Protective wear (like boiler suits, hand gloves etc.) is necessary while handling radioactive material in plants/laboratories. During the course of work, it is quite possible that protective wear may get contaminated. These protective wear are packed in laundry bags and send to Decontamination Centre (DC) for washing. There is a need for monitoring the laundry bags at the time of receipt, as well as before dispatch to respective locations to comply with AERB guidelines. To avoid cross contamination during wash cycle, contaminated bags (>0.5 mR/h on surface) need to be segregated. Present paper describes the development of such system for monitoring surface dose rate on bags at the time of receipt.
