Ethylene Oxide (ETO) Sterilization

We are leading manufacturer and supplier of ETO Sterilizers in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India. We are manufacturing the best quality products with the use of qualified raw materials and latest technologies. ETO is a colorless gas that is flammable and explosive. Four important parameters (functional limits): gas absorption (450 to 1200 mg / L); Temperature (37 to 63 C); Relative humidity (40 to 80%) (Water molecules carry ETO to reaction sites); And exposure time (1 to 6 hours). These affect the effectiveness of ETO sterilization.

Within certain limits, an increase in gas concentration and temperature may reduce the time required to achieve sterilization. The use of ETO arose when there were some alternative ways to sterilize medical devices sensitive to heat and humidity; However, favorable properties (Table 6) contribute to its continued widespread use. Large-capacity, tank-supplied sterilizers are available in two ETO gas compounds to replace ETO-chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) compounds. The ETO-carbon dioxide (CO2) compound contains 8.5% ETO and 91.5% CO2.

This compound is less expensive than ETO-hydro chlorofluorocarbons (HCFC), but one drawback is the need for rated pressure vessels for vapor sterilization because higher pressures (28-psi gauge) are required. The other compound that is a drop-in CFC alternative is ETO mixed with HDFC. HCFCs affect the Earth’s ozone layer about 50 times less than CFCs. The EPA will begin regulating HCFC in 2015 and cease production in 2030. Both companies offer ETO-HCFC compounds as an alternative to CFC-12; One compound contains 8.6% ETO and 91.4% HCFC, the other compound contains 10% ETO and 90% HCFC.872. Compressed composite gas is 100% ETO as an alternative to ETO systems. 100% ETO sterilizers using unit-dose cartridges eliminate the need for outdoor tanks.
