“Cesium-137 Discovered in Smelter; Compressed into Cube and Prepared for Melting”

A smelter was found with “Casium-137”, which had been compressed and stacked high in a cube, preparing for melting in the evening. Fortunately, the staff were able to use their radiation detection equipment just in time to prevent a tragedy.

Today (March 19), Mr. Ron Ron Nakornchinda, Governor of Prachinburi Province, Mr. Permsuk Satjapiwat, secretary-general of the Office of Atoms for Peace, along with Prachinburi Provincial Industry, Prachinburi Provincial Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Office, and the Department of Provincial Administration, visited the Kabinburi Industrial Area to inspect the work of the Office of Atoms for Peace staff and to inspect operations at two smelters.

One company, which is the largest iron smelting plant, was audited and found to have eight smelting furnaces. Each day, there will be a truckload of scrap iron and smelted steel being moved in and out.

There is reason to believe that radioactive cesium-137 was sold as an antique and may be mixed with the steel that is being brought in. Thus, the Office of Atoms for Peace used their tools to measure and scan for radiation along the piles of scrap metal, including the compressed steel that was going into the furnace.

During the investigation, the detector was found to detect some, but unspecified substances, or radioactive cesium-137, leading Atomic Energy for Peace officers to investigate further. It still remains unconfirmed whether it is radioactive cesium-137, as there are many scrap piles, and it is difficult to bring the measuring device to access.

Additionally, the sludge from the blast furnace was examined and found to contain radioactive cesium-137.

The Office of Atoms for Peace, along with the Governor of Prachinburi Province, police officers governing provincial industry, and the Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Prachinburi Province, have thoroughly checked and confirmed that the substance found in the iron smelter is radioactive material, cesium-137.

As a safety measure, the Province of Prachinburi has announced the closure of the factory and has blocked the area to prevent all employees from leaving. The Governor of Prachin Buri Province will hold a press conference tomorrow (March 20) at 10:00 a.m. at the Learning Center room, 4th floor, Prachinburi Provincial Government Center.

Facebook Sorayut Suthatsanajinda, the news laborer, reported that today (March 19) Mr. Ron Ron Nakornchinda, Governor of Prachinburi Province, Mr. Permsuk Satjapiwat, secretary-general of the Office of Atoms for Peace. Visit the area to inspect the work of the Office of Atoms for Peace staff. along with Prachinburi Provincial Industry, Prachinburi Provincial Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Office, Department of Provincial Administration inspecting operations in Kabinburi Industrial Area, inspecting 2 smelters

From an audit of one company which is the largest iron smelting plant There are 8 smelting furnaces. Each day, there will be a truckload of scrap iron and smelted steel. in and out a lot

It is thought to be where radioactive cesium-137 was sold as antique. May be mixed with the steel that will come in therefore used the tools of the Office of Atoms for Peace to measure, scan for radiation along the piles of scrap metal Including the compressed steel that will go into the furnace.

At some point, while investigating, it was found that The detector may detect some but unspecified substances. Or is it a radioactive cesium-137, causing the Atomic Energy for Peace officers to investigate?

While carefully detecting, it is still not confirmed whether it is radioactive cesium-137 or not because there are many scrap piles. Difficult to bring the measuring device to access

In addition, the sludge from the blast furnace was also examined. Radioactive cesium-137 was found inside the plant.

Most recently, Mr. Ron Ron Nakornchinda, Governor of Prachinburi Province Office of Atoms for Peace Police officers governing provincial industry Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Prachinburi Province inspected The Office of Atoms for Peace has thoroughly checked and confirmed that substances found in the iron smelter. It is a radioactive material caesium-137.

The province of Prachinburi has announced the closure of the factory. and block the area to prevent all employees from leaving the factory for safety and the Governor of Prachin Buri Province A press conference will be held tomorrow (March 20) at 10:00 a.m. at the Learning Center room, 4th floor, Prachinburi Provincial Government Center.



This incident serves as a stark reminder of the potential dangers that come with handling radioactive materials. Thanks to the quick thinking and use of radiation detection equipment by the staff, a tragedy was averted. However, the discovery of radioactive cesium-137 at the smelter has resulted in the closure of the factory and strict safety measures being put in place. As investigations continue, it is important to remain vigilant in the handling and disposal of potentially hazardous materials to prevent any harm to both people and the environment.
