LIfting the Outer Lid of a TRUPACT-II

After checking for radiation leakage with dose rate meters and surface swipes, a technician lifts the outer lid of the TRUPACT-II. The inner lid can be seen below. Prior to opening the inner lid, waste handlers will put the Vent Hood Cover around the inner lid and vacuum out the air and any contamination that might be present through a HEPA filter. (USDOE)
