Nuclear Decontamination

Laser cleaning is an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional blasting methods  for radiological decontamination. Our handheld solutions are able to decontaminate layers of contaminant oxides on metal and concrete surfaces, removing hazardous residue without resulting in additional waste.

Adapt Laser offers blasting technology that is efficient and gentle enough to clean metals, potentially below the contamination threshold required for recycling. Thanks to our partnership with cleanLASER, we can provide you with flexible technology configurations for stationary and handheld applications that are proven and ready for this difficult task.

HOW LASER CLEANING FOR NUCLEAR DECONTAMINATION WORKS

Laser ablation for nuclear decontamination works by sending high-powered laser pulses into the contaminated surface, turning the pollutants into gas or removing them through pressure that is created by the laser light. Laser cleaning of radioactive surfaces is performed layer-by-layer alongside a vacuum designed to absorb any harmful material remains of the cleaning process. Laser cleaning is an ideal solution both for nuclear decommission and regular maintenance of nuclear facilities.
