Medical Device Manufacturing - Dry Ice Blast Cleaning

Cold Jet precision dry ice blast cleaning provided by Dry Ice Scotland has helped medical industry manufacturers meet stringent industry process demands for quality and consistency. Cold Jet systems enable 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. Dry ice is also approved by the EPA, FDA and USDA as an acceptable material in cleaning methods.

Cold Jet dry ice blast cleaning is a non-abrasive system that can extend the life of the mold by eliminating the need for harsh chemicals, wire brushes and abrasive pads. From catheter tips, surgical device handles, surgical instrument trays, or stents, to cleaning the clamping devices used during the fabrication process, Cold Jet has a solution. When it comes to product finishing, Cold Jet’s systems can be used to deburr or deflash medical products manually or can be integrated into the manufacturing process.
