Sterilization Compatibility

Robust solutions for cleaning and sterilization regimes

Sterilization Compatibility

Key Benefits:

  • Materials and products withstand multiple cleaning and sterilization cycles
  • Any potential contamination from seal deterioration is avoided
  • Extends seal life
  • Minimizes downtime
  • Maximizes mean-time between planned maintenance
Increasing Demands for Cleaning and Sterilization

Sterilization is a key factor for many healthcare and medical applications and the need for faster, more effective sterilization is leading to ever more aggressive sterilization methods. Clean-In-Place (CIP) and Sterilize-In-Place (SIP) processes provide increased efficiency because devices and systems do not need to be dismantled for cleaning.

Polymer products are vulnerable to attack from media and steam used in cleaning and sterilization processes. Deterioration of seals can lead to contamination, resulting in product loss and downtime due to system cleaning. This makes it vital to determine the impact of cleaning and sterilization processes and the limits of seals and materials via rigorous testing.

Optimum Solution for Stringent Cleaning Processes

Through extensive testing, Trelleborg Sealing Solutions has identified the optimum materials for use in the most commonly used CIP and SIP media. Application engineers can guide customers in the selection of the most appropriate material and product for their application to balance cost with performance.

The optimum sealing materials will extend seal life, minimize downtime and maximize the meantime between planned maintenance.
