Title (EN) METHOD FOR CLEANING A LUMEN
(FR) PROCEDE DE NETTOYAGE DE LUMIERE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A method and apparatus for removing soil from an inner surface of a lumen wall of a medical instrument are disclosed. A carrier gas entrains particles capable of sublimation at room temperature and transports the particles into and through the lumen. As the particles collide with the soil attached to the inner surface of the lumen wall, and as the particles sublime, the soil is removed from the inner surface of the lumen wall and transported out an exit of the lumen.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un procédé et un appareil permettant de retirer des impuretés d'une surface intérieure de paroi de lumière d'un instrument médical. Un gaz porteur entraîne des particules à capacité de sublimation à température ambiante et transporte ces particules dans la lumière et à travers celle-ci. Lorsque les particules entrent en collision avec des impuretés fixées à la surface intérieure de la paroi de la lumière, et lorsque les particules sont sublimées, des impuretés sont retirées de la surface intérieure de la paroi de la lumière et transportées vers l'extérieur par une sortie de la lumière.
