Search the D&D KM-IT
The hotline allows the decommissioning and dismantlement community to post problems
in a specific decommissioning and dismantlement (D&D) area and get solutions
from the subject matter specialists. Users can also search for previously published
problems and their solutions.
Technology provides information on decommissioning and dismantlement related technologies including robotics
and any associated demonstrations. It provides technology descriptions, benefits,
limitations, and associated links and documents. It also provides vendor information,
technology and demonstration fact sheet reports, and search capabilities.
The custom decommissioning and dismantlement web crawler searches and retrieve information
from decommissioning and dismantlement related websites. The crawler provides the
user with a listing of best-matching web pages, usually with a short summary containing
the document's title or parts of the text.
The mobile system component provides access to important D&D KM-IT features through wireless devices. The D&D community users can access the following modules from their mobile devices: vendor directory, specialist directory, hotline, technology information, picture library, lessons learned and best practices, and the fixative module.
Lessons learned provides a repository of documents published by the decommissioning
and dismantlement community users. This allows them to share their experience with
Best practices provides a repository of decommissioning and dismantlement best practices
documents that the user community can upload to the system.
The video/picture library allows community users to upload decommissioning and dismantlement
technology and demonstration videos and pictures to the decommissioning and dismantlement
KM-IT system. The videos and pictures could then be viewed by the decommissioning
and dismantlement community.
Weekly reports published by the ALARA center include the status of the decommissioning
and dismantlement activities that have taken place at various centers. It includes
the list of ALARA center activities for consecutive weeks. This feature makes the
reports available to the entire decommissioning and dismantlement user community.
The specialist directory provides a directory of decommissioning and dismantlement
experts in different areas along with their contact information. The user can search
the specialist directory by name or by area of interest.
Vendor management provides a directory of decommissioning and dismantlement vendors
along with their contact information.
Collaboration tools provides information-sharing mechanisms such as decommissioning
and dismantlement news, events calendars, links, message boards, and frequently
asked questions (FAQs). This allows the decommissioning and dismantlement community
to interact with fellow users.
The training component provides training videos related to decommissioning and dismantlement
work, ALARA Centers’ training material and custom training for the decommissioning
and dismantlement community.
Category: Decontamination > Surface Cleaning > High Pressure Water
Reference # : Model No : 10 K Hydrolazer
The 10K Hydrolazer utilizes high pressure water blasting system to remove coating and rust from surfaces. The basic system is capable of 10,000 psi blasting pressure. The water is sprayed through a nozzle or a system of nozzles onto the surface. The coating is removed by the impact of the water stream. The stripping action can be supplemented by pre-softening with an alcohol solvent or by including hard or soft abrasives in the water stream.
Dimensions of technology model (L x W X H): Not Available
Weight of the technology model (lb): Not Available
Can operate up to 500 feet away from the blasting unit.
Water can be recycled but needs to separated from paints chips.
There is no size limitation on part to be cleaned.
Water encapsulates contaminants and thereby reducing airborne contaminate.
System can be adjusted in order to remove individual coating layers.
No special removal media is required.
System is modular and requires minimal set up time.
The system was able to reach the edges of the metal.
Nozzle gun is heavy and induces a high level of fatigue in the operator.
The secondary waste produced is large if the water is not being recycled.
The unit requires a rather large water supply.
A system must be available to collect, filter, and recycle water containing debris.
Workers must be protected from direct impingement of water jet due to the extreme danger from the water jet.
A misapplied water jet will damage the substrate.
