ETO Gas Sterilization is performed between 30 °C to 60 °C. This process is very ideal for electronic components based equipments, plastic items, optical and electrical equipments.
Ethylene Oxide gas is used in this process. This gas being an alkylating substance, very effectively disrupts the DNA of harmful microorganisms, which averts them from reproducing further. Thus it can destroy most kinds of viruses, bacteria and fungi in addition to their spores and is suitable for most materials, even when repetitively used.
