EtO is everywhere – in the news, on the minds of the community, and at the forefront of regulators attention.
Are you ready for the increased compliance challenges?
Why is everyone talking about ethylene oxide (EtO)? According to recent scientific studies, EtO is a more dangerous carcinogen than previously thought. Results from the latest National Air Toxics Assessment (NATA) have made EtO an increased focus of concern for the EPA and state regulators. For sterilization companies, this understandably makes you concerned about the safety of your employees and community, as well as your reputation.
In many cases, the traditional abatement technologies such as wet scrubbers and dry sorbents cannot meet the new EtO destruction requirements.
How does your abatement strategy measure up? How do you ensure that your abatement technology is up-to-date and meeting compliance requirements? With so much to lose, why take the risk with an unproven supplier?
A Proven EtO Abatement Equipment Design
Catalytic Oxidizers are one of the most widely accepted control technologies available to control VOC emissions from the EtO sterilization processes. Combining our flagship catalytic oxidizer with a peak shaver, Anguil’s EtO abatement systems have helped clients achieve greater than 99% destruction efficiency and limited EtO concentrations to under one part-per-million by volume.
Anguil systems ensure zero leakage of EtO from the oxidizer and safe operation by integrating the peak shaver, a packed tower counter-flow water scrubber that absorbs ethylene oxide gas into the water by ensuring a high contact area between the gas and the water, preventing unsafe, high concentration conditions.
Sterilizers cannot afford to take the risk on an unproven company. We are proud of our reputation in the industry and our solutions that help ensure safer communities and sterilization operations.
ANGUIL SYSTEM DESIGN FEATURES
