Automation IN a Radioactive Environment

We have experience designing and building automation for radioactive environments where traditional equipment is not acceptable. We can address special requirements such as operation and maintenance access within the typical constraints in this industry.

We have designed and built automated equipment working with a variety of radioactive isotopes at a variety of energy levels including:

  • Iodine
  • Technetium
  • Molybdenum
  • Thallium and Gallium
  • Cobalt
  • Cesium

We have designed and built multiple custom automation systems with customized tooling around this range of radioactive products. We automate processes ranging from simple inspection cells, to complete batch processing through packaging of a radioactive product.
