NASA Goddard spacecraft cleanroom goes green
Date:1/13/2012

rticulates in the air stream and can modulate the fan speed up and down depending on the particle readings to make sure the room always stays in specification. This level of control allows technicians to partition off parts of the room to accommodate different missions. "I call it the room-in-a-room concept," she says.

"This really is a creative design, and I really appreciate what the design team came up with. They looked at many, many ways we could maximize the cleanroom size, make it versatile, and meet performance and energy-reduction goals," Richardson says. "This is a darn interesting engineering feat."

Final Test

Before the cleanroom could open for business it had to pass the required Latent and Sensible Heat Load Test. Members of the MMS project were called upon to gown up in special cleanroom suits and walk around in the cleanroom to generate heat and move particles around. Some participated in an impromptu exercise session, while others power walked around the room.

"The test results verified that the heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) system is capable of keeping the cleanroom within specific temperature and humidity requirements," said integration and test manager Joanne Baker of Goddard.

The new cleanroom passed with flying colors and is now ready for MMS spaceflight hardware.
