Dedicated to supporting Decontamination and Decommissioning efforts world-wide, the Characterization Division combines application know-how with a broad range of Mirion products and systems to deliver solutions that help customers address the complex challenges faced during all stages of the D&D project life cycle. The ChD Division also features high temperature and radiation tolerant cameras for a wide range of imagine applications.
Decontamination and Decommissioning (D&D) is a major effort worldwide, covering everything from early R&D facilities to first generation nuclear power plants, weapons and fuel fabrication facilities and research reactors. Learn More in our new brochure >
When addressing the complex measurement challenges in the nuclear industry, we deliver measurement solutions for a wide range of radioactive materials - for example, depleted-to-highly-enriched uranium, plutonium, actinides and transuranic wastes as well as fission and activation products.
For fuel cycle facilities, we offer unique Criticality Accident Alarm Systems (CAAS) with neutron and gamma detections for optimum false alarm rate.
CAMERAS HARDENED AGAINST THE EFFECTS OF RADIATION
CCTV monitoring of nuclear generating, reprocessing, waste management and research facilities is of vital importance during the decommissioning and dismantling phases.
Mirion radiation tolerant inspection and surveillance systems, whether permanently located within the plant or used in portable or temporary configuration are designed to survive the hostile environments frequently encountered.
SOLID STATE HIGH RADIATION TOLERANT CAMERA
ON-SITE ASSAY SYSTEM FLEXIBLE SYSTEM FOR THE CHARACTERIZATION OF A VAIRETY OF BULK WASTE CONTAINERS
(MOBILE IOSCS LARGE CONTAINER COUNTER) SYSTEM
A transportable system for the characterization of large waste containers.
This simple, yet powerful, system can be transported in the back of a pickup truck or deployed in a trailer, simplifying field measurement scenarios where fixed systems are not easily implemented.
MILCC offers the following additional benefits:
Flexibility – with ISOCS calibrated detectors, this system accommodates a full range of geometries, including large waste container sizes. Other options include:
Suitability for higher count rates - The MILCC system can count drums that have been rejected by other systems that have been designed to assay lower count rate wastes. Shorter count times – With two large-volume BEGe detectors, the MILCC system offers shorter count times. Full-featured software - NDA2000 manages data acquisition, efficiency calibrations, QC’s, and analysis. Reliability – With industry-standard Canberra hardware and software, the MILCC system provides the flexibility you need along with the results you can rely on.
The Dotcam HR is a miniature color camera designed for use in higher radiation environments where the use of standard CCD based camera is not cost effective.
The CAAS-3S is a criticality accident alarm system (CAAS) as defined by the relevant industry standards. The system is designed to monitor areas where a potential criticality excursion could take place and alarm rapidly for the prompt evacuation of personnel in the event of a criticality accident.
Flexible system for the characterization of a variety of bulk waste containers.
