Irradiation Facilities

Multipurpose Irradiation Facility
IrradiationFacilities
Purpose:

The PNRI operates a multipurpose gamma irradiation facility which can be used for the following applications:

1.  reduction of microbial load or decontamination of spices, herbal products and dehydrated vegetables, and cosmetic raw materials and accessories

2.  sterilization of single-use, disposable medical devices

3.  sprout inhibition of onions, garlic, and potatoes

4.  quarantine treatment of fruits and vegetables

5.  elimination of  disease-causing microorganisms in food

The facility was upgraded to a semi-commercial scale to improve the performance of the irradiator, resulting in a higher throughput of the facility.

Electron Beam Irradiation Facility
EBeam
Purpose:

As the next step in PNRI’s use of irradiation technologies, the 2.5 MeV electron beam (EB) irradiation  facility is the first of its kind in the country  intended for full-scale research and development and semi-commercial EB services.

The newly established EB  irradiation facility opens more applications of radiation such as improving the quality of semiconductors, automobile parts/tires, O-rings, wires and cables and production of nanomaterials, among others. This can also be used in radiation sterilization of medical devices,  food irradiation, radiation crosslinking, degradation or grafting of polymers and for surface curing.
