is a modern, fast growing company, whose main aim is the development and application
of technologies for industrial cleaning and decontamination of the surfaces.
CLEANING AND DECONTAMINATION OF THE PIPELINE NKT 73 ( Kazakhstan )
RADIATION LEVEL 2.680 uR/h Ra 226, Ra 228, K40
CLEAN PIPELINE WITH NATURAL RADIATION 14 uR/h
Our personnel consist of 45 employees and our vision is to become a leader in the area of A.S.P.O.
industrial cleaning and N.O.R.M. deactivation.
All our technologies are tailor-made according to customer\'s demands, thus improving the efficiency
in operations in production activities, waste management, and all while helping save our environment.
Technologies are very specialized :
A.S.P.O. – design for removal of carcinogenic agents and for perfect cleaning of surfaces from
corrosion, paraffins, mineral deposits, asphalt-pitch deposits and and any other
N.O.R.M. – design for 100 % deactivation of the surfaces contaminated by radionuclides of the class
N.O.R.M. ( Ra 226 - 228, Barium, Thorium, Cesium and others )
Our management, research and scientific teams strive for excellence, quality, and we take pride in
everything we do.
The basic element of our technology consists of a closed cycle of chemical treatments, which enable perfect cleaning
and progressive 100 % deactivation of the contaminated surfaces by applying specially developed solutions.
Solution IFT- C - removes paraffin, asphalt, oil tar and other soft deposits.
Solution IFT- D - removes corrosion, scales and accomplish 100% N.O.R.M. deactivation.
Solution IFT- N - neutralize and preserve surfaces after the cleaning and deactivation.
Operation principle of the IFTsolutions
After a certain period of time the bounding forces between homogenous material and polluted layer of radionuclides
balance each other out. Thanks to the de-emulsifying and sedimentation abilities of the IFT solutions the washed away
radionuclides, salts of other chemical elements, scales and corrosion are separated from the solution and create a
separate waste in the form of sediment at the bottom of the baths. Waste is in solid and insoluble form. Paraffins and
other light deposits float on the surface.
place and the deactivation solution is not contaminated. Impurities from the surface are
very easily removed by flooding of the surface and heavy sediments from the bottom are removed from the solution by
special filtration unit and stored in appropriate plastic containers for permanent storage.
It is possible in some cases to return this radioactive waste back to deep underground.
After the filtration the working solutions used for chemical treatment are replenished to the relevant concentrate and can
be consequently 100% re-use for cleaning.
IFTtechnologies always use water solutions with tensides and inhibitors – on the other hand all other technologies utilised so far are based on the application of concentrated acids and lye.
It practically means that :
On the other hand:

contamination and corrosion
Area and weigh ratios of polluted and contaminated components and equipment before and after the deactivation
are overwhelming – from experience with the cleaning and deactivation of almost 340.000 tons mining pipeline and
deep pumps, we can successfully confirm that weight and area minimalization are around 95-97 %!
Practical example – 110.000 tons of discarded mining pipeline NKT-73 ( unusable due to radioactive contamination )
were stored in the desert occupying 8 km2. After cleaning and deactivation, 95.000 tons were 100% re-usable, 11.000
tons were remelted into the high quality steel and 4.000 tons of low radioactive waste of the class N.O.R.M. were stored
in the plastic containers occupying the area of just 500m2 !!
Working solutions used for chemical treatment are refilled with the relevant concentrate and are consequently
100% re-usable – cleaned and decontaminated material and equipment are returned back into the working process.
Compared to other used technologies, our technologies IFT offer significant benefits:
1. Huge economical savings for the ,,IFT - N.O.R.M. and A.S.P.O.,, technologies user at liquidation of
2. 100% solution of current ecological problems for the ,,IFT - N.O.R.M. and A.S.P.O.,, technologies user.
3. Highly effective, economical and ecological maintenance of the production capacities of the ,,IFT - N.O.R.M and
A.S.P.O.,, technologies user.
In addition, it also offers:
- short working time – substantial increase in work efficiency
- application possible at room temperatures (22°C)
- superior surface of the treated material
- long lifetime of the baths
- ecological, easy waste liquidation
- non complex hygienic or work safety requirements
Products and Services
Apart from our services in the field of cleaning and deactivation of the surfaces we offer our technologies IFT- N.O.R.M. and A.S.P.O. for sale to companies around the world.
In addition we also provide: Establish and operate ecological complex
Cleaning and Deactivation Industrial Complex N.O.R.M. ( that can be stationary or mobile ) could be built anywhere around the world and would fill up technological and ecological gaps in servicing technical equipment.
