Device for sampling radioactive material and analytical method of radioactive material

Device for sampling radioactive material and analytical method of radioactive material
Device for sampling radioactive material and analytical method of radioactive material

PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To efficiently perform the analysis of a radioactive material locally distributed.SOLUTION: This radioactive material sampling device 1 includes: a radiation detection unit 10; and a radioactive material sampling unit 20. These units are fixed to a ROV100 via a frame 110. For this reason, the radiation detection unit 10 and the radioactive material sampling unit 20 are integrated each other and move on the sea bottom B together with the ROV100. The radiation detection unit 10 recognizes the presence or absence of a radioactive material piece in the sea bottom B, and when the radioactive material pieces are recognized, the soil around the periphery thereof is sampled by a radioactive material sampling unit 20. A radioactive material sampling device control unit recognizes which detection intensity of the radiation detector in each of the measuring heads is the highest, and recognizes a region inner position of the radioactive material piece.SELECTED DRAWING: Figure 1

Abstract

PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To efficiently perform the analysis of a radioactive material locally distributed.SOLUTION: This radioactive material sampling device 1 includes: a radiation detection unit 10; and a radioactive material sampling unit 20. These units are fixed to a ROV100 via a frame 110. For this reason, the radiation detection unit 10 and the radioactive material sampling unit 20 are integrated each other and move on the sea bottom B together with the ROV100. The radiation detection unit 10 recognizes the presence or absence of a radioactive material piece in the sea bottom B, and when the radioactive material pieces are recognized, the soil around the periphery thereof is sampled by a radioactive material sampling unit 20. A radioactive material sampling device control unit recognizes which detection intensity of the radiation detector in each of the measuring heads is the highest, and recognizes a region inner position of the radioactive material piece.SELECTED DRAWING: Figure 1
