The 3M™ EO Abator is a highly effective device used to convert EO exhausted from a sterilizer airstream. It is designed exclusively for use with 3M™ Steri-Vac™ Sterilizer
Models 5XL and 8XL. The 3M EO abator uses an exothermic (heat producing) reaction to convert EO 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 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 Abator can be used with a maximum of two model 5XL or 8XL Sterilizers.
