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.
