Electron Beam Accelerator – Cold Pasteurization
Sor-Van specializes in industrial applications of ionizing radiation and providing radiation services to the medical industry, research institutes, and hospitals. Sor-Van operates an electron beam accelerator which is considered to be the most modern of its kind in the sterilization field.
This is an innovative technology called "cold pasteurization" that uses an electron beam accelerator (E-Beam). This technology is gaining momentum worldwide, due to the fact that the process is significantly faster than gamma irradiation, minimizes damage to sensitive materials, and uses electricity instead of a radioactive source.
Today, Sor-Van operates a 5 million electron [MeV] volt accelerator.
The company is able to conduct initial feasibility tests within its research and development framework and, in coordination with customers, define a process for ongoing product handling that meets the various required standards.
