The disposal of hazardous waste requires special handling to ensure that safety and regulatory requirements are met. Preparing the waste for incineration or burial requires equipment that is durable and reliable so that the materials are processed safely and in accordance with the regulatory requirements.
Radiation portal monitors are specifically designed for the detection of very low radioactive contamination and orphan sources at high traffic flow gates for vehicles, cargo, containers and pedestrians.
The Challenge: Manufacturers of personal protection devices are driven to safeguard the public health caused by airborne chemical contaminants. Removal of these contaminants is technically demanding, and manufacturers must meet this technical challenge while navigating stringent regulations. Jacobi’s understands this unique blend of technical and regulatory challenges for personal protection devices faced by our customers. Jacobi provides many different formats of product that are used in different aspect...
Safe Training Systems (STS) manufacture a range of simulated ionising radiation monitors suitable for use by homeland security departments.
The range includes contamination and radiation simulators from manufaturers such as Ludlum, Rotem, TSA and Thermo. In particular instruments such as the Rotem Ram Gene 1 mk II and the TSA PRM470 CS are popular with UK services. US users still prefer instruments such as the Thermo RO2 and Ludlum 3 for their instrument training.
STS offers a wide and versatile range but...
Radioactive sources entering the supply chain can cause major health risks to both the general population as well as employees of recycling and manufacturing facilities. Reliable radiation detection of such materials is essential to reduce these risks.
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...
Level detection is a very widespread measurement requirement. Whilst there are many techniques for detecting liquid surfaces, it is much more challenging to identify the interface between liquids and other systems.
When ships, submarines and port facilities exposed to the corrosive marine environment need to be repainted, get to clean steel quickly and safely without any messy cleanup using our shrouded power tools! Old paint is removed and packaged in one step using our powerful VAC-PAC HEPA vacuum and deposited directly into 55-gallon drums, safely sealed and ready for transport and disposal when full. No costly containment is required for hazardous jobs, because dust is captured at the surface, before it’s emitted.

The presence of uranium in water causes radiological pollution as all uranium radionuclides decay by both alpha and gamma emissions. Chemical aspects of uranium toxicity include mainly nephritis and other renal diseases. Mentioned harmful features affect on humans even in low concentrations thus requiring sensitive analysis methods.
MRP Systems has been receiving an increasing number of orders from Particle Physics Labs doing High Energy Physics Research and Dark Matter Laboratories who want to use the MRP Barrier System to shield out background radiation, in the search for neutrinos, Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMP’s), Axions, Sterile Neutrinos etc. For example, we have recently supplied the UK’s main Dark Matter Laboratory, in Boulby, and a Research project based in Belgium that involves 50 European astro-physicists...
Radon is an odorless radioactive gas that results from the natural breakdown of uranium in soil. Uranium is present in most of the soil and rock around the world. It is typically concentrated in areas with lots of granite, shale, phosphate and pitchblende.
