Dilute Chemical Decontamination Program Review
It is desirable to reduce radiation exposure to workers in nuclear power plants to values that are as low as reasonably achievable. One method of reducing occupational exposure is to reduce the source of the exposure. Decontamination of the primary coolant system would reduce shutdown radiation levels and occupational radiation exposure in nuclear power plants.
