Efficient and rapid extraction of tritium and 14C
Complete and clean oxidation of organic-rich materials (foodstuffs, marine and freshwater fish, meat, vegetation, wood, oils, plastics, and soft wastes) pressurised oxygen to promote efficient combustion.
Application areas: Nuclear decommissioning, waste characterization, environmental monitoring, C14 extraction.
The Raddec HBO2 is a current generation fully-integrated Hyperbaric Oxidiser System. It is specifically designed to quantitatively oxidize combustible materials to water and carbon dioxide using pressurised oxygen in a precision engineered, closed-vessel. This instrument processes samples such as soft wastes, plastic, oil and biota that can then be analysed for tritium and Carbon-14 activities.
These systems are routinely used to extract volatile radionuclides from a range of materials as part of waste characterisation in the nuclear decommissioning and related sectors.
