Clean room maintained virtually free of contaminants, such as dust or bacteria, are used in laboratory work and
in the production of precision parts for electronic or aerospace equipment.

In the clean room standard ISO 14644-1 "Classification of Air Cleanliness" the classes are based on the
formula

Cn = 10N (0.1 / D)2.08 (1)

where

Cn = maximum permitted number of particles per cubic meter equal to or greater than the specified particle
size, rounded to whole number

N = is the ISO class number, which must be a multiple of 0.1 and be 9 or less

D = is the particle size in micrometers

Maximum Number of Particles in Air


(particles in each cubic meter equal to or greater than the specified size)

Data Centers
What is Federal Standard 209e for Data Centers?
The outmoded (replaced by ISO 14644) benchmark for optimum and safe operating levels is compared to
Federal Standard 209e for Data Centers at 100,000 particles at .5 microns per cubic foot of air space. Optimum
levels for temperature should normally be 70 to 72 degrees Fahrenheit, with humidity levels at 50%.

Please note: equipment manufacturers have varying optimum operating levels.

Notice:
Federal Standard 209E has been replaced with ISO Standard 14644. The first subsection in ISO 14644 (ISO
STND. 14644-1) has some unique changes from the old Federal Standard - however they are very similar. This
standard is now in effect for critical environments (Cleanrooms, Data Centers, etc.) worldwide. Some companies
have been successful with the federal Standard 209E, and may not have switched over yet. It is important for
these companies to know the main differences are easy to implement and may not be a costly change.

The main differences between Federal Standard 209E and ISO 14644-1 (Testing Standards) are:

a ISO Establishes 0.1um as the "Standard" Diameter


a ISO Creates 3 New Cleanliness Classes-
? 2 "Cleaner" classes (ISO class 1 and ISO class 2) than Federal Standard 209E
? 1 "Dirtier" Class (ISO Class 9) which is allows more particulate than Fed Standard 209E class
100,000
a Allows for discarding of "Outliers" - Federal Standard 209E did not.

—nternational Standards for Cleanrooms and Critical Environments


—nternational Cleanroom Standards:
ISO/TC209 has proposed ten (10) documents which will make up the cleanroom standards. These documents
are in their final voting stages and can be legally used in trade. The tables and sections below outline the first
seven of these documents in order.

—SO-14644-1 Classification of Air Cleanliness


Cleanliness class designations and quantity have changed from FS209E (see Table 1). Along with the obvious
change to metric measure of air volume, ISO 14644-1 adds three additional classes.

(Table 1) Airborne Particulate Cleanliness Classes (same as table above)
