Waste is generally categorised as ILW because it has high activity above the beta-gamma activity threshold or it has higher alpha activity (or both), as detailed below:
- Beta-gamma activity: > 12,000 Bq/g (324 nCi/g), or
- Alpha activity: > 4,000 Bq/g (108 nCi/g)
ILW and higher activity waste is measured using a range of technologies and techniques depending on the density, homogeneity and the amount of alpha activity present.
The ANTECH G3250-220 Wide Range Segmented Gamma Scanner (WR-SGS) builds on the segmented gamma scanning technique to measure the radionuclide content of waste drums.
The ANTECH N2240 Series are enhanced efficiency active-passive neutron counters for the measurement of plutonium and uranium in nuclear waste.
The ANTECH N2940-2552 Active-Passive Crate Counter is an enhanced efficiency active/passive neutron counter designed for the measurement of plutonium and uranium in nuclear wastes contained in a variety of crates and waste boxes.
The ANTECH N1081 De-Randomising Mixer Buffer provides useful test and diagnostic information for multi-counting chain neutron detectors by determining independent software readable neutron totals counting for each input counting chain and statistical data analysis for each counting channel.
The ANTECH Model G3651 Fuel Element Debris (FED) Monitor is a heavily shielded and collimated far field measurement instrument originally designed for the measurement of highly radioactive fuel element components and debris from UK MAGNOX reactors.
