Using ionizing radiation technology to process fish and seafood you ensure careful use of all gifts that are generously provided by our Earth!
Processing of fish and seafood with ionizing radiation
For more than 20 years in the world, the largest producers of fish and seafood process their products from pathogenic microorganisms with ionizing radiation. Specialists at the University of Texas not only process products but also conduct research on the safety of processed products for the end-user.
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.
Our BeamComplex company has developed and launched the production of compact monoblock sterilization complexes intended for placement in the enterprise or in close proximity to manufacturers.
Complex for fish and seafood processing
The complex is a monoblock and a finished product designed to destroy pathogenic microorganisms, ensure the safety and extend the shelf life of fish and seafood.
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 Productivity (depends on the type of processed fish and seafood): E-beam mode - up to 150 tons/hr X-ray mode - up to 10 tons/hr
The accelerated electron processing technology is only a tool. Our main purpose is to minimize losses and provide the maximum number of people on Earth with safe products.
Results of fish and seafood processing with ionizing radiation
The reduction of pathogenic micro-organisms helps to improve food safety and reduce production losses.
The only way to process products in sealed packaging eliminates the possibility of re-seeding and increase shelf life. The increase in sales allows you to sell up to 100% of products and allow to get a greater volume of export.
After treatment with ionizing radiation, the cellular and molecular structure of fish and seafood does not change. Useful micro and macro elements (vitamins, proteins, fats, amino acids) remain for the entire storage period.
In growing seafood and fish in artificial ponds, feeding occurs with the addition of antibiotics. Ionizing radiation treatment is the only technology that partially reduces the content of antibiotics and hormones in the product.
After processing fish and seafood with BeamComplex there is no residual radiation in the product left.
Many studies prove the safety of 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 fish and seafood.
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).
Today, every enterprise for the production and processing of fish and seafood seeks to apply the latest technology. The quality of fish and seafood should be of the highest level since the health of consumers depends on this.
According to statistics from the World Health Organization (WHO), 10 out of 32 most common types of food poisoning in the world caused by helminths.
