Radioactive Contamination

Radioactive Contamination - Ambica Steels Limited

ALL RAW MATERIALS USED TO MAKE OUR STEEL AT AMBICA STEELS ARE SCANNED AND TESTED FOR RADIOACTIVE CONTAMINATION EVEN BEFORE THEY ENTER OUR PREMISES.

Ambica Steels has always been well aware of its responsibility of delivering the radiation-free products to its customers, and to endorse this principle the management had bought 2 radiation dosimeters almost eight years ago (Environmental Radiation Dosimeter is the instrument that is used to check the presence of radioactive contamination like photons & Gamma Radiation in steel scraps).

Today, the company is also using RAD detectors with external sensors. These instruments can measure faster, and can measure much lower contamination levels with a higher degree of accuracy. This is in addition to Ambica’s laboratory for the measurement of radiation thru identification of nuclides (gamma spectroscopy with multi-channel analyzer). The quantification is shown in Bq/g and Bq/Kg. At Ambica, each delivery of scrap is tested for radioactive contamination, which ensures that of all its raw materials are free from radioactive contamination. This procedure is being followed for last 8 years. Besides, our state-of-the-art radiation check equipment installed at our entry gates ensure that all incoming / outgoing materials are free from contamination and provides a radiation free atmosphere for our employees are work in.
