“Able has no hesitation in recommending Aurora to other organisations and it endorses Aurora’s declaration that it is the leading provider of radiation protection services in the UK…” – Dave Quelch, Able Instruments & Controls Limited

The industrial sector is one of the largest and most varied users of ionising radiation. Radiation fulfils a variety of functions within this sector, from a sensitive gauge for measuring material density to a non-destructive X-ray imaging device for inspecting weaknesses.

It is capable of monitoring the rate of engine wear and corrosion of processing equipment, and observing the velocity of materials through pipes and system filtration. The high prevalence of radioactive materials within the industrial sector makes company-wide radiation protection a primary concern.

We provide a full range of industrial radiation protection services, enabling you to control, manage, and limit radiation levels across every stage of their use. The consultancy advice offered by our Radiation Protection Advisers (RPAs) and Radioactive Waste Advisers (RWAs) ensures you are in full compliance with current radiation legislation and informed on all aspects of radiation safety. This includes the management of high activity sealed sources, which often require stringent controls for managing radiation safety, and security of radioactive material. Our facility design and testing regularly assesses the condition of your facility for performance, ensuring that weaknesses are shielded promptly and efficiently.

We also undertake waste assessment, manage waste disposal, and can provide fully integrated health physics personnel to support you in all technical industrial radiation protection matters.

Other industry users of radioactive materials include the following:

  • The automobile industry uses radioactive materials to test the quality of steel in cars
  • Mining and petroleum companies use radionuclides to locate and quantify mineral deposits
  • Can and container manufacturers use radioactive materials to obtain the proper thickness of tin and aluminium
  • Pipeline companies use radioactive materials and X-rays to look for defects in welds
  • Construction organisations use radioactive materials to gauge the density of road surfaces and subsurfaces

As the leading independent UK radiation protection company, we have worked with some of the country’s largest organisations. We ensure an unrivalled commitment to service and the highest standard of industrial radiation protection.
