The module is designed for radiation crosslinking of polyethylene cable. The module has built-in equipment that allows cross-linking of polymers simultaneously over the entire circumference. Thanks to the technology used, the uniformity of the dose obtained is guaranteed and, as a result, the uniformity of the crosslinked material.
Electron accelerator: energy 1 to 5 MeV, power from 20 kW to 100 kW, operates in E-beam mode.
Radiation shield: Depending on the premises area and technical requirements of the customer, different materials may be used for radiation shield: concrete or metal.
Ozone exhaust system: there are two possible options for removal of ozone: 1. an exhaust system into the atmosphere where it will decompose within minutes, and 2. ozone decomposition process with catalysts.
Emergency shutdown system: in case of any accidental event the electron accelerator will be switched off automatically.
In-built cable handling device: speed is adjustable and controlled remotely.
Fire safety system: triggered in emergency situations. Electron accelerator will be switched off and fire extinguishing system will be turned on, in automatic or manual mode.
Control system: dosimetry, conveyor speed control, electron accelerator control, fire extinguishing, cooling, ventilation and emergency shutdown of the accelerator.
Module dimensions:
2.5m x 2.5m x 5m (metal shielding)
4,5m x 4,5m x 5m (concrete shielding)
Electricity consumption: up to 450 kW per hour, depending on the electron accelerator installed
Module productivity: depends on the type of treated products
