Standard Guide for Dosimetry In Radiation Processing of Fluidized Beds and Fluid Streams (Withdrawn 2016)


1.1 This guide describes several dosimetry systems and methods suitable for the documentation of the irradiation of product transported as fluid or in a fluidized bed.

1.2 The sources of penetrating ionizing radiation included in this guide are electron beams, x-rays (bremsstrahlung) and gamma rays.

1.3 Absorbed doses from 10 to 100,000 gray are considered, including applications such as disinfestation, disinfection, bioburden reduction, sterilization, crosslinking and graft modification of products, particularly powders and aggregates.

1.4 This guide does not purport to address the safety concerns, if any, associated with the use of fluidized beds and streams incorporating sources of ionizing radiation. It is the responsibility of the user of this guide to establish appropriate safety and health practices and to determine compliance with regulatory limitations prior to use.
