Medical Cleaning System (MCS)
The Static Clean Medical Cleaning System (MCS) is a powerful particulate control / source control tool in the Particle Trap® family of products designed to improve yields by reducing rework on devices and packaging. Perfect applications include:
- medical device manufacturing and packaging
- food processing and packaging
No more blowing particulate around the manufacturing environment or cleanroom causing re-contamination. This problem occurs when using guns, nozzles, or other conventional blow-off devices that do not provide a means of capturing the dislodged particulates. The Medical Cleaning System is ideal for particulate control on medical devices & packaging.
How It Works
Parts are passed from one side of the Medical Cleaning System (the “pre-clean side”) over and through the cleaning zone in the work surface to the “clean side” of the system. The flush mounted bottom Vacuum Hood, which incorporates shockless DC static control bars and stainless steel compressed air tubes, removes dirt particles via static neutralizing. Both the blister / part and surface particulates and the electrostatic attraction that bonds and holds particulates to the blister part are removed through a filtered dust collector. This removal prevents recontamination due to static attraction. The upper hood of the Medical Cleaning System is adjustable to accommodate various sized parts or trays.
The powerful VQM5003H Dust Collector for the Medical Cleaning System draws a high volume of air into the cleaning hood, tapered along its length. This achieves an even, turbulent slot velocity to effectively remove surface contaminants such as angel hair, dust, human body hair, skin flakes and airborne particles. These contaminants cause rework and inefficiency resulting in poor profits and quality. The dust collector comes equipped with a magnehelic gauge, indicating the internal filter condition, and a HEPA Filter. The HEPA filter is 99.99% efficient by weight on the air exhaust for use in a cleanroom environment — feeding clean air back into the environment.
The Medical Cleaning System (MCS) for static particulate control and elimination is available in various sizes:
- 4-foot system (MCS-3048)
- 5-foot system (MCS-3060)
- 6-foot system (MCS-3072)
Optional static ionizers are available for the clean side of the Medical Cleaning System to police the area and neutralize any static that is generated while handling and stacking the blisters / parts, preventing a build up of electrostatic charge that can cause recontamination.
The MCS Medical Cleaning System is available with our Flex Laminar Flow option that includes a HEPA Fan Filter unit & clear ESD softwall curtains.
