Laser cleaning is an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional blasting and chemical methods for radiation decontamination. Our portable solutions can decontaminate layers of contaminating oxides on metal and concrete surfaces, removing harmful residues without generating additional waste.
ALFA LASER provides efficient and gentle blasting technology sufficient to clean metals & concrete surfaces potentially below the contamination threshold required for recycling.
How Laser Cleaning for Nuclear Decontamination Works:
Laser ablation for nuclear decontamination works by directing high-energy Pulse Laser at the contaminated surface and gasifying or dislodging the contaminants by the Laser Beam pressure generated.
Laser cleaning of radioactive surfaces is done layer by layer along with a vacuum that absorbs any harmful substances left over from the cleaning process to a (Ultra Low Penetration Air - ULPA Filter – 99.9995% efficient 0.12 micron). Laser cleaning is the ideal solution for both decommissioning and routine maintenance of nuclear facilities.
