EO cylinder management system

To streamline the management and supply of the gas required for sterilisation processes, we devised and designed anĀ automated control and tracking system.

The system continuously monitors the state of the cylinders and the amount of gas they contain and can generate an alert when the material is running low to anticipate replenishment.

You can continuously control the flow of gas and avoid production downtime.

How it works

Once the cylinders are loaded into the control platform, the operator connects them and links each unique ID to a specific selected valve.

This system enables precise tracking of any errors or malfunctions and makes it possible to trace the origin of the gas.

The system’s ingenuity lies in its automatic switching capability

When an EO gas cylinder is empty, the software switches the feed line to the next one. The system thereby avoids direct operator intervention, production downtime stoppages and interruptions of the sterilisation cycle.

The automated cylinder management system can also be added to third-party installations subject to feasibility assessment.
