For over 20 years in the world, the largest manufacturers of medical devices have sterilized their products from pathogenic microorganisms, bacteria and viruses by ionizing radiation. Specialists at the Texas Agrarian University not only sterilize products, but also conduct research on the safety of processed products for the end users.
The world has formed the industry for processing products by ionizing radiation. Sterilization centers are located in the large cities where products for sterilization are delivered from various enterprises. Sometimes manufacturers are forced to deliver their products even more than thousands of kilometers.
BeamComplex company presents a unique and compact complex, which is designed for installation in the production.
Complex for medical devices sterilization
The complex is a finished product intended for the destruction of pathogenic microorganisms, viruses and bacteria.
The complex is intended for installation at the enterprise or its proximity. Installation does not require stop of production line.
Maximum dimensions of the complex: 12m x 4m x 5.5m (metal shielding) 17m x 7.5m x 6.5m (concrete shielding)
The complete set of sterilization complexes includes: an electron beam accelerator, a shielding with radiation protection, an integrated conveyor system, a control and radiation monitoring system, cooling, ozone ventilation.
The complex set depends on the requirements of the buyer
BeamComplex can be equipped with various types of electron accelerators, based on the required performance. The parameters of the complexes depend on the model of the electron accelerator and vary to the following indicators:
Weight up to 23 tons
Electricity consumption up to 450 kW/hr
Results of medical devices sterilization with ionizing radiation
Complete elimination of pathogenic microorganisms, viruses and bacteria.
The only sterilization method in individually sealed packaging that prevents re-contamination.
Compared with Co-60 sterilization, the structure of the polymers of medical devices does not change with e-beam sterilization.
Products are ready for use immediately after processing.
After sterilization of medical devices at BeamComplex accelerators there is no residual radiation in the products. Numerous studies prove the safety of using medical devices after processing.
During the sterilization 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, viruses and microbes.
Temperature of processed products from 0C to +50°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).
