Ethylene Oxide Detection

Ethylene Oxide poses a serious risk to worker safety. It is an extremely toxic breathing hazard and potentially highly explosive. Ethylene Oxide plants have many processing areas such as cracking furnaces, compression areas, cold box, acid gas removal areas, and distillation and separation facilities. All of these areas should be monitored appropriately and continuously for worker safety. Due to the many layers of risk surrounding Ethylene Oxide, it is imperative to have appropriate gas detection selection in order to keep employees safe.

With a logging rate of every one minute of Min, Max and Average, you have the ability to collect and plot data over time for trend and data analysis. With this top of the line feature, and user friendly setup and configuration, our products are ideal for large or small Ethylene Oxide applications and facilities. 

Monitoring Gas During Ethylene Oxide Sterilization

The Ethylene Oxide sterilization process is used to sterilize more than 50% of worldwide medical devices. EtO is the primary gas used for sterilizing medical devices that can't undergo sterilization with steam. EtO sterilization has become even more important over the last year during the COVID-19 pandemic because of the use of medical swabs for continued COVID-19 testing.

The rush for more available testing around the world means a rush for swab production and sterilization. In order to meet the demanding needs lab workers and warehouse workers were producing and delivering these swabs around the clock. As this work is imperative to our nation, It is also imperative that proper gas detection is in place at these various meidcal facilities in order to protect the workers from exposure to toxic levels of Ethylene Oxide. 

Our line of SenSmart detectors will keep your workers safe on the job throughout the EtO sterilization process.
