Hudson Research announces the Flash X-Ray Irradiator (FXI), a
low-cost biosterilization system. It is suitable for postal
mail irradiation, product sterilization, and bio-remediation.
This patent pending technology is readily adapted to all forms of
postal mail irradiation. It's compact flat panel x-ray source
eliminates most of the bulky hardware associated with traditional
is our position that mail should be irradiated at the point of
collection, as well as in larger central facilities.
This is necessary because because the potential for significant
contamination exists between the mailbox and the central office.
Mail carriers and their vehicles and anyone who happens to be near
them are at significant risk. Our low-cost Flash Irradiator
can be integrated into a mailbox to decontaminate mail as it is
deposited. Mail drops in buildings are easily retrofitted as
are mail slots in post offices. We also propose equipping mail
trucks with mobile versions and robotic arms to remove potentially
contaminated mail from standard streetside mailboxes.
Shielding is incorporated for personnel safety.
The Flash Irradiator is based on a large area flat panel x-ray
source. Its cold cathode design eliminates most of the
cumbersome power supplies associated with conventional x-ray
systems. Its compact physical shape allows easy integration
into many different applications.
