Noise and vibration monitoring for nuclear power industry

by ACOEM     based in Limonest, FRANCE

The nuclear industry must increase the availability and reliability of its power stations whilst ensuring that a high level of safety is maintained. The principal weak points in achieving this objective are the industry`s systems and components.

Posi-Shell Coatings

by LSC Environmental Products, LLC     based in Apalachin, NEW YORK (USA)

Posi-Shell erosion control coatings are the perfect low-cost solution to protect and stabilize slopes. Our long-term coatings are spray-applied and allow engineers or operators to protect acres (hectares) of slope in a single day. The finished coating is durable and textured, reducing water energy across large areas. The final product eliminates erosion, siltation, and (as a result) expensive rework. The product can be designed to last for years and is easily tracked into slopes when intermediate protection is no longer necessary. Indeed, when integrated, Posi-Shell actually improves soil quality by conditioning it for future seeding. Posi-Shell’s simplicity and durability make it tremendously effective at controlling windblown dust, infiltration, or runoff associated with clean or contaminated stockpiles. Unlike cumbersome tarps or geo-membranes, Posi-Shell erosion control coatings are spray applied and do not require any ballast. Posi-Shell conforms and adheres to any topography and delivers 100% clean runoff. Stockpile loading or removal is accomplished by breaking into the coating where desired. Active areas may be left open or quickly resealed if required. Posi-Shell erosion control coatings are ideal for protecting expensive piles of salt, coal, or cement clinker; and are used extensively for containing hazardous or radioactive soils.

Noise monitoring solutions for material testing

by Brüel & Kjær Sound & Vibration Measurement A/S     based in Nærum, DENMARK

With today`s growing focus on noise control issues and the emergence of sound quality as an important aspect of product design, acoustic material testing is becoming increasingly relevant to engineers, designers and manufacturers from a broad range of industries. Acoustic material testing is the process by which the acoustic characteristics of materials are determined in terms of absorption, reflection, impedance, and admittance, including transmission loss.

Waste recovery for nuclear wastes

by Tetronics (International) Limited     based in Swindon, UNITED KINGDOM

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.

Radiation Monitoring for Nuclear Military Sites

by Saphymo     based in Montigny Le Bretonneux, FRANCE

Deterrence is the cornerstone of Defense, reflected in today`s nuclear military vehicles (submarines, aircraft carriers, aircraft, etc.) and sensitive sites. Defense calls on Saphymo`s exhaustive product range to secure its personnel and equipment and shoulder the emergency services in case of a CBRN threat. All military units are required to be fitted out with detection and decontamination devices, and possess the special expertise needed to manage exceptional events. Nuclear military sites must also be equipped with specialist monitoring devices. Dosimetry, survey meters, access control, Radiation Monitoring Systems, environmental monitoring networks and numerous other solutions offer valuable decision-aid tools, providing fast and accurate information and easier situation assessment.

Water Treatment Solutions for Radium Removal

by Adedge Water Technologies, LLC     based in Buford, GEORGIA (US) (USA)

Radium is found naturally in uranium ores. It is an alkaline earth metal that decomposes in water and  it is over a million times more radioactive than the same mass of uranium. As a radiological hazard that emits alpha, beta, and gamma rays, it is a carcinogen.

Environmental radiation monitoring

by HORIBA Europe GmbH     based in Leichlingen, GERMANY

Every day, wherever we go, we are exposed to minute amounts of environmental radiation.* This environmental radiation is emitted continuously, day and night, from various objects and substances in the natural world and our living environment.

Most environmental radiation consists of three types: alpha rays (α), beta rays (β) and gamma rays (γ).  HORIBA`s PA-1000 `Radi` environmental radiation monitor makes it easy for non-specialists to measure even minute levels of gamma rays.

* Environmental radiation, also known as natural radiation, includes radiation emitted from space, soil, stones, the ground and the air, as well as from manmade objects such as concrete and buildings

Digital Pathology

by Excelitas Technologies     based in Mississauga, ONTARIO (CANADA)

Digital Pathology is an image-based information environment enabled by virtual microscopy. This involves imaging glass slides and saving and distributing their digital images for analysis, archiving and storage. The virtual microscopy slides are: •Scanned — using a microscope based scanning device that takes images of the whole slide via large scanning or stitching of smaller scans. This involves a motorized stage to scan the whole slide. Light source stability is important for scanning in order to prevent illumination variation across the whole scan. The X-Cite® exacte is commonly used in slide scanning systems. •Viewed — on a computer via viewing software •Managed — some of the slides have a barcode that is also scanned to enable archiving with patient information •Analysed — using image analysis tools and software, structures maybe automatically identified and quantified •Shared — digital pathology files may be shared over a network to gather additional expert opinion Digital pathology technology in no way replaces the expert eye and diagnosing power of a pathologist and a doctor. The only thing it saves is time to image the samples and also provides an efficient and organized way to archive the virtual microscopy slides for future consultations, record-keeping and disease comparison.

Radiation Monitoring for Emergency Preparedness / Radiation Monitoring for Homeland Security

by Saphymo     based in Montigny Le Bretonneux, FRANCE

Nuclear and radiological risks are obviously a reality in today`s world, and anti-terrorism has become an absolute priority for homeland and border security. Alert and detection mechanisms are fundamental to current protection policies: we must be capable of preventing the illegal traffic of radioactive sources through border controls, and measuring gamma radiation in the environment if a malevolent act is committed. Saphymo meets homeland security and Emergency preparadness by proposing dosimeters and survey meters for both preventive and response purposes, enabling first responders to assess the character of radiological incidents.
