The extracted air is then sent to a compression system and stored inside pressurised tanks. A Geiger probe, placed inside a Marinelli system (optional), monitors these tanks. Once the stored radioactive activity has decayed, the air, no longer contaminated, is discharged in the extraction conduit of the laboratory general ventilation.
The compression station can manage one or more COMECER production or handling cells.
Moreover, the compression station can be connected to the cyclotrone vacuum pump. In the event of an accident or failure of the target, the contaminated air is stored in the relative tanks.
