Accelerators / cyclotrons
During the operation of accelerators and cyclotrons radioactive isotopes are generated as a result of physical interactions in parts of the device. These activated components are subject to the radiation protection ordinance and need to be dismantled professionally.
We offer the following services:
- Development of customer-oriented solutions for dismantling
- Measurement services and identification of activated components
- Professional decommissioning and takeover of activated components as well as decontamination
- Clearance measurments of activated components according to § 31-37 radiation protection ordinance
Being in consultation with the relevant authorities at all times, we can provide you an individual concept for dismantling and disposal.
With our long-standing partners, we can guarantee you a time and cost-optimized realization of your project.
Gamma-Service Recycling GmbH has decommissioned and disposed more than 150 accelerators over the past few years.
