Nuclear Power Plants

Radiation Monitoring Systems

We are a manufacturer and supplier of radiation monitoring systems for nuclear power plants.

Supplied systems reliably detect ionising radiation and protect people, environment and technologies from ionising radiation.

Our devices and systems fulfil both normative and legislative criteria of nuclear power plant operators.

We have gained and verified our knowledge through practical experience. As one of the few producers and suppliers of radiation monitoring systems, we have our own teams located directly at nuclear power plants.

Post-Accident Monitoring Systems

Importance of post-accident monitoring systems has increased globally. The main reasons are calls for lifetime extension of many nuclear power plants and increasing legislative requirements of supervisory authorities.

Our post-accident measurement devices fulfil requirements of nuclear power plants for its full functionality in defined harsh conditions.

We design, supply, install and certify these devices and systems worldwide according to end-users’ particular requirements.

Contamination Monitoring at Boundaries of Radiation Controlled Area

To prevent contamination from spreading outside a controlled area or other defined areas in nuclear power plants, personnel and tools contamination monitors are placed at the exit points of these areas.

We develop and install contamination monitors for whole body, hands, feet, floors, clothing and tools.

We are able to adapt our standard monitor types to specific customer needs and requirements.

Liquid and Gaseous Effluents Monitoring

Liquid and gaseous effluents make up a significant part of the overall radiation monitoring and protection in nuclear power plants.

We supply a wide portfolio of products and devices developed for real-time measurement and sampling, along with post-accident measurement.

Besides the instrumentation itself, we provide our customers with consultation and the effluent monitoring solution proposals.

Our deliveries include the device or system installation, commissioning and personnel training.

NPP Dismantling and Decommissioning (D&D)

In nuclear power plants with planned shutdowns and decommissioning, the subjects of radioactive waste characterisation and free release into the environment are becoming more and more important.

VF is currently one of the most significant suppliers of radioactive waste characterisation and free release monitors.

Due to the sensitivity and reliability of the supplied measuring equipment, our systems help power plant operators to save considerable resources on possibly radioactive waste storage and disposal .

Calibration Laboratories

According to legislative or local requirements, radiation detection devices and equipment are subject to periodical calibration and verification in metrological laboratories.

To fulfil metrological requirements for measuring devices and equipment, we have developed a reliable irradiation facility system.

The calibration system includes:

  • Irradiator
  • Calibration bench
  • Data and control software

Waste Management

Free Release

Because of the global increase in the number of decommissioned nuclear power plants we also focus on classification and free release of radioactive waste.

We have developed and supplied nuclear power plants with a complete range of systems for measuring possibly radioactive waste in order to free release it into the environment.

The devices and systems designed for the free release of possibly radioactive waste into the environment are always customised with regard to customers individual requirements.

Personnel and Tools Contamination

To prevent contamination from spreading outside the controlled area or other defined spaces in nuclear power plants, personnel and tools contamination monitors are placed at the exit points of these areas.

We develop and provide contamination monitors for whole body, hands, feet, floors, clothing and tools.

We are able to adapt our standard monitor types to meet specific customer requirements.

Radioactive Waste Characterisation

Because of the long use of radioactive sources and technologies, the amount of radioactive waste has been increasing.

This waste needs to be characterised before it can be store and disposed of.

Our products for radioactive waste characterisation are intended for radioactive waste repositories, nuclear power plants and research reactor operators.

Radiation Monitoring Systems

When handling radioactive waste and preparing it for disposal, it is essential to be aware of the radiation situation and contamination risk that such handling represents.

We develop and produce monitoring systems for radioactive waste repositories, spent fuel storage facilities and waste processing facilities.

We have experience both in the Czech Republic and abroad, where we have installed our systems at nuclear power plants and national radioactive waste repositories.

Radioactive Sources Final Disposal

Disposal of ionising radiation sources are provided by our teams of experienced staff, holding all the necessary permits from State Office for Nuclear Safety.

For this purpose, we have our own-developed advanced measuring devices, a hot cell to work with ionising radiation sources, our own transport and shielding containers with all the necessary certifications for ionising radiation sources transport.

We are able to dispose of old irradiators with ionising radiation sources, or individual sources, both in the Czech Republic and abroad.

All components meet the strictest technical and normative requirements imposed on national Primary Standard Dosimetry Laboratories (PSDL).

Irradiators and Calibration Benches

We have a range of gamma and neutron irradiators with different numbers of ionising radiation sources.

The calibration bench is compatible with all VF irradiators and has become an integral part of complete deliveries.

All our irradiators and calibration benches can be controlled from the operator’s room with the control software supplied to customers in the required configuration.

Support and Consultation

At VF, we operate an accredited metrological laboratory for calibrating our manufactured equipment.  Our accredited laboratory meets all necessary normative and legislative requirements laid down by supervisory authorities.

This long-term experience, along with years of experience with worldwide SSDL and PSDL deliveries, allows us to provide our customers with complete and professional advice in the field of ionising radiation metrology.
