Abstract:

Three types of pavement sweepers were investigated to determine their adaptability for high rate radiological decontamination. A runway sweeper utilizing an air nozzle pickup was found to be not adaptable. Ordinary street sweepers can perform limited services as decontamination sweepers, but ore not suitable for complete development as high rate units. A sweeper developed for Air Force decontamination needs, the ARDC 100DS, is adaptable to the task requirements.
