ProSolv Medical Device Cleaning

Prosolv high performance vapour degreasing solvent for medical device cleaning

Critical cleaning is vital throughout the medical supply industry for safe, successful operations and procedures. Manufacturers of medical instruments, implants and other devices using metals, glass, ceramics and plastics must select a cleaning processes compatible with all these materials of construction, to remove oils and other contaminants from the manufacturing processes. The cleaning system must be proven to be safety critical and to leave no residues on the surfaces of the cleaned parts.

In this short article we discuss the benefits of condensation cleaning with ProSolv® vapour degreasing solvent for medical device cleaning compared to water-based cleaning.

Water based cleaning options

Formulations for water based cleaners use combinations of surfactants to reduce the very high surface tension of water to allow penetration of the cleaning solution into minutes holes and very fine mechanical clearances. The solutions must solubilise oils, greases, cutting fluids, grinding and buffing compounds and remove particulate soils. Biocides are also present in these formulations to ensure no bioburden is carried over from the cleaning process.

After cleaning residues of chemicals must be removed or they may be a source of corrosion when the devices are in use. Multiple rinses in hot and cold de-ionised water using agitation of baskets or carriers or ultrasound to dilute and displace the cleaning liquids retained in minute holes, cavities and trapped between close tolerance metal surfaces.

Continuous production of high-quality deionised rinse water is extremely expensive, but the drying process is even more costly and environmentally challenging. Multiple cleaning and rinse tanks and drying ovens or tunnels need a lot of space and energy. Further controlled conditions are needed to cool parts after drying to prevent condensation of moisture, which can be growth media for bacteria, on the critically clean surfaces, before packing in sterile bags and containers for storage or shipping.

High output water based cleaning equipment can use conveyorised high pressure targeted spray tunnels for automated high-volume production with integrated “blow off” drying and conditioning tunnels.

For smaller scale operations systems are available using baskets in single cell dishwasher type equipment or open tanks. The latter can use manual or automated handling to progress baskets through the cleaning cycle using similar aqueous based chemical formulations with multiple deionised water rinses and a separate drying oven. These systems can process several baskets or carriers at a time so are only suitable for small batch production. In either case long process times will determine the size and complexity of installations.

Compare the complications of water-based processing to the simplicity and speed of vapour degreasing using ProSolv® solvents

Vapour degreasing or more properly condensation cleaning, is a proven process where a non-flammable halogenated solvent, safe for people and the environment is heated in the sump of a tank. Boiling solvent produces a dense vapour which is contained by condensation coils around the inner surfaces at the top of the tank. Solvent condensed on the coils is returned to the sump for reuse in a closed cycle.

Parts to be cleaned at ambient temperature are immersed in the vapour which condenses as solvent on the surfaces of the devices or parts in a continuous stream of perfectly clean solvent until the surfaces reaches vapour temperature when condensation ceases. Vapour degreasing uses only one tank with one liquid. Parts are cleaned, rinsed and dry in 3 to 5 minutes with parts hand hot ready for further processing, storage or packing into sterile packs for shipping.

ProSolv® solvents were developed to provide superior critical cleaning performance for manufacturers of medical devices and equipment. The solvent is stable when used for vapour degreasing or cold dip cleaning and compatible with metals, including titanium, ceramics, glass and most plastics used in producing orthopaedic implants, dental, ophthalmic and surgical tools, lenses etc. ProSolv® is a cost effective and sustainable solution to remove polar and non-polar soils and other contaminants and sets the standard for removal of machining and cutting oils, coolants, greases, grinding, buffing and polishing compounds, while leaving no residue.

Vapour degreasing and dip cleaning with ProSolv® is a very effective steriliser of microbial contaminants. Exposing the microorganisms, which have cell walls made up of organic materials including lipids (Fats), to a powerful solvent is a very efficient disruptor of the cell walls. Once compromised the organism’s inner workings lose this protection and the organism dies reducing the bioburden.

ProSolv® is also an excellent solvent carrier for organic or synthetic medical lubricant. This application for coating needles, cannulas and instruments needs consistent quality and evaporation rate to produce, comfortable, pain free insertion for patients.

In many medical applications oxygen and gas supply systems are needed and cleaning at installation and when extensions of pipework and fittings are added is vital for safety. ProSolv® removes oil and organics leaving residue free, dry surfaces to standards approved by gas supply companies, and is compatible with all metals.

Clearly solvent cleaning and vapour degreasing with ProSolv® is a better choice than water cleaning. Faster throughput, lower costs and sustainability to meet the unique challenges in achieving the high standards demanded for medical device manufacturing.

ProSolv® is manufactured in UK with excellent customer service, technical support and training from qualified distributors throughout Europe.

A tertiary azeotrope which blends the properties of solvents in the formulation to meet all the increasingly stringent demands of legislators for safer, non- flammable solvents with a low environmental impact while delivering high performance vapour degreasing in the precision engineering industries.

Unlike some other chlorinated and halogenated blends such as trichloroethylene, ProSolv® is an excellent choice to replace flammable solvents such as MEK, Acetone, Isopropyl alcohol (IPA) or hydrocarbons where manual wiping or brush cleaning is the preferred method. It is a non-flammable azeotropic blend which can be used for manual cleaning in suitably ventilated areas and recycled by distillation for reuse through many cycles. It is a very stable mixture with no need for monitoring or the need for additives or stabilisers.

In other applications ProSolv® offers a cost-effective alternative for halogenated solvents in formulations for dip, spray or aerosol applications and as a fast-drying carrier solvent for oil, silicones and other lubricants. Simple to install in any standard machine for vapour and vapour liquid degreasing.

ProSolv® is non-flammable (No Flash Point) with high solvency (KB Value 91) with a very low surface tension and low boiling point making it highly productive and economical in use. A very stable azeotrope in use no additives or testing required. Leaves minimal non-volatile residue.

Importantly the ProSolv® formulation is kind to the environment as it contains no hazardous air pollutants and is safe for users. It has zero ozone depletion (ODP) with very low global warming potential (GWP). ProSolv® is compatible with all metals.

Corrosion control for extreme conditions

Preventing disaster with corrosion control – lt is clear that the use of SuperCORR A for corrosion control can bring financial savings in reduced maintenance and replacement costs and more importantly greater safety.

Most people associate corrosion control with rust, which only happens in things made of ferrous metals such as steel girders, ships, iron pipes, steel reinforcement rods, and steel tanks and is the reason metals deteriorate and fail. Ferrous and non-ferrous metals corrode on contact with both fresh and saltwater as well as water vapour. They will also corrode when they come into contact with chemicals, liquid acids as well as acidic vapours, salts and bases, and bacteria.

Corrosion is also a problem in electronics from circuit breakers and contactors to wire bond connectors and soldered components on a printed circuit board. Electrical connectors and plugs are very prone to corrosion as well as non-ferrous metals and alloys such as copper and aluminium. For purposes here, corrosion can be defined as a chemical or electrochemical reaction between a material, usually a metal, and its environment that produces a deterioration of the material and its properties.

Corrosion is an increasingly serious and costly problem that can lead to plant and equipment failures which range from being an annoyance to being catastrophic. Failures caused by corrosion could and do lead to a direct failure of a component which could affect the entire system and can not only be very expensive in terms of down time to repair or replace plant and equipment, but can also prove to be very costly in loss of productivity but to human life.

ABOVE:

Mild Steel panel exposed to sea spray on board ship for 6 months.

A: Oil based CPC
B: Untreated section
C: Treated with
SuperCORR A, demonstrating its superior performance.

Preventing disaster with corrosion control – Electrical component failure

If an electrical component fails that affects your car that is just an annoyance and can be repaired fairly inexpensively and if you’re driving the car rolls to a stop and you get out. However, if an electrical system failed because of a corroded electrical contact in a control circuit which caused another electrical failure in the master fuel control system on an airliner at 30,000 feet with 250 people on board that could prove to be catastrophic. While the electrical contacts in both cases failed due to corrosion both failures could very well have been prevented by using SuperCORR A in a Corrosion Prevention Program incorporated into all routine maintenance programs.

“Self-healing” ultra-thin film barrier

If an electrical component fails that affects your car that is just an annoyance and can be repaired fairly inexpensively and if you’re driving the car rolls to a stop and you get out. However, if an electrical system failed because of a corroded electrical contact in a control circuit which caused another electrical failure in the master fuel control system on an airliner at 30,000 feet with 250 people on board that could prove to be catastrophic. While the electrical contacts in both cases failed due to corrosion both failures could very well have been prevented by using SuperCORR A

It is much simpler and a lot less costly to prevent corrosion than to repair or replace the damaged equipment or component that failed because of corrosion. The photographs show the effects of protecting metal surfaces and components in extreme condition with a SuperCORR A aerosol.

SuperCORR A is a non-conductive, non- flammable, hydrophobic, ultra-thin film lubricant and corrosion preventive compound. It is a “self-healing” ultra-thin coating that lubricates and protects metals, motors, electrical and electronic components from moisture, salts, chlorides, acids, and oxidation.

Corrosion of electrical components is very prevalent problem and one that can be prevented. Preventing moisture from coming in to contact with the electrical components is the key. An ultra-thin film of SuperCORR A will not only prevent moisture from coming in to contact but will displace moisture that is there already.

SuperCORR A is hydrophobic, that is it repels water and forms a “self-healing” ultra-thin film barrier that prevents moisture from coming into contact with the coated electronic components.

Tried And Tested Vapour Degreasing Solvent For Critical Cleaning

EnSolv vapour degreasing solvents distributed by EnviroTech Europe Ltd has been used over the last 30 years by hundreds of companies and for thousands of different applications.

With the unique stabiliser/inhibitor system giving stability and long life for degreasing tanks, reducing maintenance costs and low solvent losses EnSolv is very widely used and approved. Intense worldwide competition needs very tight control of manufacturing costs. EnSolv vapour degreasing solvents gives our users a tried and tested, economical product with the lowest operating costs.

n-Propyl Bromide (nPb) update

For more than 30 years n-Propyl Bromide (nPB) has offered users a safer solvent as a replacement for the carcinogen trichloroethylene as customers using EnSolv will know. Unfortunately, European legislation has set a “sunset date” for the use of nPB, the solvent used as the base material for EnSolv. The inclusion of nPB into Annex XIV has been challenged in the European Court by our supplier, the only manufacturer in the EU. EnviroTech Europe Ltd have always sourced from this consistently high quality manufacturer rather than search out cheaper often lower quality alternatives from Asia.

 

The Court was very receptive to all the points made. Despite our firm belief that the inclusion of nPB into Annex XIV was not carried out on the basis of all available evidence and we expected a decision earlier, this has been delayed until later in the year. EnviroTech will inform all clients of the outcome as soon as the decision is known.

Just in case EnviroTech are moving forward.

EnviroTech Europe are in the final stages of development of some new and exciting “drop in” cost effective replacements for all our valued customers old and new.

EnSolv CC-A a unique blend of dichloromethane with surfactants for improved cleaning and lifting of surface soils.

ProSolv a new formulation based on 1,2 trans-dichloroethylene with further developments in our laboratories of other blends to complement the range.

If a change is needed these products are available with full technical advice and support to give the same economical, high quality vapour degreasing and service for uninterrupted production. Details are available on our website.

As specialists in cleaning technology our new Aquus CL-One water based general cleaning solution is a game changer for manufacturing industry, petrochemicals, aviation and institutions with one product, safe on all substrates, for removal of oils, grease and odours.


Don’t Panic.

If you are using EnSolv products now, contact our sales team to discuss “nPB sunset data” we have the information you need to help you prepare and to change to the most economical best alternative.  Not using EnSolv! get in touch anyway, our expertise is free and it will probably be to your advantage.

Replace Toxic Solvents For Industrial Cleaning

Use Clarea degreasers to replace toxic solvents
for industrial cleaning

Clarea solvent degreasers are a newly formulated range of highly refined hydrocarbon based degreasing solvents with very high cleaning power and low odour, which can be used as an alternative to other hazardous solvents used throughout industry to remove oils, greases, hydraulic fluids cutting fluids and a wide variety of hydrocarbon based protective coatings.

Clarea solvents can be used in dip, brush or in hand-wipe applications.

Clarea HC40 has a relatively fast evaporation rate with low odour and is suited to hand wipe and brush cleaning and air dries while Clarea HC62 is not classified as flammable and is typically used with immersion dip and soak tanks for heavily contaminated parts where oven or forced air drying is acceptable.

Clarea solvents leave minimal residues on drying and are compatible with all metals and many plastics and composite materials. Clarea degreasing solvents can reduce usage and contain no halogens such as chlorine or fluorine so do not deplete the ozone layer or contribute to global warming.

Clarea solvents are one of the ranges of solvent based cleaners and surface treatment products from cleaning specialists EnviroTech Europe Ltd.
