High Energy Electron BeamIrradiation:E-beam

E-beam treatment refers to the use of ionizing radiation from an electron beam source to initiate chemical changes in aqueous contaminants. In contrast to other forms of radiation, such as infrared and UV, ionizing radiation from an E-beam is absorbed almost completely by the target compounds’ electron orbitals, thus increasing the energy level of its orbital electrons. The energy level of radiation is sufficiently high to produce changes in the molecular structure of compounds, but is too low to induce radioactivity.Electron beam processes use the portion of the electromagnetic spectrum between 0.01 eV and 10 eV.
