    Abstract

    A commercially available inductively coupled plasma (ICP) emission spectrometry system has been modified and placed into operation for the analysis of radioactive samples in support of a separations process plant. The modifications consisted of building a ported hood around the standard torch box, modifying the gas and electrical connections in and to the torch box, providing an off-gas purification system and providing a shielded drain system. The ICP system, its modifications, support equipment, sample preparation, and two years of working experience are described.
