POULTRY IRRADIATION
A high level of quality of life of the world's population depends, among other things, on high-quality food. The use of ionizing radiation technology to reduce the level of pathogenic microorganisms in poultry products creates conditions for the stable growth of the industry and ensures safety of food circulation.
The production processes of poultry meat carry a risk of contamination with bacteria such as E. Coli, Salmonella, Listeria and Wax bacillus, and other pathogenic microorganisms that cause foodborne diseases and lead to various infections.


Treatment technology by ionizing radiation (Electron beam and X-Ray)

Irradiation by electron accelerators uses high energy of electrons and X-rays to induce breaks in DNA of pathogens, and thus kill them.

The temperature of irradiated poultry products can vary from -32°C to +5°C. The products can be treated in any kind of packaging.
Results of poultry irradiation
The reduction of pathogenic micro-organisms helps to improve food safety and reduce production losses.

Irradiation is the only treatment option to process products in sealed packaging. This eliminates the possibility of repeat contamination and increases shelf life.

Treatment with ionizing radiation doesn't affect the cellular and molecular structure of poultry meat. Micro and macronutrients (vitamins, proteins, fats, amino acids) and minerals are retained.

Ionizing radiation treatment is the only technology that partially reduces the content of antibiotics and hormones in the product.

There is no residual radiation in the product after treatment
Poultry products that can be treated with ionizing radiation (Electron beam and X-Ray)
The module is designed for the installation within processing plants for irradiation of products packed in boxes, bags or pallets
Treatment costs:
Treatment costs depend on the electricity prices. The module consumes 450 kW/h of energy. An hourly throughput for treatment of poultry is equal to 100 MT (with a layer up to 50mm), and for treatment palletized products - up to 6 MT.
