Aegis® ALARA Designs

Designs for Power Generation that are ALARA freindly

Read F.A.Q.

Graver Technologies Utility Filter Ion Exchange Division is continuously improving to keep products ALARA (As Low As Reasonably Achievable), minimizing timing during filter changeouts in confined spaces, we understand power generation filtration and time challenges during planned outages.

We have created unique designs and have partnered with power corporation design engineers to create quick changeout and less complicated filtration devices.

Our Full Flow Guide Rods incorporate quick disconnect componentry, Captive Hitch Pins, and Tilting guide rods allow personnel speedier changeouts.

We welcome the opportunity to improve the process and minimize exposure in nuclear applications and speed up confined space entry in any power generation filtration application.

As defined in Title 10, Section 20.1003, of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR 20.1003), ALARA is an acronym for "as low as (is) reasonably achievable," which means making every reasonable effort to maintain exposures to ionizing radiation as far below the dose limits as practical, consistent with the purpose for which the licensed activity is undertaken, taking into account the state of technology, the economics of improvements in relation to state of technology, the economics of improvements in relation to benefits to the public health and safety, and other societal and socioeconomic considerations, and in relation to utilization of nuclear energy and licensed materials in the public interest. For additional detail, see Dose Limits for Radiation Workers.

Frequently asked questions

How to remove heavy metals from water and wastewater?
Many MetSorb® adsorbents will remove heavy metals from water and wastewater. Please view our product pages for more information.
Are heavy metals in water? Do they pose a threat to human health?
The USEPA issued and regularly reviews/updates the National Primary Drinking Water Regulations (NPDWR).
How can I remove lead from water?
Many MetSorb® adsorbents will remove lead and other heavy metals from water. Please view our product pages for more information.
How much uranium is safe in drinking water?
The USEPA has issued and regularly reviews/updates the National Primary Drinking Water Regulations (NPDWR).
Why do MetSorb® adsorbents sometimes have a bad smell and how do we get rid of this odor?
MetSorb® adsorbents are made from metal oxides and rarely have any noticeable smell. They can sometimes concentrate bacteria (specifically sulfur reducing) that may be present in the drinking water well source. While this type of bacteria is naturally found in many well sources and are considered harmless, the resulting “rotten egg” smell can be unpleasant. In order to remove the bacteria from the MetSorb® media bed, we recommend performing a 25-50 ppm chlorine shock for 12-24 hours. The system should then be rinsed with fresh water until no residual chlorine odor is noted. If bacteria count in the well water is high, this chlorine shock of the MetSorb® media may be required 2 or 3 times per year.
How can uranium be removed from well water?
One way uranium can be removed is through adsorption. MetSorb® HMRG has a selective affinity for uranium.
