    • Converts EO to carbon dioxide and water with up to 99.9% efficiency.

    The 3M™ EO (ethylene oxide) Abator Model 50 is an EO (ethylene oxide) emission control system for 3M Steri-Vac Sterilizers.

    The 3M™ EO (ethylene oxide) Abator is a highly effective device used to convert EO (ethylene oxide) exhausted from a sterilizer airstream. It is designed exclusively for use with 3M™ Steri-Vac™ Sterilizer Models 5XL and 8XL. The 3M EO (ethylene oxide) abator uses an exothermic (heat producing) reaction to convert EO (ethylene oxide) exhaust into CO2 and water vapor. At normal operating temperatures and concentrations, conversion efficiency is 99.9+%* – virtually eliminating emissions of EO to the environment! The 3M EO (ethylene oxide) Abator includes an enclosed catalyst bed, air heater, fan and all controls necessary for complete operation. The estimated life of the catalyst is three years, based on average use of 310 cycles per year. The unit comes complete, ready for installation and connection to the building utility service lines and sterilizer exhaust. Each EO (ethylene oxide) Abator can be used with a maximum of two model 5XL or 8XL Sterilizers.
