Air gun units with compressors are commonly used to dry cleaned surgical instruments especially those with lumens. I could not find clear guidelines on the air pressure to be provided by such units.

Hello,

I think there is no general recommendation for this purpose because it depends on the kind of medical device. Therefore the manufacturer should give a recommendation. So for instance some manufacturers of flexible endoscopes define a maximum pressure of 0,5 bar.

Hope this helps…
