  • Case study - Ice Blast technology for steam generator decontamination

    Background At Point Lepreau NGS the Health Physics Department looked for alternative decontamination methods that could be applied to reduce the dose expenditure as a result of maintenance on the primary side of our steam generators. Due to the characteristics of the CANDU design (i.e., primary circuit being high purity D2O) introduction of foreign contaminants was also a concern. ...

  • On the Ionization of Air for Removal of Noxious Effluvia

    Abstract—Recent developments in the application of controllable air ionization processes that apply dielectric-barrier discharge devices to generate nonthermal plasmas have led to applications for chemical and biological decontamination in indoor air environments. These include significant reductions in airborne microbials, neutralization of odors, and reductions of specific volatile ...

  • Decontaminating Groundwater Sampling Devices

    These studies are the second part of a two year project that examines decontaminating groundwater sampling devices. In the first year, the efficiency of various decontamination protocols was tested using small test pieces of materials that are commonly used in groundwater sampling devices. Those tests showed that a hot detergent wash and rinse followed by hot air drying (105°C) was the most ...
