CharacteristicsThe mixture, when released from the application cylinder to the atmosphere, is a colourless, toxic and flammable gas of a pleasant, etheric odour. Its toxicity is utilised in the process of sterilisation of medical utensils just after their production. The mixture is produced at our Olefins Expedition unit. The production process involves saturation of liquid ethylene oxide with gaseous carbon dioxide directly in the cylinder supplied by the customer. The process is carried out on a special automatic balance which guarantees achieving the desired composition of the mixture.
ApplicationsThe mixture is used for low-temperature sterilisation (at room temperature) of syringes, needles, plastic tubes and similar items made, in part or in whole, of plastics, at the manufacturer's premises.
