Capacity vs Agility

Last summer, my neighbor loaded up his RV for a two-week long family vacation. They were going out West to see the great national parks. I couldn’t help but think, though, that I would rather have my other neighbor’s speedy roadster when driving through the twisting mountain passes. It seems you give up agility and […]

At home with electrons

At this point, if you’ve read through a number of our blog entries you might be thinking, “Okay, this electron beam thing is REALLY cool, but I’m not a medical device manufacturer or a resin supplier, so it doesn’t really affect me.” In actuality, you might be surprised to learn that products modified by electron […]

Capacity in two flavors

I have been asked a number of times how much available capacity we have. Here’s my usual answer: I have yet to see a customer’s capacity need that we couldn’t handle! Part of that ability is due to E-BEAM’s commitment to stay ahead of the demand curve by adding capacity (by upgrading our current facilities, […]

How Does the Electron Beam Sterilization Process Work?

The electron beam sterilization process begins with an electron beam accelerator. E-BEAM Services uses high power state of the art accelerators to create a powerful beam of electrons. The beam is scanned back and forth to create a curtain of fast electrons, which shower and safely ionize the materials that they strike. There is no […]

Cold Sterilization is an E-BEAM Specialty

Sometimes customers have a special sterilization challenge–and e-beam sterilization provides the solution. For example, I recently worked with a customer whose product needs to stay refrigerated, but not frozen. The product degrades over time, and degrades even faster at higher temperatures. However, it is destroyed if it goes below freezing. E-BEAM cold sterilization with refrigeration […]
