ASME AG-1 is a standard developed by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). AG-1 stands for “Code on Nuclear Air and Gas Treatment.” This standard provides guidelines for the design, construction, and testing of systems for the treatment of air and gas in nuclear facilities. These systems are crucial in nuclear facilities to control radioactive and hazardous airborne contaminants, ensuring the safety of both the facility and the environment.

ASME AG-1 covers various aspects of nuclear air and gas treatment systems, including filtration, ventilation, monitoring, and maintenance requirements. The standard outlines the specific criteria and requirements that these systems must meet to effectively control and mitigate the release of radioactive materials.

It’s important to note that standards such as ASME AG-1 are essential in the nuclear industry to maintain high levels of safety and to comply with regulatory requirements. Facilities that handle radioactive materials must adhere to these standards to ensure the protection of workers, the public, and the environment.
