Protecting staff from the risk of peracetic acid exposure

Peracetic acid (PAA) is used for sterilisation because of its effectiveness in killing bacteria and microbes. However, it is also a high strength oxidant and is dangerous to all living cells.

The best way to ensure safety of staff working in these departments is to monitor and alarm where levels exceed that of the exposure guidelines, by using fixed or portable detection with reliable and accurate PAA sensors

The ATi H10-51 Peracetic Acid smart vapour sensor can be used for the detection of PAA vapour in ambient air. It is used in conjunction with ATi’s Model D16 PortaSens lll portable leak detector or F12/D fixed, toxic gas monitor. The F12D (PAA) monitor is a continuous detector that can be positioned anywhere in a room to alarm if safe limits are hit. The system uses a ‘vapour’ sensor that requires an annual replacement with no calibration from the customer. The system can be used independently with options for connectivity to an existing central/fire alarm system. The ATi fixed monitor has a built-in data logging facility for historical data capture and gives ‘peace of mind’ to the health and safety staff that all stakeholders are protected with alerts or if limits are exceeded.
