Easy cleanroom cleaning with Hydroflex

Published: 28-Sep-2018

Cleanroom cleaning systems specialist has introduced the PurMop-InSpec, a range of ready-to-use microfibre mops designed to make disinfection easier and safer

Hydroflex has developed PurMop-InSpec, an easy and ready-to-use solution for cleaning cleanrooms. The innovation will see Hydroflex offer a complete range of ready-to-use cleanroom microfibre mops. Headquartered in Gladenbach, Hydroflex specialises in the supply of cleanroom cleaning systems.

A GMP-compliant, rotating disinfection programme can be implemented with PurMop-InSpec, whether using biocide disinfectants (eg IPA, ethanol, quats, amphoteric tensides), sporicides (eg hypochlorous acid, H2O2, Ox), or neutral cleaning agents.

Typical problems connected with cleaning GMP class B and in some cases GMP class C areas include correctly dosing disinfectants, extensive GMP documentation for multiple components, and space restrictions that complicate the storage of cleaning equipment. These all cause high costs.

Together with a renowned disinfectant manufacturer, the cleanroom cleaning specialist has developed a new solution for the disinfection of GMP cleanrooms in the pharmaceutical industry, in pharmacies and in manufacturing plants.

Besides correct dosage and precise liquid quantities, easy and safe handling is another advantage of PurMop-InSpec. No material wear, no risk of residual contamination and easy validation of the mops are further advantages. In addition, PurMop-InSpec reduces cost because these are only incurred when disinfection is actually performed and even then, only for the precise amount of mops required.

All PurMop-InSpec microfibre mops have a surface capacity of approximately 15 m2. The certified PurMop EF40 is filled with liquid and packaged under sterile conditions in cleanroom class ISO 5. All products have a long sterile shelf and storage life of 12–24 months.

The mops and cleaning agents are stored separately until shortly before use, when the user activates the specially developed 'burst pouch' – a multichambered packaging that enables on-demand saturation within a few minutes.

Full sporicide performance with a gentle agent

The PurMop EF40-HA is a presaturated cleanroom mop with an effective and user-friendly disinfectant that is gentle on materials – a sterile, ready-to-use sporicide.

A ready-to-use product that is not caustic or hazardous to health, but is instead very mild, ensuring full sporicidal efficacy in accordance with EN 13704.

Hydroflex presents the first full-solution cleanroom disinfection concept: with high-performance, ready-to-use cleanroom flat mops. Besides products for surface disinfection, the complete product range of InSpec is also available in a variety of formats – for example, as sterile spray bottle, concentrate, canister and presaturated wipes.

This makes validation significantly easier for the user, as the same disinfectant agent can be applied in a wide range of formats, suitable for all surfaces in a cleanroom.
