What is Clean Room ?
A cleanroom or clean room is an environment, typically used in manufacturing, including of pharmaceutical products or scientific research, with a low level of environmental pollutants such as dust, airborne microbes, aerosol particles, and chemical vapors. More accurately, a cleanroom has a controlled level of contamination that is specified by the number of particles per cubic meter at a specified particle size. To give perspective, the ambient air outside in a typical urban environment contains 35,000,000 particles per cubic meter in the size range 0.5 μm and larger in diameter,
Why Class 100 CleanRoom is an Imporatant For DATA RECOVERY ?
The data recovery industry – dust, contaminants, air moisture, and high temperatures can all warp the surface of a hard drive that’s being repaired. The Class 100 Clean room has an environment specifically engineered to remove air contaminants, preventing them from damaging the open hard drives. A facility must adhere to and maintain a strict set of standards concerning equipment, equipment maintenance, and the recovery engineers’ activities in the cleanroom to receive a Class 100 rating.
Clean Room Lab is very important when it comes to data recovery from Physical damage or Media level damaged cases. Because hard disks are manufactured in Class 100 Clean room Environment with the help of Robotics and precision is maintained with read and write heads and magnetic platters. The components inside the hard drive are so delicate & the distance between head & platter is so near that it’s about 1/1000 of human hair.
Class 100 Clean Room with ISO 5 Standards is required with not more than 0.5 microns of dust particles allowed inside & it needs to be maintained regularly with air flow, air pressure, temperature, humidity & moisture to work with media level cases. Any part of contamination inside the clean room will ruin data recovery. We own a clean room with class 100 Standards & we maintain it regularly to perform data recovery from Corporate & Personal hard disks.
What Happen If Work Without Clean Room
Let us assume the situation without the clean room. If any company or individual operate physical or media level data recovery cases in the absence of a clean room, then there is no chance of getting any data back later. When you turn the hard drive “ON” and the dust particles are stuck between the platter and the heads, the effect is the same as using fine sandpaper, entire magnetic platter and hence data in it will be sanded off & there is no possibility to recover any data further. We do have technology for data recovery from damaged hard drives with fingerprints and dust particles, we use cleaning tools for cleaning the platter damages and remove dust particles from lab work methods, but success ratio is not as of non-damaged hard drives.
Practically, if we take a look closely at a light fitting near a window you can see the dust in a room. Even if we take care to clean the room daily we still find the dust and breathe particles in and out. Dust lands on everything and doesn’t stay in the air forever. Open a hard drive and leave it for approximately 2-5 minutes in a freshly cleaned room (not a clean room, I mean just a room that has been dusted and vacuumed). When you put back the components and pack the drive, you will find that, it already has dust particles on the platter.
Our Suggestions :
“If your Data is want to recover than Please do not Open Any Hard disk without Class 100/10 Clean Room Lab Because it may caused permenent Data Loss due to harm platter Area. “
