Dry Ice Deburring for Medical Device Parts

Share

 

Dry Ice Micro-Deburring is an excellent option for burr removal for parts with intricate cuts, hard to reach spaces and complex geometries. This method uses dry ice blasted at high pressure which sublimates upon contact with the part’s surface. One of the important reasons that medical device manufacturers elect to use Dry Ice Deburring is that it eliminates the possibility that media particles will remain after the deburring process. This feature makes this a very popular method for deburring medical parts, most commonly PEEK cages and implants.  Dry ice blasting is an FDA, USDA and EPA approved cleaning process. The parts are deburred in a fixture using a small amount of ice per minute (less than a lb.) and typically at only 30 to 50 psi coming from a 25 cfm nozzle.
