Controlling spending on cleaning products– 7-Jun-2012
Dedicated cleanroom cleaning equipment and products account for a large proportion of cleanroom running costs and this spend is steadily increasing year on year. The challenge is reducing consumable costs while upholding environmental standards that maintain yield levels and do not create final product issues: invariably, the higher the cost, the lower the number of particles and fibres a wipe will generate. One cost reduction strategy is to move from single use to reusable items that can be laundered or resterilised or both. Another is to change to a supplier that promote itself as either a manufacturers selling direct or as a distributor handling large volumes of product at lower selling prices
