The dismantlement phase of a decommissioning project can generate quantities of rubble which might require characterisation for potential radioactive material contamination. Similarly, site clearance operations can require evaluation of soils. ANTECH offers a number of services for the measurement of soil and rubble in a range of sample sizes and measurement techniques to meet the various requirements.
The ANTECH EMBASSY service measures the contents of excavator buckets. This approach allows the immediate segregation and sentencing of materials and the placement of the measured material into the correct location removing the requirement to handle the material multiple times and hence saving operational costs.
The ANTECH CHARMS service measures the contents of one metre cubed builders bags filled with soil and rubble. This is an effective approach for small-scale operations.
ANTECH also offers conveyor monitoring services for large-scale remediation projects. Measuring soil and rubble on a conveyor allows for rapid and accurate measurements of high volumes of material. ANTECH offers both continuous and tray-based conveyor monitoring as a function of the measurement requirements.
