Radiological Training for Accelerator Facilities
Contaminated materials are items with fixed or
removable surface contamination.
Activated material is radioactive material
Give examples of destructive
dispersed throughout the item and is not
removable except through some type of
destructive means as discussed below.
a. Activated materials normally do not
present a potential loose contamination
hazard except during activities such as:
Handling coolant water filters.
Target spallation may also create
contamination without any physically
destructive operation applied.
b. Activated materials are normally controlled
based on the external radiation dose rate.
EO-08 IDENTIFY activation
sources at the facility.
All materials located within an accelerator
enclosure have the potential to be
radioactivated if subjected to primary or
Materials that may become radioactive include:
Any material within the accelerator
