With more than 500kW of installed accelerator capacity at our three processing facilities,
E-BEAM Services has the capacity and redundancy to deliver on your sterilization needs.

How it Works:

The e-beam is able to penetrate medical devices and pharmaceutical products in their final shipping containers. The e-beam inactivates microorganisms either by causing microbial death as a direct effect of the destruction of a vital molecule or by an indirect chemical reaction. Advanced electronics precisely control the use of electrons in the sterilization of medical devices. For many materials, e-beam processing results in less material degradation than with gamma irradiation.

The process involves accelerating a beam of electrons to near light speed where it passes through a scan chamber where it transitions to a curtain of electrons. Materials moving through the chamber on a high-speed conveyor system are showered with these high-energy electrons, which penetrate the material with a precise, predetermined dose.
