Compact complex for sterilization of products on pallets
About BeamComplex company
The BeamComplex group of companies was organized in 2010. After conducting research and studying trends in the market of sterilization services, the company started the production of compact sterilization complexes with local radiation protection for placement inside enterprices.

The effect of ionizing radiation
The electron accelerator in the complex generates and speeds up electrons, converting them into ionizing radiation. Processing ensures the sterility of the product or reducing the number of pathogenic microorganisms to the permitted levels. The radiation passes through the product or material without generating intense heat, disrupting cellular processes such as sprouting, ripening, or growth of microbes, parasites, and insects.
Complete sets of complexes

Electron Accelerator: energy 5 MeV, power 100 kW, working in X-ray mode
Radiation shielding: concrete or metal
Accelerator emergency shutdown system: triggered in case of emergency situations in which the electron accelerator is switched off in automatic as well as manual modes
Integrated conveyor system: speed is adjustable from 1 to 1500 mm/sec
Fire extinguishing system: triggered in case of emergency in which the electron accelerator is turned off and the fire extinguishing system is turned on in automatic as well as manual modes
Control system: dosimetry, conveyor speed control, electron accelerator control, fire extinguishing, cooling, ventilation and emergency shutdown



The unique design of local radiation protection of the complex is similar to the biological radiation protection used in nuclear submarines.

Advantages of using complex with local radiation protection when replacing Co-60

The majority of food and agricultural products treated by irradiation are processed in facilities using gamma radiation from cobalt-60 as the source of ionizing radiation. Gamma irradiation is a simple, robust and well-established technology. However, as cobalt-60 might become more difficult to obtain in the future, it is necessary to have other technologies ready to ensure the application of irradiation to food over the long term. Electron beam and X-ray machines employ electricity to generate ionizing radiation.

• Complexes provide non-stop sterilization process when switching from Co-60 to an electron accelerator. Thus, the company provides a guarantee of continuous operation when replacing Co-60 with an electron accelerator, which helps to eliminate the risk of customer loss that is provided with sterilization services.

• After the service life of the Co-60 isotope, it is switched to sterilization only by our complex. Before designing the internal conveyor of the complex, the company analyzes the existing transport system operating at the facility. For full docking and integration, the company offers to place either a universal complex (for processing products with package sizes up to 1100x500x500mm), or a complex for processing products on pallets (for processing products with package sizes up to 1200x1200x1600mm).

• After replacing the Co-60 isotope with an electron accelerator complex, there is no need to purchase the Co-60 isotope every 6 years.

• The possibility of using the thermal energy of the cooling system for heating or cooling all production premises.

• The possibility of using the complex during the preferential tariffs for the cost of electricity.
