Pneumatic Tube

Can you place a pneumatic tube station in an anteroom?

 

Will it effect the ability to maintain ISO 7? If it is a new facility, can it's effect be taken into account in the design?

 

Anyone have one in their anteroom?

 

Thanks for your help.

Re: Pneumatic Tube

Hi,

 

The placement of a pneumatic tube in the anteroom is less than ideal.  The tubes may be dirty, you have unfiltered air blowing into the anteroom from the tubes and the cleaning of this piece of equipment is difficult.  Hope this helps.

Re: Pneumatic Tube

Thanks, Eric. I knew this was a problem, but you have given me some specifics to speak to as I argue against it.
