Aspirators have a place in almost every medical setting: in hospitals, clinics, private practice, EMS and home care. Different models have different applications, but no matter what branch of medicine you specialize in, aspirators are a basic, though essential, piece of equipment.. Gomco 309 Ear Nose & Throat/Dental Aspirator. Professionals have long recognized that Gomco ENT equipment is among the best available. Like many medical specialties, there is a lot of overlap with Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) doctors and general practitioners. Given the frequency of ear, nose and throat issues that arise in patients, many general practitioners find it useful to have one of these tabletop units on hand.. Gomco Portable Aspirator 270/2701. Designed for post-op gastrointestinal drainage, this unit has no movable parts and can operate quietly for an extended period of time. With an advanced bacteria filter that prevents pathogens and other contaminants from infiltrating the unit, this is a safe, easy-to-use ...
However, the increase of these diseases near Sella-field was concentrated in Seascale, where eight cases in children below age 15 occurred in the period 1947-93 compared with about 0.9 expected (observed to expected ratio 8.9, table VII). Comparisons of the magnitude of this excess with those in the study parishes are influenced by the fact that, as emphasised recently,21 it was the Seascale cases themselves (specifically those before the report by the Black committee in 1984) that drew attention to this parish, thereby making conventional statistical tests inappropriate. Somewhat comparable would be for us to single out one parish near the Drax power station simply because of the five cases in a prolonged overlap period (7.9-fold increase). In Seascale only the cases after 1983 are amenable to hypothesis testing since appreciable opportunities exist for chance to inflate the excess among the earlier cases, a group that was in effect stumbled on.21. The second consideration is the highly unusual ...

Combustion Integration Rack (CIR) Hardware Gather: Virts gathered the equipment for the CIR reconfiguration from FLame Extinguishment Experiment (FLEX)-2 to the FLEX-2J scheduled for Wednesday. Node 1 (N1) and Node 2 (N2) Bacteria/Charcoal Filter Remove & Replace (R&R): Virts removed N1 bacteria filters and replaced them with charcoal filters. Using charcoal filters in Node 1 will reduce the ISS atmospheric Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) concentration. Reducing the PDMS atmospheric concentration will subsequently reduce the quantity of dimethylsilanediol (DMSD) produced in the Common Cabin Air Assembly (CCAA) Condensing Heat Exchangers, thereby extending the life of the Multifiltration (MF) Beds that are in a zero spare posture. The bacteria filters that were removed from the N1 will replace the N2 Bacteria filters that were scheduled to be replace per preventative maintenance schedule..

The PUREX process for reprocessing of irradiated fuel has been unchallenged for more than half a century even though it has several deficiencies such as flexibility, non-specificity of Tri-Butyl Phosphate (TBP), degradation of the extractant, TBP, and diluent. This project addresses the development of an alternative separation process to either replace and/or complement the PUREX process. Our process is based on the chromatographic separation of fission products from U and Pu. This research focuses on the synthesis of highly stable and selective materials which could be used as a stationary phase in a continuous chromatographic separation for short lived fission products (Cs, Sr); a technique patented by UCLan.. The objectives of this project were to synthesis highly selective adsorbents for fission products (primarily Cs and Sr) capable of extracting these cations from acidic liquor (up to 3 M HNO3). In addition to selectivity (specificity) and acid stability, the materials under investigation ...
The author of this book, a physicist and science writer, provides an interesting history of the man-made element plutonium beginning with the discovery of its naturally occurring parent element, uranium. The succinct history includes the events that led to the discoveries of radioactivity, nuclear structure, and the fission of uranium. It then proceeds to the synthesis of plutonium and other transuranic elements and the revelation in 1938 that plutonium can undergo fission when bombarded with neutrons. That phenomenon became known to physicists in the United States and Germany in 1942. The scene then switches to Los Alamos, New Mexico, where plutonium is refined and shaped into the material for the first implosion fission weapons. The chapter preceding the final one focuses on the unique chemical and physical properties of plutonium that make it difficult to handle. The book concludes with comments on the stockpiles of plutonium that exist worldwide and plutoniums potential dangers to mankind. ...
Nach der Aufnahme von Plutonium mit der Nahrung wird ein großer Teil mit dem Stuhl wieder ausgeschieden. Der Anteil von Plutonium, der aus der Nahrung im Magen-Darm-Trakt in den Körper aufgenommen (resorbiert) wird, ist im Wesentlichen abhängig von der Art der Plutoniumverbindung und dem Alter der Person. In grober Annäherung kann eine Resorptionsrate von Plutonium mit der Nahrung von 0,05 Prozent angegeben werden. Bei anorganischen Plutoniumverbindungen liegt diese etwa um den Faktor zehn niedriger. Für Kleinkinder ist eine um den Faktor zehn höhere Resorptionsrate anzunehmen. Nach der Resorption von Plutonium über den Magen-Darm-Trakt wird Plutonium im Körper verteilt und dort vorrangig in Knochen und in der Leber konzentriert.. Im Blut aufgenommenes Plutonium wird zu etwa fünfzig Prozent im Knochen, zu dreißig Prozent in der Leber und etwa zwanzig Prozent in anderen Geweben eingelagert. Die Verweilzeit von inkorporiertem Plutonium im Knochen beträgt etwa fünfzig bis hundert Jahre ...
H-Canyon and HB-Line are tasked with the production of plutonium oxide (PuO 2) from a feed of plutonium (Pu) metal. The PuO 2 will provide feed material for the Mixed Oxide (MOX) Fuel Fabrication Facility. After dissolution of the Pu metal in H-Canyon, plans are to transfer the solution to HB-Line for purification by anion exchange. Anion exchange will be followed by plutonium(IV) oxalate precipitation, filtration, and calcination to form PuO 2. The filtrate solutions, remaining after precipitation, contain low levels of Pu ions, oxalate ions, and may include solids. These solutions are transferred to H-Canyon for disposition. To mitigate the criticality concern of Pu solids in a Canyon tank, past processes have used oxalate destruction or have pre-filled the Canyon tank with a neutron poison. The installation of a filter on the process lines from the HB-Line filtrate tanks to H-Canyon Tank 9.6 is proposed to remove plutonium oxalate solids. This report describes SRNLs efforts to determine the ...

World still heavily relies on nuclear and coal power plants which means that radioactive pollution will continue to take millions of human lives for foreseeable future. The worst affected are people that work in these plants, and the ones working in uranium mines (uranium is the main nuclear fuel). Even despite many health measures that include constant monitoring of radioactivity in plants and mines, many of these people end up dying from cancer or leukemia as the result of exposure to radioactive pollutants. ...

There is no information from studies in humans or animals to identify the specific levels of exposures to plutonium in air, food, or water that have resulted in harmful effects. However, it is generally assumed that any amount of absorbed radiation, no matter how small, may cause some damage. When expressed as the amount of radioactivity deposited in the body per kilogram of body weight (kg bw) as a result of breathing in plutonium, studies in dogs report that 100,000 pCi plutonium/kg bw caused serious lung damage within a few months, 1,700 pCi/kg bw caused harm to the immune system, and 1,400 pCi/kg bw caused bone cancer after 4 years. In each of these cases the dogs were exposed to the plutonium in air for one day ...

The scattering of farms and rural homesteads that existed at this spot prior to the 19th century turned into a full-blown village with the arrival of the railway in the early 19th century. Seascale had aspirations to become a major resort, in fact it aimed to be the "Eastbourne of the north", but this ambition did not quite go according to plan, although the railway access ensured its popularity as a destination for day trippers. It was after the Second World War that the area was transformed forever, with the decision to build a nuclear power station, originally called the Windscale Reactor and Calder Hall, and now known as the Sellafield nuclear reprocessing site. The attendant influx of technicians and scientists who were brought into the area earned Seascale the nickname of "the brainiest village in Britain". Today Sellafield is the largest employer in West Cumbria, so whether you consider Sellafield to be a blot on the landscape or a necessary evil there is no denying its effect on the ...

The purpose of this analysis is to examine whether there is a justification for using high-level waste (HLW) as a surrogate for plutonium disposal in can-in-canister ceramic in the total-system performance assessment (TSPA) model for the Site Recommendation (SR). In the TSPA-SR model, the immobilized plutonium waste form is not explicitly represented, but is implicitly represented as an equal number of canisters of HLW. There are about 50 metric tons of plutonium in the U. S. Department of Energy inventory of surplus fissile material that could be disposed. Approximately 17 tons of this material contain significant quantities of impurities and are considered unsuitable for mixed-oxide (MOX) reactor fuel. This material has been designated for direct disposal by immobilization in a ceramic waste form and encapsulating this waste form in high-level waste (HLW). The remaining plutonium is suitable for incorporation into MOX fuel assemblies for commercial reactors (Shaw 1999, Section 2). In this analysis,
Plutonium adalah suatu unsur kimia dalam tabel periodik yang memiliki lambang Pu dan nomor atom 94. Ia merupakan unsur radioaktif transuranium yang langka dan merupakan logam aktinida dengan penampilan berwarna putih keperakan. Ketika terpapar dengan udara, ia akan mengusam oleh karena pembentukan plutonium(IV) oksida yang menutupi permukaan logam. Unsur ini pada dasarnya memiliki enam alotrop dan empat keadaan oksidasi. Ia bereaksi dengan karbon, halogen, nitrogen, dan silikon. Ketika terpapar oleh kelembaban udara, ia akan membentuk oksida dan hidrida dengan volume 70% lebih besar dan menjadi bubuk yang dapat menyala secara spontan. Ia juga merupakan racun radiologis yang dapat berakumulasi dalam sumsum tulang. Oleh karena sifat-sifat seperti inilah, proses penanganan plutonium cukup berbahaya, walaupun tingkat toksisitas keseluruhan logam ini terkadang dibesar-besarkan. Istotop terpenting plutonium adalah plutonium-239 yang memiliki umur paruh 24.100 tahun. Plutonium-239 merupakan fisil, ...
