E-beam radiation is a form of ionising energy that is characterised by its low penetration and high dose rates.
As a product or material passes under the beam, energy from the electrons is absorbed. This absorbed
Energy alters various chemical and biological bonds within the product/material and, like gamma radiation,
Prevents microorganisms from reproducing.
When compared with gamma, E-beam radiation offers several distinct advantages:
1 The need to transport radioactive materials around the country is eliminated.
2 The processor can be turned off when not in use. Cobalt, the main source for gamma technology, emits radiation at all times.
3 Because the electron beam is tightly focused and moves rapidly across the product, process times
Are shorter and plastic materials such as those used in medical devices are not significantly altered.
Flexible High Energy Beam
E-beam accelerators range in energies from 3 MeV to 12 MeV (million electron volts) and usually operate
At a single energy level. By utilising the latest in technology, the accelerator is able to
Operate at varying energies to optimise product penetration. At the same time, the beam can be altered
To accommodate cartons of various widths and the conveyor speed managed to allow the most precise
Application of dose.
