Ethylene oxide is gas sterilization. In domestic and foreign operations, atmospheric emission is preferred.
The atmospheric emission of ethylene oxide gas shall comply with certain technical standards: there must be a special exhaust pipe system, and the exhaust pipe material must be ethylene oxide which cannot be penetrated through, such as copper pipe, etc. There shall be no inflammables and building air inlets such as doors or windows within 7.6m from the exhaust port; if the vertical part of the exhaust pipe is longer than 3m A water collector must be installed to prevent the exhaust pipe from sinking or looping to cause water gas accumulation or freezing in winter and block the pipe; the exhaust pipe shall be led to the outside and turned downward at the outlet to prevent water gas from remaining on the pipe wall or causing pipe wall blockage; professional installation engineer must be invited and the installation shall be carried out according to the requirements of ethylene oxide sterilizer manufacturer.
Precautions of Sterilizer Cabinet
1. Ethylene oxide is inflammable and explosive, so it is very important to ensure safety. Therefore, the sterilization workshop should be equipped with fire prevention measures. In addition, no smoking, no other open fire, and keep the workshop ventilated.
2. Ethylene oxide is toxic to some extent. If the human body inhales too much at one time, it will have discomfort, even headache, vomiting and other toxic phenomena. In case of the above phenomenon, leave the site quickly and breathe fresh air in the open and cool place until the symptom is eliminated. For example, the human skin and eyes are exposed to ethylene oxide
3. The water in the water circulation system shall be replaced regularly. Replace the waste water in the waste gas treatment system regularly.
Ethylene oxide, as a main low-temperature sterilization technology, has been used in the sterilization of heat and humidity sensitive materials since 1950s. In China, more than 56% of medical devices, including industrial sterilization, are sterilized by ethylene oxide, and the proportion is still increasing year by year. So far, according to incomplete statistics, there are 11000 medical institutions in the world. As a pioneer of ethylene oxide low-temperature sterilization technology, it has long provided ethylene oxide sterilizers and related products and services for the market.
Application scope of ethylene oxide sterilization
Ethylene oxide does not damage the sterilized articles and has strong penetration, so most articles that are not suitable for general sterilization can be sterilized and sterilized with ethylene oxide. For example, electronic instruments, optical instruments, medical devices, fur, cotton, chemical fiber, plastic products, endoscopes, dialyzers and disposable medical supplies. Ethylene oxide is one of the most important low temperature sterilization methods.
