IEST Offers Industry Professionals Tutorials at the Fall Conference

Rolling Meadows, Ill | September 20, 2005

The Institute of Environmental Sciences and Technology (IEST) will hold its annual Fall Conference November 13-16, 2005 at the Hyatt Regency Woodfield in Schaumburg (near Chicago O’Hare International Airport), Illinois. The Fall Conference will feature contamination control working group meetings, as well as a variety of tutorial classes covering issues related to cleanrooms and controlled environments.

IEST will offer five contamination control tutorials at the Fall Conference. First, a new tutorial related to the hottest new area in technology will be available.

  • Nanotechnology and Its Required Environment: Facilities for Nanoscale Research

This all-day tutorial will include an overview of nanotechnology and the building environment it requires. The specialists will discuss current criteria and design approaches that might be used to address stability of vibration, noise, EMI/RFI, and electrical power, as well as cleanroom and biocontainment issues unique to nanotechnology. Each of the four presenters – Hal Amick, Ahmad Soueid, Louis Vitale, and Michael Gendreau – have extensive experience in their respective specialty fields, and all have been involved with multiple nanotechnology facilities. This tutorial will serve as preparation for and a companion piece to the nanotechnology Working Group organizational meeting the following day.

Secondly, an ISO Certificate Program consisting of three tutorials will be offered. Robert Mielke, secretary for ISO Technical Committee 209, is the instructor.

  • Testing to Determine the Classification of Air Cleanliness

This course covers the requirements of ISO 14644, Part 1, Cleanrooms and associated controlled environments – Classification of air cleanliness. ISO 14644-1 addresses the requirements for characterizing the particle count performance of air in cleanrooms and clean zones. Those who specify, operate, or test cleanrooms should enroll. This course can also be beneficial to designers, installers, and maintenance people involved in cleanrooms.

  • Understanding the ISO 14644 Series

This course discusses the ISO 14644 series of documents that have been written by ISO Technical Committee 209, and summarizes several of the ISO 14644 published Standards. This course discusses in detail ISO 14644, Part 2, Cleanrooms and associated controlled environments – Specifications for testing and monitoring to prove continued compliance with ISO 14644-1. ISO 14644-2 specifies which tests are required to characterize the performance of cleanrooms and clean zones.

  • Testing Cleanroom Performance Using ISO 14644-3

This course explores the technical requirements for ISO 14644, Part 3, Cleanrooms and associated controlled environments – Test methods. The course addresses the tests, both required and optional, for characterizing the performance of cleanrooms and clean zones, except particle counting, and includes, to a limited degree, a comparison between IEST-RP-CC006.3, Testing Cleanrooms, and IEST-RP-CC034.1, HEPA and ULPA Filter Leak Tests.

In addition, a tutorial on biocontamination will be offered.

  • Biocontamination

This tutorial covers ISO Standard 14698-1, Biocontamination control-Part 1: General principles and methods, and ISO Standard 14698-2, Biocontamination control-Part 2: Evaluation and interpretation of biocontamination data. Specifically, it will cover detection, enumeration, and identification of microorganisms. Gordon Ely, IEST President-elect, and Michael Rataj will teach the course.
