Feasibility study of a shielding-independent radiation portal monitor system for revealing 241-Am orphan sources in radiometric surveillance of scrap metal
Orphan radioactive sources inadvertently melted in steel plants are a health and economical hazard. Thus, regulation authorities impose strict control measurements to be performed at these plants. However, a recent series of incidents related to the melting of 241Am sources demonstrated the inadequacy of even state of the art systems in revealing this low-energy gamma ray emitter up to activities ...
What is a cooling tower? Before we get started here are a few definitions that may come in handy: Waste Heat: Heat rejected or escaping from furnaces of various types (as coke ovens, cement ...
In North America during the summer months, a common problem is wasps building nests inside radiation Shields. Not only does this create risks for anyone nearby, but the heat that they generate renders measurements useless. MetSpec Shields have been ...
