Why Peracetic Acid is Better than Steam Sterilization


Steam sterilization generates a large amount of heat and moisture, so its application is limited to products and components that can stand up to those often-harsh conditions. Steam sterilization is clean in the sense that it leaves no residuals, but it also requires a significant available water source and large amount of energy to heat the water.

By contrast, REVOX VPA is unique for its room temperature, peracetic acid (PAA) based process, which provides the highest sterility assurance levels (SAL) for the broadest range of in-line efficiency applications. With JUST-IN-TIME sterilization, REVOX VPA facilitates better lean manufacturing and on-site quality control.
