Dry Ice Blasting for Medical Device Manufacturing

Maintain high product quality by efficiently cleaning medical device manufacturing equipment

Dry ice cleaning reduces cleaning time of precision moulds as well as precision and high-tolerance medical parts.

Dry ice blasting is being used in ISO 8 – Class 100,000 clean rooms.

The non-abrasive process will not damage moulds or tooling and allows for more frequent and effective cleaning, which significantly reduces replacement tooling costs and product scrap rates while increasing quality output.

Benefits of Dry Ice Blasting

Meet stringent industry process demands for quality and consistency

Dry ice cleaning safely and thoroughly cleans the complex cavities and vents of medical moulds, as well as quickly removes burrs and flash from finished medical parts – enabling the consistent production of high quality products.

  • Improve product quality
  • Process and product consistency
  • Meet stringent contract specifications
  • Increase productivity and reduce downtime
  • Non-abrasive No damage to tooling or equipment
  • No secondary waste stream
  • Clean in-place No disassembly required
  • Decontaminate surfaces
  • Environmentally responsible
  • Employee safe Reduce harmful chemicals and tedious manual cleaning

Dry ice cleaning results in a superior clean. And, with less downtime, we have been able to increase production. Our customers have very stringent quality control procedures and demands, and dry ice cleaning has helped us meet those requirements. The detail of cleaning we get with Cold Jet’s system allows us to clean areas that otherwise could not be cleaned.
