    Electron beam (E-Beam) irradiation is a form of ionizing energy that is characterized by its low penetration and high-dosage rates. The beam – a concentrated, highly charged stream of electrons – is generated by accelerators capable of producing continuous or pulsed beams. As the product/material being sterilized passes the E-Beam, energy from the electrons is absorbed, altering various chemical bonds, damaging the DNA, and destroying the reproductive capabilities of the microorganisms. Sterigenics provides a portfolio of high-energy electron accelerators for industrial applications including the IMPELA(R) accelerator.

    Best Suited For

    • Low-density, uniformly packaged products
    • Polymer modification
    • Cross-linking/branching
    • Semiconductor enhancement
    • Customized dose ranges
    • Biologics and tissue

    Key Benefits

    While most materials manufactured for use in sterile health care products are formulated for radiation stability, some materials – certain polypropylenes, for example – experience less breakdown and long-term aging effects as a result of E-Beam’s shorter exposure time. Other benefits include:

    • High-Speed, High-Capacity Accelerators
      Sterilizes low-density, uniformly packaged products quickly and effectively
    • Dosimetric Dosing
      Eliminates post-sterilization testing and expedites distribution logistics
    • Material Modification
      E-Beam processing can be used to modify polymers, improve semiconductor switching speeds, and change or enhance many other material properties
