UMechanical and chemical methods are applied for decontaminating contaminated structural elements. Babcock Noell supplies individual solutions, both mechanical and chemical, for your decontamination work.
Babcock Noell has designed a facility which decontaminates pipes externally contaminated e. g. in the course of retrofitting turbine condensators in boiling-water reactors by brushing and grinding them until their contamination is below release values.
For wet chemical decontamination processes by means of phosphoric acid, Babcock Noell has developed a plant which uses the so-called PHADEC® method, PHosphoric Acid DEContamination, that generates only little primary waste. The primary waste makes up only 2% of the whole processed mass, which is achieved by also recycling the phosphoric acid.
