Whether due to new products, modified manufacturing and coating technologies, or stricter regulatory requirements, nearly all industries are facing higher particulate and film cleanliness specifications. Accordingly, in addition to cleaning equipment and systems for classic applications, Ecoclean’s presentation at this year’s parts2clean will focus on optimally adapted solutions for high-purity applications, turnkey solutions for the cleaning and sterile packaging of medical technology products, and forward-looking services.
When cleaning production equipment for the semiconductor industry, such as components for DUV and EUV technology, vacuum technology components for use in the UHV, XHV and UCV range, modules for high-power laser systems, high-tech measuring and analysis equipment, as well as precision optics and medical technology products, extremely high requirements must be met in terms of particulate and film chemical cleanliness. Although the required specifications vary depending on the component and area of application, they cannot usually be achieved with classic cleaning systems. A permanently stable quality in production cannot be guaranteed in this way.
At this year’s Parts2clean, Ecoclean will be presenting appropriately adapted system concepts for batch and individual parts cleaning with aqueous media and environmentally compatible solvents, as well as coordinated high-purity equipment packages. The latter will be presented using the EcoCcompact solvent plant as an example.
Equipment adapted for high-end cleaning applications
In order to meet the high requirements, the equipment details of these packages include plant technology, media guidance and preparation specially adapted for high-end cleaning applications. Supplemented by special process options such as Ultrasonic Plus or Pulsed Pressure Cleaning (PPC), plasma cleaning, Ecoclean cleaning systems designed for ultra-fine cleaning enable high cleanliness specifications to be met in a reproducible manner.
With special process engineering details developed for high-purity applications, the multi-bath ultrasonic cleaning systems of UCM AG, the division of the SBS Ecoclean Group specializing in precision and ultra-fine cleaning, can also score points. Ecoclean also offers an answer to manufacturers of medical technology products, who have to meet ever more stringent requirements and stricter regulatory specifications from the FDA and MDR worldwide. For example, final cleaning and packaging have been critical components of the product since the introduction of the MDR. For these tasks, Ecoclean presents turnkey solutions for the final cleaning and sterile packaging of medical devices such as implants and instruments. Depending on the application, the packaging is done with already pre-validated material.
Another topic that will be in focus at Ecoclean’s booth is forward-looking service solutions. Experienced customer service staff will be on hand at the “Customer Service Station” to provide information about the innovative service app as well as topics such as predictive maintenance, customized service concepts, process analyses and employee training as well as plant modernization and ways to make cleaning processes more energy-efficient.
