At the Federal Research Centre for Nutrition, Institute of Radiation Technology, Karlsruhe, several different radiation facilities of semiindustrial type have been used in recent time for irradiation of foods (Diehl 1973; Grünewald 1973). While these are machine sources (electrons, X-rays), some experience has also been gained with a mobile Cs-137 source, with a stationary Co-60 source and with an X-ray machine installed aboard a fishing vessel. Experiences concerning reliability in operation, dose distribution, throughput capacity etc. are reported.
