VEGETABLES IRRADIATION

X-RAY AND EBEAM FOR VEGETABLES' TREATMENT
X-RAY RADIATION TECHNOLOGY
Electron accelerator uses high energy of X-Rays to destroy insect-pests, nematodes, their larvae, mould, fungus and other pathogens through all the product body. X-Rays affect biologically active elements of vegetables and inhibit growth and thus sprouting.

During the treatment process the produce is supplied into ionizing radiation zone on a conveyor system in bulk, in bags or on pallets.
Phytosanitary treatment of potato, onion, garlic and other vegetables with radiation to destroy insect pests, nematodes, pathogens, prolong storage period

Results of phytosanitary processing of vegetables with radiation

  • inhibition of sprouting
  • elimination of insects and their larvae
  • reducing the number of pathogenic microorganisms - rhizoctonia, phoma and wide spread phytopathogens affecting agricultural produce and causing the diseases like mycosis, phomosis, moulds, phytophthora, bacteriosis, etc.
  • after treatment the storage temperature can reach +20°C preserving the quality of products. That measurably helps to reduce the cost of storage.
  • storage period increases up to 8 months
  • maximum preservation of product weight
  • cellular and molecular structure of produce is not affected by irradiation
  • all nutrients and vitamins are retained for the entire product shelf life
  • no residual radiation in products after treatment
