SIS is a leading supplier of real-time x-ray systems for non-intrusive examination of low level/intermediate nuclear waste in drums. We offer turnkey solutions for the inspection of both 200 /500 litre drums and our experienced project team will handle all aspects of the inspection including conveying, x-ray shielding, x-ray imaging system and the control and storage software. Our innovative technology allows the entire drum to be inspected using Real Time Radiography (RTR) and Digital Radiograph (DR) as a single seamless image (no input screen joins). Powerful 3D Computed Tomography (CT) enables detailed examination and location of the drum contents. SIS drum inspection systems are used in most of the UK's main low level radioactive waste streams.
