Processing fruit with ionizing radiation
The evolution of ionizing radiation technology
Over 40 years in the world, the largest producers of fruit process their products with ionizing radiation, which eliminates pathogenic microorganisms, guarantees quality and prolongs its shelf life.

Currently, the world has formed the industry for processing products by ionizing radiation. In large cities, sterilization centers are located at a great distance, that's why sometimes manufacturers are forced to deliver their products even more than thousands of kilometers.

BeamComplex company has developed and manufactured compact sterilization complexes intended for placement inside of the enterprises.
The complex is designed for processing fruits and berries inside enterprises in boxes or on pallets
1. Complex for pallets sterilization
Advantages:
  • Possibility of processing in boxes of 1200 mm x 1200 mm x 1600 mm;
  • Sterilization on pallets that can be used for further transportation;
  • Possibility of processing in x-ray mode.

Technical Specification
The complex is a monoblock, and is ready for placement inside enterprises. It does not require additional construction work and can be integrated into the conveyor system of the enterprise. Sterilization takes place on pallets that are used in production. There is no need to reload products into special containers.

Equipment:
The complex consists of a capsule and radiation protection. The radiation protection into which the capsule is inserted can be made of metal or concrete.

Inside of the capsule :
1) electron accelerator (power 100 kW, energy 5 MeV)
2) integrated conveyor system
3) control system
4) radiation monitoring system
5) a cooling system (equipment depends on the ambient temperature in the region, the temperature regime of the processed products)
6) ozone ventilation system

Complex dimensions: 15m X 7.5 m X 6m (concrete radiation protection).
Electricity consumption: up to 450 kW / h, depending on the electron accelerator used. Power source: at least 600 kW. Power Consumption: 380V. AC Frequency: 50Hz.
The total area of the complex with concrete fencing is 350 m³.

Space requirements for the complex:
1. Ceiling height - from 7 m;
2. The area is from 500 m² (dimensions not less than 20m X 25m).



Complex for irradiation procressing of goods in containers
Advantages:
  • Processing products in 20- feet and 40-feet containers
  • Sterilization is carried out through the walls of the cargo container without the need to unload products

Complete set of a complex:
1) electron accelerator (power 100 kW, energy 5 MeV)
2) radiation protection
3) conveyor system
4) control system
5) radiation monitoring system
6) cooling system (equipment depends on the ambient temperature in the region, the temperature regime of processed products) 7) ozone ventilation system


Dimensions of the sterilization center with integrated complex: 30m X 20m X 8m, not less than 600m²
Electricity consumption: up to 600 kW / h. Power source: at least 750 kW.
Power Consumption: 380V.
AC Frequency: 50Hz.

For sterilization products in containers, they should not have refrigeration equipment. The temperature of sterilized products must be above 1 ° C


Complex for sterilization in the boxes
Advantages:
  • Possibility of processing in boxes of 1100mm x 500mm x 500mm;
  • Possibility of processing in X-ray and electron-beam modes;
  • High processing speed and high productivity;
  • Low processing cost (the ability to process products with a thickness of up to 50 mm in the electron beam mode).

Advantages of complex usage at the enterprises
Independence
---------------------------------
  • Complex can be operated at any time at your production area
  • The company gets independence from the companies that previously sterilized products
  • The complex works from the electrical grid and use electricity only at the time of sterilization of products (in contrast to the use of the Co-60 isotope, which dissolves energy constantly, even when the sterilization process is not ongoing).
Quality assurance
---------------------------------
  • Self-monitoring of sterilization process

Income growth
------------------------------------
  • Dramatically increase the safety and shelf-life of meat
  • Expand to new markets
  • Expanding production lines
  • Opportunity to process products for third parties
Decrease spending
---------------------------------
  • Reduce the cost related to delivery to other sterilization complexes
  • Complex cooling system can be used as a heating system of working areas
  • Complex can be used at night time with reduced electricity rate
  • Prevention of financial losses due to lack of claims on product quality
Consumer trust
---------------------------------
  • Consumers will choose your product because they will be confident in its quality.

Easy Implementation
---------------------------------
  • The module can be connected to the existing conveyor system
  • Installation does not require additional construction and does not affect the work processes
  • The module can be easily moved to desired location
According to a Hotpoint study, approximately one-third of all food production is either thrown away or wasted - in Europe alone, it is 88 million tons of food per year.

Ionizing radiation processing will increase the shelf life, provide quality assurance and make the fruit safe for consumers. The need to process fruit from insects and harmful microorganisms is an important task to increase export to provide high-quality products to people in all regions of the world.
Results
after fruit processing with
ionizing radiation
Processing fruits with ionizing radiation has a positive effect on the quality of products and provides a guarantee of safety.

Ionizing radiation treatment of fruit destroys insects and their larvae and reduces the number of pathogens.

After processing, the fruit maturation process stops, and this ensures an increase in storage time. Increasing the shelf life allows you to expand sales markets and increase export volumes, and sell up to 100% of products.

After treatment with ionizing radiation, the cellular and molecular structure of fruit does not change. Useful micro-and macronutrients vitamins remain in the fruit for the entire shelf life.

When processing fruit with our company's accelerators, the products are not contaminated with radiation. Many studies prove the safety of consuming products after processing.

During treatment with ionizing radiation, the DNA of pathogenic microorganisms is torn
Ionizing radiation technology

Accelerated electron processing is the use of electron energy and x-ray radiation (ionizing radiation) to kill pathogens in minced meat.

Temperature of processed products from -32 ° C to + 4 ° C

Principle of ionizing radiation operation:
An electron accelerator generates electrons and accelerates them to the speed of light; electrons penetrate the product it occurs DNA destruction of pathogenic microorganisms.

Accelerating electrons processing technology allowed to exclude outdated processing technology with chemicals or cobalt (Co-60).
