REFINMENT OF A DECONTAMINATION TECHNOLOGY FOR RADIOACTIVELY CONTAMINATED EQUIPMENT

JOURNAL: 2021, 15, p. 28-38

AUTHOR: V.V. Shelenkova, T.A. Kulagina

ANNOTATION:

This article analyzes the data on chemical decontamination methods dealing with radioactively contaminated surfaces.
It considers the composition of solutions most commonly used for decontamination purposes. Numerical data are
presented to illustrate the effectiveness of various decontamination methods. The paper considers an experiment
on the decontamination of stainless steel samples with water following a cavitation treatment. The study reveals
a dependence between the decontamination efficiency and the treatment time of the contaminated surface with a
decontamination solution based on cavitation-activated water, which appears to be comparable with the results of
the one involving an alkaline solution.


Keywords: radioactive waste, decontamination, surface contamination, decontamination solution, cavitation treatment, decontamination factor
