(special thanks to PurSwab for guest blogging the content below!)

PurSwab 3690 Hydro entangled polyester fibers of the new PurSwab 3690 cleaning applicator from PurSwab® render it even softer and more absorbent than the well-known PurSwab 3677. Ultrasonically welded onto a flexible tip paddle handle, this applicator is low in NVR’s and is lint and residue free – as well as chemical resistant.

6” in length, it is a great tool for cleaning sensitive surfaces that are difficult to reach. The double-layer hydro entangled polyester tip provides superior absorbency with very low lint. The 3690 stands up to IPA, acetone and other solvents.

Use with confidence for all critical cleaning applications including coated optic surfaces when removing residues and particulates is especially important. Ideal device for surface testing and cleaning validation.

PurSwab Logo As environmental awareness continues to increase, both stateside and abroad, we like to give recognition to our vendors who go above and beyond the norm with environmentally conscious business practices. Today’s spotlight is on Puritan Medical Products, our manufacturer for PurSwab swabs.

Collaborating with organizations who promote sustainability and green initiatives such as GrowSmart Maine and Efficiency Maine, Puritan takes a bottom-up approach to protecting their natural assets locally. They choose to support wood harvesters and land owners who work with the following groups:

They are also working towards an FSC certification and an ISO 14001, an internationally recognized standard showing commitment to environmental standards and compliance with legislation.

Some other everyday green business practices include:

  • Encourage electronic ordering and payment options, reducing the need for the use of paper products
  • Use fluorescent and LED lighting, and wood waste boiler for heat to cut utility consumption
  • Recycle 100% of paper, corrugate material, glass, and metal waste
  • Packaging manufacturing facility runs on 100% renewable energy for all building heat, all hot water, and all process drying and steam conditioning
  • Purchased electricity is generated from ~10% renewable energy sources

This is just a sampling of all the steps Puritan is taking to become a greener company. Check out even more of their credentials!
