I have a problem concerning a 250 mr/hr hot spot on the bottom of a tank. The spot is about the size of a dime. My plan is to reach down through the man way and remove it using a HEPA filtered vacuum cleaner. Depending on the radiation level, the vacuum cleaner will then be opened and the bag placed in a shielded container or the entire vacuum cleaner packaged in a shielded drum.
