After sterilization with ethylene oxide (EO), gas may not be freely released into the atmosphere; therefore, a gas treatment unit needs to be interconnected. This allows you to professionally treat the generated amounts of EO in accordance with the requirements of the German TA-Luft guideline (EO <= 0.5 mg/m3).
STERISYS offers different gas treatment units depending on the dimension of the system and the sterilization process:
- Electrical- or gas-operated catalyst, if necessary combined with a peak shaver (water buffer tank);
- scrubber system;
- gas combustion unit.
Together with you, we determine which gas treatment unit suits your system.
We always comply with the latest standards and guidelines, and design your gas treatment unit according to them.
Our advanced technologies allow you to significantly reduce emissions of ethylene oxide pollutants.
Our control process provides constant operating conditions for the catalyst in terms of flow rate and EO concentration.
