Stable Isotope/Radioactive Isotope
We supply our wide ranging customer base with valuable elemental materials and reagents that are enriched and manufactured at nuclear enrichment facilities outside Japan. We manufacture products with various properties such as metals, oxides and gases according to the customer's order.
We have acquired a license for a radiation-resistant camera developed by AEA Technology Ltd in the UK and manufactured and sold by Centronic Ltd. We provide integrated services for the camera's production, sales, installation, inspection and repair in Japan to ensure higher quality.
Soft Wiper DK-1 Series
With the Soft Wiper DK-1 Series, any object can be wiped with a smooth, natural touch. These products are made of pure cotton non-woven fabric with minimal fluff, and were developed in collaboration with Asahi Kasei Corporation.
Made from high quality linters (the downy fibers surrounding seeds) in cotton, it is a long-fiber non-woven fabric that has not been woven or knitted at all, and does not use any organic substances such as adhesives.
The high-tech Wiper DK-1 Series improves the efficiency of wiping work. The design of this product utilizes ATOX's extensive experience and know-how in contamination protection technology cultivated in radioactive material decontamination work.
Five types are available for the eco-friendly DK-1 Series. Choose the right type for your application.
- For decontamination work at nuclear facilities
- For scientific experiment at RI facilities or RI labs
- For maintenance of OA equipment and precision equipment such as computers, copiers, clocks, and cameras
- 1. No binder processing (no adhesive used)
The fibers are bonded together by their own binding force (non-woven fabric) without the use of adhesive. Suitable for a wide range of applications.
Fluffing test: After rubbing 10 times with a testing machine, the surfaces of the rubbed and non-rubbed materials were compared.
- 2. Exhibits excellent water absorption and water retention properties
This wiper has 13 times the water retention capacity of its own weight due to the fiber's ability to absorb water and expand, as well as its special tissue structure.
- 3. Easy incineration disposal
The absence of impurities such as chlorine and heavy metals means there are no toxic gas emissions during incineration. Consideration has also been given to the safety of the incinerator.
We have various decontamination equipment for removing radioactive substances attached to buildings, facilities or equipment, such as reactor wells, cavities, various storage tanks, contaminated area floors, and overhaul equipment.
