Emission monitoring system with low parts-per-billion detection of ethylene oxide (EO)

May 21 2020 Read 952 Times

Ethylene Oxide (EO) is used in the manufacture of a wide range of consumer chemicals. It is also used by hospitals and the medical equipment industry as a sterilising agent for heat sensitive instruments and equipment.

MAX Analytical Technologies has recently introduced the EMS-10™/eo, a fully automated, FTIR-based gas and emissions monitoring system capable of accurately analysing gas streams for EO down to low parts-per-billion levels with rapid, sequential measurements – Even in the presence of interfering compounds that cannot be differentiated using traditional technologies such as gas chromatography.

The EMS-10™/eo FTIR analyser features the proprietary MAX StarBoost™ technology which specifically enhances the systems performance for EO measurement over its calibration range of 0-50 ppm. The system also includes a variety of other proprietary technologies that ensure EO readings are very stable and remain unaffected by zero drift and bias that can occur in continuous monitoring situations.

Integrated into the system is a heated sampling pump that allows the EMS-10™/eo to handle hot and wet samples, making it ideal for monitoring a wide range of stationary emission sources.

MAX Analytical can provide complete factory EO monitoring solutions including ambient air monitoring, sample probes, heated lines and ATEX compliant enclosures.
