Cleanroom microfiber swabs enable cleaner components and assemblies

by | Jan 18, 2023

Cleanrooms are environments that are designed to be as free from contaminants as possible. They are used in a wide range of industries, including semiconductor manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, aerospace, optics, and medical devices. In these environments, it is essential to keep surfaces and components as clean as possible to prevent contamination and maintain product quality.

MiraSWABS are designed to clean various sizes of O-ring grooves preventing particle contamination and high vacuum leaks.

One of the most effective ways to clean recessed, hard-to-access surfaces and components in cleanrooms is by using microfiber swabs. These swabs are made from a special fabric designed to be highly absorbent and durable. The microfiber fabric is engineered to remove submicron particle contamination from surfaces and components, making it an ideal choice for cleanroom applications.

90-degree angles and ridges can be cleaned faster and more thoroughly

One of the key advantages of microfiber swabs is that they can remove particles that are embedded in surfaces and components. This is because the microfiber fabric can penetrate the porosity or grain structure of surfaces and components, such as glass, plastic, and stainless steel. This makes microfiber swabs an ideal choice for cleaning surfaces and components in cleanrooms, as they can remove particles that other cleaning methods may not be able to reach.

MiraSWABS are designed with flexible heads and with a foam layer under the microfiber fabric to allow good surface contact to enable complete cleaning

Another advantage of microfiber swabs is that they can remove particles without leaving behind any residue. This is because the microfiber fabric can hold onto particles rather than push them around on the surface. This makes microfiber swabs an ideal choice for cleaning surfaces and components in cleanrooms, as they can remove particles without leaving behind any residue that could potentially contaminate the environment.

In conclusion, microfiber swabs are ideal for cleaning surfaces and components in cleanrooms. They can remove submicron particle contamination from surfaces and components, making them an ideal choice for semiconductor manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, and medical devices. Microfiber swabs can remove particles embedded in surfaces and components without leaving any residue, making them an ideal choice for cleanroom applications.

Foamtec manufactures a variety of swabs with different tip styles and shapes to meet a variety of cleaning applications. The single and double layers of microfiber fabric over foam and polyester layers make up the patent-pending tip of the MiraSWAB® 1500 and 1600 Micro Fiber Series Swabs. To improve the cleaning of recessed, difficult-to-clean areas, the double-layer tip design improves cushioning and conformability to work surfaces. Cleaning extremely confined spaces, like 90-degree angles, is best accomplished using single-layer tip designs. Thermal bonding techniques are used in all swab tip materials to ensure a secure, hygienic attachment to the polypropylene shaft.

Even when solvents like acetone, methanol, and ethanol are used, MiraSWABS are cleaned in an ISO Class 5 clean room using a patented procedure that results in extremely low particulate and NVR levels and streak-free cleaning performance. For the most demanding procedures, MiraSWABS® microfiber swabs resist degradation from abrasion and harsh solvents like acetone.
