Medical linacs can be modified and adapted to collect images and carry inspections or non-destructive tests.
We take advantage of the rotational gantry used on humans to obtain 3D images, which can be useful on very complex structures analysis.
The controlling software is replaced by a simpler one since limitations such as energy control, precision dose deliver and target constrains are not an issue on a non-alive subject.
Modifications are made according to the needs.
Even when the applications for linear accelerators in the industrial field are multiple and endless; there are three listed below which our company works with.

ELECTRON BEAM IRRADIATION
BENEFITS OF IRRADIATING FOOD MATERIALS
- 1. Preventing food-borne illness
Irradiation destroys genetic materials that cause microorganisms in the food
- 2. Destroying or inactivating organisms that cause spoilage and decomposition of food
- 3. Replacing the use of pesticides
- 4. Prevent sprouting in food
