Technology for Surface Preparation, Decontamination & Remote Operations
Innovation and Leadership Since 1983!
Pentek is the industry leader in manufacturing, engineering and designing specialty surface decontamination technologies and processes for various commercial, industrial and nuclear applications.
During the 1979 accident at the Three Mile Island Nuclear Power Plant near Harrisburg, PA, many within the industry realized the lack of nuclear grade decontamination technologies necessary to address this type of sensitive recovery effort. As a result, Pentek has designed and engineered what has become a complete line of innovative surface decontamination and waste packaging technologies. Since 1981, our products have successfully been used for critical work scopes in the nuclear weapons complex, commercial nuclear utility industry, and various DOD sites where strict controls are a prerequisite.
The Pentek system offers a proven, dust-free process with built-in engineering controls that protect both the worker and the surrounding environment during the surface cleaning process. The technology offers a safe and environmentally friendly methodology that removes, collects and packages the waste in a single-step manner
Pentek manufactures the only lead abatement system that combines removal, containment, and final packaging in a single-step process. Because dust and debris are captured at the painted surface and automatically transported directly into 55-gallon disposal drums in a dustless operation, the need for engineered containment and ventilation systems is completely eliminated. Also, since mechanical coatings removal technology is used and nothing is added to the waste stream, only the absolute minimum of hazardous waste is generated for disposal--up to 2,500 square feet of project surface can fit in a single drum. Pentek's fully integrated paint removal and waste packaging system reduces or eliminates the need for worker respiratory protection by operating reliably far below regulatory standards
