Jorgen Kruuse - Denmark
We have been producing pipe cleaners for unique applications for many years now, but uses don’t get more unusual than this one developed for Jorgen Kruuse, a Danish veterinary products supplier.
Kruuse use our pipe cleaners as teat plugs, little devices that are inserted into cows udders to stop bacteria from entering the teat canal during none lactating periods, which otherwise could cause infection. The product we supply to kruuse are 4mm bleached cotton and polyester flexistems with a galvanized wire core, this is for absorbency whilst having rot and corrosion proof properties.
