleanroom is a controlled environment where various types of products are manufactured. Cleanroom facilities are used in several industries where even the smallest amount of contamination can affect the quality of the end product, such as with pharmaceutical and semiconductor production.

In every cleanroom the concentration of airborne particles must be controlled to specific limits, which are usually determined by the type of product(s) being manufactured. Contaminants in the air can be generated by people, manufacturing processes, facilities and equipment. In order to maintain the required low levels of contaminants in the air, these microscopic particles must be constantly removed through a process of air circulation and filtration.

1000 Times Cleaner Than Office Air

We can compare the air quality of a common office environment and that of a cleanroom environment to help illustrate the extreme difference between the two. In a typical office space, there are anywhere from 500,000 to 1,000,000 particles with a size of .5 microns or larger in every cubic foot of air. A cleanroom may require that these particles be reduced to 10,000, 1,000 or 100 particles per cubic foot. Some facilities may require the contaminant level to be even less.

A particle .5 microns in size is roughly 200 times smaller than the diameter of a human hair. As small as that is, just one of these invisible particles can cause disastrous results in a cleanroom manufacturing environment. A perfect example of this is the Hubble Space Telescope built by NASA. The billion-dollar project did not function as expected and nearly failed because of a single stray particle that was even smaller than .5 microns.

That main challenge in a cleanroom is maintaining the ultraclean environment once it has been created. Even though cleaning and air filtration is nearly constant, new particles are constantly being introduced into the environment in many different ways.


The materials that make up the facility itself are constantly breaking down and releasing particles into the air. New contaminants can come from paints and coatings, construction materials such as sheetrock or sawdust, air conditioning debris, or spills and leaks.


Every person within a cleanroom is another source of contaminants. Vapors in breath, perfumes and cosmetics, shed skin cells, hair, and debris such as lint from clothing are all potential contaminants that must constantly be removed from the air and the environment.

Tools and Equipment

Necessary equipment used within the cleanroom will also release their share of particles and contaminants into the environment. Particles can be generated from friction and wear on tools, use of lubricants, and use of cleaning equipment like brooms, mops or dusters. Even vibrations caused by normal processes can shake new particulate matter loose from any number of places within the room.

There are three main elements that make up the overall system used to maintain a cleanroom environment.

Cleanroom Architecture – Cleanrooms are designed with their purpose in mind. From the materials used in construction, to the airflow patterns produced by room layout and ventilation system configurations, everything must be considered in order to make the environment as easy to maintain as possible.

Advanced Air Filtration – Effective air filtration is an absolute necessity for maintaining the environment. In most cases, HEPA filters that are specifically designed to remove sub-micron size particles are necessary. Additional filters may also be needed to remove gas and liquid particles that would cause contamination problems.

Cleaning – Regular cleaning procedures must be devised and implemented that will effectively clean the area while also minimizing the amount of new contaminants released into the air through the cleaning process itself.

Camfil Products Make a Difference
