Abstract

The high dose rates obtainable from high power accelerators are valuable for fundamental chemical and physical research work, and offer besides the possibility of performing pilot-plant operation prior to industrial application. The linear accelerator at Riso has been used for such purposes, including irradiation of disposable medical supplies for industrial firms on a contract base. This linear accelerator yields a stable 10 MeV electron beam with an average power of five kilowatts. The beam can be directed through a straight ahead window or through a beam bending and scanning device. The bent and scanned beam is employed for process irradiation. The packages to be irradiated are moved through the irradiation field by means of a conveyor system, which has available a full range of velocities from 0.2-600 mm/s, thus giving a wide dose range for a fixed accelerator adjustment. The facility has been in operation since the autumn of 1960 for Danish research institutions and from 1961 also for industrial radiation sterilization of disposable medical supplies, e.g. syringes, catheters, transfusion and infusion sets, and lung-heart machines. The processing rate has increased steadily, the number of packages treated during the first 3 months of 1963 being about 3000. Each package may  More>>

This linear accelerator yields a stable 10 MeV electron beam with an average power of five kilowatts. The beam can be directed through a straight ahead window or through a beam bending and scanning device. The bent and scanned beam is employed for process irradiation.

The facility has been in operation since the autumn of 1960 for Danish research institutions and from 1961 also for industrial radiation sterilization of disposable medical supplies, e.g. syringes, catheters, transfusion and infusion sets, and lung-heart machines. The processing rate has increased steadily, the number of packages treated during the first 3 months of 1963 being about 3000. Each package may contain, say, 900 off, 2-ml syringes. A large amount of work has gone into the refinement of the irradiation techniques, including application of reflector systems, automatic dose regulation, routine dosimetry and visual colour indicators. A short survey of these technically important details is given, and the actual sterilization processing, including handling, control and dosimetry, is described. Finally some information about the operating cost is given. (author) [French] Les forts debits de dose produits par les accelerateurs a grande puissance, en plus de leur utilisation pour les travaux de recherche fondamentale en physique et en chimie, permettent de proceder a des operations semi-industrielles avant de passer a l'application industrielle. L'accelerateur lineaire de Riso a ete utilise a cette fin, en particulier pour l'irradiation sous contrat d'instruments medicaux non recuperables pour le compte d'entreprises industrielles. L'accelerateur lineaire produit un faisceau stable d'electrons de 10 MeV a une puissance moyenne de 5 kW. Le faisceau peut s'extraire, soit en ligne droite, soit par un dispositif de deviation. Le faisceau ainsi devie est utilise pour l'irradiation. Les paquets a steriliser sont amenes dans l e champ d'irradiation a l'aide d'un convoyeur dont la vitesse peut avoir toutes les valeurs entre 0,2 et 600 mm/s. On obtient ainsi une large gamme de doses sans avoir a modifier l e reglage de l'accelerateur. L'installation fonctionne depuis l'automne 1960 pour les centres d'etudes danois et depuis 1961 pour la sterilisation industrielle d'instruments medicaux tels que seringues, sondes, appareils de transfusion et infusion, etc. Le nombre de paquets traites a augmente pour atteindre 3000 au cours du premier trimestre de 1963. Chaque paquet contient par exemple 900 seringues de 2 cm{sup 3}. Beaucoup d'efforts ont ete consacres au perfectionnement des methodes d'irradiation, notamment l'application des systemes de reflecteurs, le reglage automatique de la dose, les operations de dosimetrie courante et l'emploi d'indicateurs chromatiques. Les auteurs exposent brievement tous les details techniques importants et decrivent le procede de sterilisation (y Compris la manutention, le controle et la dosimetrie). Enfin, ils donnent quelques chiffres sur les frais d e fonctionnement. (author) [Spanish] Las elevadas intensidades de dosis que se pueden obtener con aceleradores lineales son muy utiles en las investigaciones fundamentales de quimica o fisica, pero permiten tambien llevar a cabo operaciones de caracter semiindustrial. El aparato instalado en Riso se utiliza, entre otros fines, pata la irradiacion de articulos medicos no recuperables que se efectua por contrato con empresas industriales. El acelerador produce un haz electronico estable de 10 MeV con una potencia media de 5 kW. El haz puede extraerse en linea recta o a traves de un dispositivo desviador y barredor. Este ultimo se emplea en las irradiaciones industriales. El material que se ha de irradiar atraviesa el campo en una cinta transportadora de velocidad regulable entre 0,2 y 600 mm/s, lo que permite variar la dosis en un intervalo muy grande sin modificar el ajuste del acelerador. El aparato funciona desde el otofio de 1960 para las instituciones cientificas de Dinamarca, y, a partir de 1961, tambien para la esterilizacion de instrumentos medicos, por ejemplo, jeringas, sondas, aparatos para transfusion e infusion, etc. El numero de articulos tratados aumento regularmente, habiendose irradiado unos 3000 paquetes en el primer trimestre de 1963. Cada paquete puede contener, por ejemplo, 900 jeringas de 2 cm. Se han dedicado muchos esfuerzos a mejorar las tecnicas de irradiacion, estudiandose entre otros aspectos el empleo de sistemas reflectores, la regulacion automatica de la dosis, el control dosimetrico y el empleo de indicadores cromaticos. La memoria revisa sucintamente estos importantes detalles tecnicos y describe los procesos de manipulacion, control y dosimetria empleados en la esterilizacion. Para terminar, proporciona algunos datos sobre el costo de explotacion del proceso.
