With L.E.H.P. x-ray processing, you no longer have to make the tough to decision to send your product out to a gamma/high-energy x-ray facility or to process your product in-house but with an offline, small batch, low-energy x-ray system that is incapable of keeping up with production. With L.E.H.P. x-ray processing, integration into a continuous process – that’s in-house AND inline! – is finally possible. How? With the highest throughput of any low-energy x-ray system on the market, that’s how. And while we can’t promise to meet the throughput of gamma for every process, we don’t have to tell you the value of a secure supply chain in our current era of unpredictability. Not to mention an in-house process eliminates a transportation step and coordinating and scheduling with an outside facility, all of which takes time, effort, and money.
No radioactive source is quite a benefit for x-ray processing as well. There’s no decay of throughput over time, production growth is as easy as purchasing another x-ray system, and there’s no reliance on radioactive material and the regulations surrounding it. L.E.H.P. x-ray processing is also cool – cool as in awesome, of course, but also cool as in the product remains at room temperature during processing. Temperature control can be an important aspect of production for applications such as fresh foods and pharmaceuticals. Speaking of foods, did you know that x-ray processing is a chemical-free way of achieving pathogen reduction and sterilization?
