High energy E-beam and X-ray: an overview of the technical solutions and typical cases of food irradiation
Monte Carlo is the state-of-the art technique for the simulation of particle transport, of their interactions with matter, and the dose deposition. It allows to predict the achievable dose uniformity depending on the irradiation parameters and the product properties. An excellent agreement with measurements has been shown.
In this presentation we will show the potential of simulations, and use them to analyse the dose uniformity ratio for various configurations of products. We will compare the achievable uniformity in E-beam and X-ray. Specifically, we will study the impact of the density, shape and arrangement of food products like fruits and fresh vegetables.
