Scrap Metal Recycling Facilities

Gate Monitoring Systems

Custom designed Accoma® gate monitoring systems to detect radioactive material that may be mixed in with the metal.  These systems are designed and tailored to meet your needs and your budget.  Even though no monitoring system can detect everything, these systems can help reduce the number of rejections.
