Improving Equipment and Device Cleaning in Medical Device Facilities with Foamtec’s UltraSORB Wipers

by | Aug 3, 2023

In the manufacturing of medical devices like stents and catheters, the cleanliness of the equipment used is of utmost importance. The presence of small metallic particles generated by guide wire branders and laser tools can compromise the quality and functionality of these devices. Foamtec’s UltraSORB wipers offer an effective solution for cleaning such equipment. With their open-cell super absorbent sponge cleanroom wiper, these wipers can dislodge, entraps, and remove particles without shedding fibers onto work surfaces or devices. Additionally, the soft yet tear-resistant foam construction allows them to conform to device surfaces, enhancing cleaning efficacy. Let’s dive deeper into the benefits and features of Foamtec’s UltraSORB wipers.

Effective Particle Removal:
The UltraSORB wipers are designed to tackle the challenge of removing small metallic particles generated during the manufacturing process of medical devices. These particles can be stubborn and difficult to eliminate completely. However, the open cell super absorbent sponge cleanroom wiper technology used in the UltraSORB wipers enables effective dislodging, entrapping, and removal of particles. This ensures that the equipment used in producing stents and catheters is free from any potential contaminants that could compromise the final product’s quality.

Fiber-Free Cleaning:
Maintaining a clean and sterile environment is crucial in the medical device manufacturing industry. Traditional wipes or cleaning materials often shed fibers, which can be problematic when cleaning sensitive equipment. However, Foamtec’s UltraSORB wipers are specifically designed to eliminate this issue. These wipers do not shed fibers onto work surfaces or devices, preventing any potential contamination. The fiber-free cleaning capability of the UltraSORB wipers ensures that the equipment remains free from unwanted particles and debris, meeting the stringent cleanliness requirements of the medical device industry.

Conforming Foam Construction:
The UltraSORB wipers are not only effective in particle removal but also versatile in their application. The soft yet tear-resistant foam construction of these wipers allows them to conform to various device surfaces, including braided guide wires. This feature enhances the cleaning efficacy by ensuring that all areas of the device are thoroughly cleaned. The ability of the wipers to adapt to different device shapes and textures ensures that no residue or particles are left behind, guaranteeing the highest level of cleanliness and quality in the manufacturing process.

Conclusion:
Foamtec’s UltraSORB wipers provide an excellent solution for enhancing the cleaning of equipment used in the production of medical devices like stents and catheters. The open cell super absorbent sponge cleanroom wiper technology effectively dislodges, entraps, and removes small metallic particles generated during the manufacturing process. Moreover, the wipers’ fiber-free cleaning capability ensures that no additional contaminants are introduced. The soft yet tear-resistant foam construction allows for excellent conformity to device surfaces, enhancing the overall cleaning efficacy. By incorporating Foamtec’s UltraSORB wipers into their cleaning protocols, medical device manufacturers can ensure the highest level of cleanliness, quality, and functionality in their products.
