Minncare Dry Fog System

UIP purchased a Minncare Dry Fog System which is currently being qualified for use in the Sterile Products department.  The Dry Fog system provides an easy to use process for Clean Room fogging. The combination of cold sterilant and state of the art Dry Fog delivery system enables a rapid and safe delivery of sanitizing solution vapor to even the most hard to reach areas of our Clean Rooms. The Dry Fog equipment produces fine droplets which ensure even dispersion of disinfectant solution throughout a room. These small droplets tend to bounce off solid surfaces, avoiding excessive condensation, corrosion, and surface wetting issues. The small droplets penetrate normally inaccessible areas and lead to a more effective sanitization process. The cold sterilant is a peracetic acid and hydrogen peroxide based chemical registered with the EPA for use as a fog to enhance existing cleaning and disinfection processes. It is fully biodegradable and will leave no measurable air residuals once the room has been fully ventilated. The use of this unit will provide an added level of assurance that UIP Clean Rooms have been effectively cleaned for aseptic operations.
