The unidirectional flow also known as laminar flow is a controlled, directed gas flow through the entire cross section of a defined volume at a constant velocity and in practically parallel streamlines. Laminar flow is often utilized for the protection of products that are extremely sensitive to particle contamination during transferring, filling and packaging.
Latest results from research centers and the accumulated experience from manufacturers indicate that the presence of particles constitute a frequently underestimated problem. Not only do they have undesired effects on the quality of the material, but can even reduce the overall yield of an entire manufacturing process.
Laminar gas/air flow conditions as they are commonly used in clean rooms set the standard for particle free environments. MBRAUN adopted the well established clean room concepts and transferred the core technical elements into the inert gas technology. Latest developments include the proprietary HPL membrane which is a unique feature only incorporated in MBRAUN systems allowing to reach cleanroom levels of less than class 1.
