Choosing the Right Pre-Wetted Wiper option for your critical environment task

Pre- Wetted Wiper Pail

The Valutek resealable pail guarantees that your last pre-wetted wipe will be as consistently saturated as the first. Our refillable pail containers are environmentally friendly, minimizing solvent evaporation, and reducing operator solvent exposure

pre-wetted-wiper-bags-and-pail

Recommended for: High Volume applications, usage of 25+ wipers per shift

  • Starter Kit: Pail + 150 wipers (2 bags) Refill: 75 wipes (1 bag)
  • Durable Hinged Top. Positive Closure: Product remains wet – Reduced out gassing
  • Sturdy Recyclable and Refillable Pail: Minimize cost by refilling the pail. Durable containers are made of 100% recyclable plastic. Simply refill the pail with convenient refill bags
  • Stock high volume of Pre-Wetted Wipers: Storage up to 150 wipes in the pail, ensuring you have adequate wipers for large scale tasks

Refill Bags 

  • Vacuum Packed: All chemistry is driven into wiper substrate, ensuring uniform saturation.Eliminates excess liquid in packaging
  • Transparent Packaging: Inspect to ensure product is particle-free

Pre-Wetted Wiper Resealable Bag

Valutek’s transparent, vacuum packaged, zip lock resealable packaging is the first break thru in pre-wetted wipers since their introduction.

Recommended for: Low Volume applications, usage of 10-25 wipers per shift

How can this innovation improve your cleaning efficacy?

  • Pre-Wetted-Pouch3 Film layers: 3 is better than 2! Laminated film has 2 layers. The Valutek film is a new film from 3 layers. The required third layer replaces foil laminates high barrier applications.
  • Zip lock closure: Positive seal versus adhesive label, once package is opened, wipers will stay pre-wetted longer
  • Transparent Packaging:  Monitor quantity remaining and inspect to ensure product is particle-free
  • Vacuum packed: All chemistry is driven into wiper substrate, ensuring uniform saturation.
    Eliminates excess liquid in pack- aging
  • Flat bag: Allows easy storage

Cleanroom Glove Packaging. Not all gloves are packed equal

Is your glove packaged in a dispenser box? Is it labeled ‘examination glove’ ?

If so, it is not suitable for a critical environment. Why? Boxed exam gloves are designed to protect the operator. Cleanroom Gloves are engineered to both protect the operator and your critical product.

cleanroom glove packaging

 

Controlled environment gloves are flat packaged in a critical environment with the cuffs all to one end in two stacks of 50 each, double poly-bagged 100 per pack, 10 packs per case in a carton liner to ensure product integrity. Boxed gloves are not.

Over 98% of thin-wall, powder-free gloves are used in medical / lab / industrial applications. Operators of controlled environments often unknowingly procure a glove not designed to their application. Powder-free lab / industrial / medical grade boxed gloves are not suitable for a controlled environment because:

  • Boxed gloves are powder-free, not particulate-free. Uncoated chipboard dispenser boxes shed particles, and contaminate the powder-free gloves.
  • Dispenser boxes force operators to contaminate glove when donning. Operators’ bare hand should only make cuff contact.
  • Additives and fillers are often used in boxed gloves which reduce ESD compatibility (surface resistivity), and negatively impact glove cleanliness.
  • No post-processing to reduce surface contamination left from the dipping process

Engineered to protect your Product, Process & Operator

Valutek’s gloves are packed in double poly bags, vacuum sealed, flat packed in carton boxes and with a carton liner. All gloves are critical environment compatible, lot traceable with retention samples held in quality control for 36 months from date of manufacturing.

Vacuum seal benefit: better storage, no particulate release, no ESD issue

SUNY’s College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) Transforms Kodak Cleanroom

SUNY’s College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) will revitalize a vacant Kodak cleanroom building in Rochester, N.Y., by transforming it into a first-of-its-kind CNSE Photovoltaic Manufacturing and Technology Development Facility for crystalline silicon photovoltaics. Renovation is underway to transform the 57,000 ft2 building, which was formerly occupied by Kodak’s MEMS inkjet facility before it closed last October. The initiative will enable more than 100 high-tech jobs and includes the fitting up of a 20,000-square ft2 cleanroom. A late fall opening is anticipated. The first initiative as part of the project will relocate a critical component of the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) SunShot initiative from California’s Silicon Valley to Upstate New York…

Satellite Built by UAH Students ’99 Percent’ Ready for October Launch on NASA Rocket

The spacecraft conceived and built in Huntsville is virtually ready for launch and blast-off is less than three months away.

No, the Space Launch System is not suddenly on an accelerated program. Instead, it’s a group of students at the University of Alabama in Huntsville who have been working for more than three years on a tiny satellite that is scheduled to be sent into space in October.

Members of the Space Hardware Club at UAH were in San Luis Obispo, Calif., last week on the campus of California Polytechnic State University. The Cal Poly visit was to put the ChargerSat1 through readiness tests as a final hurdle toward the scheduled Oct. 30 launch.

The satellite got a “good thumbs-up,” according to team member Mark Becnel.

“We’re well past 99 percent (ready),” he said.

The project began in 2010 when the club applied for a spot on a future NASA launch…

Near Infrared Camera For James Webb Space Telescope

Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT], under a contract from the University of Arizona, has completed assembly and testing of the Near Infrared Camera (NIRCam) and has shipped the instrument to the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. NIRCam is the prime near-infrared imaging instrument for NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope (JWST).

The James Webb Space Telescope is NASA’s next-generation space observatory and successor to the Hubble Space Telescope. The most powerful space telescope ever built, JWST will observe the most distant objects in the universe, provide images of the very first galaxies ever formed, provide insight to how solar systems evolve and help explore planets around distant stars. The Webb telescope is a joint project of NASA, the European Space Agency, and the Canadian Space Agency…

Satellite business is recession proof thanks to exports

The scientists and engineers at Astrium, in Anchorage Park, Hilsea, are responsible to developing and building the ‘brains’ for every satellite.  Called the payload, it is the part that records data, takes pictures, beams television, broadband or radio signals back to Earth.  The payload was crated up and sent on its way to Toulouse in France, where it will be assembled, tested, shipped to French Guyana, tested again, and then launched into space.  This one will be providing people in the Far East with a television service similar to Sky in the UK.  Richard Peckham, strategy and business development director for Astrium in the UK, said so far the firm had avoided any effect from the recession.
