Nuclear Decommissioning Sites using Contaminex

New Nuclear Decommissioning Wipes

A major UK Nuclear Decommissioning client has started using ContaminEX wipes at their Harwell site. Robots using wet wipes – who’d have thought it !

The robots use the impregnated wet wipes for cleaning up radioactive isotopes after they have performed the re-packaging of nuclear waste.  This reduces the level of radioactivity in the packing cell areas and reduces contamination of lower dose radioactive packages that come into the area later on.
