Radiation Leak Testing

Qal-Tek specializes in radiation leak testing, providing cutting-edge solutions to detect and prevent radioactive leaks. With our expertise and state-of-the-art technology, we help industries maintain safety, adhere to regulations, and protect the environment from potential radioactive leaks.

What is Radiation Leak Testing?

Radiation leak testing is a critical process used to identify and assess the potential release of radioactive materials from sealed sources or containers. This procedure is vital in various industries where radioactive materials are utilized, such as medical, industrial, and research settings. By detecting leaks early, we minimize risks to personnel, the environment, and public health.

Frequency of Radiation Leak Testing

The frequency of radiation leak testing depends on factors such as the type of radioactive material, the nature of the application, and regulatory requirements. As a general guideline, regular testing should be conducted to ensure ongoing safety and compliance. Many regulatory bodies mandate specific intervals for leak testing, and Qal-Tek can help you determine the optimal testing schedule based on your industry and requirements.

Performing a Radiation Leak Test

Our radiation leak testing process involves a combination of advanced equipment and skilled technicians. The process typically includes:

  • Preparation: We ensure the testing environment is suitable and safe for the procedure.
  • Equipment Setup: Specialized detectors and monitoring devices are strategically placed around the source to detect any potential leaks.
  • Source Activation: The sealed source or container is activated, and monitoring begins.
  • Data Collection: Our state-of-the-art equipment records and analyzes data from the monitoring devices in real-time.
  • Analysis: Our experts analyze the collected data to determine if any leaks are present and to assess their severity.
  • Reporting: A comprehensive report detailing the test results and any recommended actions is provided to the client.

Testing for Sealed Radioactive Source Leaks

Detecting leaks from sealed radioactive sources requires precision and expertise. Our process includes:

  • Visual Inspection: Visual examination of the source and its container for any signs of damage or degradation.
  • Gamma Spectrometry: By analyzing the gamma radiation emitted, we can detect specific isotopes associated with leaks.

Qal-Tek employs a combination of these methods to ensure the highest level of accuracy in detecting sealed radioactive source leaks.

Radiation leak testing is an essential component of safety and regulatory compliance in industries working with radioactive materials.
