A New Standard for Sterilization

Versatile, Effective Sterilization for Various Pharmaceutical, Biotech, and Medical Products

Sterilization is a crucial component to medical device manufacturing process. There are a lot of service companies that source sterilization, but the results are expensive and time consuming. Instead Cool Clean has developed a solution that brings the sterilization process in-house. LCO2 sterilization uses non-toxic agents in a closed loop system to reduce bio burden, effectively cleaning and sterilizing the medical devices and garments.

State-of-the-art technology meets environmentally friendly in the Cool Clean liquid CO2, or LCO2 sterilization system. Unlike traditional sterilization methods (~90% of the market uses Ethylene Oxide (EtO) or 60Cobalt based gamma radiation for their sterilization process), LCO2 sterilizes in a sustainable and healthy manner. The odor-free sterilization method is compatible with sensitive new medical device products. When comparing to the harsh environmental impacts, high energy usage, pricing, industry volatility, and processing time for of other forms of sterility, our sterile CO2 process is more sustainable and faster.

There are significant economic advantages that Cool Clean’s sterilization equipment provides, including state-of-the art liquid CO2 cleaning, short cycle times, a cool 45° F operating temperature, less machine maintenance, and uses non-radiation-based technologies throughout the sterilization process. Cool Clean’s LCO2 sterilization system can be placed almost anywhere, since there are no zoning restrictions or environmental regulations associated with non-toxic CO2. Additionally, there are no concerns with ground water contamination, waste disposal, or regulatory paperwork. Best of all, customers will experience superior quality while knowing the process is environmentally friendly.

CCT’s LCO2 sterilization is a complete liquid CO2 cleaning system that includes both sterilizing and sanitizing in a single compact unit. High purity stainless steel modules are available as a front-loading tumbler with semi-automatic closures. Integrated CO2 recycling and purification system provides fast and energy-efficient sterilization. PLC process control with a graphical user interface are standard features. Easy to load stainless steel vessel accommodates all device geometries.
