Vapor Degreasing Returns to Cleaning Disposable Medical Devices

Nearly all efforts at cleaning disposable medical devices require several steps during manufacturing. Each cleaning process is designed to remove contamination created during manufacturing processes, such as particulate, oils or inorganics. But achieving high quality cleaning results is a challenge in the world of medical devices because of the complex assemblies, intricate shapes, sensitive substrates and delicate parts. Many device manufacturers use water-based cleaning systems and simply tolerate the problems those machines bring. But today, many new solvent options are available. These new chemistries are highly effective, safe, environmentally friendly and affordable. In response, medical device manufacturers are once again realizing that vapor degreasing is highly effective method for critical cleaning.
