Leading Brands Choose ChemDAQ
The food and beverage packaging industry uses a mix of both PAA and H₂O₂ to kill any harmful bacteria and extend product shelf life. First, food and beverage containers are doused with PAA and then caps and lids are dipped in high concentrations of Hydrogen Peroxide. This common method exposes workers to not one, but two toxic chemicals. With risks and hazards doubled, a continuous monitoring solution will proactively protect workers and ensure your entire facility is safe.
With so many points of potential PAA and H₂O₂ exposure throughout food and beverage packaging operations, chemical vapor monitoring provides a solution to gather real-time vapor readings–-protecting workers and providing data needed to make necessary adjustments to ensure plant operations continue.
The E-Cell sensor features ChemDAQ’s proprietary Spot-On™ filter technology to reduce interference and precisely measure chemical vapor levels for PAA and H₂O₂. Unlike other suppliers, ChemDAQ’s sensors are calibrated with PAA and H₂O₂ test gas to ensure top safety and performance.
ChemDAQ’s Steri-Trac 2 area monitor connects to air handling systems to control both ventilation and air extraction based on PAA and H₂O₂ exposure levels. This fixed monitoring system can also be installed in potential hot spot areas throughout your plant to keep workers safe around-the-clock and alert you if and when hazardous vapor levels for either chemical occur.Learn More

Medical devices sterilized with EtO are then shipped to their final destination and may continue to off-gas for days. During transport, EtO accumulates in trucks and continues to off-gas once held in storage facilities, accumulating emissions that can often exceed OSHA's permissible exposure limit.
