Typical working of E-Beam

  • An Electron Gun is housed in a thick vessel
  • Number of Electrons as a Beam (Beta Rays) is accelerated in an acceleration tube. Their power can be regulated and controlled
  • The Electrons are directed to a scanning device magnetically
  • The Cables are passed under the beam thru set of under-beam equipments and given exposure to predetermined doses
  • Highly accelerated electrons penetrate the insulation or sheath of cables. This results in the generation of carbon radicals which link or cross links the polymer chains of the plastic three dimensionally with each other.
