Cleaning and decontaminating radioactive parts and
equipment in nuclear establishments with the Decomatt
Decomatt is today's answer for cleaning and decontaminating
radioactive parts and equipment in nuclear establishments.
Proven in nuclear power stations throughout the world,
liquid abrasive decontamination provides for, controlled
cleaning and free release of components, tools and parts
for reuse or for conventional disposal. Decomatt is
a must for your volume reduction program.
Decomatt's principal is the bombardment of components
or equipment with a high-volume recirculated flow of
solid particles in water. The solid media stainless
steel, aluminium oxide or glass beads does the decontamination
work, but there is always a cushion of water between
the component surface and the media particles. This
prevents impregnation, surface damage and excessive
breakdown of the media while removing the fixed or smearable
Unlike other equipment the Decomatt System contains
all pressured abrasive delivery lines within the cabinet
to completely eliminate the danger of leakage as a result
of system failure.
In addition, the design minimizes space required which
is at a premium in nuclear plants. This design maximizes
the equipment which can be placed within your decon
Nuclear Safety Engineered Into Each System
- The Decomatt System uses approximately 50
gallons of water and 75 pounds of inert abrasive
- low waste volumes.
- Cyclone separators, using automatic valves,
remove solids from the slurry down to five microns.
- Glove box stations can be provided with lead
shielding and leaded glass for operator protection.
- The Decomatt Pump System can be removed without
draining the liquid in the sump.
- Decomatt Systems are consructed from stainless
steel to the relevant Q.A. standard.
- The Decomatt Pump, located in the sump, allows
all pressurized abrasive conduits and pumping
elements to be positioned inside the process
cabinet eliminating any potential for a spill
or leak in the event of a system failure.
- The lightweight process gun makes the machine
much easier and less tiring for the operator.
- Self-contained Hepa ventilation systems maintain
negative pressure inside the cabinet.
- Closed loop rinse systems can be provided
which eliminates any water going to rad waste
drains with the exception of periodic clean
