Laser Photonics’ CleanTech Laser Cleaning Revolutionizes Nuclear Decontamination Processes

ORLANDO, Fla., April 4, 2024 – Laser Photonics Corporation (LPC), a leading global developer of industrial laser systems for laser cleaning and other material processing applications, highlights a key application for its CleanTech laser systems in the nuclear power industry.

Regular removal of radioactive substances is crucial at nuclear power plants for reducing safety issues for the public and the environment, as well as improving the longevity of the equipment and the facilities. LPC’s CleanTech laser cleaning technology offers a safe and effective solution for nuclear facility maintenance, addressing the challenges posed by traditional cleaning methods like sandblasting, water blasting, power tool grinding, or chemical cleaning.

“Nuclear industry professionals have greatly benefited from using our laser cleaning technology in solving unique maintenance challenges that commonly used processes are unable to meet,” said Wayne Tupuola, CEO of Laser Photonics. “CleanTech has multiple applications for nuclear facilities operations, such as cleaning storage tanks, removing radioactive substance layers and maintenance of nuclear reactor parts.”

Maintenance of a nuclear facility includes regular safety reviews and planning for preventive and corrective measures that ensure systems and components can perform their functions. For operating license renewal, ongoing systematic MRO of essential parts is critical. Maintaining related equipment and storage can be optimized with LPC’s CleanTech laser cleaning technology. Whether it’s for the restoration of a site to a condition that is safe for human health and the environment or decommissioning for permanent shutdown and dismantling, CleanTech offers a convenient way to reduce radiation levels to as low as reasonably achievable (ALARA).

LPC’s laser cleaning solution is a precise material vaporization process that requires no consumables and is non-contact, preventing physical damage to worked-on material. It generates no secondary waste, in contrast to conventional cleaning methods. The technology can be automated, enhancing efficiency while reducing the need for manual labor. In addition, laser cleaning technology can be tailored to the unique needs of operators regardless of the industry or application.

These capabilities make LPC’s CleanTech a perfect fit for nuclear power plant maintenance and decommissioning sectors. Nations across the globe are investing heavily in developing new nuclear power plants as part of their net-zero roadmaps and decreasing their reliance on oil in the face of ongoing geopolitical crises. For LPC and its stakeholders, the nuclear industry presents substantial opportunities for robust expansion and favorable prospects.
