Irradiation Services

Institute of Isotopes Co. Ltd. operates an OB-SERVO W type irradiator. The Category IV. facility is a controlled access irradiator in which the sealed sources are stored in a water filled storage pool when the equipment is not operating. The sources are placed in a cylindrical cage raised and lowered by a pneumatic hoist system. Adjustable source to product distance guarantees the good dose uniformity for different densities and different size of Thermal Boxes provides the necessary temperature for testing (25°C to 80°C).

The equipment can be also used for high dose research irradiation and sterilization.

1. Irradiation for research purposes

We offer irradiation (aging) test services for experimenting and testing at various dose rates based on customer preferences. We also collaborate with companies from the food and medical industry providing the irradiation for the test items like: spices, medical devices.

2. Sterilization

We provide sterilization services for in vitro medical devices, laboratory equipments.

3. Radiation hardness assurance tests

We undertake irradiation of various items, components such as:

  • different materials and coatings,
  • plastic test samples,
  • lubricants,
  • electric components: cables, circuits, switches, sensors, valves, motors, actuators

materials that could be exposed to extreme circumstances and radiation (i.e. in Nuclear Plants, Radiation Technique, Space industry, etc.). We have thermoboxes with different dimensions and can provide testing up to 80oC (higher temperature possible upon request).

4. Experimental irradiation

We collaborate with various research organisation, teams and other companies providing them the required dose rates and environment for various experiments: waste water managements,  degredation etc. We also offer our services to carry out experiments, gathering the analytical data, continuous diagnostics etc.

5. Testing radiation detecting systems

Detectors, measuring systems, probe irradiations etc.
