Basic Knowledge of Electron Beam
NHV Corporation provides electron beam irradiation services in addition to manufacturing electron beam irradiation equipment.
In Electron Beam irradiation, the absorbed dose rate is an important parameter for irradiation because it may change the properties of irradiated materials.
When the material to be irradiated is considerably thicker than the penetration depth, dual-sided irradiation can be used to obtain an effect on the entire material.
When electron beam irradiation is used industrially, the irradiation atmosphere is usually air, but in the case of electron beam curing of paints and inks, it is performed in an inert gas atmosphere.
This page describes the concept of how electron beams affect the thickness direction of materials and how to select Acceleration Voltage.
