Trec traceability of radioactive equipment at cern

TREC (Traceability of Radioactive Equipment at CERN)

  • The TREC system is present in each buffer zone:

    • Touch screen and bar-code reader

    • Bar-code stickers

  • TREC training course on SIR: http://sir.cern.ch

LTEX Meeting, March 21st - 2013


Trec traceability of radioactive equipment at cern1

TREC (Traceability of Radioactive Equipment at CERN)

  • All the materials, included waste, coming out from the LHC tunnel, have to be registered in TREC and left in the buffer zone to be controlled by RP

  • The equipment too big to be left in the buffer zone they could be temporary left outside the buffer zone (but this has to be previously agreed by RP)

  • All the transports of radioactive material

    have to be done with the RP authorization

    (fiche jaune)

LTEX Meeting, March 21st - 2013


Radioactive material transport

Radioactive material transport

  • All the radioactive material internal transport (intra and intersites):

    • EDH transport request (TNRQ)

      or

    • material stackage request (STOCK);

  • RP authorization is mandatory (fiche jaune)

  • CERN car is mandatory

  • If the dose rate at contact is higher than 5 µSv/h, the transport has to be done by EN/HE

  • Rules: EDMS 1198577

LTEX Meeting, March 21st - 2013


New dmc reading system

New DMC reading system

  • Automatic reading and logging in a new RP database with new electronic DMC readers (LDM)

  • Link between IMPACT and the Operational Dosimetry system: the IMPACT number will have to be typed on the LDM

  • In addition to be logged in the RP database, the doses will be kept in the IMPACT database

LTEX Meeting, March 21st - 2013


Dmc pool mode

DMC: Pool Mode

Assigned dosimeters

Pool dosimeters

  • The dosimeter is assigned to a worker, when the dose is read it is automatically logged into the RP database (DB) under his/her name

  • The user only have to type the IMPACT number on the reader.

  • The dosimeter is not assigned to a worker, when he/she access he/she needs to type first his/her CERN ID and then he/she has to type the IMPACT number on the reader.

  • At the reading, the dose is automatically registered under his/her name in the DB

Before accessing

Type the IMPACT number

Type your CERN ID

Ready to access

At exit: after reading

LTEX Meeting, March 21st - 2013


Dmc second phase

DMC: second phase

In future

  • Second step of the project: during LS1, in compliance to the recommendations from the Host States Authorities (ASN/OFSP), the DMC will become mandatory in the Simple Controlled Radiation Areas. Meanwhile: usually no need to borrow a DMC for the work in Simple Controlled Radiation Area or in Supervised Radiation Area (except DIMR II/III)

  • At the beginning, a list of the active IMPACT numbers will be displayed next to each DMC reader and will be kept up to date by RP (weekly). At a later stage we will investigate the possibility to simplify this feature.

In case of problem

In case of problem?

  • Alarm: leave the area immediately and contact the Radiation Protection Service for the concerned area:

    • Meyrin, tel. : +41 22 76 72504

    • Prévessin, SPS & LHC, tel. : +41 22 76 75252

  • Technical problem (battery, DMC HS, LDM HS, etc….), please contact the Operational Dosimetry Service:

    • Tel. : +41 22 76 70538

Optimization during design material choice

Optimization during design Material choice

Goal:

  • Minimize doses received by personnel during maintenance and repair

  • Reduce costs for waste disposal

  • Consider radiological hazards in the choice of construction materials

    Tool to optimize material choices:

    ActiWiz

    (Authors: C.Theis and Helmut Vincke)

  • Computer code based on a risk model using pre-calculated FLUKA results. Considers external exposure and radioactive waste disposal

  • Provides radiological hazard assessment for arbitrary materials within a few seconds

  • Catalogue, produced with ActiWiz, listing pre-processed risk factors for typical accelerator construction materials as well as natural elements

  • Web-based catalogue (ActiWeb) allowing user friendly comparison of pre-processed materials

  • Materials not available in the catalogue can be processed with ActiWiz
