In hospitals, the Sterilisation Processing Departments can be heavily occupied with high-level sterilisation and disinfection devices.  Monitoring the breathing environment near this sort of equipment is essential, as Ethylene Oxide poses a number of health risks and the need to monitor is well established.

Chemical Air Monitoring for Ethylene Oxide

Ethylene Oxide (EtO or EO) is used in the production of various products and for :-

  • Disinfection
  • Sterilisation
  • Fumigation

However, the challenge with ethylene oxide chemical air monitoring is that the gas detectors utilise electrochemical sensors that may also respond to a wide range of other gases, alcohols and chemicals, which can be common interferents.


Solving the Challenge whilst maintaining Safety

Spot-On® is a chemical filter, developed by ChemDAQ, supplied in Australia and New Zealand by Gallay.  The Spot On® filter was specifically developed to filter out these common interferents.  By reducing false alarms, the Steri-Trac Ethylene Oxide chemical air monitoring system can accurately display real-time EtO readings and alarms when exposure levels are too high.  You can then take action, allowing you to keep your employees and teams safe.


Continuous and Real-Time

The Steri-Trac® continuous, real-time Ethylene Oxide chemical air monitoring system :-

  • Measures environmental vapour concentrations in PPM (parts per million)
  • Provides continuous monitoring (all day/evening) with real-time (immediate) response alarms
  • Gives accurate and reliable detection below Occupational Exposure Limits
  • Allows for simple integration to already present monitoring & control systems


Easy Sensor Calibration / Exchange Plan

Gallay sends you a new, fully calibrated sensor; 3 times per year

  • Easily remove the old sensor and replace with the new one
  • Program reduces cost and downtime associated with in-house servicing
  • Ensure ongoing accurate and reliable system operation


Electronic Data Collection and Storage Options

The ChemDAQ® data acquisition software (DAQ) allows you to :-

  • Collect and record your exposure levels for review and regulation compliance
  • Continuously calculates average exposure (15 minute and 8 hour recordings)
  • Advise of impending alerts to provide warnings before Occupational Exposure Limits (OEL’s) are reached
  • Central display collects together all gases monitored, into one source/location
