  • What is the difference between A PM2.5 Monitor and a PM10 Monitor?

    Ambient air particulate monitoring is of more interest than ever before. The reason is new public awareness of the health effects of small particles suspended in the air, in combination with increased vehicle fleets emitting such particles. ...

  • Radon Air Stripping of Well Water

    Radon is Frequently Found in Ground Water Radon, symbol Rn, atomic number 86, is a colorless, odorless gas at ambient conditions. It is the heaviest element of the Noble Gas family. As such it is extremely stable and unreactive chemically. But it also is highly radioactive. Its half-life is only 3.8 days. Both Thorium, symbol Th, atomic number 90 and Uranium, symbol U, atomic number 92, have ...

  • How to treat radioactive NORM sludge with VacuDry

    NORM doesn’t sound like a big thing. But Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material might let the alarm bells ring. Everyone has heard of “radioactive material” and that sounds dangerous. However, most of this material is trapped deep in the ground beneath our feet. From there it reaches the surface, for example via the water cycle. Another possible pathway for NORM to reach the ...

  • Aerial Radiation Detection

    In this time of multiple threats to our security: dirty bomb; cyber; shooters in public places; homemade bombs; misinformation; etc. we feel extremely vulnerable; perhaps more vulnerable than ever before. With the advent of Drone technology now available to private citizens, technology previously only held by the military, the opportunity has come to marry Drone Technology with aerial sensors. ...

  • Effect of three non–protein thiols on CHO cells exposed to low doses of X–radiation

    The goals of this study were to determine whether cysteamine, β–mercaptohetanol and glutathione protect CHO K1 cells against chromosomal aberrations induced by low doses of X–radiation, as well as whether radiation protection is related to physical properties of those thiols. Experimental design included four different treatments: (a) control, (b) cells treated with 5 mM of each thiol, (c) cells ...

  • Radioactive Clean-up

    Radioactive, nuclear, or radiation clean-up is considered as the most dangerous, difficult, and costly remediation activity after a nuclear disaster or accident.  The contamination may be found in the air, water, and soil, as wells as equipment and buildings (USEPA, 2010). Radioactive material is unstable, while the nuclei of radioactive atoms emit ionizing radiation (i.e., alpha ...

  • Researchers discover high uranium levels in south India groundwater

    The uranium isotopes during their course of their disintegration decay into other radioactive elements and eventually decay into stable lead isotopes. The cause of environmental concern is the emanation of beta and gamma radiation during disintegration. The present study tends to estimate uranium in groundwater trapped in granite and gneiss rocks. Besides, the study aims at estimating the ...

  • A database of cancer induction by low-dose radiation in mammals: overview and initial observations

    The lifespan studies of animals exposed to low doses of ionizing radiation with a view to determining the relationships between radiation dose and cancer incidence have been identified and corresponding publications have been reviewed. The information on experimental conditions and cancer incidence data in exposed and control animals have been entered into a database intended for a global ...

  • Properties and Behavior of Radionuclides

    For the purposes of this document, radionuclides should be considered to have properties similar to those of other heavy metals.This does not imply that all radionuclides are heavy metals, but that the majority of sites requiring remediation of radioactively contaminated materials are contaminated with radionuclides that have similar properties. Like metals, the contaminants of concern are ...
