Leaders in Radioactive Material Disposal
Qal-Tek Associates is a revolutionary leader in the processing, reutilization, and disposal of radioactive materials. Qal-Tek’s innovative reutilization and disposal services offer clients greater cost savings and reduced liability with the removal and disposal of unwanted radiation sources. With hundreds of licensees across the country now preferring Qal-Tek as an outlet for unwanted sources, word is spreading of our unmatched ability to offer efficient and affordable options.
Qal-Tek has introduced innovative, common sense solutions that eliminate wasteful spending when disposing of unwanted radioactive materials. Our material processing and reutilization methodologies offer you a lower cost and hassle free path. This is why more companies are turning to Qal-Tek as the their choice for eliminating unwanted radioactive sources and devices.
Highly Cost Competitive
Our Source Recovery Program that reutilizes sources for other practical purposes further reduces costs. When taken in total, Qal-Tek’s Reutilization/Source Recovery Program offers source owners the most cost-effective radioactive material disposal pathway in the market.
A key component of our full service matrix lies within our ability to accept radioactive material sources at our facility for processing. Once received, our highly trained experts extract the radioactive sources from the accompanying devices or containers to reduce the overall volume. Further savings are realized through aggregating sources from multiple customers to optimize filling each container before shipping them on to the radioactive material disposal site.
We Takeover Ownership
Unlike radiation brokers, who simply transfer your sources to the radioactive material disposal site where your ownership and liability continues on indefinitely, Qal-Tek takes over full ownership, reducing your risk and liability. We also do all the necessary paperwork to show ownership per the USNRC 10CFR Part 30.41B transfer of by product material.
Radioactive Source Reutilization
Some of the radioactive materials and sources Qal-Tek receives can be reutilized for other useful purposes. This new second life helps reduce waste otherwise headed for finite storage at low level radioactive waste disposal sites and reduces the need for new materials entering the market. Qal-Tek has supplied sources to companies seeking unique sealed radioactive sources or other special sources that might otherwise be too expensive or hard to obtain. Others have sought relatively inexpensive sources for their R&D activities. One of our newest ventures is staging re utilized radioactive sources in emergency training scenarios where trainees are inserted into real-life situations making sources of concern into valuable tools in preventing threats of concern.
