FAO. National and regional programmes for food security:
Launched in 1994, the Special Programme for Food Security aims to decrease rates of hunger and malnutrition. This requires comprehensive action at national and regional levels.
Beamcomplex manufactures multifunctional complexes with electron accelerators.

The equipment is produced in containers. Such complex is a plug and play installation.
As it is a ready-to-install equipment, the use of such a complex reduces commissioning period and cost of a facility.
The complex has 4 MODULES (40ft containers):

MODULE 1 (radiation module) consists of:
- Electron Accelerator (5 MeV, 50/100 kW). Operation mode: E-beam/X-Ray
- Built-in Conveyor
- The module casing is filled with concrete at the site of installation.

MODULE 2 - Electronics
MODULE 3 - Accelerator's cooling and ventilation systems
MODULE 4 - Complex's control room

Construction Steps
  1. Quick installation of the modules on a prepared area inside a facility.
  2. Installing a formwork around the radiation module and filling it with concrete.
  3. Сonnection of all systems of the 4 modules to each other.
  4. Connection to an external cooling systems (chiller).
  5. Connection of an ozone exhaust system to an exhaust system outside the facility perimeter.
  6. Connection to the power supply and commissioning.
The complexes are equipped with various electron accelerators and conveyor systems under an order depending on a type of products to be processed.

The complexes are equipped with a receiving bin where cereals and legumes (rice, soybean, corn, wheat, etc.) as well as ready cereals (oatmeal, semolina, buckwheat, etc.) are delivered and processed by accelerated electrons.

The complexes are equipped with packaging lines. After processing, the cereals and legumes are packed into various packaging (in small polyethylene bags or 50 kg bags) on the packaging line, which is located in the complex in a sterile area.
HOW ARE PRODUCTS PROCESSED?
The complexes can be simultaneously equipped with 2 - 3 conveyor systems to irradiate products on pallets, in boxes, in bags, and in bulk in one layer.
Boxed and Palletized Products
Products in Bulk
Water Treatment

FOOD SECURITY

Implementation of food irradiation technologies contributes to food security programs worldwide and is essential for product quality assurance and maximum shelf life extension.
Irradiation offers a potential to enhance microbiological safety and quality of food through shelf-life extension
WHAT PRODUCTS FOR NATIONAL FOOD STOCKS ARE PROCESSED USING MULTIFUNCTIONAL COMPLEXES WITH ELECTRON ACCELERATORS?
  • Cereals, including rice, wheat, oat, rye, barley, and maize;
  • Pulses, including pea;
  • Various types of flour;
  • Sugar;
  • Meat and
  • Other food products.
WHERE MAY THE COMPLEXES BE INSTALLED?
At national food stocks

IS IT SAFE TO PROCESS PRODUCTS WITH IONIZING RADIATION?
