Cleanroom Sinks

In a cleanroom setup, all equipment needs to comply with the relevant safety and cleanliness standards. This is especially crucial in laboratories where authoritative research and scientific experiments occur. Companies must thoroughly select appropriate equipment, including sinks, to uphold regulatory requirements and quality control. 

Sinks are integral components of cleanrooms. In lab environments, cleanroom sinks maintain cleanliness and limit bioburden. At SPS CleanTech, we create innovative solutions that abide by manufacturing guidelines for cleanroom equipment. We offer a variety of sinks for hand washing, lab work, general cleaning or lavatory usage and options include:

  • 304 or 316L Stainless Steel
  • 1, 2 or 3 compartments
  • Drop-in Sinks, freestanding sinks or hand-washing stations 
  • Numerous options for edging, backsplashes and countertops

Key Features of Stainless Steel Sinks for Cleanrooms

Stainless steel is a common choice for cleanroom sinks because it is rust-resistant. In addition to being corrosion-resistant, our stainless steel sinks are:

  • Hygienic: Sanitation is essential in cleanrooms, where dirt and bacteria may thrive. Our stainless steel sinks integrate well with most laboratories and relevant industries for seamless cleaning. 
  • Heat resistant: The unique composition of stainless steel leads to high resistance to varying temperatures. As a result, it can withstand extreme temperature conditions in laboratory settings.
  • Durable: Stainless steel withstands frequent cleaning with harsh agents, which makes it suitable for sinks and other equipment used in sterile spaces. We have two options in our material selection — 304 and 316L stainless steel. The former is recommended if there are no caustic materials during the operations. If you use chlorides, sulfuric acids and other caustic elements, 316L stainless steel is the best option. 
  • Long-lasting: Because stainless steel comes with protection against corrosion, it lasts longer than other materials like plastic. The higher tensile strength adds to its life span.

Choosing the Appropriate Cleanroom Sink

The ideal cleanroom sink will be sized appropriately, configured ergonomically and made with materials that suit functional and environmental needs.

Consider the following factors in your decision:

  • Configuration: Choose a sink with a setup that facilitates the work you do. Some sinks for cleanrooms have single bowls, while others come with double compartments to improve efficiency. You can also find sinks directly attached to work tables. 
  • Material: Pick an appropriate sink made from material fitting your cleanroom’s use. For example, certain sinks might not work in environments where caustic chemicals are regularly used — 316L stainless steel is ideal in many such situations. If you don’t expose your cleanroom sink to materials like chlorides, fatty acids and sulfuric acids, 304 stainless steel may be an adequate option.
  • Budget: The equipment and furnishings you choose should also fit your budget. Keep in mind that upfront costs are just one factor to consider. For example, while 316L stainless steel costs more than 304 stainless steel initially, its longer life span can lead to savings in the long term.
