Our linac removal service is quick and efficient. Nobody likes leaving old things lying around, so we make it a top priority to get old linacs removed and disposed of properly. Considering the size and weight of a linear accelerator system, it seems to make sense that linac removal and disposal would be a lengthy and arduous process; not with us!
Recently, we received a service request for linac disposal from Merit Health Biloxi in Biloxi, Mississippi.. Our team of highly trained and experienced service engineers arrived on Friday, August 14 and were able to get the Varian linear accelerator removed and disposed of in a timely and efficient manner. The job was completed on Saturday, August 15, so the job was a total of two days.
“[The Acceletronics] team came down Friday and removed our linear accelerator without a problem. They did a great job and removed it a lot quicker than anticipated.” –Alex Le, Administrative Specialist, Merit Health Biloxi
