Why Medical Manufacturers are Using Ultrasonic Cleaners

August 6, 2021

Because new technologies have made medical devices harder to clean, medical manufacturers have to explore better ways to clean and sterilize medical equipment. High-pressure steam cleaning and autoclave sterilizing can’t be used for devices that include electronics or other heat-sensitive components. Manual scrubbing traditionally used to remove heavy contamination can scratch fragile optical parts and […]

Guidelines for Using Ultrasonic Cleaners to Clean Surgical Instruments

June 22, 2021

When surgical tools and instruments are difficult to clean and sterilize with traditional methods, ultrasonic cleaners can deliver excellent cleaning and sterilizing performance. Some instruments, such as laparoscopes used in minimally invasive surgery, may have heat-sensitive components and can’t be sterilized in an autoclave. Instruments may have complex shapes with areas impossible to reach with […]

Using Ultrasonic Cleaners to Provide an Effective Sterilization Process

June 8, 2021

Medical instruments, devices, and equipment designed for repeated use have to be cleaned and sterilized after each patient. Traditional cleaning has consisted of manual scrubbing and wiping together with steam cleaning. Sterilization then takes place at high temperatures in an autoclave. Modern medical equipment often includes electronics and other heat-sensitive components. Instruments may have interior […]

Why Ultrasonic Cleaners Are Essential to Medical Manufacturers

May 19, 2021

Because some modern medical equipment incorporates sensitive components such as electronics, sensors and optical fiber, traditional cleaning and sterilizing methods often can’t be used. Heavy contamination is removed with manual scrubbing and devices such as autoclaves use high-temperature steam to sterilize medical equipment. Sensors and delicate objects such as optical devices are easily scratched when […]

Ultrasonics Clean Semiconductor Components for Heart Pacemakers

April 6, 2021

Implants used in medical procedures are subject to extremely high standards of cleanliness and sterilization. Traditional cleaning methods including cleaning by hand, using parts washers and steam sterilization are often not effective for implants that include new technology. Semiconductor components are often fragile and heat-sensitive. They could be damaged from chemical cleaning methods or excess […]

Why is an Ultrasonic Cleaner Essential Equipment at a Medical Facility?

February 9, 2021

Because the advanced technology used in many modern medical instruments is heat-sensitive, these medical devices can’t be cleaned with high-pressure steam and sterilized in an autoclave. Parts such as electronics and optical fibers can be damaged when subjected to high temperatures, but manual cleaning at room temperature is not an ideal solution. Cleaning with brushes […]

Using Ultrasonic Cleaning for Medical Device Components

December 21, 2020

When components for medical devices are not cleaned at every stage of the manufacturing process, the components may introduce contaminants into the medical environment. Ultrasonic cleaning of these components ensures that they are free from harmful particles and dangerous substances when they are incorporated into the medical device. Manual cleaning may miss hard-to-reach areas and […]

How Ultrasonic Cleaning Benefits Medical Industry Operations

November 18, 2020

The cleaning of re-usable instruments, medical devices and implants during medical industry operations is critical but often difficult. Manual pre-cleaning is time-consuming and may damage delicate instruments. Steam cleaning and heat-sterilization are effective but can’t be used on temperature-sensitive components such as optical fibers and electronic sensors. Many of these instruments have complex shapes and […]
