					     AFPC Norm Decontamination Facility Plant
1.         Introduction
-   The passage of produced water through pipe work and plants leads to the
     built up of Norm scale on the inner surfaces, which can present an
     external radiation Hazard during normal operation and an Internal and
   external hazard during maintenance work.
- AFPC have made a policy decision to manage the NORM wastes in
   accordance with best international practice.
- AFPC constructed a Norm Decontamination plant by the AEA

- The AFPC NDF plant is used to remove NORM contaminated scales
   from Production equipments in order to be prepared for re-use or
   safe disposal.
-   The plant is run continuously for 10 HRs per day and 365 days per year
     (except the break down maintenance & De- sludging shutdowns)
-   Sump pumps to transfer process water from the jetting bays / lancing
     machine into settling tanks that designed to allow fine NORM
     particulate to fall out of suspension in the process water stream.
-   The AFPC NDF plant achieves decontamination level down to 0.37
     Bq/Cm² for Alpha radiation and 3.7 Bq/Cm² for Beta radiation.

2. NDF Main Parts:

1- A general area with:
  a) Operators Change room with showers: with barriers and
     monitoring equipments
 b) Visitors Change room with showers
 c) A hooded Gas Cutting area: breathing air supply is
    required for Operators
 d) An active Laundry: with ventilation and waste feed direct
    to a disposal tank
 e) A water Jetting area for Decontamination

2- A Pump House with High Pressure Pumps for Equipments
   * Process water is extracted from settling tanks and
     conveyed to the water filter units, where cartridges will
     remove particulate down to 10 micron.
a) High pressure pump for tubular decontamination
b) Low pressure pumps for sump and water re-circulation
3- Active air samplers to monitor airborne activity and
   ventilation system

Extract Ventilation System
HEPA filters
4- A tubular Decontamination plant for tubes Decontamination:
   - 1000 bar operational pressure
   - It is hydraulically operated and controlled de- scaling
water chiller: is to cool the process water temperature which
  has gained heat after passing through high pressure pumps
  and lances.

5- A lay down area for equipments dismantling to be
6- A Lay down area for decontaminated equipments
7- A temporary waste store building for main and
    secondary waste temporary storage.
8- Health Physics Laboratory
