There have been multiple cases where contaminated scrap metal was unwillingly recycled into newly manufactured products. Beyond the radiological risks and potential consequences in health and economical losses along the supply chain, this type of event could have repercussions with nuclear safety authorities and possibly the media. The systematic detection of potential contamination in scrap metal therefore became an essential step for the recycling sector, as well as for the third parties processing the materials further down the recycling chain. To help monitor incoming materials that should not be processed, NUVIATech Instruments developed a modular set of cost-effective solutions to protect scrapyards operators, workers, equipment and processing sites.
NuSEARCH Kit – A choice of detectors designed to easily search for the contaminated material and provide essential information to the nuclear authorities. The combination of the easy-to-use handheld device DolMo and ahighly sensitive probe allows the user to confirm the presence of radioactivity and trigger the adequate response.
