Dry Ice Cleaning in the Medical Device Industry
Cleaning with Dry Ice Cleaning is beneficial to the Medical Device Industry as it helps to maintain the tight tolerances of precision micro-moulds. Its non-abrasive quality ensures that micorscopic letters, numbers and trademarks moulded into the products are not damaged during cleaning.
Dry Ice Cleaning enables manufacturers to optimize their process by cleaning contaminants from cavities, vents and hard-to-reach places. This is done without the use of chemicals, eliminating chemical residue on the mold. It is also recognised by the EPA, FDA and USDA as an acceptable material in cleaning methods.
