    Waste recovery for nuclear wastes

    Nuclear waste is divided into low, medium, and high‐level waste by the amount of radiological character it contains. Low and Intermediate Level Nuclear waste is the radioactive waste resulting from nuclear facility consumables, clothing, laboratory equipment etc. This waste can adversely affect human health and the environment and therefore must be handled appropriately. Typically, the waste is kept underwater for 3-5 years until the radiation decays to levels that can be shielded by concrete in large storage casks, where it can be held for thousands of years. A challenge for the nuclear industry is the cost associated with conditioning, packaging and storage of these heterogeneous wastes. Therefore, a solution that can decrease the volume of nuclear waste, and reduce the amount of storage required, is considered a commercially advantageous option.

  • Dustless Lead Paint Removal & Nuclear Decon Tools for Power, Oil and Gas Industry

    Pipelines, large fuel storage tanks, transformer pads and countless power generating systems have been decontaminated and prepared for a fresh coat of paint in one step! There is no costly containment to setup before starting the job or additional cleanup after it’s done, because our shrouded power tools capture dust before it’s emitted. Our powerful HEPA vacuum deposits hazardous waste directly into a 55-gallon drum, safely sealed and ready for transport when full.

  • Electrical Based Tomography Systems for Slurry Flow

    Slurry transportation is required in a diverse range of sectors, from food to minerals processing; and oil sands processing to nuclear waste management. As a process it requires significant levels of energy and the abrasive nature of materials used can lead to ongoing issues of pipeline erosion.

    Radiation Monitoring for Medicine and Research laboratories

    Medicine and Research laboratories The medical industry uses radioactivity to explore and heal the human body. In pharmaceutical laboratories, nuclear medicine practitioners and patients alike are exposed to ionizing radiation to various extents. These internal and external doses, generated by radiotherapy, scintigraphy and sealed or unsealed sources, require special precautions. Saphymo designs and manufactures various dose monitoring solutions, ranging from individual radiation protection to process and waste control. Research labs using accelerators or reactors can also rely on Saphymo’s ability to meet safety requirements by providing highly technical, custom-made devices suitable for monitoring both very low and very high activity. The Saphymo product ranges, from Radiation Monitoring Systems developed from A-Z by Saphymo to Survey meters and dosimetry, meet medical and research requirements to the full.
