Document Title: Automated Radioxenon Sampler-Analyzer
Category: Nuclear Research and Facilities, Security: Local-National-International
Media Type: Photos
Date of Image/Photo: October 1998
Background: ARSA collects air samples, then processes them to trap the radioactive xenon on cold charcoal. The system purifies the radioactive xenon, then transfers it to a nuclear counting system. The different isotopes of xenon are automatically measured, then the results are automatically passed to a data center by communication link. ARSA can be accessed by modem and programmed remotely.
