Viridian Consultants develops disruptive innovation with support from Innovate UK and Sellafield and is becoming the Go To company for nuclear characterisation sensors. The deployment of ViridiScope is safer, cleaner and faster than existing sampling tools and can take samples remotely. ViridiScreen® provides real time measurement of radioactivity and ViridiScan offers an unrivalled, in situ analytical capability.
ViridiScope® is a totally new approach to sampling for nuclear decommissioning (and elsewhere) that uses a laser to take material from solid surfaces. It is safer, cleaner and faster than methods currently in use and is applicable to materials such as concrete, plastic, wood, plaster and brick for a wide range of radionuclides and for elemental characterisation. ViridiScope® is robust and highly portable, and has been designed to be taken into high activity areas where it can be operated manually or deployed on a remotely operated vehicle at distances of up to 20 m. It can potentially be operated in pipes and difficult to access areas such as glove boxes and high activity cells where sampling is extremely difficult.
