ADVANCED SURFACE TREATMENT TECHNOLOGY
Decontamination is defined as the removal of contamination from areas or surfaces of facilities or equipment by washing, heating, chemical or electrochemical action, mechanical cleaning, abrasive blasting or other means. Generally, some form of decontamination – large or small – is required in any decommissioning activity. Some techniques are useful ex-situ while others are useful in-situ. Now, all of the above-mentioned techniques can be replaced with UHP Water Jetting.
A quick, eco-friendly and safe way of cleaning. It removes deposits from the surface without damaging the basic material.
Nuclear decontamination involves removing the radiation-contaminated particles from components to reduce the level of radiation and minimizing the potential for radiation to seep into the atmosphere. It reduces the contamination of components and lowers the volume or classification of the rate of nuclear waste.
With Ultra High Pressure Water jetting, the operator or even a robot works inside the watertight cell during the decontamination process. The Water jet is created by a heavy duty UHP system of up to 3,500 bar pressure with the option of fully automatic or robotized systems.
The integrated part consists of a water circulation system with filtration, closed or open water circulation mode, a ventilation system with air filtration, dehumidification, and a connection to the site HVAC system.
The computer control system with water quality real-time inspection and complete working and safety control with an in-line connection to the main site control room guarantee a comprehensive decontamination/cleaning process.
By using a pressurized water jet, contaminated layers are successfully removed from the surface like:
