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 250 accelerators by now.
