At the Advanced Test Reactor, asbestos containing insulation located on the experiment loop cubicle piping and components was being abated and replaced with nonhazardous insulation. Historically, as maintenance work was performed in cubicles, only affected sections containing asbestos insulation have been abated prior to work, resulting in repetitive abatement work which resulted in multiple entries into Radiological Areas. The abatement of all the asbestos insulation and its replacement with nonhazardous insulating materials greatly simplifies future work activities. Several good practices in the planning, execution of work, dose reduction and ALARA methods were realized during the performance of this abatement work.
