Measuring ethylene oxide in the atmosphere

Measuring ethylene oxide in the atmosphere

We measure ethylene oxide in the atmosphere using a readout instrument, which measures ethylene oxide and immediately provides accurate and detailed results. This makes it the ideal instrument for detecting leaks and seepage into the atmosphere.
The maximum concentration of ethylene oxide in the working atmosphere is regulated. Argentine legislation, per Resolution 102/08 of the Ministry of Work, Employment and Social Security (Law No. 19587) establishes the maximum permissible concentration (MPC) in working atmospheres as 1 ppm (for 8-hour work days).
International legislation (OSHA Regulations 06/04/88) establishes the 8-hour time weighted average permissible exposure limit (TWA/PEL) as 1 ppm and the short-term exposure limit (STEL) as 5 ppm.
INTI (National Institute of Industrial Technology) suggests that this be monitored quarterly if the ethylene oxide concentration is greater than 1 ppm, or biannually if it is between 0.5 and 1 ppm.

Calibrated instruments.

Immediate and accurate results. The report includes details on the instantaneous measurements and graphs for each observed period.

Quick detection of leaks and seepage into the atmosphere using a programmed alarm on the device that reports unexpected situations.

Does not entail any additional sample analysis costs.

Prevents sample tampering, proper conservation and transfer, which can affect the veracity of the results obtained.

Includes measuring ethylene oxide concentration for a short time period of 15 minutes (STEL) and for an 8-hour work day (TWA).

Delivers the final report within 48 hours of when the measurement was taken, in case of emergency.
