HOW OUR ABATORS WORK
Andersen EO abators are a simple, cartridge-based system that employ a dry catalyst resin. Resin converts ethylene oxide to biodegradable organic compounds.
The abator removes more than 99% of the EO in the exhaust stream, resulting in a fraction of a gram of total EO emissions over the course of a multi-hour cycle. This tiny amount of EO is vented to the outside where it disperses rapidly, quickly becoming undetectable. Effectively making the process zero emission.
Each replaceable cartridge lasts 200 sterilization cycles. Spent cartridges are non-hazardous and may be discarded in most landfills or returned to Andersen for disposal.
Installation is simple. The abator attaches easily to all new Anprolene and EOGas 4 sterilizers.
