What is a laminar flow bench?
Tuesday, August 1, 2017

Greenlight Optics employs several instruments to ensure dependable precision optical system assembly.  From UV curing equipment to alignment stations, we leverage advanced technology to in both prototypes and production. 

 

To understand a laminar flow cabinet, we must first understand the delicate nature of optics systems.  The opto-mechanical and opto-electrical systems manufactured at Greenlight Optics must be assembled and tested for accuracy in a contamination free environment.  The smallest pollutant can impact the function of the device, as well as our analysis.  For this reason, our products are assembled in a cleanroom – which is an enclosed environment free of contaminants.  Laminar flow clean benches meet ISO 14644 - Cleanroom Classification ISO 5 standards for the ideal cleanroom for our type of work.

 

Laminar flow clean benches are known by many names: laminar flow cabinet, laminar flow closet, laminar flow hood, or laminar airflow workbench just to list a few. Regardless of what you call it, the laminar flow bench serves the same purpose: preventing contamination.  The term laminar flow refers to air flowing in parallel layers through a closed channel, typically at a low velocity.  The clean bench protects the product, though not the user, by blowing laminar flow through a HEPA filter before it reaches the product. 

 

The laminar flow bench is just one example of the attention to detail you’ll find at Greenlight Optics.  We will never waste your time or your money with anything less than our best.
