Cleaning Validation Glossary


The ability to reduce a residue of a product to an acceptable level

Cleanability is how easy or difficult it is to remove a particular soil from equipment surfaces, typically after production. There are many factors in determining cleanability such as the material of construction, surface finish, and geometry of the equipment, and how the residue being cleaned behaves during drying and as its concentration increases. For example, a certain residiue may be a powder in small amounts however, overtime it may become hard and caked to equipment becoming more difficult to clean. Another aspect of cleanability is how a product degrades overtime, it is possible for a degradant to be more difficult to clean than the residue it originated from.
