For over 25 years E-BEAM Services has combined the advantages of electron beam irradiation with unmatched operational excellence and technical expertise to deliver fast, quality-driven, reliable, and comprehensive e-beam solutions.
The process involves accelerating a beam of electrons to near light speed where it passes through a scan chamber and transitions to a curtain of electrons. Materials moving through the chamber on a variety of conveying systems are showered with these high-energy electrons, which penetrate the material with a precise, predetermined dose.
The e-beam is able to sterilize medical devices and pharmaceutical products, crosslink plastics in a variety of forms such as parts, wire and cable, sheet product, tubing as well as modify polymers in resin form to improve their properties. The e-beam for many materials results in less material degradation than with gamma irradiation.
With more than 500kW of installed accelerator capacity at its three processing facilities, E-BEAM Services has the capacity to deliver on your irradiation needs.
