Laser Cleaning in the Nuclear Industry

Nuclear Decontamination Solution

Laser Cleaning in the Nuclear Industry: Laser cleaning is a safe, eco-friendly, and cost-effective method of nuclear decontamination. This allows industry professionals to effectively treat contaminants during nuclear decommissioning.

Key Advantages:

  1. Precision: Laser cleaning is precise and accurate, allowing for the effective treatment of targeted surfaces.
  2. Non-Destructive: The process is non-contact, preventing physical damage to worked-on material.
  3. No Secondary Waste: Laser cleaning produces minimal waste, making it environmentally friendly.
  4. Operator Safety: Laser cleaning eliminates the need for hazardous consumables that harm the health of operators.
  5. Automation: The technology can be automated, further enhancing efficiency while reducing the need for manual labor.
  6. Customization: Laser cleaning technology can be tailored to fit the unique needs of operators regardless of the industry or application.

Laser cleaning technology offers a safe, effective, and innovative solution to nuclear decontamination, facility and turbine maintenance, addressing the challenges posed by traditional cleaning methods and contributing to safer and more efficient nuclear facility maintenance.

Step by Step Process of How To Execute Laser Cleaning:

    1. Selection of Laser Parameters: Engineers and technicians select the appropriate laser system based on several factors, which include the type of contaminant, the material of the surface, and the desired level of cleaning.
    2. Laser Absorption: The selected laser emits a high-intensity light directed onto the contaminated surface. The result is the energy from the laser being absorbed by the contaminated layer.
    3. Energy Transfer: The absorbed energy causes the contaminant layer to heat up rapidly. This results in the energy being transferred from the laser to the contaminants, causing the layer to vaporize or turn into a plasma state.
    4. Contaminant Removal: As the contaminants vaporize or turn into a plasma state, they detach from the surface. This process is known as ablation. The vaporized contaminants are carried away by the surrounding gas or are extracted through an integrated exhaust system.
    5. Surface Integrity: Laser cleaning is a precise process that selectively targets contaminants while leaving the underlying surface mostly unaffected. The energy is absorbed by the contaminants rather than the substrate material, minimizing damage to the surface.
    6. Collection and Disposal: The vaporized contaminants are collected, filtered, and safely disposed of using appropriate procedures to prevent pollution.
