FUNCTION OF ETO STERILIZER

The chief function of an ETO Sterilizer is to sterilize substances that are sensitive to heat and moisture. An E.T.O Gas Sterilizer carries out sterilization in three special phases :

Pre Conditioning Phase : The substance that needs to be sterilized is subjected to a warm, humid setting for at minimum 12 hours making sure the uniformity in its temperature and humidity.

Exposure Phase : In this phase, the Vacuum is pulled as well as ETO gas is let in. The material is subjected to gas for 4-8 hours, typically. During the progression the RH is maintained at approximately 70% and the temperature at 55 °C.

Post Conditions Phase : The ETO gas is eliminated by repetitively pulling a vacuum and then bringing in air into the sterilization chamber till the ETO gas is completely evacuated.
