recycling ndt waste

Hi,
Anybody successfully doing this. I have even heard there is money in it?

Spray tins
Developer solutions (separating the silver?)
Vacuum packed film backing (lead)

Care to elaborate anyone?

Recycling the silver out of the spent developer, and developing 'bad' sheets of film for the silver is worth doing. Nothing else is worth the time for a Tech to perform the necessary work. RT film cassettes only have 2 pieces of 0.01" 1/4 mm lead well-adheared to a paper backing. Much more trouble than the lead is worth. Everything else is worse than these.

Thanks Roger,
So not much money in the lead?

Whats the simplest way of getting the silver back.

Im also looking at this from a health and safety side. The spent dev and fix should be sent for treatment or something right? Also spray tins should be separated, also heard of people catching the dpi during the wash and separating that but I guess thats more production line than field work.

We started separating the lead film screens from their package but stopped, I wonder if the local waste company could do something with it.

mances of portable X-Ray sets. Despite having managed to halve the weight of similar portable X-Ray generators available on the market (while continuing to provide the same power output), the SITEX CPSERIES generators feature a shutter, a laser pointer, a beryllium window, an aluminum filter and two integrated diaphragms (customized sizes are available upon request). Without compromising the robustness and reliability for which ICM products are renowned, the small size and light weight of the SITEX CPSERIES will radically change the way that you perform your RT inspections. And you will see a positive impact in terms of both quality and return on investment (ROI).
