Nuclear Waste Monitoring Case Study

The nuclear decommissioning industry has long required a reliable and robust means of sampling internal conditions, such as temperature, from within intermediate nuclear waste containers but to date, no measurement method has been able to survive the harsh radiation environment.

This Case Study demonstrates the capability of Instrumentel’s  wireless data acquisition system to function within an elevated radiation environment such as that found in intermediate level waste containers. We show how the advanced Hardened XT01 Data Tag was able to continue to operate effectively after a cumulative gamma radiation does of 11.5 MGy, almost double the required exposure for the lifetime of an ILW container.
