Critical Cleaning Solvent

Vapour degreasing and cleaning solvents for the removal of contamination in the manufacturing of medical instruments, implants and other devices

Critical cleaning is vital throughout the medical device supply industry for safe, successful operations and procedures. Cleaning processes must be proven to be safety critical and leave no residue that could possibly enter a patient’s body.
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 is compatible with all 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 for removing organic and inorganic soils and other particulates and sets the standard for removal of machining and cutting oils, coolants, grease, grinding, buffing and polishing compound while leaving no residues.
ProSolv® eliminates microbial contaminants during the cleaning process exposing the microorganisms, which have cell walls consisting of organic materials including lipids (fats) to a powerful solvent disrupting the cell walls. Once compromised the organism’s inner working lose this protection and the organism dies reducing the bioburden of the process.

ProSolv® is an excellent non- flammable, low toxicity, volatile carrier for organic and synthetic medical lubricants for coating cannulas, needles and instruments to produce comfortable, pain free insertion for patients. In many medical applications oxygen and gas pipework system systems are needed. Use ProSolv® for cleaning at installation and when pipework extensions and fittings are added as it is vital to remove oil and organics leaving residue free dry surfaces to standards approved by gas supply companies.

ProSolv® precision cleaning fluid is a “drop in” replacement trichloroethylene and n propyl bromide based solvents and can be used in any modern cleaning machine designed for solvents. It sets the standard for soil removal in these demanding applications. For many of these cleaning challenges, vapour degreasing or ultrasonic cleaning with ProSolv® are some of the most effective and efficient methods of cleaning medical devices without sacrificing economy,performance, production capacity or floor space.
