If you are planning on attending the MD&M Minneapolis show at the Minneapolis Convention Center Wednesday or Thursday, November 4-5th. Let us know if you need complimentary tickets!
We will be at our vendor’s booth, Ultrasonic Part Cleaning, Passivation, and Electropolishing in booth #1316. Bring some sample parts by for us to electropolish or clean.
Come by our booth at the Medical Design & Manufacturing Show Minneapolis and see our latest part cleaning, passivation, electropolishing, mass finishing, dryers/ovens and vapor degreasing manufacturing equipment and process systems and chemicals that will allow you to better clean / passivate / electropolish / finish your medical device parts.
Product Highlights and Case Studies of the Month:In the September 2015 newsletter, we look at case studies: DOT Department of Transportation Equipment Maintenance Spray Parts Washer, Pig Washer for Pipeline Pigging Equipment Cleaning in Oil and Gas Industry and also into solvent recovery and recycling equipment products.
DOT Department of Transportation Equipment Maintenance Spray Parts Washer
DOT and metro transit often performs their own maintenance and rebuild on their vehicles and equipment. This customer replaced their old mild steel system that was rusting out after years of service with a stainless steel spray parts washer to ensure the shell and plumbing of the system would last as long as the rest of the system.
Pig Washer for Pipeline Pigging Equipment Cleaning in Oil and Gas Industry
Pigging equipment is used in the oil and gas industry to clean, inspect and perform other maintenance operations on a pipeline typically without stopping the flow of the product in the pipe. A pig washer / cleaner is an essential parts washer for keeping pigging equipment operating properly. With today’s smart pigs able to inspect pipes and help prevent leaks, pig maintenance equipment is even more important with the increased cost of smart pigs.
Solvent Recovery Equipment and Chemistry Waste Disposal Recycling Systems
Solvent recovery and chemical disposal can become an expensive yet unplanned cost for solvent processes like vapor degreasing especially in today’s age of much safer, yet costly engineered solvents and fluids. Solvent recycling equipment can separate and remove soils, debris and oils from solvent reducing solvent purchases by up to 95% and chemical waste disposal cost by 90%+.
Automated Ultrasonic Medical Device Catheter Cleaning System
Medical device industry requires catheter cleaning during manufacturing to ensure extrusion molded surfaces are cleaned of soils and any polymer particulate (flash, dust, etc).With the side mounted flushing feature, the automated wash-rinse-rinse-final rinse system is able to clean the catheters in a combine bundle rather than separated individually.
How clean is clean? Clean specification test methods for parts cleaning
Best Technology often asks “How clean do your parts need to be?” but many times our customers just know they need to be “clean”. Since clean is relative for every application, it is important to understand part cleanliness and various clean test specifications. Read the article here
Pipe and Tube Washing and Cleaning Equipment
Tube and pipe cleaning presents a difficult challenge in part washing because cleaning solution must flow through the pipe in order to properly clean. Various cleaning methods exist for short tubes with adequate internal diameter (ID), but when the aspect ratio length:ID increases, it becomes necessary to force solution flow through the pipe itself.
