Laboratory unit for modifying organic materials using accelerated electrons

This laboratory unit is used for the modification and sterilization/disinfection of surfaces under atmospheric pressure using an electron beam.

The unit can be equipped with a variety of electron beam emitters (linear or scanned axial-type electron beam source) or a UV beam generator. Various transport modules allow the processing of 2-D and 3-D substrates as well as bulk goods.

The penetration/treatment depth depends on the selected beam source and varies from 10 … 200 µm.

Typical substrates

  • substrates with 2-D or 3-D geometry with dimensions of 400 × 400 × 200 mm up to max. 5.0 kg weight
  • bulk goods with particle sizes over 500 µm

Range of applications

  • curing of lacquers, coatings, layers on wood, plastic, metal, etc.
  • modification/crosslinking of polymer films, polymer surfaces, polymer granulates as well as fibers, fillers, and raw materials
  • germ reduction on the surfaces of raw materials and packaging
  • sterilization/disinfection of surfaces(e.g. for biomedical applications)
  • development, testing, evaluation, and maintenance of electron beam generators
