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.
ETO means Ethylene Oxide (Eto/EO) sterilization process.
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.
There are mainly 3 processing phases:-
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.
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.
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.
Sterilization is highly used in the medical and pharmaceutical industries. The different types of Sterilization are:-
Advantages of ETO Sterilization are:-
