Sterilisation that always does the job right
For sterilisation applications, the cold gas process – also known as the ethylene oxide process –provides clear advantages over other processes. Due to the low process temperature, the use of EO is far superior to other methods in terms of material compatibility – which means that it is ideally suited for the sterilisation of thermolabile products. Moreover, the controlled addition of heat can significantly reduce sterilisation time.
It is an extremely effective process for materials which are difficult to access, since the ethylene oxide gas is able to penetrate plastics and can also sterilise long and/or closed-end lumina.
Another advantage of the EO process is that it can even be used to sterilise whole pallets of products at one time. The ability to process complete lots makes the sterilisation process highly efficient.
