June 7, 2013 – Ameriphysics characterized, removed, and disposed of a 50 ton, 30 MeV IBA Cyclone 30 cyclotron and ancillary support equipment, two cyclotron vaults, four target vaults, four hot cells, and three fume hoods. This decontamination and decommissioning project was completely designed, managed, and executed by Ameriphysics and required removal and disposal of more than 12 million pounds of low-level radioactive waste. Ameriphysics wrote and implemented the site’s MARSSIM-based final status survey plan and developed release criteria using modeling codes including RESRAD and MicroShield.
