The basic DC circuit used in the Dynamitron ® ensures smooth and reliable operation at high
voltages. This design avoids the use of large capacitors, which are particularly vulnerable to
spark damage at voltages above 1 MeV.
Since the Dynamitron ® has very low stored energy, the chance of spark damage is minimal. Even
when sparking does occur, the unit may be quickly restarted and returned to normal operation.
Because of their low stored energy, all Dynamitrons ® are highly compact when compared with
Throughput of the Dynamitron ® is incredibly large thanks to its capability to generate power as
high as 250 kW continuously.
Historical production data is stored in the dynamitron ® control system making instantaneous
data recall possible.

Integration of Pay-off, Take-up and QC Systems
IBA can perform the engineering work required to supply an integrated and validated set-up,
including the Dynamitron ® , the underbeam handling equipment, Pay-Off, Take-Up and QC
A Dynamitron ® installation usually requires changes in a customer's production facility. Strict
codes must also be followed in the design and construction of the shielding and safety system,
and the resulting design must accommodate product handling requirements.
IBA offers different training programs to their customers: Introductory Operator Training, Basic
Technical Training Course and Advanced Technician Training.
Installation of an accelerator is a significant undertaking. An experienced supervisor will
manage it and provide direction for local technical personnel.
This service consists in:
• scheduling work in cooperation with the customer's project manager,
• checking out all wiring and plumbing connections,
• directing placement and all final adjustments of the Dynamitron ® subsystems,
• completing the full conditioning process, from start-up to acceptance testing.
IBA's support organization is spread over Asia, Europe and US in order to offer fast response
time and to support customers in their time zone.
Spare Parts Online
Spare parts can be ordered at any time through IBA Customer Services or through the “IBA
Store”, an on-line ordering tool. Spare parts are stored in US, Europe and Asia for a fast
delivery to customers.
The Dynamitron ® works on the same principle as a television tube but with a high accelerating voltage:
from 550 kV to 5 MeV.
1 Electron Source
Electrons are generated by a heated
filament in an electron source.
2 Beam Tube
A voltage gradient draws the
electrons away from the source
and accelerates them through an
evacuated beam tube.
As the high voltage beam of
electrons passes from the beam
tube through the scan magnet, an
oscillating magnetic field sweeps
the beam back and forth across the
The electrons pass through the metal
foil of the scan window and irradiate
the products passing beneath.
The enormous number of electrons
generated and the high acceleration
voltage produce rapid reactions
directly on the molecules within the
product being irradiated.
Multipurpose Dynamitron ® E-beam Facility
With a multipurpose Dynamitron ® E-beam facility, irradiation of both reel-to-reel (wire and cable and
heat-shrink) and parts of bulks on trays is possible.
