LLW & greater than Class C waste

LLW waste is measured using a range of techniques depending on the volume and homogeneity of the waste.  ANTECH provides a range of options for LLW measurement, which range from far field to segmented. Shielding is sometimes included in measurement instruments to reduce background radiation. Low Level Waste (LLW) upper thresholds vary.

UK – LLW upper thresholds correspond to:
  • 12,000 Bq/g (324 nCi/g) for waste with beta-gamma activity
  • 4,000 Bq/g (108 nCi/g) for waste with alpha activity
US – The upper threshold for LLW waste with alpha activity is:
  • 100 nCi/g (3,700 Bq/g)

NOTE: In the USA, Class C LLW represents waste with higher beta-gamma activity and is generally equivalent to UK ILW with higher beta-gamma activity.

02 EMBASSY (Excavator Mounted Bucket Assay System) G3102-4216

, , , , , , , ,

The ANTECH excavator mounted bucket assay system (EMBASSY) model G3102-4216 is a system designed to measure the radioactive contents of an excavator bucket. It can be employed to detect, measure and segregate radionuclide contamination in soil, gravel and rubble.The contaminates may include naturally occurring radioactive materials (NORM) such as Ra-226 and activation and fission products […]
