X-ray processing technology
Processing by accelerated electrons is the use of electron energy and x-ray radiation (ionizing radiation) to kill insects and their larvae, reduce pathogenic microorganisms, and stop the fruit ripening process.
When processing fruit, the temperature of the room with the complex should be from + 4 ° C to + 15 ° C. Temperature of processed products from -32 ° C to + 4 ° C
The principle of action of ionizing radiation:
An electron accelerator generates electrons and accelerates them to the speed of light; electrons penetrate the product; DNA destruction of insects and larvae, pathogenic microorganisms occurs.
Processing fruits with ionizing radiation makes it possible to exclude processing with chemicals. Stopping ripening allows you to increase shelf life, expand markets and increase export volumes.
