But what else is there? And where?
There’s a chance that any metal arriving at one of Hidaka Yookoo Enterprises Co.,Ltd.’s processing sites may be contaminated with radiation. Untreated, this could lead to further contamination of people, equipment, other materials and the environment, disrupting operations for varying lengths of time, respective to the half-life of the contaminant.
Therefore, Hidaka Yookoo Enterprises Co.,Ltd. sought out an effective solution to help identify contaminated scrap metal, allowing rapid mitigation to stop any incident right in its tracks.
Pickup trucks entering the sites already pass through a radiation portal system that detects radiation. However, an additional device was needed to confirm the presence of radiation, and accurately identify the specific radioisotopes present.
