Microlumen Cleaning Fixture
FUNCTIONAL TEST STATION SUMMARY
Pipeline Design & Engineering created multiple R&D fixtures to evaluate a suitable cleaning process whilst establishing requirements to design and build a production system capable of washing and drying multiple lumen-based surgical devices in parallel.
DESIGN TOOLS USED:
SolidWorks 3D CAD
Medical Device Reprocessing Equipment
- Create R&D Fixtures to fully define necessary Reqs
- Create an insulated system for processing 12 devices in a production environment
- Hybrid fluid system shall switch from Air/Water supplied at 90PSI
- System shall be made of High-Reliability components capable of sustained cycling and extreme resistance to corrosion and chemicals
SUMMARY OF ACTIVITIES
Pipeline’s customer needed help developing the process and requirements suitable to create a system to meet the reprocessing team’s cleaning goals.
Pipeline created multiple configurations of test fixtures until the system operating parameters and requirements were fully defined, then designed a reproducible system (detailed in CAD and drawings) for clean-room installation
Pipeline worked closely with the engineering team to test and evaluate each component, function, and operational characteristic in order procure the optimal solution.
Finally, Pipeline designed, procured, assembled, and installed two of these turnkey systems within a total project lifecycle of roughly two months.
