Gamma irradiation services

Institute of Isotopes Co. Ltd. operates an OB-SERVO W type panoramic Co-60 irradiator. The Category IV. facility is a controlled access irradiator in which the sealed sources are stored in a water filled storage pool when it is not in use. The sources are kept in a cylindrical cage raised and lowered by a pneumatic hoist system. Adjustable source to product distance guarantees the good dose uniformity for different density materials and Thermal Boxes of various sizes provide the necessary temperature for testing (25°C to 80°C). The equipment can be also used for high dose research irradiation and sterilization.

Irradiation services

1. Irradiation for research purposes

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

2. Sterilization

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

3. Radiation hardness assurance tests

We undertake irradiation of various items, components and materials that could be exposed to extreme conditions and radiation (i.e. in Nuclear Power Plants, Radiation Technique, Space industry, etc.):

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

We have thermoboxes with different sizes and can provide testing temperatures up to 80oC (higher temperatures may also be possible upon request).

4. Experimental irradiation

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

5. Testing radiation detection systems

Detectors, measurement systems, probe irradiations, etc.
