ETO Sterilization : FAQ’s

Krishna Engineering Frequently Asked Question (FAQ) pages serves to provide users with an answer to question that they have regarding ETO sterilization and its solutions. The Questions and answers are listed in categories below.

What is ETO?

  • ETO means Ethylene Oxide (Eto/EO) sterilization process.

What is Ethylene oxide (ETO) Processing?

  • Ethylene Oxide Sterilization is a chemical process consisting of four main variables, Gas concentration, Humidity, temperature, and time. EO is an alkylating agent that disrupts the DNA of microorganisms which prevents them from reproducing.

What is Ethylene Oxide Sterilization process?

    There are mainly 3 processing phases:-

  • Pre-conditioning:- The first stage of ETO sterilization where the preconditioning prepares the chamber environment which utilized to preheat and humidity products to predefined conditions. This will guarantee a repeatable EO sterilization process regardless to pre-preparing load condition.
  • Sterilization:- The offered processes stage particularly intended to give the required level of EO introduction to guarantee sterility for a gadgets group.
  • Aeration:- Aerations is the most important and longest part of the ETI sterilization cycle. Used to quicken out gassing of uncovered item stacks and to contain and dispose of leftover EO emanations to guarantee that its meet indicated cutoff points.

What gas is used for Sterilization?

  • ETO (Ethylene oxide) Sterilization is created in extensive volume and principal utilized as an intermediate in the generation of a few modern synthetic compounds the most outstanding compounds is Ethylene Glycol. As it’s likewise utilized as a fumigant in certain agricultural items and as a sterile for medical equipment and supplies.

What is used of ETO Sterilization?

  • Ethylene Oxide ETO Sterilization is mainly utilized to Sterilize medical and pharmaceutical products that cannot support high temperature steam cleaning for example gadgets that fuse electronic segments, plastic bundling, or plastic compartments.

What is temperature ETO Sterilization work?

  • Eto/EO Sterilization is a low-temperature process typically between 37˚ and 63˚C which uses Ethylene oxide gas to reduce the level of infectious agents.

What are the different types of Sterilization?

    Sterilization is highly used in the medical and pharmaceutical industries. The different types of Sterilization are:-

  • Steam Sterilization
  • Eto/EO Sterilization
  • Dry heat Sterilization

What are the advantages of ETO Sterilization?

    Advantages of ETO Sterilization are:-

  • Easy to operate
  • Low temperature
