Free webinar: Non-flammable fluid solutions for liquid cooling and precision cleaning in the MedTech Industry on June 8th, 2022 at 10:30 am CET

  • Non-flammable fluid solutions for liquid cooling and precision cleaning

    Registration form

    In the MedTech industry you rightly demand precision, reliability and safety at every stage of development and manufacturing. Key applications such as heat transfer and ultrasonic cleaning therefore need a safe and sustainable agent to ensure that high-tech medical devices, such as implants, medicines, and vaccines, are not compromised. High purity 3M™ Novec™ Engineered Fluids have no flash point, so they offer a safe and reliable solution for a range of medical applications. They also have low toxicity and a favourable environmental profile, with a short atmospheric lifetime, and are inherently non-ozone depleting.

    High performing dielectric heat transfer fluids are ideal for liquid cooling applications, including clinical diagnostics, lyophilization (freeze drying) and cold storage, as they have low viscosity, enabling a good flow at temperatures down to -138°C. They offer a broader operating range and lower flow channels than aqueous or oil-based cooling systems. Furthermore, Novec is easily detectable which is important for quality assurance, for example to find fluid leaks in a process vessel.

    Versatile 3M Novec liquids can also be used as a precision cleaning agent for medical devices. The fluid easily penetrates tight spaces on complex parts due to a combination of low surface tension and low viscosity and removes all traces of dirt, grease and contaminants, without leaving any residue. Unlike aqueous solutions, fast-drying 3M Novec fluids don't support biological growth and are less equipment and energy-intensive.

    What you will learn in this session:

    • Introduction of 3M Novec fluids used for liquid cooling applications such as clinical diagnostics, lyophilization (freeze drying) and cold storage
    • Properties of Novec heat transfer fluids and why they are ideal for these applications
    • Why you should choose 3M Novec fluids for heat transfer over alternative offerings
    • Introduction of 3M Novec fluids used for vapour degreasing equipment and ultrasonic cleaning processes
    • Environmental profile of 3M Novec fluids
    • Key industries including best practices where 3M Novec fluids can be used for heat transfer and cleaning applications: Life Sciences, Pharmaceuticals, Biotechnology, Medical Devices and Chemical Processing

    The webinar will be held in English language and after the presentation there will be an interactive Q&A session.

    The presenters:

    Catherine Sol, EMEA Product Marketer for Novec fluids at 3M, holds a degree in Chemical Engineering and has been working in Fluoro Chemicals at 3M for eight years.

    Rudi Van San, EMEA Application Engineer for Novec fluids at 3M is the co-presenter of the webinar. Rudi has a degree in chemical engineering, and he has 30 years of experience with 3M Electronics, focusing on Novec fluids.
