Description
 
Industrial ethylene oxide (EtO) is among the top 3% of high-vol. chemicals produced in the U.S. Industry has long recognized the value of safe, effective, and efficient sterilization using EtO. The health care and food industries depend on the EtO sterilization industry for sterile products. Oxidizing emission control devices (OECDs) are integrated into some sterilization systems. They remove or destroy small amounts of EtO remaining in a vent stream through oxidation or burning. The EtO concentration in the vent stream must remain well below the flammable or explosive range because OECDs provide a source of ignition that could trigger an explosion in the vent system. This report explains this problem and makes recommendations for protecting workers.
