IONIZING RADIATION TECHNOLOGY
FOR SEAFOOD TREATMENT
Irradiation by electron accelerators uses high energy of electrons and X-rays to eliminate pathogens, bacteria, helminths.
Working principle of electron accelerator: Electron accelerator generates and accelerates electrons to high speeds, penetrating the product, and induce breaks in the DNA of pathogens.
The temperature of irradiated seafood can vary from -32°C to +4°C. The products can be treated in any kind of packaging. No residual radiation left in the product as the treatment done with low irradiation doses.
