Non-Intrusive Ultrasonic Decontamination (NU-DECTM)

NU-DEC™ systems can be installed on the exterior of piping, tanks and vessels and effectively clean the interior of these components without the need to open or enter the components or connected systems. NU-DEC™ systems are easy to install and cost-effective compared to equipment repair/replacement or chemical decontamination, particularly when contamination is localized or recurrent. NU-DEC™ systems have been successfully used in a wide range of applications at nuclear facilities, including decontamination of piping to reduce radiation exposure at operating nuclear plants and prior to decommissioning / dismantling of nuclear facilities and systems. For each application, DEI provides supporting engineering analysis to optimize cleaning parameters for safe and effective cleaning.
