RSD, specialising in ethylene oxide sterilisation equipment, has gambled on the SEC Signature Dir sensors of the American company Sensor Electronics Corporation, taking care of all the process in order to get the ATEX Certification (Explosive Atmosphere normative), mandatory in Europe.
From now on, the European sterilisation equipment manufacturers and users that work on the ethylene oxide sterilisation process can count on this famous sensor, specially designed for EO applications.
Advantages of SEC Signature Dir sensors
This product is not new on the market – on the contrary, it has a long experience in the sector and is worldwide recognised for its state-of-the-art technology, as well as its reliable and accurate results.
Its main advantage is to be able to measure both the ethylene oxide concentration and the humidity level inside the autoclaves. This information is essential in the ethylene oxide sterilisation process that allows obtaining relevant data on the equipment operation and especially on the process.
Another important advantage that results from these two inputs previously mentioned, is the parametric release achievement. This point makes considerable savings for the users. It is important to highlight that the parametric release is a valorous operation in this sterilisation process as there is no need to wait for BI’s results, leading to time, money and space savings.
Also, those US made sensors, also called DUAL sensors, are manufactured with high-quality materials and using leading technologies to offer accuracy and reliability at an accessible price very reasonable.
ATEX Certification, now available for SEC Signature Dir sensors
The ATEX regulation is present in all countries of the EU to control the risks regarding explosive atmospheres that can exist in the facilities and equipment
It is mainly based on two European directives:
• 2014 / 34 / UE (former 94 / 9 / EU): for equipment should to be used in ATEX zones
• 1999 / 92 / EC: for the safety workers.
Until August 2019, these DUAL sensors couldn’t be used in European equipment and installations due to the lack of ATEX certification. For this reason, RSD decided to take care of all the analysis and tests to obtain this ATEX certification. From now on, the “SEC Signature Dir” sensors are ATEX certificated by the notified body “LOM” in Spain and fulfil the 2014 / 34 / UE regulation for equipment / machines for use in a potentially explosive atmosphere.
Now you can buy and use this DUAL Sensor with its ATEX certificate in European market without a problem through RSD Company.
Undoubtedly, great news for any company that sterilises their products with the ethylene oxide process.
RSD, the official importer in Europe of the SEC Signature Dir detector
Our company sells now the SEC Signature Dir sensors in Europe, coming from the US company Sensor Electronics Corporation, with the ATEX certification.
In addition to the sensor, we can also offer wide range options like signal converter, junction box, adapter, calibration gases and dedicated electrical cabinet.
Also, we offer to our clients the possibility of installing and programming the parametric release in their facilities with calibration services and training.
