I am having problems pumping out debris from a tank. The plan is to pump out the debris in a slurry through a hose that will have to be draped over the worker's shoulder however, high gamma radiation levels may be present. In order to reduce the worker's dose we either need to shield the hose or the worker or both. We are aware of the Radishield shielding sold by Frham Safety but thought we might know of a better product.
