Presentation of Sterijet.
for Small Lots
placed in individual bags for processing. The Sterijet system
vacuums the air out of the bag, and injects 100% Ethylene
Oxide (EtO) before heat-sealing the bag. As the EtO gas
sterilizes the product, it diffuses out of the bag leaving
a vacuum-packed sterile product at the end of the aeration
cycle. Any compromise of package integrity will result in
loss of this vacuum-tight appearance making the Sterijet
package truly tamper evident.
Reduced Gas and Aeration
Sterijet is a
100% EtO System. Gas delivery is calibrated so that only
the precise amount needed to sterilize a given product is
injected into the package. Custom sizing of Sterijet Bags
for each product or family of products permits optimization
of gas use. Bags for Sterijet processing can be manufactured
in sizes from 4 inches up to 22 inches in width by any length.
No gas is wasted in filling an entire chamber.
Scalable as Your Business
Since the Sterijet
process does not require a pressure/vacuum chamber to accomplish
sterilization, adaptation of existing sites to a 100% EtO
operation is greatly simplified.
Processing capability can be expanded with additional aeration
rooms, which cost much less than the addition of traditional
Ethylene Oxide sterilization chambers
process results in a very low-concentration exhaust stream.
Andersen's economical high-volume abator uses a catalytic
process to scrub the EtO emissions 99.8% clean.
processor is equipped with a self-contained process-monitoring
system, which simplifies record keeping and tracking of
the sterilized packages. This system utilizes a thermal
mass-flow meter to measure the precise amount of EtO delivered
to each package. At the conclusion of each gas shot, a self-adhesive
label is printed with the:
- Lot number
- Package sequence number
- Injected EtO gram weight
The process data is compiled by the system and printed as
a report or stored for archive purposes.
Assistance And Training
will help you to determine the compatibility of Sterijet
with your products and accurately project the per-item
cost of sterilization. Whether you are planning a pilot
facility or a large-scale automated sterilization plant,
Andersen will assist you in establishing design criteria
process validation and statistical documentation procedures.
Training for sterilization and repair technicians can
be arranged either at your site or at the Andersen Products
facility in North Carolina. Maintenance contracts are
