  36. 36. Definitions--Cleanroom A room in which the air supply, air distribution, filtration of air supply, materials of construction, and operating procedures are regulated to control airborne particle concentrations so that appropriate air cleanliness levels can be met.
  37. 37. Definitions--Unidirectional airflow cleanroom (Laminar) A cleanroom in which the filtered air entering the room makes a single pass through the work area in a parallel-flow pattern, with a minimum of turbulent-flow areas. Unidirectional airflow rooms typically have HEPA or ULPA filter coverage of 80% or more of the ceiling (vertical flow) or one wall (horizontal flow).
  38. 38. Definitions--Non-unidirectional airflow cleanroom A cleanroom in which the filtered air entering the room or passing through the work zone is characterized by non-uniform velocity or turbulent flow. Such rooms exhibit non-uniform, random airflow patterns throughout the enclosure.
