Laser Cleaning has been proven to remove fixed contamination. Eliminating water contamination and subsequent purification. Laser cleaning radioactive materials consists of irradiating the surface with an NIR wavelength fibre Laser. This cleans the surface by ablation and turns surface contaminants into a gas or vapor. With proper fume extraction and filtration, these materials can be brought down to free release levels.
Given that this application is in its infancy we are discovering new information as well as applications on materials for decontamination with our laser cleaning systems. Our systems are the most user friendly for such applications. We realise that users will be heavily dressed in PPE and our systems respond to this need accordingly.
