detection of radiation sources commonly found in contaminated scrap metal

Detect radioactive scrap metal before it reaches the facility

Protect your metal recycling facility from orphan sources and radiation contamination with accurate, reliable detection of radiation commonly found in scrap metal. Our rugged drive-through detectors and monitoring devices provide full vertical coverage of vehicle loads for highly sensitive radiation detection. This technology can also be adapted for conveyor monitoring of incoming raw materials. For closer inspection of localized “hot” spots in the load, our Thermo Scientific handheld radiation detectors allow you to confirm the type of contamination and isolate it before it enters your facility.

Detect radioactive contaminated scrap metal before it can harm people or the environment. The Thermo Scientific ASM IV Series Automatic Scrap Monitoring System monitors vehicles entering the scrap yard, or processes within the facility, and provides accurate, reliable detection of radiation sources commonly found in scrap metal. 

Determine alloy grade and chemistry in seconds. The Thermo Scientific Niton XL5 Handheld XRF Analyzer delivers accurate metal analysis for accurate scrap metal sorting as well as analyzing the outgoing product for material verification.

Prevent discarded radioactive materials from contaminating shredders, balers, and other scrap yard equipment with the Thermo Scientific RadEye GR Grapple Monitoring System. This wireless radiation detection system is designed to be installed on a grapple to monitor scrap metal, preventing radioactive contaminated scrap metal from making its way into the steel making process.

Protect employees anywhere in the scrap yard. The pocket-sized Thermo Scientific RadEye SPRD Personal Radiation Detector alerts workers to potential radiation exposure at greater distances without increasing false alarms so they can respond quickly and decisively to real radiation threats.
